18. As the wife of US soldier and veteran, I'm completely outraged.
I understand that many of these people believe they are defending their country. When my husband was there, he even understood, but he NEVER raped, killed, or injured any Iraqi people.

I'm surprised that some people say it is just ok to tell people we don't care if you kill our troops in Iraq.

For the scum that we have for a president to agree to something like this is just unbelievable!!! I feel the same rage I felt when my husband was in Iraq and that stupid MF got on TV and said to those trying to kill US troops, "bring 'em on!"
