Returning From Iraq War Not So Simple for Soldiers.

I don't know whether to be angry or just sad. The last line quotes Staff Sgt. Ray B. Robinson laying in his hospital bed:
"We can't lose," he said. "We can't lose this. It'll all have been a waste. We've got five trees out there. If we pull out now, I got blown up for nothing."

The article describes the tired ignorance of the soldiers coming face to face with the complacent ignorance of their families. It's both infuriating and tragic. I pity them all; and pity is not what I would call a noble sentiment.
