An open letter to John Sidney McCain. FYI, John, the Iraqi people lost Iraq, not President Obama. Hell, John, George W. Bush set the timetable to walk away; you are such a tool. John, we were in Iraq for 12-plus years, if after that time a nation can’t stand on its own feet and defend itself, after wasting billions of Americans’ tax dollars propping them up, all for nothing, then we shouldn’t go back.

We gave them the tools, the democracy, the U.S.-written Iraqi Constitution, the free elections, and yet they still can’t solve their problems. America has its own host of problems, John. Almost $20 trillion in debt. War will only create more debt, John. Not to mention another wave of injured veterans in the GOP marches off to war again! Focus on America. Rebuild OUR nation, or is that not hip enough for the GOP? Wake up, America. The GOP is beating the war drums again. Iraq must stand on its own one day; that day has come. FYI, I am a United States Gulf War-era veteran. I served with distinction and honor. Don’t lecture me, John, YOU are the problem.
