1. Who should our soldiers fear most?
The hordes of Iraqis who hate them? Or the leaders of the major parties in the US who believe our soldiers are "stuck" in Iraq until "the job is done"?

In the debate yesterday Kucinich boldly revealed the hopelessness facing the troops: they've been lied to by Republicans, abandoned by Democrats.

It's time to bring home the troops and stop subjecting them and Iraqis to this monumental, catastrophic failure. In time, this will be widely understood; how many more must die before then? How many more sickening newscasts, such as the one I saw tonight depicting the new ranks of National Guard victims shipping off, shall dote on "how hard it is to explain to the children" - when, in fact, the hardest thing seems to be to explain this crisis to politicians?
