Poll : Only 25% of GIs Serving in Iraq Support Bush Iraq Policy WITH AN UPDATE FROM STARS&STRIPES.COM

Another right-wing lie exposed: US GIs in Iraq support President Bush's Iraq war policy. In reality, US troops in Iraq say, "You want to support your troops? Bring us HOME!!!"

Interesting insights from the "left-wing media," i.e., Stars & Stripes:
The poll also shows that 42 percent of the troops surveyed are unsure of their mission in Iraq, and that 85 percent believe a major reason they were sent into war was “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the Sept. 11 attacks.” Ninety-three percent said finding and destroying weapons of mass destruction is not a reason for the ongoing military action.
Ummmm...Yeah. That's a problem, isn't it. Where in the world did 85% of US troops in Iraq get the idea that Saddam had been involved in the 9/11 attacks? Part of the reason is the general uncertainty about the purpose of the war in the first place. That's what happens when you lie to the troops and to the American people when starting a war of choice.
Of those surveyed, 75 percent have served multiple tours in Iraq, 63 percent were under 30 years old, and 75 percent were male.
May God bless and protect them. And may WE do the right thing by bringing them home.
