    If Obama hadn’t negotiated for Bergdahl’s release, this cartoon would be instead criticizing Obama for not negotiating for his release.

    U.S. Policy: Leave no soldier behind.

    I guess this one won. Support the troops!

    Say, Robert Ariail, these ‘terrorists’, they received a fair trial to be labelled as such? Or are they ‘enemy combatants’? This negotiating with the Taliban, in their country, which your country invaded a few years back, they are all terrorists? What is their definition of American/Coalition forces in Afghanistan? Your country’s support of a corrupt government in Kabul should be called what exactly? Or, these guys in Gitmo, if they were Taliban, and captured in Afghanistan, were they POWs? How long were they in Guantanamo, that camp representing the auge of your country’s doctrine of one’s right to a fair trial, an essential right in all countries respecting the rule of law?


    Tch, dunno, Robert, but from over here, it doesn’t look pretty.
    Just a couple of weeks ago I was complimenting your cartoon.
    Not today.

    When George III of England called we colonists traitors who he could kill because we resisted THAT empire, we were the good guys (even our friends from France who helped us). When George III of Washington D.C. went to a couple of countries resisting OUR (his?) empire, they were all terrorists for defending THEIR nations and homelands. Interesting.

    “We’ve left lots of service people behind….”

    I read an article in a military magazine about ten years ago, but I haven’t read anything else about it since. As the war in Europe ended in May 1945, there were thousands of American POWs in German camps which were over-run by the Red Army. And, there were many Russian prisoners in the West, including many who fought against Stalin & his regime. Stalin DEMANDED their return, and Roosevelt & Churchill complied, but Uncle Joe never returned to us our men. Roosevelt and the military were so afraid of the predicted casualties in invading the Japanese Islands that they were prepared to sacrifice anything to get the Russians to declare war on Japan. If this is true, it is the greatest stain on the White house of all time!

    He’s looking for some Nicaraguan terrorists to arm and wants to find out if Iran needs any missiles. Oh,wait, no, that was Reagan.

    That would not be, the choice was made and that time line is no more.

    Republicans supported negotiating for his release up until he was released. Then they complained about it. This isn’t about negotiating with terrorists or a POW/deserter. This is about Republicans scoring political points against Obama.

    “Walked off”, like “W” from the National Guard; Sarah Palin half way through her term; “W” again, leaving the pursuit of bin Laden to get even with Saddam??


    It appears this action may well make it easier and a few degrees safer for our troops as we LEAVE THIS WAR BEHIND! We need to totally get out of Afghanistan and Iraq, even if our original intent WAS to maintain permanent forward bases in those countries, to watch Iran (for Israel’s benefit?).


    Yes, maybe we do need to “walk off”, and indeed leave these countries to their own devices, like freedom to live THEIR way.

    @Jase99

    A few months before his release we were attending a biker rally and there was a booth raising funds for efforts to increase awareness of Bergdahl’s plight, but it wasn’t until he was released that the allegations of “deserter” came to light and that I question.

    I love that right wingnuts forget that St Ronnie traded guns to terrorists to fund other terrorists. Nice selective memory they have

    What service member has the US knowingly left behind?

  13. dtroutma

    dtroutma GoComics PRO Member said, about 2 years ago

    wbr: wake up! Only two documents, of many submitted and proven true, along with testimony of his fellow officers, definitely cleared up that “W” left, and only because of political clout was his desertion “forgiven” as he left short of his enlistment period, among other “problems”. BTW, my best friend was also in the Texas National Guard at the same time, served his full time, to avoid going to ’Nam like me, and as a confirmed Texan and right-winger his whole life, he too said “W” clearly deserted under the rules HE had to abide.

    “did you not hear dan rathers lost his job for telling this lie// the daily mail reported that its pentagon contact told it that this is how bho is going to empty gitmo”

    1) Dan Rather was fired because he presented something as evidence without first verifying its validity. It’s thought the papers Rather presented were planted to discredit him and the deserter allegations.
    2)The Daily Mail is a reactionary, sensationalist tabloid with little to no credibility amongst the British populous. They make the National Enquirer look reputable.
