    If that moron Obama wins the General Election and has both houses of Congress all kinds of bad things are going to happen. One of them is that the military is going to be destroyed. It was hurt bad enough with Carter and Clinton but you ainít seen nuttin yet until you see what Obama will do.

    Not only will be cut and run in Iraq but I suspect Obama will raid the defense budget to pay off his sleazy special interest groups. I suspect many defense program will be cut back or eliminated. Training will suffer.

    The biggest problem I can see is that American middle class kids wonít join the service in this all volunteer military. I suspect troop morale will decline significantly and the enlistment rate will drop. Fewer people will reenlist. Everybody will be trying to get out.

    Like with Clinton brave men and women who served our country honorable will not even hang their Honorable Discharge papers on the wall because they will be ashamed to have Obamaís name on it.

    I think he will pretty well destroy the military. Of course being the dishonest Liberals that he is he will blame it on Bush, or something.

    While I agree with you, I'm surprised to see that you believe leaving Iraq is cutting and running. I would think that is the one positive you can find from Obama's potential presidency.

    I have said many times recently that I don't have a clue why we invaded Iraq but since we are there we need to complete the mission then extract ourselves from Middle East politics.

    I agree with all you say, but the problems associated with a complete political extarction are huge. Especially since we'll have a strong ally in Iraq, once the mission is complete.

    I was in the Army under Nixon, Ford, and Carter while on AD. The minimum I expect fom and Obama administration would be cuts in training and weapons development. The quality of the force will be reduced because anyone who can retire will retire. Many NCOs and offciers with less than 10 years service will probably get out as well since they won't see a bright future in tehir chosen field.

    I see no good for the country in general iof Obama is elected.

    When I was a kid, we were the United States of America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Now, we're America, Land of the Sheep and Home of the NaÔve.

    Live each day as if you're going to die tomorrow. Learn each day as if you'll live forever.

    I saw that when Clinton was elected. Many good folks in the military opted out. One major told he (after he left the military and kept a position as a civilian at the same facility) that he "won't salue that man". This will happen even more with Obama.

    What these stupid Left Wingers don't understand is that military service is voluntary and that many Patriotic Americans will opt not to serve a Socialist government.

    They remember American troops being used to kill Christians in Europe and being used to do worthless things like going after the warlords in Somalia during the administration of the last Socialist president.

    We will never be able to completely extract ourselves from Middle East politics.

    Not if we continue like we are now and make the security of Israel the cornerstone of American foreign policy.

    Obama will make Clintonís dismemberment of our Armed Forces seem like childís play. If heí allowed to become Commander in Chief the US Marines will be deployed with flowers in their hair.
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Israel aside, there is still the issues of dealing with OPEC, the geography of the ME with respect to shipping lanes, and particularly the fact that the three major world religions have their seats in the region, with Islam having the strongest presence.

    The Middle East is going to be a headache unless we can finally convince the theocracies of the region to accept modern concepts of democracy and equality.
