Call me a libtard or a pinko or whatever you would like to, but it seems like the American people are finally beginning to wise up after having the realities and costs of war battering them over and over. Here we have another 5 soldiers who have died for this war. President Bush is seeing the lowest approval rating of his entire tenure. The latest Gallup polls show that 67% of the American people disapprove with how the Commander-in-Chimp is running this war as well as saying another 63% support a partial or complete withdrawl of our forces from Iraq.
These are indeed dark days we live in.
