i for one know ron paul will empathize with the young people coming back losing an arm and a leg but not necessarily praise the most kill-list filled veterans as heroes honored strictly by quantity of body bag deliveries, when it has been established that what they're doing in iraq has nothing to do with defense of this country.
besides isn't the number like 1 terrorist for some every 50 civilians killed? actually that sounds wrong because allegedly the deaths of iraqis were in the tens of thousands or more by gunshot or starvation, but terrorists were always numbered in the hundreds.
of course, one may think differently if he were 'simply following orders'. it concerns me to think what they would do when ordered to shoot up US streets.
