VP Joe Biden PASSIONATE on US withdrawal from Iraq:  "I get criticized for saying this but i'm gonna say it again. We have a lot of obligations. We have only one truly sacred obligation. It exceeds all others. That is to prepare those and equip those we send to war and care for them when they come home. This is the most talented generation of warriors in the history of the United States of America.
Every American business out there, if you want somebody who knows how to handle pressure, who knows how to handle billions of dollars worth of equipment, who how to operate under fire, hire a veteran.
Hire a spouse of a veteran. That is something everyone can do. It is within our power. 
We have an obligation. They fought over here, they've gone through these god-awful sands and deserts in the middle of a war, they're in God-forsaken places out in Afghanistan, they shouldn't have to come home and fight for a job."
