I've said all along the Republicans would pull troops out, or have a plan to, prior to the November elections. The thing that makes me mad about this is, Bush has politicized our military. That hit home for me, hard, the other day when I heard a General criticize the family of deceased Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, who was left alone with two other soldiers, was kidnapped and tortured. His family heard the news of his body being found, and of the tortured state it was found in, on CNN. A Private first class soldier was sent to the house to inform the Mother, after she had heard the news. The General thought the family had no right to voice their opinions about the incident, or the war. Such a sad state this country is in. And what scares me even more, bad are they going to fuck up the withdrawl of troops? I see another big time fuck up coming. And it's going to be at the expense of our brave troops and their families.
