8. here's some outrage! my latest LTTE
Donald Rumsfeld just announced that he would be delaying the departure of 3700 troops home from Iraq.

It has also been disclosed today that the Army is running out of money to pay said troops and will need to borrow from funds set aside for equipment repair to pay the troops for the last 5 weeks of the fiscal year.

This borrowing from the budget will intensify the combat equipment shortage already present in Iraq.

This is what happens when you send soldiers to fight a war based on profit and favors.You can thank your Republican lawmakers for this-they control Congress,and THEY granted the contracts.Republicans DO NOT support our soldiers and veterans.They have gone out of their way to run this war on the cheap,and to NOT take care of our wounded when they come home.Does this infuriate you?Oh-probably not-most of you don't even KNOW a soldier,let alone have to worry about one 24/7.3700-I think we could find that many young men in Ellis County to go to Iraq,so that these brave soldiers can come home.Pick which of your sons you want to donate as cannon fodder.The collective apathy of Texans sickens me.
