Their opinion doesn't matter. If the CINC issues lawful orders, members of the military are obliged to follow them.
True but your opinion is not the CINC. As a brother of yours who did not serve in a Combat arms MOS but served in Combat, I think your opinion is in the minority. That opinion being that Iraq was for profit.
When you look at the intelligence as a whole and do not cherry pick the huffington post crap that FTL and McBear would have you believe is truth, you see that we got rid of a tyrant who was killing millions of his own people and destabilizing the region. The same tyrant who was supporting terrorism against the US and his neighbors.
For you or anyone else to claim that Iraq was staged for profit only shows the true lack of understanding of the subject matter. I am by no means an expert but the evidence is clear and if you can put aside your vitriolic hatred and partisan propaganda, you might be able to form a more cogent opinion on the matter.
Who's John Galt.
