Is in the second panel:
"Tillman, who earned $18,000, falsely believed Bush's wars against Iraq and Afghanistan had something to do with 9/11."
And while I don't understand the money reference (I'm not defending the entirety of the comic), I think that many, many troops have been led into this war thinking it was revenge for 9/11 when it really wasn't.
And again, this doesn't go for everyone. For Asian Persuasion, he said that he was in it awhile ago because he needed to get an education. That's fair enough. But many ... MANY people who got an injection of nationalism after 9/11 were and ARE being misled in what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If this makes me come out like I'm insulting or not supporting our troops, I apologize. I DO support the troops and all that (I mean, who CAN'T support the troops), but it's the leadership that I have problems with.
