I'm starting to understand

There is an excellent article in LRC today. This really makes sense of a lot of the conflicting messages we get about the position of our military. John McCain says they want to stay there and win, but Dr. paul gets the most campaign donations. Could it really be that this war is so psychologically damaging that these men and women, as much as they don't want to be there, aren't getting the medical and mental help that they need to function in society, and see the only choice as returning to Iraq? is this the real explanation for why these men are re-upping after they get home? I'm not easily moved to tears, but i was choking up reading this. Please read this. We owe it to our soldiers. http://www.lewrockwell.com/gaddy/gaddy32.html

One more thing

This may be a good talking point for a lot of people that like Ron Paul, but don't like his views on foreign policy, which would describe me up until about six months ago. Most men don't like to talk about or deal with psychological issues. It's just easier to just keep plowing forward, and a lot of vets that say they would go back to Iraq in a heartbeat may be just dealing with these issues the only way they know how.

I hope nobody from the military takes offense to this line of thought. I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for those who face such unimaginable horror. I'm just trying to make sense of everything. I would appreciate your comments.
