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
And Johnson was going to get us out of Vietnam in 1964. If Kerry would win, it's likely a different approach but the reality of the situation would prevent him form a pull out. He may botch the hell out of it but not a pull out.
