Dear Mr Obama

This troop makes a compelling case for his support of McCain but...

Because he doesn't acknowledge that the reasonings for the Iraq war were wrong and without an attack on 9/11, neither he nor the American public would have cared whether or not the Iraqi's were a Democracy. If Americans really cared about the fate of the Iraqi people we would have marched to Baghdad in 1991.

This logic that if you don't support the war then you cannot support the troops is just another attempt to define patriotism by the use of lapel pins and flag waving.

Thanks for stopping by BDW - and an Eagle Mountain resident to boot. Welcome!

"neither he nor the American public would have cared whether or not the Iraqi's were a Democracy."

Not so. Official US policy was that of regime change - a policy enacted by President Clinton. Official world policy via the UN was that of forcing Saddam to make changes, and condemning his genocide.
