The Republicans have successfully filibustered Senator Webb's (D-VA) bill requiring troops get the needed resources to fight effectively. In their continued attempt to obstruct any bill that the President doesn't like, they have decided our soldiers should stop bitching about the fact that their tours are getting extended. How can these people sleep at night? They have a coronary anytime Democrats complain about the mission in Iraq, because it "undermines morale". Yet, when Democrats propose a bill that military officers heartily endorse, they stab them in the back.
Although, in their defense, I am sure a lot of them have yellow ribbons on their SUVs so their support of the troops is unimpeachable.
