Excuse me, Richard, but how would YOU
appeal to the troops? What would you be
saying to the troops right now as they're
being killed thanks to Bush and Blair?

Remember, this is NOT a conscript army
in that the soldiers individually signed up.
Most didn't REALLY think they'd be killing
or less being killed themselves and there
is no reason to write the troops off now.

They are mostly poor Black, Latino and
working class people mostly looking for
jobs and education, but are getting a
hell of an education at a paltry salary.
