An Eastern Kentucky Marine who got out of Iraq one year ago,deals with Post-traumatic stress disorder. I know none of us thought that when this war began that it would drag on this long and still with no clear exit in sight,and we support or troops in arms in their most dangerous endeavers. We keep them in our thoughts and prayers,that one day soon,we will welcome all of them home.

    I was so pissed when they used his face to glorify the war, and I thought Dan Rather should have been strung up. I was surprised and pleased, to see his face used in a different way, in the No Bravery video.

    Hi Sarah me to,you know I guess if you clicked the link he is dealing with the stress of war. In a lot of these interviews and things a lot of the media as you have pointed out,they tend to glorify the war. Being in the Military but never in combat,I can not say what combat would be,but would guess it to be hell. What also irritates me is the Bush administration always getting up running off at the mouth,with no clear plan to get out of Iraq or Afghanistan? Its more or less like they(the administration)is living in la,la,land. About 80 or 90 percent of those people(Iraq)hate our guts,you can not establish anything with those kinds of numbers against you. They look at us as invaders of their country not liberaters,and even more the administration would do better to honor liberty at home. Something funny today on t.v Gonzales trying to defend breaking the law,and if 1978 is out of date I would assume that 1776 is out of date,and later that will be the argument. We need a clear plan to get out of Iraq and we have none,stay the course is not a plan,WMD'S have not been found there,now with the cuts in medicare,medicaid,student loans among others,I suppose we will have to pay for this blunder,the economy is in a shambles,and yet they(the administration)see blue skies. It will take the nation a long time to recover from the damage done by these war-monging conservatives.
