So why is the US complaining about their troops on the air?

On invasion of your homeland is different than pushing you out of someone
else's home.  I don't think the US figured that one out.

They are tough.  But if the Iraqi's are saving their bug spray for summer,
then the US troops won't be moving too fast for sure.

I totally agree.  The US has lost everything in terms of world opinion.
We are morons led by an insane lunatic and the US needs to be dealt with
accordingly.  Once we start invading Syria, the world will retaliate in a
big way.  We're already building excuses to do so, so I won't be supprised
if the US "accidentally" bombs a few targets inside Syria.

Which is how the rest of the world will treat US POW's from now on too.
I bet the weekend warriors weren't betting on that!

You gotta use pawns when you have them.  The US is streatched really thin
now.  A major attack on it's "interests" in South America would prove
difficult to defend.  Same with Korea and Taiwan.  The nut cases in
Washington are very capable of doing something really stupid and I don't
think they appreciate how much military power can be brought to bear
against them.  If it stays in Iraq, the US has a chance.  If they decide
to make it bigger, the US will be toast.
