Poor Losers

There is a great article in the LA Times that discusses the underlying reasons for the hardening of US public opinion in relation to Iraq. This short excerpt gives you a taste of the author's view:

"Indeed, when partisans claim that the American people are fed up and want our troops home, they're deliberately muddying the waters. The American people have never objected to far-flung deployments of our troops. We've had soldiers stationed all over the world for decades.

"What the American people don't like is losing — lives or wars. After all, you don't hear many people complaining that we still have troops in Japan and Germany more than 20,000 days later."
