Looks like Iraq is "Mission Accomplished" afterall

I wasn't the biggest fan of the Iraq war. Even with that being said, I supported the troops accomplishing their goals in order to stabilize Iraq so they could come home victorious. Of course liberals only cared about blaming GW Bush and not the Muslim Extremists who were killing U.S soldiers. To them it was merely political football as usual. I think back to when George Bush landed on the flight deck of the USS Lincoln back on the second month of May 2003. This is right after American soldiers rolled into Baghdad and secured the capital. The mission at the time was accomplished. The banner the navy placed on the USS Lincoln sent liberals into a rag. Every time a U.S soldier was killed thereafter, liberals would mockingly say "mission accomplished" as a way for them to lash out at Bush and those who supported the operation in Iraq. Liberals called Iraq effort a "quagmire" similar to that of the Vietnam War. Ultimately it turned out that they were being melodramatic in their claims. Thursday, U.S Combat troops pulled completely out of Iraq thus ending military operations. Only 50,000 soldiers now remain in Iraq for the purpose of training Iraqi forces. I didn't see or hear any of the Bush haters crowing Mission Accomplished Thursday. I guess it really doesn't matter to them since Bush isn't president anymore. The victory in part goes to George Bush but the overall victory goes to the U.S Military in Iraq who made it possible for them to say "Mission Accomplished" with their heads held high as they come home.

I hated how the Left politicized the war. I thought the whole point of waging a war was to defeat your enemies and to defend your national interests. I hated how they gleefully mentioned how many U.S. troops were killed like points on a scoreboard. The left regarded troops lives as a bargaining chip throughout the Bush years.

That is all the left knows how to do is politicize. They politicize their own children and the funerals of people they claim to care about. They are worse then scum.

I protested the war in February 2003, but it was the combination of my 3 sons doing multiple tours in Iraq, including the initial invasion, and the absolute disrespect and disregard for them by the "left" that changed our family's thinking.

I was totally disgusted by the democrats putting the "left" up to doing their political dirty work. At least we hear next to nothing from their icons now - Sheehan, Code Pink, Joe Wilson/Plame, Watada, etc. etc. etc. and Dennis Kucinich.

I hate how now that Obama is president the Left expects us to forget about how they treated George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. They act like our criticism of Obama is the equivalent to the raw hatred they have displayed for George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. There is no comparison. I criticize Obama based on his politics.

I know the difference between disagreement and passionate hatred. The Left's calls for civility and maturity are hypocritical and disingenuous.

They need to shut up already!
