The headlines out of Washington are ridiculous lately, especially when Bush opens his mouth. Our involvement in Iraq is pissing off everyone here and around the world, and Dubya isn't making things better.
Let's get this straight... everyone supports the troops. Why would anyone not? These people risk their lives in a very scary job in a very scary place. You might disagree with the war, but that doesn't mean that you don't support the people fighting it. For that matter, it doesn't make you any less patriotic either. People are sick of seeing their kids die for a cause that has no clear point or justification. Seems to me that wanting them to come home is more support than anything.
It's the rhetoric about "winning" and "sending a message to the enemy" that I don't get. How exactly do you win a war when there is no one to surrender? We got the brutal dictator, we established a democratic government, now let's get the hell out. Bring our kids home.
