This is a good question, Phid. I still call it a war, but it really isn't. Maybe it would be better to decribe it as a war for freedom - to free the Iraqi people. The real war is in Afghanistan, but even the same type of nation building is going on there as well.
Stumpfoot, IMO, it is absolutely not a disservice to any veteran no matter what we want to call what's going on in Iraq.
