When wingnuts attack fighting men

By Libby

This is the stuff that really pisses me off. The cheerleaders for war who raise holy hell over the tiniest criticism of their sainted General, who for the record, did betray not only us, but also his men with his politically driven report, think nothing of jumping all over an active duty soldier who dares dissent from their rosy party line -- even a dead one.

You of course remember the seven active duty soldiers who wrote the op-ed criticizing the war. Oddly, after publication, one got shot in the head but will recover and two died in a mysterious auto accident in Iraq. The mother of one of them is still waiting for an answer from the Army on the details of the accident, which in shades of Pat Tillman are not forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Don Pogreba points us to an op-ed written by former conservative state Senator Dave Rye in Montana suggesting that the other victim "was neither intelligent enough to have written an editorial expressing discontent about the war nor able to escape the clutches of liberal propagandists."

The pure hypocrisy of this pro-war crowd is nauseating. This guy can diss a dead soldier, John Boehner can call the war dead a small sacrifice and blame military officers for the mess Rummy made and the Ragin Righties don't say a fucking word. But they made a month long federal case out of a botched joke by John Kerry, who actually served in a war, unlike like these chickenshit bullies.

Sometimes I wish we could round the whole lot of them up and drop their sorry asses into the middle of Sadr City for a week, without a platoon of armed bodyguards, and see how big they talk then.
