I support The Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act because we should never have invaded that country in the first place and we have a great need to repatriate ALL of our soldiers and ALL of our mercenaries and use our money in much more positive ways.

I support H.R. 200: Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act because involement of more than a decade of war. Let's don't forget that Bush bumbed the country for one man & he was killed several years ago. The regime has been changed & billions were spent. Stop the war & spend the much needed money in this country when it is so desperapely needed.

I support H.R. 200: Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act because there is nothing more we can accomplish there. We desperately need every dollar here at home that we are sending to the drug lords and Karzi. We have poor to support, children to educate, adults to put to work, infrastructure to rebuild, etc. It sounds like we are Afghanistan, doesn't it?

I oppose H.R. 200: Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act because the job is not done over there, and any unilateral withdrawal will result in a price to be paid later. All the excitement over "ending the war" is premature, and is nothing more than a petty exercise in undoing all the work we did over there in the last decade. The Democrats seem happy to gut our military and hand Afghanistan over to the warlords, especially if it can contribute to making the efforts of George W. Bush out to be futile and hopless. It's nice to see that the progressives care so much about America's veterans that they're willing to destroy the military and send us all packing out into a civilian world with zero growth, no jobs and few opportunities. All this while Democrats throw multi-million dollar parties at our expense. Welcome to the fall of Rome...
