“No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” - James Madison, 1795
Sick of all the lies? America is engaged in endless, nation-building missions abroad and it is time we support our troops by removing them from harm's way.

To defeat suicide terrorism, one cannot aggravate the root cause of it in the first place -- 14 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudis who wanted US forces (5,000 to 10,000 strong) off of their country's soil with its holy sites of Mecca and Medina. To defeat suicide terrorism, one must not only capture the current terrorists but also stop the next generation of attackers from growing - this is where the government is actually making our country LESS SAFE from terrorist attacks as seen with the attempted attacks of Zazi in the NYC subway (Zazi was motivated by the deaths of Afghan civilians) and Abdulmutallab on an airliner.
"I will promise you this - that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am President, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank." - Barack Obama, October 27, 2007
"This is the FUNDAMENTAL difference between us. We will end this war. For John McCain, there is no end in sight to end this war. Fundamental difference. We will end this war." - Joe Biden in VP Debate, Washington University, 2008 (1:10 onwards).
