While I lean towards sending the same bill back to the President, I'm not an expert and could be wrong. I believe there can be legitimate disagreement on the best way to support the troops. That's what the argument should be about, how to support the troops best. Saying we need to get out, while true, is not enough. What steps need to be taken to get there? Everyone is mad at the Dems because they are "weak." I'm mad at the Dems because I haven't seen a good argument for how to out of there. Can someone please move the discussion forward?

Punk. Soldier. Blogger. And now author. A young veteran shares his war stories.

It was a surreal week for the 28-year-old soldier-turned-author. On Sunday he learned he was the second recipient of the $10,000 LuLu Blooker Prize for his "blook" (book based on a blog), "My War: Killing Time in Iraq," and on Monday, the Defense Department announced that it would cut off access to file-sharing sites such as YouTube and MySpace on 5 million Pentagon-issued computers -- an apparent reaction to bloggers reporting from the front lines. (Soldiers still have access to the sites on their personal computers and can log on to them at privately owned Internet cafes on their bases.)
The challenges of change are always hard. It is important that we begin to unpack those challenges that confront this nation and realize that we each have a role that requires us to change and become more responsible for shaping our own future. -Hillary Clinton
