Walter, can't you try enjoying retirement?
"We had an opportunity to say to the world and Iraqis after the hurricane disaster that Mother Nature has not treated us well and we find ourselves missing the amount of money it takes to help these poor people out of their homeless situation and rebuild some of our most important cities in the United States," he said. "Therefore, we are going to have to bring our troops home."
Does Cronkite think our military should come home and be forced into the construction business or does he want to disband them to save the money? Maybe he thinks abandoning Iraq by lying to the world would make us look better in Europe. Maybe he just longs for the good old days when his word was enough to turn public opinion.
Walter, you've had a long and eventful career, isn't it time to enjoy retirement?
