US Troops: We Want Out of Here

A new poll is out on the attitudes of US troops in Iraq toward that war. Interesting findings include:

72% want the US troops out in the next year
85% think the war is retaliation for Saddam's role in 9/11
77% think the war is to stop Saddam fron protecting al Qaeda in Iraq

This is very sad news. It suggests that our troops have completely bought into the thoroughly discredited claims that Saddam had a role in 9/11 and had relationships with al Qaeda. This proves, by extension, that the best way to send an Army into an unjustified war is to keep them ignorant of the facts, the better for them to focus on completing the "mission."

And yet, we see that the troops, having lived this "mission" for the past few years, have decided they've had enough.
