ccording 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.
If you are surprised the troops don't know the truth of what is going on it may be because they are heavily censored.
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:

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........
