Sorta Live Blogging II: Defeat in Iraq?

A good retort from Obama about also receiving a bracelet from a mother of a killed veteran who asked him to prevent another mother from going through the pain she’s going through.

It always struck me a bit perverse to say that another solider’s life should be put in danger simply because another solider died.

Obama is right. No solider ever dies in vain when serving the United States. Troops should only be deployed to defend and protect America, not because of an emotion based decision.

Obama, and Democrats in general, need to start talking about Iraq/Iran/Foreign policy with a vision of the future instead of just what the Republicans did wrong. Narrative is an important tool in communicating your message.
