Sweetie, re: your comment, "I find it amusing that no poster has yet to stand up and say, Hey my FH is over there...".  First off, I JUST wrote that my own brother was over in Iraq and secondly, what does it matter?  You can still have an opinion on the war without having a close relative there.  (And why is it "amusing"?")

And I do not believe the troops are fighting for our freedoms.  How on earth would they be doing that?  Bush sent us into a war that, as I mentioned before, HE started (because the terrorist events of 9/11 have NOTHING TO DO with the war in Iraq) and the troops are following their orders.  They are fighting for the idiocies of the Bush presidency- I feel sorry for them.  Honestly, if I were a soldier who signed up pre-Iraq I would rather go to jail than fight in a country that we invaded for NO reason.  I don't blame those who went over there, of course, because, as I said, they are following orders and doing their jobs.  I DO support the troops (because my brother was one) but don't support this stupid mess of a war.
