2. Occupation
I thought an occupying force didn't allow free elections? I am sure that the US forces want to come home but I am also sure they don't want to come home defeated by ragtag militants. I could be wrong though.

4. They have been defeated by bad leadership
Who want a state of constant warfare and the money that it pits in their pockets.
The pentagon thought it could fight two wars at once.
The president thought we could do it alone.
They have been betrayed by their leaders who have no interest in bringing them home. The money must keep flowing right out of our treasury and into their pockets.

5. BBC has good coverage of this earlier this morning
Funny how M$M doesn't think the American public should hear the truth.
It was very different during the Vietnam war.

6. Some would say that media coverage was the real "lesson" of Vietnam
Embedded = phony coverage of phony "war."
