Daily Kos Today

Has some quick hits.

A soldier speaks out. Iraq isn't becoming another Vietnam as much as it is becoming our Russian-style Afghanistan.
Because the current administration is more concerned with its image than it is with reality, it prefers symbolism to substance: soldiers are dying here and being maimed and crippled for life. It is tragic, indeed criminal that our elected public servants would so willingly sacrifice our nation's prestige and honor as well as the blood and treasure to pursue an agenda that is ahistoric and un-Constitutional.

It is all the more ironic that this un-Constitutional mission is being performed by citizen soldiers such as myself who swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, the same oath that the commander in chief himself has sworn.

Turning up the heat. Military families speak out.

The DeLay sleaze factor. Are there any Republicans out there who are the least bit embarrassed about this?
