  • If John McCain had won the 2008 election for president (which he overwhelmingly did not), America would still be in a state of perpetual war.
    I wonder what motivates McCain's constant propensity to send our military men and women to any conflict on any continent to be killed, maimed or brought home with PTSD to traumatize the rest of their lives. Whether it is cross-border or internecine warfare, John McCain is the first, loudest voice to hector his years-ago opponent for not dragging us in as superheroes.
    President Obama has managed to clean up the mess after eight tumultuous years of American bravado. His platform is constant; he uses diplomacy, material and training to aid our friends. He brought our troops home as he said he would, recognizing that they are way too valuable to be sacrificed abroad.
    He is doing his best to keep us out of other countries' wars. He is absolutely correct when he says that America cannot solve religious conflicts in Iraq, or elsewhere. It is long past time for Americans to show gratitude to the president for keeping their families and friends home and safe, ready to defend our country should the need arise. — Gail Beason, Talent
