The 'Real Iraq'

On the fifth anniversary of the Authorization to Use Military Force in Iraq, 12 former army captains offer a stark choice:

There is one way we might be able to succeed in Iraq. To continue an operation of this intensity and duration, we would have to abandon our volunteer military for compulsory service. Short of that, our best option is to leave Iraq immediately. A scaled withdrawal will not prevent a civil war, and it will spend more blood and treasure on a losing proposition.

America, it has been five years. It's time to make a choice.
Time for the Right-Wing Outrage Machine to dig a little deeper, I guess. I know - so many traitors, so little time. But there's a new group of phony soldiers who need swift-boating, ASAP. Can't falter now.

Either attack them as weak liberals who want to lose the war so they can go home, or congratulate them for having the courage to admit that only a draft can save America from the Islamic Aggressors.

The thing is, despite their courageous service to their country, they have expressed an opinion contrary to that of Great Leader.

Therefore, in the eyes of the RWOM, they must be destroyed.
