clear message on iraq for once

"our troops have become the primary target of the insurgency. they are united against u.s. forces and we have become a catalyst for violence. the war in iraq is not going as advertised. it is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion"- Sen. Murtha.
and so where we are, people get hurt. what i really like about what senator murtha said is the clarity in it. he has a belief that we should withdrawal in six months, and he supports his belief with sound logic- that our presence in iraq is what is leading to the high level violence and iraqi civilian casualties (catalyst for violence). and i say this knowing that something can be logical without being "true", though i think it's a sound theory.
i dont know that i agreee with the senator, but i do know that i would like to have some alternatives to it that clearly state both what is disagreed/agreed with and why keep something or what they would like to replace something with so i could make a sound decision on what to support. but nobody really says anything. they squabble and fight... like this attacking of murtha for having a different and viable opinion/alternative.
i am tired of my government treating me like an eight year old, when the world was still black and white, and your father (president) spouting that old cliche "because i said so" was enough to make you tow the line.
