This is one of those rare occasions. People against the war actually showing class towards the troops.
As I've said, that whether or not this war is just and right will be debated for history. It will be recorded, and people can talk about it forever, until they're too old to do anything else. But for now, while our troops are over there, why can't people just hope for them to return safe and soon? I was in the Navy. People I trained with are over there. Family members are over there. And I want them to be OK over there. They all made the decision to give their lives to our country and to follow the orders of their commander in chief. They don't make their own orders. So don't hold the war against them.
"The time for debate is really beforehand. Obviously history will speak on whether this was the right thing or the wrong thing, but right now (the soldiers) are out there. Support 'em. There's plenty of time for commentary later." -David Robinson
To me, this just epitomizes the culture of arrogance and greed on Capital Hill, regardless of political affiliation. The problem is that Stevens, like most of our congresspeople, lacks the basic grace or ability to think about anyone other than himself....
