Veteran and Disabled Vet's Son: Hear Me and Millions Like Me
My father was a combat wounded veteran of WW2 who was hit while in a B-17 over Germany. He was 90% disabled thereafter. I served in the Vietnam Era, though not the Vietnam war.
Herr Warmeister Rove, hear me and millions like me! I am sick and tired of chicken hawks like you and the Liar in Chief that sits in the White House ordering other people to fight and die in a war you chose. I am tired of people and the right wing hordes who cover their misdeeds by fanning the flames of war in Iraq as you fan the flames of cultural war here at home.
I am tired of you, this evil administration and its ignorant supporters who claim to care about the military. Bullshit!! Support the military?!! You haven't the balls to attend a military funeral. Your supporters don't even want the names of the dead mentioned!
You think war is just about dressing your boy up in a fly-boy uniform and landing on an aircraft carrier patrolling the dangerous waters off the coast of San Diego for a cheap photo op. Wrong! You think war means sneaking into Iraq with a team of Fox news "reporters" to carve a fake turkey at a Baghdad photo op? Playing to the stay-at-home "Support-Our-Troops" "Boycott the French" crowd? Wrong again!
Forget your flags and your shallow bumperstickers! The most important thing you could do to support the military was never send them into an area unless absolutely necessary and you failed at that and you know it. Now you have resorted to the usual fascist strategy....demonize your opponents and question their patriotism. And don't let the truth get in the way. You have plenty of help in that effort but sooner or later truth will win out,hopefully.
You ought to resign and I hope its the first of many including the one who is responsible for this senseless, useless and unwinnable disaster!!
