    No agenda here. Lots of lies and half truths also.

    Think about the political climate in the US in 2006. Democrats like congressman Murtha and senator Kerry were calling American Soldiers "murderers and terrorists". Left wingers and the democrat party were encouraging Cindy Sheehan's radical nut cases to demonstrate against the war. Lefties bought a full page ad in the NY Times calling the commander of US Troops "betray-us". The democrat senate majority leader was telling the Troops that the "war in Iraq is lost". If senator Harry Reid was arrested and charged with treason the moment he tried to influence the morale of the Troops and Americans with the lie that "the war in Iraq was lost" it might have lowered the suicide rate.

    One can honor the wo/man in uniform, and condem those that put him/her in it

    i think the troops accept that, maybe even better than civilians do

    as to drugs, it's getting mighty hard to a schoolkid or senior who's dodged that bullet

    as an aside, talked to an older sparky today, a dav. He's on 100% disability

    and you know why?

    because he got uppity , and told the VA to stuff thier drugs where the sun don't shine....

    The statistics are based on 2006 and I ain't gonna let it go. The poilitical climate at that time engineered by democrats was designed to ruin the morale of the US Serviceman. Many civilian Soldiers reservists were deployed and their families saw left wing propaganda designed by democrats to hurt their morale. It was the first time in history that a senate majority leader would tell the wives and families of American Soldiers that "the war in Iraq was lost". How did that impact letters and E-mails and the morale of the Troops? Harry Reid should have been arrested.
