people are murdering kids, its called abortion and your side doesn't see to have a whole lot of bad things to say about that.....
I don't think I need to ask but I am willing to bet you nor anyone of your close friends or family have been in the military, with the exception of 1 maybe 2 draftees in Vietnam. And furthermore you do not currently or have ever known anyone deployed to a foreign country to fight for something. Yet you stand here and preach for those families of the lost men and women when you have no idea what it is like to be one of them. If I am wrong I apologize, even though you have done nothing to earn it. Drew that is a question for you as well. Do you live under our blanket of freedom and complain about the fabric softener? or have you actually done the laundry.
This is likely a sincere, heartfelt response. One that just confuses the hell out of me, but likely one that is essentially honest.
First, most of of us who oppose this war and the present administration understand the role of the military and are usually explicitly clear about the fact that the criticism against the administration and the war are not aimed at the service men and women sent over there to do what they are there to do. Instead, it is a serious criticism of the President's policies, which includes misuse of the military and wasting the commitment of the brave men and women who have volunteered to defend America. A President and Vice President, by the way, who should sound somewhat suspicious to you when they tell you how much they support your kind, given their complete lack of experience in the line of duty overseas....
It is always difficult for me to understand how military personnel can find the President who wants to send them to an optional conflict with a people who have never threatened America, without a clear mission, without specific training, without specifically needed equipment, on timetable he fabricated for his personal political convenience more believably "in their corner" than those of us who want nothing more than to bring our soldiers home to train and equip them to defend America against real threats. In fact, it makes military people who support the President we have today seem like the anti-proverbial dog, you know, the one that bites the hand that feeds it.
In this case the military people who have been and will continue to come home damaged by their experiences in Iraq need to be welcomed home and cared for in the manner they have earned but have yet to experience. That care and concern for their welfare is not coming from the President and Vice President. In fact, their plight has been buried by this group because it is a source of bad press for their personal political interests. Another example of how it is so hard to understand the perspective that the President who has specifically decided to put them in harm's way for reasons that were never intended to benefit American security and were instead based on this President's personal political interests (being reelected), and then specifically decided to shun them when they returned home wounded and maimed, again for his own personal political interests, is somehow deserving of the support he somehow manages to muster from the military.
The whole perspective is very difficult to understand. The President is an asshole. The Vice President is a cunt. The sooner we all recognize this and respond with disdain, the sooner we can come together to attend to the nation's interests again.
