WASHINGTON, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- More than 1,000 active-duty U.S. military personnel are said to have signed a petition calling for a full U.S. withdrawal from Iraq.
Some 50 active-duty officers and other troops, including veterans of the current Iraq war, announced Tuesday that they would hand-deliver their petition, entitled an "Appeal for Redress," to Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and other members of Congress, AppealforRedress.org said in a statement Tuesday.

Will the "faux patriots" support our troops or will they show their true partisan colors?

Well, I believe the only "Faux" patriot here is one that ia arrogant enough to use a petition that represents less than 1% of the current troops deployed in Iraq to backup his political viewpoints. However, I think that these 1,000 men should be able to return home if they wished with no questions asked. They have done their service and if they feel they are done, let them come home.
