Where are Bush and Cheney and why are they and their administration not being held accountable for this tragedy? Oh wait, the history books are being written now...never mind.

Why isn't Obama, our out of touch president, looking at getting back into Iraq. He said(another lie) that it was time to pull out of Iraq. Why are we still in Afganistan? Hint: for political purposes.

During the Bush/Cheney administration, we installed this puppet government. Now Obama has to try to clean up this mess too? Nope, stay out of Iraq, which is what we should have done, in the first place many years, and American lives ago. As for Afghanistan, the same scenario exists. No matter how long we stay, the minute we leave, a civil war will happen. We cannot be the policeman here (or anywhere!) and shouldn't be. The minute Bin Laden was killed, in Pakistan, we should have begun removing our troops from Afghanistan, but our congress decided to draw down slowly, and President Obama agreed. Years from now, the history books will tell you if this was right or wrong. Personally, I despise any chicken hawk politician who sends our troops anywhere, with no real mission. Tell me why we are still in Afghanistan? Wave the flag? Show the world how tough we are? Because we can? Tell that to the parents of the kids killed there and try to justify this..... I dare you.
