Over 450 New Jersey National Guard Troops from the 1-114th Infantry Battalion will be deployed to Qatar on Wednesday, the Asbury Park Press reports.

About one-third of the troops from the battalion hail from Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties, according to the report.

President Barack Obama recently announced 275 troops would be deployed to Iraq and special forces may be sent into the country to secure the embassy after fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) seized control of the northern part of the country. There was no indication these deployments were necessarily connected to that mission.

Ah, on second look, I see I addressed both Johns with the same reply. Obviously the racial slurs were attributed to the imposter. Even though real John can complain at times, I know he would never use language like that. No worries.

Maybe if every one just posted with their full name, and only under that name, instead of making up aliases like cowards, things wouldn't get confused so easily. But, unfortunately, people enjoy making trouble.

So here is how my responses should have been: - 'Real John' I would disagree with you that Obama does not care, I feel the decision to send troops into combat weighs on him heavily - 'Fake' John You are a moron and a racist, no other response needed - Frank S., sorry if I picked on you for being confused, obviously I wasn't very clear in my responses - Leash It Now - How's that? That was ridiculous, but should make everything clear to all ;-)
