In defense on an unpopular war

I just read this amazing article by Sgt. Eddie Jeffers, USA (Iraq). It is an amazingly articulate, logical and impassioned plea for those who spout anti-War rhetoric to think about the psychological effect it's having on troops abroad.

He says:

Democrats and peace activists like to toss the word "quagmire" around and compare this war to Vietnam. In a way they are right, this war is becoming like Vietnam. Not the actual war, but in the isolation of country and military. America is not a nation at war; they are a nation with its military at war. Like it or not, we are here, some of us for our second, or third times; some even for their fourth and so on. Americans are so concerned now with politics, that it is interfering with our war.

Please read the entire article.
