    How come everyone is so darn quiet about “pulling out of the countries” now that we have Obama. Weren’t you all upset about that, and he was going to bring “change.” Same old, people, except now you’re quiet about it.

    Yeah, thanks for your service.

    Obama should give back the Nobel Peace prize, he didn’t earn it anyway, but he expanding the war. Come to think of it, how many wars we in now?

    Martin Luther King would be marching in the streets against Obama
