    Meanwhile, the President laughs it up with his chosen press cronies. May God be with our troops throughout the world. They have no leader except for the military generals.

    Anonymous:....And your steadfast refusal to accept cold, hard facts equally amazes me. Once again you have proved the old saying: "If you want to make a conservative angry, lie to him. If you want to make a liberal angry, tell him the truth."

    Mr T, of intelligence and understanding, this just goes to show you how well trained our hero soldiers are these days. I think when D-Day came into play, a lot of soldiers didn't have the training they needed, just the desperation of saving themselves if they could. Also, lets face it, all odds were against them since the position was very difficult. Its a testiment to our solders that help keep Anonymous free to blog as they wish to. I cannot wait until Iraqis are free and able to take care of themselves. Wolfgang, Obama is too worried about making open gayness in the military to be bothered with winning anything. This way when a soldier is gay, they will know who to send out on convoy first. You tell, not swell, why Obama wants gay men and women as targets I will never understand....

    To Anonymous: While you're at it, you can lay the blame for 9/11 right at the feet of the liberal's hero, Mr. Bill Clinton. Remember back in the mid-'90s when the Sudanese captured Bin Laden and offered him to us ? Ol' Bill turned them down, and how well did that work out for us ?

    Hi Anonymous - We must also charge all the Democrats who gave there approval for the war. Lets start with Joe Biden 4,316 counts of murder.

    Good. That means that Bush and his other cronies can be charged with 4,316 counts of murder.

    I wonder how many Americans died in Obama's war since he got elected.

    Still less than what was lost in one day in some of the WWII battles.
