I'm seeing a lot of really bitter, snarky assholes in this thread and an article about one really bitter Marine.

Meanwhile, there's a WW II vet that remembers the hundreds of thousands of German civilians killed in the process of taking down Nazi Germany, shakes his head at all of you, and goes back to reading his paper.  War is not something one engages in lightly.  People die.  Fathers, mothers, sons and daughters die.

I have said a million times since the start of the Iraq War that the right call was made based upon what we knew at the time.  I still believe that.  I have also said that the occupation was botched early on and it was only later that we finally figured out what the fark we were doing and if you have to point a finger of blame at Bush & Co. point it there.  There is no need for tin foil hat grand conspiracy theories about winning daddy's war, big oil, or anything else that makes you no better than the people still looking for the hidden UN troops on US soil.
