The Junior Senator from Virginia Does Not Speak For Me

In his response to the President's State of the Union address, Senator Webb of Virginia put words in my mouth.
The majority of the nation no longer supports the way this war is being fought; nor does the majority of our military.

That is emphatically not my feeling or the feeling of the majority of US servicepersons I have spoken to around the world this last year. I know of no US military person who has gotten to know real Iraqis who is willing to throw them all to the wolves.

In the future, I would appreciate the junior Senator from Virginia not stealing my voice to make his political points. When the junior Senator from Virginia comes up with and presents a better and more cohesive military strategy that has the support of his party it will be a matter of some interest to those of us who serve. To date, we are still waiting for any plan other than surrender to be advanced.
