  •  My opinion was influenced by.. (6+ / 0-)

    what I heard from an old family friend, a .50 cal humvee gunner, who is probably still in Iraq.

    While he was waiting for clearance to go, he hinted at how traumatized, how 'messed up' other guys were as they came back.

    Then, having a media blackout on the coffins returning from Iraq... Who's hiding what?

    Then documentaries on how the injured, the amputees and brain injured are coping...  

    Baghdad ER... we watch as our neighbors die on the operating table...  Whose family will be devastated when they learn that that serviceman just died?

    Then, how bad does it have to be to have an active serviceman confront the Secretary of Defense on live television about the state of the armor?  

    I'm angry at how anyone who was there could try spinning it in a positive light... They should have taken a tour in a "typically armored" humvee...
    wow, i'm pissed off... even more than I was a few minutes ago.

    Rep, Miller, thanks for sticking to reality...

    It actually IS time for a change!
