....and get out of Iraq now!

http://stevegilliard.blogspot.com/2006/02/leavin-on-jet-plane.html
A new poll to be released today shows that U.S. soldiers overwhelmingly want out of Iraq — and soon.......

Only 23 percent backed Mr. Bush's position that they should stay as long as necessary. In contrast, 72 percent said that U.S. troops should be pulled out within one year. Of those, 29 percent said they should withdraw "immediately."


They want out because they see - firsthand - that it's a disaster. They are sick and tired of getting shot at from all sides just to provide Bush political cover.

Bush can't back down now without looking like an idiot (to the 34% of Americans who still, beyond reason, approve of his policies). So we keep our soldiers in Iraq, pretending to make progress.

Let me repeat: American soldiers are dying every day because President Bush refuses to admit he was wrong. His pride is more important than the lives of young Americans.

Still others could want out for some other reason.

Hmmm, I dunno - maybe any of the following:

1) Fanatics trying to kill you
2) Non fanatics who wish you'd leave
3) Terrible Food
4) Intolerable Heat
5) Wondering what your kids look like
6) Wondering who your wife/husband is talking to
7) Wondering if you will be able to find a job when you get home
8) Wondering if you will actually ever get home
9) Following orders every day when you'd rather be out playing pinball
10) Knowing that you're there for all the wrong reasons

How could anyone want to leave that behind?

Gee, I thought this board was Political Asylum, not Personal Asassination.
