From Bruce Plante.
I don't really know how troops in Iraq must feel. Surely there are still many who believe they're on some patriotic mission, proudly serving their country by destroying another. And the sadists, of whom there are more than a few, are probably enjoying themselves. But I've got to believe that a substantial majority of the troops are just hoping desperately for that day when they can finally come home, and that every macho speech about "victory" from Bush, Cheney, as well as the wimpy do-nothingness of their Democratic co-conspirators, has to lead to the type of despair depicted in the cartoon.
