    So policing the world and having tens of thousands of nukes makes you feel warm and fuzzy..

    $800+ billion spent in Iraq
    4,500 American lives
    100,000+ American casualties
    30,000 Iraqi lives
    300,000 Iraqi casualties
    350 Journalists killed
    450 Academics killed
    1 military-related suicide every 36 hours
    20+ Veteran suicides per day

    Our recent withdrawl from Iraq has revealed PTSD of epidemic proportions. Suicide rates will only go up. They need our help NOW. Our friends and family didn't volunteer for these illegal wars. Ron Paul has more donations from military personnel than all the other candidates do combined. If this isn't a cry for help, I don't know what is.

      You should send GWB a letter since it was his legacy and we still have not located the WMDs.

      ...its Libya! And you need to buy a clue....Ghaddafi was terrorist....state sponsored killing of YOUR FELLOW Americans.... But I would bet living under your pet rock, you didn't know that. More importantly, Obama didn't murder anybody. Have you ever heard of the United Nations? Ever heard of NATO? Ever heard that Ghaddafi's own people caught him hidding in a sewer pipe after claiming he would bleed the streets red with the blood of His Fellow citizens (women and children alike) ? Can you name anyone but you that misses Ghaddafi more than you (they would need to have a brain to qualify as a person) Do you watch anything other than "fake news for idiots"?? Better yet, in what country are you a citizen?

        @ Trace, geraldine is in general an all-around clueless person. He is under the illusion that news about Libya was blacked-out. Maybe it was on Faux but the rest of us received daily


        For a fact geraldine claims he is a loyal American. but his views leaves one to wonder.
