Active troops ask congress to end Iraqi occupation

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sixty five active duty service members are officially asking Congress to end the war in Iraq -- the first time active troops have done so since U.S. invasion began in 2003.

Three of the service members will hold a press conference Wednesday explaining their decision to send "Appeals for Redress" under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act to their members of Congress. Under the act, National Guard and Reservists can send communications about any subject to their member of Congress without punishment.

1. What's Going On With CNN??? I'm Wondering If They Aren't Just
getting a little pissed because The Idiot & his cohorts have sort of stepped over the line and are actually stepping on their toes!

Seems like they have been pushing back a little lately. Ever since Michael Ware came on scene I've seen a shift of sorts. And NO, I AM NOT letting my guard down, just noticing that there is some "reality" actually going on!

Would be nice if they've FINALLY found their voice, or finally realized that THEY are THE FOURTH ESTATE!! Ya Know, like supposed to be the "watch-dogs" or something like that!!!

2. They know that if Shrub orders nuclear attacks on Iran, Russia
...and perhaps even China will send nuclear missiles into the Green-Zone in Iraq
