Tired

“Americans have grown tired of the wars. While we support the troops, we’re tired of seeing flags flown at half-staff in honor of our fallen. We’re tired of seeing maimed young men and women rebuilding their lives. We’re tired of hearing about IEDs. We’re just tired and we’re sad that so much of our treasure has been used up in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

There won’t be a landing on an aircraft carrier tonight nor will there be a “Mission Accomplished” sign behind President Obama when he gives his speech tonight (6:00 p.m. Mountain time) from the newly-remodeled oval office.

But really, part of the mission is accomplished.

President Obama will speak about major combat operations ending in Iraq. Obama was against this war when it was not “cool” to be against this war. Even after the United States was in it neck deep, he did not support the surge that ultimately led to the United States to be able to withdraw our combat troops. It will be interesting to see if he gives any credit to former President George Bush for where we are today. Since politics play a role in everything, I doubt it.

Long wars with 24 hour media coverage can tire a whole nation. Continue reading
