I think that what you're saying is that videos and websites like this tend to paint all of the servicemen and women with the same brush, and your concern is that it will cause the same sort of hatred towards our troops as we saw during Vietnam . . . am I right? In that sense, I certainly understand where you are coming from. On the other hand, if it causes more Americans to become anti Iraq War, then I'm all for it.

Yeah, I guess the reality is that there are too many apathetic Americans who WILL broad brush the whole military because of websites like this. I think that is very sad. There needs to be a balance. I don't blame everyone for the acts of a few, whether it be 10 or 1000. We see the same thing in the Church because of splinter groups who do all kinds of weird stuff. It's unfortunate.

Just today, I was talking to one of my clients who is a Vietnam vet. He was bragging about all the "commies" that he killed. That's sad.
