According to a recent Zogby poll of our troops in Iraq:
U.S. Troops in Iraq: 72% Say End War in 2006
Le Moyne College/Zogby Poll shows just one in five troops want to heed Bush call to stay “as long as they are needed”
  • While 58% say mission is clear, 42% say U.S. role is hazy
  • Plurality believes Iraqi insurgents are mostly homegrown
  • Almost 90% think war is retaliation for Saddam’s role in 9/11
  • Most don’t blame Iraqi public for insurgent attacks
  • Majority of troops oppose use of harsh prisoner interrogation
  • Plurality of troops pleased with their armor and equipment
OMG! 90% of them think this is about Saddam's role in 9/11!!! WTF papers are they reading? Who is telling them this crap?! It's no wonder so many of them come back home, and are confused as fuck. Thats like going into a Ford auto plant, and the workers think their making huge, wasteful vehicles that Americans won't buy. Um.. wait a minute.... bad reference. Anyhow..We owe it to our young soldiers to know what the hell they're fighting for. You know.. um democrajesufreedoliberty stuff. Yea thats worth loosing a leg or a life over.

Comments for Let the troops believe a lie
If you are surprised the troops don't know the truth of what is going on it may be because they are heavily censored.

From Wonkette:
But our embedded operative who sent us the initial heads-up sent an update.

Unfortunately anonomizers don't work out here (never have). Anyway, I had a few minutes today and thought I'd look and see what else was banned on the Marine web here. I think the results speak for themselves:

Are they that dumb?

neil, i don't think they're 'dumb', i think a lot of them are UNEDUCATED (there's a difference). i think a lot of them were recruited specifically for this war. a lot of them don't give a flying yoo hoo about the where and the why and the fors. they do what they are told........

and rich m, no blog? i've see a log of your comments about and i'm surprised you aren't blogging yourself

OR are you the rich m from unspun? if yes, i apologize

Thanks for that info RichM. I didnt know that.
