Whoa. Okay, it bears asking... what, exactly, would it do to a military member if he read that someone thinks our President - someone whom most of them have never met - is an idiot? OH NOES! Differing opinions!EChryst said:

It seems to me that our brave men and women are fighting to protect our freedoms, not the least of which is freedom of speech. In fact, it seems to me that in terms of 'freedoms', that one's pretty high on the list. First Amendment and all. But maybe that one doesn't matter?
I'd like to second that, thank you, I served during the 80s in Germany, I wasn't there,Jeanie said:And thank you for your service.
Dean is saying the kind of things I don't think help, our military has held back in my opinion, and that don't mean they can't win,(CNN) -- President Bush on Tuesday added his voice to Republican criticism of Howard Dean's statement that the United States cannot win the war in Iraq.
"I know we're going to win," Bush told reporters at the White House. "Our troops need to hear not only are they supported, but that we have got a strategy that will win."
Dean, the Democratic National Chairman, on Monday told a San Antonio, Texas, radio station that the United States appears to be making the same mistakes it made during the Vietnam War,
and the idea that the war in Iraq can be won is "just plain wrong."
Cat Daddy, I hope with all of my heart that you're right, but this is an echo of Nixon's "secret plan" to end the Vietnam war. We left, with nothing accomplished, except that thousands died, many service men were addicted to drugs, and many had been harmed by Agent Orange.Cat Daddy said:we have brave troops who have held down damage to civilians that the enemy hides amoung......
Now the Iraqies are starting to take over, and because they would know the enemy from civilian better, hopefully that will help keep our troops safer as they serve.......
