So, it's politics time. I'm not going to go into much about what I think of each candidate, but I will say this about the war in Iraq: I've held the opinion for some time that if we withdraw our troops now, it was all a waste. It would be a waste of money, of time, and the one that hits the closest to many of our homes--a waste of American soldiers' lives. What we stand for as a nation is freedom. We are known as a nation that doesn't fight wars on our own turf: we fight elsewhere for basic human rights of others'. That's what we're doing in Iraq, is fighting so that Iraqis will have freedom and democracy and basic rights that as Americans we believe are the "right" of every human being to have. I'm a supporter of the war, even knowing that my little brother is considering enlisting when he graduates from high school in May. My father-in-law sent me the following video, which was not paid for by McCain, and I thought I'd post it because it heavily echos my own feelings. It was made by an Iraq veteran, and I just think it's cool.
