"Just send my husband home -- send all the soldiers home."
While our president can't seem to decide which lie he's telling this week about why we went to war in Iraq and doesn't think any of us are keeping track of his lies, the similarities to Vietnam become ever more acute.
Now the troops themselves are starting to speak out
, and what they're saying is that they were lied to as well, that they were supposed to be home by now and that they do not want to still be in Iraq.
"We were told the fastest way back home is through Baghdad and that's what we did. Now we are still here,"
says one from the 3rd Infantry.
"When I told [my wife] she started crying and I almost started crying. I just felt like my heart was broken. I could not figure out...how they could keep us here after they told us we were coming home,"
"If Donald Rumsfeld were here, I'd ask him for his resignation,"
"We slept next to each other just last night. He was my best friend," said
one soldier who barely survived the attack(one of an average of 12 a day and rising ever since Bush dared them) that killed the mayor of Hadithah yesterday. He wept over his fellow soldier. I wonder if Bush has even lost a single hour of sleep over even one death.
Or is he in the White House calling these brave men "pussies" or something right now? The latter sounds more likely. But then, he has never been a soldier, never seen combat. How could he even understand?
Our president doesn't care if they die as long as the corporate snakes that sent them there are satisfied, and so he gets to put on a flight suit and pretend he was ever a soldier. Big man, that Bush, with a big mouth and a rancid piece of jelly where most have a brain.
The little chimp-faced thug dares the opposition to attack our troops with callous and idiotic statements like "Bring 'em on." And thinks our troops are nothing more than mindless cannon fodder that do not mind a bit when the enemy takes the dare.
Every day our troops are being murdered for nothing, in full and necessary body armor, in temperatures of over 100 degrees each day, and they were promised they'd come home while Rumsfeld nonchalantly says they could now come home in, oh, three or four years. But then Rumsfeld, Bush and the rest of the gang that is head of our government will say anything. They think you're all too stupid to notice lies unless they're about a blowjob. Dignity has been brought back to the Oval Office, eh?
Is this enough for you? It's enough for the troops.
Will you hypocrites who claim to "support the troops" support them in their desire to get the hell out of a place they don't belong anyway, or will you just call them cowards as it was never the troops you cared about, it was the vicarious fun of war?
They die for what? Are you even paying attention to what's happening there?
Here's a quick way to understand what it looks like.
Show that you actually give a damn about the troops, not that liar and usurper Bush. Bring them home, assholes. And call Bush to account for the lies and idiocies that have killed so many of them. Otherwise we don't deserve brave soldiers like these who have already suffered enough for Haliburton. Otherwise you are not patriots, just cowards who love to watch soldiers die and then piously declaim on their "sacrifice." It's a sacrifice they're intelligent enough to realize is not worth making. It's sickening to watch the ungrateful American people lazily not care about the lives of the half of our entire military dying for nothing over there.
Or maybe you chicken hawks could go over there instead of them if you're so damn tough.
