Look at this link: http://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/pet_move_imp cus_a2_nus_ep00_im0_mbbl_m.htm

It’s only a small portion – less than 5% of our total imports. And we are paying market price for the oil. We’re actually getting less now than before Operation Iraqi Freedom!
I have been deployed to Iraq multiple times. I have helped train the Iraqi Army. Our goal was to stabilize their country, help build the Iraqi Army so they could defend their own country and help establish a sovereign Iraqi government that respected human rights. I was there. I saw and participated in what the US forces were doing to assist the Iraqi people. Unless you have been there and witnessed what actually happened – stop spreading the tired old lie about the “only reason” the US started the war!

To lose a brother, son or any other person close to you has to be the single hardest event in a person’s life. I am baffled as to why congress has allowed Obama to continue with his illegal wars. It blows my mind.

We tried to show he mid-east a sane way of living by supporting democracy, but those countries are too grounded in the past to change. We’re in the 21st century, and it’s surreal that countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, and Iran still hold on to their bankrupt medieval cultures. It’s time to get out and let them implode.

The first photo was almost too much to bear. I wish there was a way I could share this photograph…

This Photo should be as famous for our times as the Sailor Nurse
Kiss instead some stupid celeb will get front page cover for breaking a finger nail.
