  4,486 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq and 2,345 U.S. soldiers died in Afghanistan, 1 million U.S. soldiers wounded in both wars, and a potential cost of up to $6 trillion- Where are the poems for them? Would Fox News publish them?

noise-gate,

Since the author of that poem was a Marine Corps officer I'm pretty sure he or she was well aware of US war casualties.

The poem about Benghazi is because it didn't have to happen and those there were abandoned by someone who is now saying she's the better qualified candidate to be Commander-in-Chief.

This poem is a classic;

It Has Always Been The Soldier

It is the soldier,
not the President,
who
gives us democracy.

It is the soldier,
not the Congress,
who
takes care of us.

It is the soldier,
not the reporter,
who has given us
Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier,
not the poet,
who has given us
Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier,
not the campus organizer,
who has given us the
Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier,
who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose
coffin is draped by the flag
that allows the protester to burn the flag.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    l have no problem with people expressing their views.This Marine Corp Officer has an opinion just like anyone else.

    This is what l posted to buckeye, it saves me having to repeat myself.

    He Wrote : What happened in Benghazi was CRIMINAL. The embassy requested more security knowing the situation there. When the attack was under way they repeatedly asked for help, only to be ignored.

    My question was : Who ignored the request? Are you absolutely certain that Hillary was TOLD this and decided to ignore it when the Embassy was being attacked? If there is concrete proof that she was AWARE of this and did Nothing, then Hey: l want her to PAY  for that, but guessing that she knew is not good enough. Abandoning staff under fire is a criminal offense- until l can read an email that specifically stated that Clinton was made aware of the attack and DID NOTHING- l will remain neutral.- l am not into the Blame Game.

    From Policy. Mic.

    Where does Clinton play into this? Well, aside from being the Secretary of State — an important cabinet position — she later took responsibility for the security at the compound, or rather, a lack thereof. "I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts," Clinton said, in an interview with CNN. "The president and the vice president wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs, and make a considered decision."

    Since the terrorist strike, investigations have detailed failures on the end of the State Department and the intelligence community, which included a Senate Intelligence Committee report in January 2014 that said both were at fault for failing to prevent the attack, according to the Washington Post. However, there was only one specific reference to Clinton throughout the report.

    "The document contains only one mention of then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, whom the panel's Republicans name as the official who should ultimately be held responsible for the failures in Benghazi," Adam Goldman and Anne Gearan wrote for the Post. "

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

      "The poem about Benghazi"

      Oh really? Did you miss where it says "it is the soldier"?

      FYI, not one of the four men killed at Benghazi were soldiers so how could that poem be about Benghazi?

        Nice poem but it can't be about Benghazi because none of the men killed were in the Military though two of the CIA agents were ex-Navy Seals. If we're going to hold Clinton responsible for those four deaths, should we hold Reagan responsible for the 258 Marines killed in Lebanon, or George W Bush for all the deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan? 

        Was any Secretary of State held accountable for any attacks on embassies or consulates?

          Any one with a functioning brain would know I was referring to The Battling Boys of Benghazi poem, originally posted by gwurston.

          I didn't 'miss' where it says It Is the Soldier, I posted it you dimwit. 

           You either really do have serious mental problems or you have the reading comprehension of a rock ape or are intentionally out to be sa pain. 

          Your past time is criticizing other people yet the only way you can do it is by misquoting what they said for what you think they said because you are totally lacking in any creativity. Stop getting your mental exercise by jumping to conclusions.

            has done and is doing. She wanted absolute power. She wanted to play with fire, now she will get burned.

            This is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...we the people will keep it that way, no matter what it takes.

            Keep talking, keep acting, keep spreading the news. Trey Gowdy is an outstanding individual.

                Have somebody change your Depends because your nonsense is stinking up the thread.

                FYI the poem you posted "It Has Always Been The Soldier" was written by a Marine Corp Chaplain. As for the grwurston poem you're trying to plagiarize it. You don't even know it was written by a former Marine or an EX Navy Seal depending on which account you choose.

                With you, it's not about your lame remarks about people in harms way, but your obvious disdain for Draftees is going to get you into trouble especially if one of those Draftees is a victim of your juvenile pranking near lottery terminals. Tell us about your disdain for Keith L. Ware.

                "you are totally lacking in any creativity."

                If lack of creativity is quoting the facts, guilty as charged, But only the ignorant poorly educated Trump supporters using lies and innuendos fear the facts. If you have any real facts proving Clinton was responsible for Benghasi, now is the time to show it. The election is next Tuesday and Trump is still losing.

                Are your lame childish insults really necessary or is it because it's the only way you can communicate?

                        I think Huma is laying low due to advice from her counsel. Most likely spending much needed time with her child.

                            noise-gate,

                            It's what Hillary said afterwards about 4 dead Americans and at this point what does it matter that makes the whole thing, and her very suspicious. 

                            I don't see how anyone can think she is fit to be President or Commander-in-Chief.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Stack,

                              You need help Thanks for the proof that you jump to conclusions though.

                              You tell me "FYI the poem you posted was written by a Marine Corp Chaplain."

                              This is what it says at the end of that poem, where I posted it;

                              By Father Dennis O'Brien
                              Chaplain
                              United States Marines

                              Go read the post that poem is in. Anyone who reads that post and your FYI comment would know you are not playing with a full deck. 

                               Stop being so anxious to criticize others and read the entire post before you start 'commenting' on it. 

                              Quoting facts huh? So much for your "creativity". You have none. 

                              I think everyone here is aware you learned a new word, 'childish', Nice self reflection. Your constant attempts to try and be the source of information that others have already posted proves you are the one who is childish. Also a troll, a creep and a moron who is not worth anymore keystrokes.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Lep

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
