Pass or Fail

This is an interesting post from a soldier on his rubric for choosing a candidate in the next election. But, his most interesting point follows:

Any strategic plan for the Middle East [to fight terrorism] that left Saddam in power was doomed to failure.

I supported the war in Iraq, and not just from behind a computer keyboard. It never ceases to amaze me how some people can claim to “oppose the war, but support the troops.” Let me clarify something here: we’re all volunteers. Almost every one of the brave men and women that I served with were proud to be defending our country, and passionately believed that our mission was worthwhile and just.

When you express opposition to the war, you’re pissing all over what we were fighting for. So please don’t insult us by explaining how we were just hapless victims of Dubya and his cronies. Our biggest complaint was that it took twelve years for someone to give us the order to finish the job!
