Doonesbury has VFR view of Iraq
serviceman in Iraq sent me this dialog from a Doonesbury
strip appearing in the April 15th issue of Stars and Stripes, Mideast Edition
Recruiter: The thing is, sir, we’re in a far less aggressive posture in Iraq now. Our main mission is force protection.

Doonesbury: What’s force protection?
Recruiter: Basically, it’s preventing the bad guys from killing our troops.
Doonesbury: Let me get this straight. We’ve got 150,000 troops in Iraq whose main mission is to not get killed?
Doonesbury: Can’t they not get killed at home?
Recruiter: No. We need them to not get killed there so we don’t get killed here.
