Military Abandoning Bush

Does this mean that the troops hate freedom? From the Military Times:

Support for President Bush and for the war in Iraq has slipped significantly in the last year among members of the military’s professional core, according to the 2005 Military Times Poll.

Approval of the president’s Iraq policy fell 9 percentage points from 2004; a bare majority, 54 percent, now say they view his performance on Iraq as favorable. Support for his overall performance fell 11 points, to 60 percent, among active-duty readers
of the Military Times newspapers. Though support both for President Bush and for the war in Iraq remains significantly higher than in the public as a whole, the drop is likely to add further fuel to the heated debate over Iraq policy. In 2003 and 2004, supporters of the war in Iraq pointed to high approval ratings in the Military Times Poll as a signal that military members were behind President Bush’s the president’s policy.

The foundation is crumbling

I've been observing and predicting this for a year now. Glad to see it quantified by a credible source.

Anyone know what comparable

Anyone know what comparable approval ratings other wars had among the military? This is probably still higher than Vietnam, but probably much lower than Afganistan, Desert Storm, et. al.
Is the Worst President Ever fighting the Worst War Ever?
