I disagree. bushii has tarnished the military. The media was irresponsible for not reporting that saddam had NO womd before the invasion, or that blix had 300 inspectors who had found NOTHING, and the dems in the senate were total pussies for not saying , 'hey wait a minute.' We've ****ed over the reserve and NG guys. We've killind COUNTLESS, LITERALLY, civilians KNOWINGLY TARGETING TARGETS WE KNEW WOULD CAUSE CIVILIAN DEATHS over **** like using radar guided artillary versus some a-hole with a mortor on a camal.
It was, and is, about nation building and it's going to ****. Pat Roberts was over there last week telling Negroponte the gop senate was pulling the plug next year.
It'll be decades before the military can regain it's former professionalism, and countless kids, like my own, hold it both in destain and will never consider it as a career path. I don't blame them one bit.
