@ utefan60, happy valley heretic, ft and garyO:There is no
legitimate comparison between McCaine's situation and Bergdahl's. The
first was a true war hero and the latter was basically a traitor per his own
admission of facts. If he had a decent defense to his actions, Obama
would've had it all over in the media by now. But there is no answer to
Bergdahl's actions, so Obama is remaining quiet and hoping everyone will
soon forget about his ill-advised and give-away swap.It's
almost pathetic to read the extent that Obama apologists will go to in making
excuses for his ridiculous actions. The funny thing is, is that some of them
almost seem to believe the excuses they come up with. Thankfully, polls show
that most Americans don't buy into such actions. That's why
Obama's poll numbers are now at all-time lows. And for good reason.
There are 3 facts that are not even debatable...1) Bergdahl left on
his own accord. As such, he deserted his unit when officially going AWOL.2) The enemy (Taliban) celebrated after the swap and publically declared
that they got the better deal and had out-foxed the Americans. As such, they
didn't leave much to celebrate from our end of things. Based on things the
Taliban said, they probably would've swapped for only 1 or 2 of their
higher ranking officials instead of the 5 we agreed to. It's little wonder
they celebrated and laughed at us afterwards.3. This is the first
time in modern day history that we have officially negotiated with terrorists.
Not a good precedent. Terrorists are now more likely to kidnap Americans to
negotiate with again in the future.Considering all 3 facts... this
was not a smart move by the Obama administration.
GaryO,You're joking?There are other ways to have
soldiers released! Open your mind!Where's your sympathy for
our Marine in Mexico?
Pathetic, political, US security-endangering move by BOWhat a
complete coward BO is, with nothing but politically motivated grandstanding.
Hey Worf -“Our soldier was not a prisoner. He made a decision
to go, and live there.”Oh I see . . . . So the guy has a
bondage fetish, Right?I’ve heard about that sort of thing . .
. Seems kind of extremist to me though.He wanted to be incarcerated
in a tiny little box, and then ritually abused by Taliban thugs . . . And of
course the Taliban complied because they’re into Sado-Masochism, bondage,
and the whole master-slave thing.Tell me . . . did this involve
leather whips and chaps?
Our soldier was not a prisoner. He made a decision to go, and live there.These five Hitler types of terrorists, has previously killed tens of
thousands. Do the research!"isn't even a drop in the
bucket"? GaryO! You're amazing
I for one am very happy that our government fulfilled it's commitment and
brought home one of our own. McCain was brought home during the Vietnam war
with a prisoner exchange. This is only a mean spirited political ploy.
What complete cowards, with nothing but political motivated grandstanding.Without all the facts these men believe in leaving our servicemen behind,
Hey Worf -"Five Hitler types of terrorists who have vowed to
kill Americans if freed."Yes, and they can join the tens of
thousands of other terrorists America has created in the Mid East since 2003 . .
. When GW attacked a nation that did not attack us first . . . And killed over
ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND of their people.Now, tens of thousands of their
enraged friends and relatives are dedicated to the death of America and
Americans.Five more isn't even a drop in the bucket.
LOLI just love it when the Tea-Party infested House of
Representatives shows its true stripes.Obama traded 5 Taliban thugs
for an American servicemen. Obama left no man behind as consistent with the
soldiers' creed, common sense, and basic humanity.And
Republicans absolutely DESPISE him for it.That in turn shows how
out of touch Republicans really are with common sense and basic humanity.Thanks for the demonstration Repubs.As a result of that
demonstration, even more sensible voters will sensibly cross over to the
Democratic side . . . The side of common sense and humanity.
Israel has traded up to 1,000 terrorists for one soldier. But over there, when
they say "thank you for your service". Its more then just empty words.
Five Hitler types of terrorists who have vowed to kill Americans if freed.There were other methods for freeing our prisoner then releasing these
Can Obama not do anything right?the guy gets an "F" even
before he steps off the white house lawn?Who is advising this
guy......is his ideology so huge that he couldn't see this Bergdahl mess as
Pathetic, political move by the GOP.
