US Troops To Government: No More War

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 200 active duty U.S. armed service members, fed up with the war in Iraq, have joined an unusual protest calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country, organizers said on Wednesday.

The campaign, called the Appeal for Redress from the War in Iraq, is the first of its kind in the Iraq war and takes advantage of Defense Department rules allowing active duty troops to express personal opinions to members of Congress without fear of retaliation, organizers said.


Well, this revelation brings a whole new meaning to the much over-used slogan by SUV drivers everywhere in America, "Support the troops!" The cognitive dissonance that must be going on in the war-hawk mainstream American public has likely reached a whole new level. Honestly, there's not too much to say here other than, "Told you so."
