According to Jean Stimmell, "The war in Iraq, like Vietnam, is a counterinsurgency conflict becoming more controversial and unpopular over time. And in Iraq — even more than Vietnam — most combat soldiers have shot at people and many have killed. Quoting one soldier ... 'There’s just too much killing. They shoot, we return fire, and they’re all dead.' The inescapable conclusion is that we can soon expect yet another generation of traumatized soldiers to return home, their hopes and dreams for the future demolished."
