Does anyone except talking heads and people cashing in from this war, believe in it anymore...

quote from article:

"According to the CBS program, some 5,000 American men and women have deserted the military since the war began. ***They are largely accused of cowardice back home***, but they say they are acting out of conscience."

Largely accused by who? Hannity? Limbaugh? They already have egg on their faces. The white house made them look like the fools they are, by backing Annan last week.

What am I saying, most people in America think Saddam is from Canada, Al-qaeda is lined up along the mexican border ready to invade, and Bush is a war hero.

I guess he was right. Mission Accomplished!
