275 troops is not a sufficient number to conduct active combat operations. These troops are probably just for added security and in preparation for an evacuation contingency. It kind of amazes me that so many in the press see such an insignificant number of troops as some kind of major commitment; it isn't. Its just enough to shore up embassy security and to help facilitate getting people out if necessary. And with all due respect, that's kind of obvious.

Of course they'll support Brat now. Just wait until the general election though. You'll see a fickle about-face quicker than you can say Chrissy Tingles.
Alright, at this point I think its getting really hard to think all this stuff isn't intentional. If I had to guess, I'd have to say what we're seeing is Cloward-Piven strategy on overdrive. And still, half the electorate sleeps on... This can't end well.
I think the more recent rightward shift in the Republican party towards the right is a reflection of their dissatisfaction with uber liberal policies. They see what they see and, despite the fact that many supported more moderate stances, they don't like the results.
"Hard Choices' is...written so carefully not to offend that it will fuel the notion that politics infuses every part of her life." Sounds pretty accurate to me.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is how they're going to shove amnesty down our throats. This has come about so suddenly, that I can't help but think its orchestrated.
We had a sailor on one of the submarines I served on that refused to shoot a black silhouette target because he thought it was racist. The small arms petty officer, a torpedoman's mate second class, made him a negative image target where the silhouette was white and the background was black. He also blew up an image on the copier of David Duke's face and stuck it on the target where the head is. We laughed so hard we could hardly shoot straight.

"If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone." These are the words of a mature adult in a position of responsibility. Contrast these words with the tap dancing done by this administration when they screw-up. Think about it the next time you hear the Dems tell you they are 'the adults in the room.' They sure don't act like it.
No money? Must've dropped it on the tarmac in Kosovo when you were dodging sniper fire.
I couldn't agree more with everything in your post. Right on the mark. I have been sickened over the willful ignorance displayed by many of my fellow Americans. When we have become so foolish and complacent, I fear we are approaching the end of the republic.
liosonacid: "so - he never gets to tell his side; guilty before proven innocent is the new norm? " I usually don't waste my time with bona fide knuckleheads, but this idiotic statement tasks me. All of the soldiers on Fox last night, people who served right next to Bergdahl, ALL say they want to hear his side of the story. Every one of them. You really are dense.
