I am not sure that it is indoctrination necessarily. After all, the troops have access to news and the internet. My own feeling on this is that there may be a bit of self delusionary wishful thinking going on here. They were told that they would be welcomed with open arms for deposing Saddam. And what do they see? Near civil war, utter chaos, death, dismemberment, distrust of and by the Iraqis. How else do you justify your open ended presence in a foreign country, unless it is by connecting it to a grievous harm done to you?

I am in fact surprised that they did not plant some WMDs to further shore up the cause for war in their own minds.
