Colonel Crooks and Liars and The General are very happy that many are joining in on Special Ops.

Knight Ridder: Young Republicans support Iraq war, but not all are willing to join the fight.

"I physically probably couldn't do a whole lot" in Iraq, said Tiffanee Hokel, 18, of Webster City, Iowa, who called the war a moral imperative. She knows people posted in Iraq, but she didn't flinch when asked why she wouldn't go. "I think I could do more here," Hokel said, adding that she's focusing on political action that supports the war and the troops.

"We don't have to be there physically to fight it," she said.

Daily Kos has this round up: Tony Perkins says: "They’re giving their lives as you’re giving your time.”

Think Progress says: You know, you’ve got a point there, Tony. Just like our soldiers are dying in Iraq, campus conservatives are stapling flyers for an Ann Coulter speech to a kiosk. Basically the same thing.
