An Anecdote

A comment at Eschaton indicates that, in at least one town, "Pray for our troops" magnets are replacing "Support Our Troops" magnets.

Which, strictly speaking, means nothing at all. But it anedcodatally supports a number of polls which indicate the ongoing war in Iraq is now supported by a lower percentage of people than those who don't support it. And it might signal a shift from a martial and militaristic spirit, to a sympathetic and empathetic one.

If this is true, revulsion at what is being done to them, and the paucity of reasons for it, may not be far behind.
