Bobby Schilling: You know, what I think you have to do is you've got to know the mission, and once the mission is complete. I think once you set deadlines up like the President has been doing what you do is set up more casualties with our war fighters across the world and I think that is a tragedy in itself.
We have to have an end game and once you get to that end game that's when you start to draw out. But you don't tell the enemy when you're going to draw out.
Cheri Bustos: We were in two wars and we didn't properly fund those wars. And that's the problem we are having with our budget deficits and really the state of the economy is a result of not thinking everything through. We enter these wars and then we don't have a way of funding them. I think when you're looking at wars; number one you have to make sure our country is safe and that we have a strong defense but we need to get out of that war. The president has a plan to do that and I support that plan. I would never want to take politics over what the military is instructing. If we have an exit strategy we need to make sure we are talking to the people who are in the war, our leaders, and following what their advice is on that.
