Members of Congress make about $165,000 a year. Some of them seem to believe they are paid to be cheerleaders for war profiteers and a corrupt CIVILIAN command. I've yet to hear a compelling explanation as to how criticizing war profiteers is the same as criticizing soldiers in harms way. IMHO, the war profiteers ARE NOT looking out for the soldiers. The corrupt civilian command and their war profiteering pals (with the help of their loyal echo chamber...think tanks and the corporate media) claim their escalation policy honors the troops.
Actually, the civilian command is hiding behind soldiers to escape accountability for their actions. That is disgraceful. About as sick as Republicans who sat by and refused to do proper oversight for years. Or Democrats who can't bring themselves to stop the occupation, offering a cowardly non binding resolution instead.
