Yes. Thank you, suckers.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Now your talking about a war where their were no suckers. The reasons for the war and the path to war were clear for all to see, honest and above board. Now tell me that about Nam and Iraq.

My point is this: people should honor our veterans by not supporting stupid wars that don't make any sense.

I'm guessing you're familiar with the old bird. A guy I worked with on the ship was moving it and crashed it into the main hangar divider doors. Of course, they repainted the jet and he was then known as "crash".

The other squadrons were griping about not selling much gear at air shows so CAG made us repaint it. I do miss the giant chicken.

No, the fun is in needling you with a hot verbal poker and watching you turn all red and stuff.

I get no joy out of our veterans being taken for suckers by the politicians you support.

Your disrespect for the veterans is obvious, you only try to deflect the criticism with trite words and stupidity.
