Politics for a moment-
So many people have been circulating a statement around that goes somewhat like this: Obama didn't get Osama Bin Laden, the soldiers did. Ok, well, technically that's true. POTUS did not fire the weapon that killed Bin Laden, he just ordered the mission to be done. If we were to extend the same logic we could say that Bush did not send the military into Iraq and Afghanistan- the military just decided to go there and fight- because they just wanted to.
I'm all for supporting the military, don't get me wrong, but there are some people who are so adamant about bashing Obama as a President that they cannot give him credit for any action he takes whatsoever. They would rather believe that the military are acting on their own than accept he had anything to do with this. I call that just petty.
I am so tired of the birthers making an issue about his Birth certificate. He's a natural born citizen- born from his mother, who was a US citizen. Even if he was born overseas somewhere, the fact that his mother was a US citizen, makes him one. If Donald Trump wants to continue to make an issue about it, he should remember that several of his children have foreign born mothers (since he keeps trading his wives in for a later model)
I never thought we should have sent the military into Afghanistan but now that the "reason" is over, let the military action be over as well. Why should the US be fighting a war in a country that, ultimately, our enemy was not found? Someone needs to read a history book and get the heck out of there.
I know those who have family members who served , or are serving in the military in Afghanistan need to have pride in their soldiers and they need to have a reason for all the anxiety and hardship they have endured for this cause. I get it.
