Most U.S. Soldiers Oppose The War
by Progressive American
I heard part of The Sean Hannity Show a few nights ago. Sean and a caller were discussing what would happen if the media would start interviewing the troops. They actually believed that the troops would show support for the war in
The fact of the matter is that the most recent poll of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, conducted by Le Moyne College/Zogby International, concluded that 72 percent think the U.S. should exit the country within the next year. That is not support. Soldiers have even started signing petitions to be brought back home. And who can blame them? They are not stupid. They know that this war is wrong, unjustified, and not getting
Nearly every soldier that I have ever seen or heard interviewed has spoken against the war. There is one reason for this-- THE TROOPS DO NOT SUPPORT THE WAR IN IRAQ! The fact that 72% of "our boys" are against the war should be enough to tell you that. So Sean, don't try to tell me that the results would be on your side if the media would interview the troops. That is impossible and couldn't happen unless Fox News is the one doing the reporting. Which goes to say that no honest News source could truthfully report that our troops are for this war.

No heat, no running water, and no food. Something doesn't seem right. These great men and women are putting their lives on the line, the least the government could do is provide them with food. And it's going to get cold this winter-- why should they have to go without some kind of heating? I bet they would love a shower too but that doesn't look like it's gonna happen.
BRING THEM HOME NOW!!
