18. And that folks, is why Democrats lose the "security" vote...
I can tell you that the good majority of our troops are not there subjagating people to inhumane treatment or harassing a population, yes I am sure it happens, but to paint with such a broad brush is ingenuine and disrespectful to the thousands over there trying to do their duty in a way that honors their service.

you don't have to agree with the war, I surely don't, but to say that our troops aren't trained to be humane is ignorant.
