This is a response to the idiot today that submitted a "loaded question" on shoutwire.com. His question: "Do we REALLY Support Soldiers? or Just Say we Do?" His comment: "So people seem to respect soldiering to a degree, but is it socially beneath them to consider being one? Is "support the troops" just an idle mantra? Do people believe in the military and what they do or just say the words to avoid being labeled in some McCarthy-esque fashion of being un-American?" The republicans didn't support the soldiers when Clinton sent them into Serbia; they didn't support the soldiers when Clinton called for NATO bombings in Bosnia and Kosovo to stop the murderous "ethnic cleansing" wars there. {By the way, any visiting thugs might be interested in knowing that Clinton's actions were NOT, I repeat, NOT based on LIES. A "Fundamental" difference. Pardon the pun. They did not support the soldiers then and I haven't forgotten about it; nor will I allow others around me to forget - not as long the LYING LIARS continue to resort to such lowly scum-bag tactics and deceptions. Folks: By their own admission and their very own standards - they do not support the troops and are self-admitted (and perhaps self-loathing) Unpatriotic Traitors. Furthermore, where we (the progressives) had the decency not to question their patriotism - they have none. What this manipulative submitter is trying to do is to embarrass, humiliate, scare, and SHAME (and isn't that ironic) us into shutting up about the Bush War crimes based on LIES and his ongoing FAILED and BRUTAL occupation. They are exactly what they so rail against. They have no decency, no shame, and no real patriotism or love for their fellow Americans. And they exhibit this every day and in every way. And well, guess what? I will not "shut up" about it. P.S. OpEdNews Supporters: Shoutwire has 50,000 members but it would only take about 100 shouts to push my article to the top of shoutwire. Please take a minute and shout my article. It would be worth the time because it would then reach an audience of 50,000!!!! Please click here.
