First i just want to say one thing:
I am not American, i am french like most you know, so i can understand that some of you will tell me to shut up and mind my own business.
I myself think they should come home.
i think the best support if to bring them back.
i have been part of a lot of those Support aid, where we send letters, cookies, pictures.
i hate war, i do not see anything good coming out of wars (only better weapons).
and i hate it that most of them dont know why they are their, actually none of them really know.
i have 2 friends, they were like the first guys i met in the USA when i got here.
both of them in the army, they left 1 year ago, were supposed to come back twice within one year.
they came back 8 weeks ago, just to find out that they had to go back 3 weeks after.
2 days later i got a letter from one of the mom telling me that they both died.
and i am so mad, and get mad i people on the street that say support the war, support the troops they must stay and fight.
I just wanted to know what are you feelings and views on this topic.
PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS IN A FLAMING AND PISSING CONTEST
haha ... I would think YOU of all people would see the benefit of war. If it weren't for war, you'd be speaking German right now.
I'm sorry that you lost 2 friends, but what you have to realize is that they made the choice to sign up. They knew what they were doing could get them killed or hurt and they did it anyway.

it would be great if we brought them back, but that would just make the situation worse IMO.
+1 I think the original question is a bit biased. The Question as stated is "Do you WANT them to come home?" Of course the answer to that is yes, who doesn't want our military boys back home where they belong? The question SHOULD be "Do they NEED to come home?" And the answer to that question is no, I agree with Oricle, bringing them home would cause more harm than good.
