Troops getting all their info from the liberal media

According to those pinkos at the Washington Times, passing on rumors from the anti-American fifth-columnists at the Military Times,

“Barely one-third of service members approve of the way the president is handling the war.”

“In a previous Military Times poll two years ago, 83 percent … expected victory in Iraq. ‘This year, that number has shrunk to 50 percent.'”

Obviously, the liberal media is not telling these troops the whole truth about all the great progress they are making there, or else they would be patriotic and support their commander in chief!

You have to respect the soldiers’ optimism though – half expect “victory.”

That means giving the place to Iran, right? Heck. They’ve already won.
