7. A parade? For what?

I know that we are supposed to honor our military men and women and their sacrifice for this country but, frankly, given the circumstances of our "involvement" in Iraq and the fact that 4-5K soldiers (and countless Iraqis) died needlessly over there in the Bush/GOP "war of choice", getting them out of there was actually the best possible way to honor them IMHO. And no, this "war" with Iraq was never that popular with Democrats-though President Obama was one of the very small number of elected officials to publicly speak out against it (one of the reasons I ultimately supported him over Hillary).
