Since this war began the number of soldiers in Iraq who think Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11 has stunned us all. We continue to be surprised by the number of troops over there who still think we’re winning, convinced we’re doing good, and that if America pulls out they will follow us home.
The military sent to Iraq some of the most educated soldiers in a generation. More have high school degrees than those who served in Vietnam.
But that doesn’t mean they know anything.The point of his post was supposed to be to say those in the military should not be denied access to YouTube, MySpace and some other sites, but it turned into an excuse to insult the troops serving in Iraq. As for this quote, “We continue to be surprised by the number of troops over there who still think we’re winning, convinced we’re doing good, and that if America pulls out they will follow us home” — don’t include me in your “we”. The only reason Maher and those he includes in his “we” are surprised by the number of troops who think we’re winning and that we are doing good there is because he and his “we” believe everything they hear coming from the mouths of Democrats seeking to gain political advantage on the backs of those serving and they believe the one-sided mainstream media coverage they see.
