    Hey now no need to dis on Western Iowa, there are a lot of good people there. Not to mention that is where I grew up (so I might be biased) and yes I am a Republican.

    I think a lot of terrorist would be happy if either Clinton or Obama got in office because they want to bring home the troops very soon. I would love for the troops to come home but not until the job is done.

    Whether or not you agree with why we went over to Iraq, the bottom line is we are there and we need to finish what we started. If we do not then it will become a hot bed for terrorist to strike the US. I have a lot of friends that are in the military and they have been re-enlisting so they can go back because they believe in the cause. I understand this is a small sampling but I have heard the same from other people.

    The other argument is usually if you think we should fight why don't you go and fight yourself. Well the answer is I tried to enlist and no branch would take me because of my knees and shoulders. (sorry got off topic there)

    They go back because they realize they can't make as much money and feel like they are somebody special back home. Stop being so delusional.

    Just because someone doesn't agree with you or they bring up personal experiences that you don't believe or agree with does not make that person delusional or an idiot.

    For the record they are all very bright people, over half of them are either have some or a full college education. Actually they would make more money outside fo the military than they do in the military. They go over there to fight for something they believe in.

    Please dude, even I was thinking of enlisting in 2000 and I am not patriotic at all. When they promise to pay off your $50K plus loans from college plus give you a salary plus an enlistment bonus of $40K and all paid expensers, you sign up. Its actually the best deal for the college grads. They make over $300K cash in 4 years if you consider how much the loans would cost them over 25 years. Not a bad deal at all. Plus Americans call you a hero!

    Big,

    Again that is how you look at it, from the money aspect however, not everyone thinks the same way. Whether or not you want to believe it there are people that join and re-enlist because they believe in what they are doing.

    No problem. Chance just thinks young Americans go to safe Iraqis rather than spend time in America on sheer honesty when in reality its just a good payday.
