Failed Iraq policy

I am outraged that after three years we are even deeper in the quagmire that is the Iraq war. I resent the fact that I am considered unpatriotic when I refuse to support a war that was entered into on false premises – lies – told to Congress and the rest of America. I support our troops and not the president’s administration that put them, without adequate weaponry, armor, or pay, in harm’s way for the sake of oil profits for already obscenely wealthy cronies. I am ashamed that our elected representatives are having such a hard time finding the courage to uphold the laws and hold the president accountable for his actions. Mostly, I am terribly afraid that we are spawning future terrorists faster than we can kill them.
