HOT TURKEY INTO HOT ZONES

For the fourth consecutive Thanksgiving, hot turkey meals were delivered to american troops in unstable, still hostile combat zones. It's hard to watch our young people in harm's way just because nobody bothered to develop alternative exit strategies.

Not arguing for phoney "phased redeployment" and not relitigating the decision to go to war in Iraq. Just saying it's never to late to consider "Go Smart!" as an option.

Yes, it is always old men who send young men (and now women) off to war. That is somber but not sickening. When old men send young people off to war first without defining "victory" and giving our young people the tools to achieve it, that is sickening.
