What makes you suspect I would waste my time posting a bunch of bullshit? Now JayRush, I have often accused you of being a tool of the Republican Party (can't think of anything worse at the moment) but I don't recall accusing you of lying.
And, as usual you are wrong. I do believe the men and women in the Armed Forces are a National Asset. I spent twenty years making weapons systems to provide them the greatest possible tactical advantages anyone could dream up. I am still engaged in the same type of work. Unfortunately the military and its supporting industrial base is contaminated with blowhards like, well, you. People who mouth bullshit words about support for these volunteers, yet put their own careers and company profits ahead of enabling each of the men and women we put in danger to have the greatest advantage in combat.
And, yes guage, I have sent my share of goodwill gifts through our local schools and church to the troops over the last three years. And I sent one of those cards wishing them a quick and safe return.
You all constantly mistake the motive. I want the resource to be here to protect America, not oil profits, or to get revenge for Daddy, or to embark on some secret campaign to annex a portion of the Middle East that has been foisted on the American people without the Constitutionally required debate in Congress. American greatness did not come from stupidity and mediocrity. This administration is drowning in both. And saying that has nothing to do with disparaging any American troops, no matter where they are.
