61. Same here.
I'm so ashamed :cry: I'm a Gulf War era veteran and I thought it would be okay because we didn't "finish the job" we started. I decided to believe the assurances that it would be over quickly and we would be greeted as liberators, etc.

In retrospect, I am bewildered at how I could possibly have justified that position in my mind. I put my trust in the very same media that aided and abetted the theft of the 2000 election. They also provided cover for the administration's bungling of pre-9/11 intelligence. I knew that. And yet, when it came to this my critical thinking went out the window. Not for long, I'm happy to say. I was solidly in the anti-war camp not long after the "Mission Accomplished" dog and pony show. But still. I guess it's no coincidence that I happened to be subscribing to both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal at the time of the run-up to the war.

I'm so sorry everybody.
