Since I have broken my pledge not to spend any time typing that isn't absolutely necessary to pay bills, etc., I guess I'll "go for broke".
I want the troops home safe now.
I want it so badly it is distracting and depressing. I alternately avoid and devour news of the Afghan and Iraq wars; I never get used to the pictures of the carnage.
My countrymen are over there and they are hurting and I can't figure out what I can do to get them out. This is a more emotional issue for me than immigration (though I don't believe any issue is more important than immigration), and until now I have said little about it online because I have so little to offer.
I want an American pullout from Iraq and Afghanistan to begin this very minute, and taking only enough time to get out all of our people and equipment. I know it will take a long time ... all the more reason to not delay.
There. That is enough online emoting, and wrist-straining, for one night.
