Veteran, Congressman: Iraq a "noble war"

CNN's State of the Union

Tom Cotton

(R) Arkansas

The Iraq war was a just a noble war. I joined the army after 9/11, after the Iraq war was started, I joined in part because I wanted to fight on the front lines. I served there in 2006. Before the surge started frankly after I left Iraq toward the end of 2006 I was worried we were losing the war but after the surge I felt that we succeeded and we have a generation of veterans now who are going to be leaders all around the country, the same way the World War II generation was, the same way the Vietnam generation was, John Mccain and the U.S. Senate, Fred smith, the founder of fedex, my father who is a leader in our small town. I think you'll see a generation of leaders coming across the country. I'm a veteran, Tulsi is a veteran. I met last week with a friend and we have accomplishments in Iraqis we should celebrate and accomplishments over the next several decades we'll make it a better place.
