    so much, say after all this country has asked them to do, leaving a comrade behind after the completion of a war would be unconscionable.  

    The U.S. has put millions of young men and women in harms way for two wars that were absolutely unnecessary.  That, in itself, is unconscionable.  

    After 9/11, bombing the 'ell out of Afghanistan for bin Laden was fruitless; he would have been turned over with a hefty ransom if we had the patience to negotiate instead of the knee-jerk reaction we took.  

    Iraq was an opportunity Cheney/Bush saw to take over Iraqi oil fields; yes, our American lives were lost and maimed for oil.

    I'm not excusing Bergdahl at all, he will have to account for himself and the necessary steps will follow.  But, evidently this young man was disillusioned, seeing Afghani's young and old suffering for naught.  

    Any parent who gives their child to serve his country expects, and should  expect nothing less, than to have their son/daughter released from a prison when war has ended.
