Votevets.org, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Against The War

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on January 29th, 2007 11:05 am by HL

Here is a new Commercial by Votevets.org, Veterans of Iraq, and Afghanistan bring the true message home. This video clip is aimed at those Senators that are still for the war. It shows that even the troops that we “support” know that this war is a worthless quagmire for everyone except the Bush/Cheney cabal. Great spot, have a look.

    Well HL if you want to post things about the Troops and the Iraq and Afghanistan war than why not post what the troops over there are saying.
    February 28, 2006
    72% of the troops say end the war by the end of 2006.
    The poll, conducted in conjunction with Le Moyne College’s Center for Peace and Global Studies, showed that 29% of the respondents, serving in various branches of the armed forces, said the U.S. should leave Iraq “immediately,” while another 22% said they should leave in the next six months. Another 21% said troops should be out between six and 12 months, while 23% said they should stay “as long as they are needed.”

    The troops have drawn different conclusions about fellow citizens back home. Asked why they think some Americans favor rapid U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq, 37% of troops serving there said those Americans are unpatriotic, while 20% believe people back home don’t believe a continued occupation will work. Another 16% said they believe those favoring a quick withdrawal do so because they oppose the use of the military in a pre-emptive war, while 15% said they do not believe those Americans understand the need for the U.S. troops in Iraq.
    Three quarters of the troops had served multiple tours and had a longer exposure to the conflict: 26% were on their first tour of duty, 45% were on their second tour, and 29% were in Iraq for a third time or more.
    A majority of the troops serving in Iraq said they were satisfied with the war provisions from Washington. Just 30% of troops said they think the Department of Defense has failed to provide adequate troop protections, such as body armor, munitions, and armor plating for vehicles like HumVees. Only 35% said basic civil infrastructure in Iraq, including roads, electricity, water service, and health care, has not improved over the past year. Three of every four were male respondents, with 63% under the age of 30.

    The survey included 944 military respondents interviewed at several undisclosed locations throughout Iraq. The names of the specific locations and specific personnel who conducted the survey are being withheld for security purposes. Surveys were conducted face-to-face using random sampling techniques. The margin of error for the survey, conducted Jan. 18 through Feb. 14, 2006, is +/- 3.3 percentage points.

    Yes, thank our troops for the sacrifices they have made. Our country was formed by people seeking freedom of religion, freedom from oppression. We can give that to Iraq and the Middle East. We made a mistake in the fashion that the USA enterred and fought the Iraq war. But I think that leaving a job unfinished would be a catastrophy one hundred times the scale we see today. Most folks I know who have been to Iraq, soldiers and private duty, here in North Carolina there are many, relate that they also think the government will crumble immediately on our exit. Just study history — the Romans, the British — how long does it take to create a government strong enough. I think in their view they were willing to do whatever it takes because they knew to back away from their beliefs was the end of their empire. Ours is not an empire of conquest but of ideas, and giving up here will mark a step into darkness for your children and your grandchildren. They will fight the war (essentially a continuation of WW2 — which the arabs fought on the side of the NAZIS) you refuse to fight. And my comments have nothing to do with Isreal — I lost my family to the Germans in France and Yugloslavia, and they were not Jewish. This IS about fighting so that people don’t have to let some SOB tell them how to pray, tell them how to raise their children, and so that we don’t have to worry about those SOB’s sitting around in coffee shops planning the next World Trade Tower disaster. We can let the world know that we will never stop going after those who would hurt us.
