Well, apparently Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell seems to think you folks kinda signed up for this.....
"I won't tell you everything is great in Iraq; it is not. But we want to keep a steady flow of funds so that we don't disrupt the military,” said McConnell. “Unfortunately, most of our friends on the other isle are having a hard time admitting things are getting better; some days I almost think the critics of this war don't want us to win. Nobody is happy about losing lives but remember these are not draftees, these are full-time professional soldiers."
BTW, last time I checked, members of the National Guard and Reserves, who have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, are not "full time" professional soldiers. But I guess Sen. McConnell, who has never served in the military in any capacity, may not be aware of this.
most of us have been questioning it since the very day the government put into it play.
