Has everyone seen this? The Foreign Service has a shortage of diplomats willing to serve in Iraq (can't imagine why!) and is going to force people to go. This has upset quite a few people, most notably a guy named Jack Croddy. At a meeting about this, he said "It is one thing if someone believes in what is going on over there and volunteers, but it is another thing to send someone over there on a forced assignment. And I'm sorry, but basically that is a potential death sentence and you know it. Who will raise our children if we are dead or wounded?"

And I'm sure the 19 year old private in the Army National Guard "volunteered" to go to Iraq. Let's talk about who is going to support HIS family if he is killed or wounded! Croddy's attitude just steams me up, as if you couldn't tell. I'd love to know if he has a "support the troops" bumper sticker on his car - support the troops, just don't make me go help them!
