The notion of American soldiers in Iraq getting "in trouble" for even making a joke about Bush reminds me of like getting "in trouble" in Afghanistan for not being a Muslim, (i.e. the Christian convert from Islam who recently just missed being executed for holding a belief "out of sync" with "the Powers that Be". Since when is "Hail to the Chief" "Allah is Great"? Isn't it "know the enemy" not "become the enemy". "True Believers" do not a Democracy make.
