My Response to Senator Kerry « Politics As Usual »

John Kerry wants to hear about the hardships military members experienced in deploying in the Global War on Terror. Without snark, here's my completely honest reply:

The hardest things I had to deal with were lack of support from home: -people who criticized the war I believed in as being "The wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time". -politicians who refused to authorize funding for petty political reasons -people who insisted that "there never was any WMD in Iraq" meant the invasion was unjustified, when it actually required the invasion to determine the WMD was not present. Everyone believed Iraq had WMD right up until Baghdad fell, no? ...all of which still doesn't mean the WMD wasn't there the month before we went in (destroyed or moved to Syria once the invasion was obvious), or that there wasn't a turnkey program capable of producing tons of WMD within days or weeks (remember the mobile laboratory vans? I never bought the 'weather balloon' nonsensical explanation; only a fool would).

Minor hardships, only. And all well worth it in the pursuit of freedom for the world and security for the United States.

If you are in the military, let him know what you experienced.
