Two questions for Ned Lamont

If you listen to Ned Lamont’s acceptance speech, he says of our troops in Iraq:

We have 132,000 of our bravest troops stuck in the middle of a bloody civil war in Iraq. And I say it’s high time we bring them home to the hero’s welcome.

Help me out here, you Lamont zombies. If our troops are doing something bad by fighting in Iraq, why should we regard them as heroes? Conversely, if they are indeed heroes then why should we pull them out before they finish their heroic task?

    That is quite the conundrum, isn’t it?! Wouldn’t it be nice to ask him that “on the record”? I would love to hear the bloviating on that one!
