Do YOU think we should still be there?

In the middle east? I realize we've been there since probably before Desert Storm, but with the budget cuts in OUR heath care, education, and even natinoal security, not to mention releasing criminals from prisons because we can't afford to keep them there, do you think it's logical to continue to fight a war that costs us billions of dollars a year when this war is pretty much "unwinnable"? I'm of course talking about the wars in Iraq and Afgahnistan. I believe that the day after the budget cuts was announced, we gave Egypt $25 million.

Thoughts?

Nope. We should have been out of there a very long time ago. We need to stop trying to be the world's police force. I do believe though that if certain people have their way, we'll still be there 10 years from now.

Nope.. however, Troops have to be out of Afghanistan by 2014.

I think that all payouts to foreign countries need to stop until we get our own taken care of. (Yes, including Israel.)
