    The first time must have affected his brain… or maybe he’s a really brave soldier!

    Ray’s a Top? I didn’t know that. Need to catch up!

    I don’t want to understand that.

    Again, this is all building directly on Ray’s last leave and visit with BD.

    The Corps taught us there was a special place in Heaven with 72 victims.

    Okay, the Vietnam parallels are accumulating. Time to get out of Afghanistan and let the tribal bloodletting resume. Our intentions were laudable and our military was magnificent, but lipstick on a pig has never worked.

    Specialist has been eating to many “final meals” at the chow hall. And Doc needs to wear scrubs.

    I think it is okay, Potrzebie. The doc has walked away from the exam area. He still has the surgical cap on but perhaps he ditched the surgical coat after completing the examination of his patients.

    Bringing 1 soldier home constitutes “beginning troop withdrawal”. You will recall that we began troop withdrawals from Iraq several years ago. The real test will be not when they begin but when they’re finished.

    I vote for “tomorrow”, sooner if possible.

    We need to get our Troops out of Iraq yesterday and out of Afghanistan tomorrow. Let the Arab people and the Arab League handle their own mess and then start closing down unneeded and unnecessary overseas bases in Europe and Asia.

    Afghanistan was actually stable up until the US fooled Russia into thinking Afghanistan was going to do some thing to them. Wasted 10 years, men and materiel and messed up that country good. It helped to bring down Russia who has the economy the size of Denmark.

    We are still occupying Iraq with no end in sight. None of those bases will close and the US wants to be in the background ready to deploy to help the local puppet gov’t “maintain order” as any good protectorate should.

    Since we’re looking at (probably) a century of “asymmetrical” warfare against jihadists, it’s unrealistic to talk of “bringing home our troops.” The dream of an America at peace with the world was shattered forever by 9/11. Only the christlibs continue to dwell in their solipsistic, pacifist utopia where the first rule is not to anger our enemies. (Any nation that excites envy will also arouse enmity.)

    By all means bring home the bulk of our forces in the Middle East, but leave enough of them in place to support special operations like the Seals who carry on the limited, half-secret wars that have come to define the 21st century.

    Can I be in his outfit?

    palin drome - I have to disagree with the idea of a century of jihadist warfare. If politicians believe it then it becomes self fulfilling. But it is both avoidable and unlikely.
