We'll have a vote for a state.
On Dennis Kucinich is a -- resolution to pull the troops out no later than January.
I would ask your viewers to please the good news site called -- members of congress and say let's bring our kids home.
I've seen enough broken bodies at Walter Reed and Bethesda.
-- -- -- -- -- Letters to families and extended families lost loved ones in Afghanistan it and it in Iraq.
It's time to get our kids home and save that money and spend it here.
-- North Carolina conservative Republican congressman Walter Jones.
As expressing a view that I not only share but most of the American people do as well.
A new -- by the Washington Post shows that two thirds of Americans think the Afghan war is no longer worth fighting.
Does this mean it's time to bring our troops home does this mean they'll finally -- Joining me out to discuss this is anti war dot com editorial director Justin -- Mundo Justin welcome back to freedom watch.
Are you as you.
Are you surprised.
When conservative Republicans.
Who represent a lot of military folks in their districts.
From North Carolina make arguments like we just heard from Walter Jones which was on.
Our show yesterday war.
When two thirds of those polled by the Washington Post say it's time to bring the troops on this any of this surprise you at long last.
No because Walter Jones had a real turnaround remember he was the freedom Fries guy.
And he was -- -- gung ho very pro war.
And then he actually met the families.
Of the victims of this war.
You know what the American victims and he -- turned around.
And so he had quite a coming home.
Two two -- Jesus moment there but it's.
Isn't it they -- zero and again story Justin isn't a more significant than the American public has turned around.
But Walter jones' with a sixteen for a 66%.
Of the American public that wants the troops home.
No no you know I'm not surprised because.
The American people.
Get very war alike and then they get very calm and so.
It's it's it's not a surprise -- but guess what.
The troops are not coming home it doesn't matter if if if if 90% of the American people said.
We want them to come home -- still wouldn't come home why is that -- and and well because we have two wings of the war party.
And the Republicans.
And that's what's going on with back it's all rigged.
-- with -- you know -- -- a great democracy.
Ball we are not.
The American people never voted for this war and if if there -- given the opportunity.
They would vote well -- course that -- are not gonna get the opportunity.
-- congress never even voted for this warming this war is being fought on the basis of a resolution not a declaration of war but George Bush extracted from the congress ten years ago there was no declaration of war so your argument is very sound.
On the law.
Justin as well as on politics switching gears will this attitude about war.
But the government always has to demonize somebody that the government always have to be spending money on the Defense Department.
Induce us to enter the war in Libya.
And if that president seriously considers that can you give me some reasons why he shouldn't.
Well I don't think he's going to do it you know Obama is not dumped.
And he doesn't need another war in the Middle East and the American people of course are totally against it so he's not going to do it.
You know there are many reasons why we are going to do it but guess -- This war is not about us it's not about America it's about leave the and Libya is going to remain split.
That's what's gonna happen is going to be -- Libya I was gonna be west Libya and then.
Never the Twain shall meet we know there's you know our house this session if we entered this word just -- we wouldn't even know who it is where fighting against and who it is we're supporting.
Thanks very much for coming back on the show we pre.
