“Our troops have fought with unmatched valor, and thanks to their bravery, we are now able to pursue a political solution to this long and bloody conflict… We do not know whether we will achieve an agreement, but we do know that after two decades of war, the hour has come to at least try for peace.”
“We have a President willing to spend whatever political capital is necessary to end wars in Syria and Yemen and eventually Afghanistan and Iraq. We encourage Senator Risch to lead from his position as Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and vote to bring our troops home from the endless wars.”
This is not a Republican or Democratic issue. This is an American issue. These are our fathers, brothers, mothers, sisters, sons and daughters. It affects us all, and if we stand together as a community, we can bring our troops home.
Democratic legislative candidate Canyon County, 2018
If we wait for the perfect time to end the war, declare victory, and bring our troops home, we will never leave.
Chairman, Boise State College Republicans
My family wholeheartedly supports our brave soldiers...past and present...but we absolutely agree that it is time to stop open ended war abroad. Enough is enough.
As a Vietnam vet, it has been a struggle to deal with the total waste of lives and money.
We cannot and will not be the world's policeman.
SENATOR JIM RISCH

Bring our troops home. Build the wall and have them guard our own country not other countrys
I think it is important to remember that service members are committed to America's interests, and it is vital that the American people through our elected representatives, are deciding where it is appropriate to use military force.
Former Marine and Member of the Boise State Political Science Association
We should not stay in wars that will never end.
REP. TAMMY NICHOLS
What was hard to understand was why KBR, Haliburton and other contractors were in country and living like kings and making big bucks while we were getting killed and wounded for no damn reason at all.
The time is right. America and Idahoans are weary and tired of endless wars.
