Despite claims by prominent Democrats and certain Republicans that the time has come to end the bloodshed in Iraq and bring the troops home, the truth is, it’s politics as usual in Washington.

They may want to end the war bungled by Republicans, but they refuse to end the escalation of the American war machine. . . . Have you heard the Democrats leap up in unison to end this madness? They know they are not just funding better body armor or prosthetics for our soldiers. They know they fund the gear that makes prosthetics necessary.” Follow this link to read the entire article.
