those troops over there are our kids...are our kids bad people?...OR ARE THEY GOOD PEOPLE?

Some of each--same as Iraqis, British, French, Australians, North Koreans, Tanzanians, Eskimos, Ladakhis...

We had overwhelming military might on our side. This DOES NOT make us morally superior. It simply means we had overwhelming military might on our side. (Witness Tibetans v. Chinese).

Let people be judged on their own character, and not simply that they served in the military. Anything less is to do them a disservice.


we are what we are...the last best hope of mankind

Agreed. That's why I don't want to see us squander our power unwisely and perpetuate the cycle of violence, which IMO is what we've done in Iraq. Time will tell.
