Raw Story has an excerpt from the military blog of Sgt. Thomas Strickland, which was written two days before he was killed in Iraq. Sgt. Strickland was very upset with the Iraq war plan. Before you click on the link, please be warned about the language:
Here is one small part of his statement:
"Back home (the USA kind) I have no home, no job, and my commander in chief is on vacation (he's about 20 days behind Ronald Reagan right now in the race to become the most vacationing president ever. Hey W! we all got our fingers crossed! Here's to you and two more years of presidency...er vacationing!)."
Our troops know that this administration has screwed up the war in Iraq. Our young people are being slaughtered because they were not provided with enough armor, equipment, or troops. Rumsfeld said you go to war with the army that you have. Iraq did not attack us. This was an unnecessary war based on a lie. How many more need to die?
