The Iraq News

Boxer on Troop Love, Cheney at AIPAC, Walter Reed Fallout, Pentagon Admits "Elements" of Civil War, More

Senator Barbara Boxer called on the Republicans to "love the troops" in her speech introducing the failed measure to remove troops from Iraq. Among other things, Boxer said:
[W]hen you love the troops, you don't send them back into combat with post-traumatic stress and a bottle of antidepressants. You don't do it. Tragically, we know this is happening.
Of course, Dick Cheney's despicable display at the AIPAC conference earlier this week shows that the GOP has no plans to stop trying to con the public into believing that the opposition party is the one who is against the troops, while the stark truth pours out of the rat's nest that is our veteran's health care system. It goes way beyond Walter Reed.
