What's the point?

Mr. Bush, why are we there again?

But General Caldwell did explain for the first time why it took 56 minutes for American reinforcements to arrive at the scene of the ambush. His statement said that the two units sent to the scene discovered roadside bombs along the way.

Those two units were attempting to relieve a group of soldiers who'd come under attack. Three of them were abducted.

So not only do we lose soldiers in an attack, we can't get to them in a sensible amount of time because the roads are mined.

Screw it. Get out and get out now.

Even my Republican father-in-law is disgusted with those bozos.

As a Soldier, I can tell you that we never quit. That's the reason you all have the right to post this comments

Brian, if you're really a soldier, I'm not suggesting you quit. I'm suggesting your civilian bosses quit, thereby relieving you of a thankless useless duty in which your odds of survival seem to be diminishing by the day, to no particular good purpose.
