I'm tellin' ya folks, I am a vet (hon. disch. 1972) and this business of continual poorly managed and discretionary wars is rotten - just plain rotten and corrupt.  It is a horror, and I hope that President Obama, who is the best President we have had in DECADES can find a way to end it all and re-think America as a war-making country.
