We are paying for mercenaries right now. Do you think the non-American troops (other than Australia and Britain) are there free. Every one of those other countries is getting paid plenty for
their warm bodies. Of course, we tax payers will be told it's foreign aid. As far as vets getting screwed, how far back do you want to go. The recent effort by the White House to cut combat pay, etc., for our
troops in Iraq went over like a pregnant pole vaulter. That moron in the White House must carry his cojones around in a wheelbarrow. I just can't understand why Americans can't see through this bunch of pompous slime-balls!
