Military Support For Bush and War Drop (And I Dont Care Why)

(Brieitbart) Support for President George W. Bush's Iraq policy has fallen among the US armed forces to just 54 percent from 63 percent a year ago, according to a poll by the magazine group Military Times.

In its annual survey of the views of military personnel, the group reported on its website that support for Bush's overall policies dropped over the past year to 60 percent from 71 percent.

the new poll "found diminished optimism that US goals in Iraq can be accomplished, and a somewhat smaller drop in support for the decision to go to war in 2003."

This media group has a version of magazine that is sold on every US military instillation across the globe. They have four versions: the Army Times, the Navy Times, the AirForce Times, and of course, the Marine Corps Times. It is very creditable with the military, and favored as “THE” source for many a service member.

We can bicker about the reasons behind this shift in attitude, but not the fact that it is happening. What remains to be seen at this point is what effect it will have on current operations and long term strategic goals.
