I agree totally with Mr. Paul Dokken.
Why, indeed, should we involve ourselves once more in something that is none of our business in Iraq? We have lost enough of our men and women in that thankless hellhole, and they do not appreciate it one bit!
If they are too cowardly to fight for their own independence, why should I support sending my son, who has already spent two years of his life in Iraq and one year in Afghanistan, all years away from his wife and children? Why should my son have to risk his neck again to try to show those barbarians how civilized people live? Let them kill each other off. I don't care anymore, and I do not support one bit my son having to go anywhere else to support Islamists who hate us and who do not want us there!

The military no longer has a president who has their backs! Obama can't even or won't even respond to his ambassadors when they are under direct attack, so how can I trust him with my son's life?
Mr. Farah, send your own kids there if you are so anxious to have armed troops there again! Yes, let you own kids go over there, and you see what it is like for a parent to spend 365 days at a time worrying themselves sick, not sleeping, not being able to concentrate on anything much at all because you are so worried that you will lose that child 8,000 miles from home for people who hate him and do not appreciate the sacrifice! You do it, Mr. Farah – you send your children over there and then we'll talk.
