Supporting the Troops?
According the Great and Powerful Kos, a recent Military Times poll of active-duty military personnel (as opposed to, say, cyber-chickenhawks safe here at home) shows only 38% support the President's proposed "surge" in troop levels in Iraq; only 35% approve of the President's handling of the war; and only 41% think we should've gone to war with Iraq in the first place. There are two astonishing things about this survey: one, it's skewed towards older military personnel and the officer corps, who are almost always reliably more conservative than short-timers or enlisted men and two, the Main Stream Media is not reporting this at all. Okay, I lied. there's only one astonishing thing.
