Return to Iraq?

Militant Islamists are retaking cities in Iraq seemingly overnight, it doesn't look like there are any signs of this slowing down any time soon and that's freaking a lot of people out. There are also a lot of military organizations demonstrating their frustration about the 4,000 + Soldiers, Marines, Sailors & Airmen who died while on their soil being lost in vain, and I don't blame them. Then, and maybe this is selfish of me, I can't help but reflect on my own experiences while I was deployed there toward the end of the conflict, I'm left to wonder what it was all for in the end? Was my suffering an near death really worth a chuck of dried up dirt and a few barrels of oil? 

And now some public officials are insisting that we go back there to stop their civil war.

I have only THIS to say in response, and I honestly don't care who I piss off in the process: 

Don't go all "FAUX NEWS - Bowe Bergdhal" on ME, my C.O.C were the ones who deliberately fucked up and left me to suffer: If your first thought is to call me a traitor, you can think that if you want to (it's not like I can stop you) but THEN you have to ALSO ask why rapists and their protecters are allowed to continue to wear a uniform with our flag on their right shoulders.
