‘Vets watch as insurgents undo sacrifices in Iraq’

The veterans who helped commit a crime against humanity with an aggressive US war against Iraq, who helped in the murder by sanctions, bombs, depleted uranium, bullets of more than a million people and the destruction of an ancient society, who fought for Exxon and McDonnell-Douglas and the empire, are feeling that their “sacrifices” were not, after all, worth it. Folks, as Ron Paul’s favorite antiwar song points out, the politicians and the generals and the munitions manufacturers can’t do it alone. They need the soldiers, and if young men refuse to fight wars of aggression, there wouldn’t be any more of them.
