5. A point that is bugging me
that might fit into your letter, but it might not . . .

We are at war. We should be encouraging young people to join the service. Or at least presenting it as a patriotic thing to do or something. We have people who have been in Iraq much longer than they should have been there, and the better we encourage enlistment, the more we help them come home in a reasonable amount of time.

But NO . . . what are Bush & Co. doing? Their lies are discouraging people from joining the service. How is spreading lies about the military that discourage people from joining the military supporting the troops?
