Bergdahl = 6 Dead Americans + 5 Terrorists?
Was the trade worth the price?
Pointless war = 1,000s of dead Americans + 100,000s of dead Middle Easterners + creation of 10,000s of new terrorists, so who gives a flipping crap.
If you vote for war, then guess what? You get war. Soldiers die. Sometimes soldiers are captured. Sometimes soldiers die trying to get back captured soldiers, and sometimes prisoners are exchanged. This has been true of every war ever fought and every war yet to be fought.
Bush would have made the same deal, and if he had, FOX News would be out waiving flags and saying how "no soldier is left behind".
This is simply more ridiculous partisan nonsense from the we-hate-Obama-but-don't-have-anything-constructive-to-do-or-say-club. It's really just embarrassing.
Certainly not worth It as it will give encouragement to Islamic terror groups to kidnap more Americans. As far as Berddahl , he needs to be court martialed as a deserter and a disgrace.
“The United States has always had a pretty sacred rule, and that is: we don’t leave our men or women in uniform behind,” Obama said in Warsaw, Poland. “Regardless of the circumstances, we still get an American soldier back if he’s held in captivity. Period. Full stop.”
Any prez who doesn't feel the same way does not deserve the job.

We sri lankans were under the threat of bombs at any time of the day before May 2009. This was normal for 30 years (more than my age). So my life was always under threat of a blast. So I know Sri Lanka must have peace as soon as possible at any cost. We defeated LTTE terrorism and achieved peace -...

What is worse: arms dealing, war for profit or urinating on the dead bodies of the enemy?Some US soldiers are in trouble for unrinating on dead Afghani insurgents. Does this strike anyone else as a little bizarre? The act of urination on a dead body is abhorrent - no argument there.However isn't...

Should we feel sympathy for soldiers who willingly sign up for war and die in war?This is a serious question. Why should we feel sympathy for people who knowingly and willingly join the military to go to war and fight? 18 year-old children are not experienced enough, nor intelligent enough to...

Besides Demonstrating Stupidity, What is the Point of Declaring War On Islam?Many Americans don't care about the historical record. However the record does show that throughout the years Christian countries have committed as many atrocities, if not more, as the Muslim countries. As recent as...
