Yeah; strong ditto. I volunteered and went into the Army during the Iran
hostage crisis because I felt that America needed defending; I'm not
alone  now in saying that this war is nothing more than mass murder -
of our people and of Iraqi civilans - that will cost us, big, in the

Nor are you alone in choosing the latter option. Lt. General William E.
Odom, Ret. - "What?s wrong with cutting and running?":
He's got just a few credentials in the matter:
Lieutenant General William E. Odom, U.S. Army (Ret.), is a Senior
Fellow with Hudson Institute and a professor at Yale University. He was
Director of the National Security Agency from 1985 to 1988. From 1981
to 1985, he served as Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, the
Army's senior intelligence officer. From 1977 to 1981, he was Military
Assistant to the President's Assistant for National Security Affairs,
