1,000 Servicemen and Women Call for Iraq Withdrawal

Bush’s overall job approval rating is 34 percent, which is another all-time low for the president in the poll. Now, The Nation is reporting that nearly 1,000 servicemen and women have publicly surfaced to oppose a war in which they are serving.

“After appearing only seven weeks ago on the Internet, the Appeal for Redress, brainchild of 29-year-old Navy seaman Jonathan Hutto, has already been signed by nearly 1,000 US soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen, including dozens of officers–most of whom are on active duty. Not since 1969, when some 1,300 active-duty military personnel signed an open letter in the New York Times opposing the war in Vietnam, has there been such a dramatic barometer of rising military dissent.”

Seriously, what else needs to happen to convince Bush that his “war” is such a ridiculous and terrible mistake? I wonder how long it will take for the righties to start calling these troopers “cowards”, “traitors”, and “terrorist sympathesizers”?
