Re: "War in Iraq a mistake, say 2016 hopefuls" (TNT, 5-18).
The article reminded me that after the invasion of Iraq, anti-war protesters were labeled as anti-troops.
I was against the war but actually pro-troops. In fact, I felt the reason I was against the war was because of my support for the troops. I was sickened by the daily body count on the nightly news in a political induced war we could not win.
It did not take hindsight or political expedience to figure that out.
