A fair amount who are speaking up, at least.
As a veteran of a fifteen-month combat tour in Iraq at the height of the surge, it is incredibly offensive to see John McCain make off color remarks
about Senator Obama's view on Iraq, claiming he "wants to lose" there. By bolstering his political rhetoric, he forgets that many veterans of the
war in Iraq would like to see a reallocation of forces to Afghanistan to combat genuine threats to our national security. Would John McCain be so
cavalier to say that I want to lose in Iraq, a place where many of my friends left their lives and limbs?
Never mind the source, these are real quotes from real veterans who see through McCain's rhetoric.
