Troops don’t know why they’re in Iraq

Zogby conducted a poll of U.S. troops fighting in Iraq, on a number of different subjects. What jumped out at me is this paragraph, though…

The wide-ranging poll also shows that 58% of those serving in country say the U.S. mission in Iraq is clear in their minds, while 42% said it is either somewhat or very unclear to them, that they have no understanding of it at all, or are unsure. While 85% said the U.S. mission is mainly “to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks,” 77% said they also believe the main or a major reason for the war was “to stop Saddam from protecting al Qaeda in Iraq.”

Holy shit. These kids are dying for nothing, and they don’t even know it. They actually believe the bogus crap that’s been fed to them. The horror.
