A Bit Slow....

Americans, that is, after decades of assault on our educational system. But it is finally sinking in that spending hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of lives invading a country on the other side of the world for no apparent reason might not be the best idea: [CNN] Poll: Most in U.S. say Iraq war not worthwhile
Fifty-seven percent of those polled said they did not believe it was worth going to war, versus 41 percent who said it was, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll of 1,006 adults.

That was a drop in support from February, when 48 percent said it was worth going to war and half said it was not.
I still feel ill when I think of the macho, gung-ho so-called patriotic BS that was spouted by millions back in 2002 and 2003 supporting aWol's crime. And I still feel a bit woozy to think that, after over two years of being proven completely wrong, 41% are still drinking the Kool-Aid. What is the matter with these people?
