    If they let our boys shoot first, this wouldn't have happened. The only way to win that war over there is to level that country and every Afghan in it.

    Too many, too young, too soon. I want the troops to be pulled from the Middle East, and to come home to protect our USA. God Bless the men and women of the military.
