Another Soldier Tells his Story - He's not for Bush either

Check out this blog posting from a guy who got the scoop directly from one of our boots on the ground.

Snip:

According to him, 75% of all soldiers want Bush defeated in the election and don't care who defeats him; anger and resentment are high. He says that 90% of the officers remain far out of harm's way. From lietenants all the way up, there is general understanding that the officers are hiding in holes, or holding back in well-defended buildings and quite cavalier about sending troops out for assignments and errands that are frequently stupid, poorly planned, and dangerous.

If you believe that horse crap, you obviously are either completly retarted or living in a dream world decorated with Kerry, Springsteen, Barbara Strisand. To say 90% of officers remain in the rear is a huge stretch, you seem not to know how military units function, so I suggest you get your facts straight.

John G,

Obviously, I was pointing you to another person's article that I found interesting. I am not a military strategist, so no, I don't know the patterns of behavior of the military officers. Are you? What can you say about the substance of the account? Anything at all? Or, are you falling into the trap that your fearless leader has lead you toward, name calling as a means of argument?

In my book, your argument holds no watter and is another piece of evidence the depths to which fearmongers will sink in order to place the angst in someones belly in some convoluted effort to lift their ownselves out of their powerless state.

Also, slamming Bruce Springsteen only shows that you really have no argument to support your position.
