Attitudes towards the Iraq War are changing...

This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit my 'conservative' relatives in southern New Jersey. What I noticed was that the strong support for the war that they had a year ago had largely disappeared. One cousin even suggested that we should consider bringing the troops home.

As I drove back to Massachusetts was thinking that attitudes throughout America are changing. We are beginning to see evidence of war fatigue. It will be interesting to see how these changing attitudes impact on the elections in November.
