"F*ck the Dead Troops!"

If you need something to wake you up and get your blood boiling, here it is. Highlights:

Fuck the Troops
By Ian Murphy.

So, 4000 rubes are dead. Cry me the Tigris. Another 30,000 have been seriously wounded. Boo fucking hoo. They got what they asked for—and cool robotic limbs, too.

But maybe these sensationalist quotes were taken out of context?
As a society, we need to discard our blind deference to military service. There’s nothing admirable about volunteering to murder people. There’s nothing admirable about being rooked by obvious propaganda. There’s nothing admirable about doing what you’re told if what you’re told to do is terrible.
I wonder who this guy is voting for? Here's a hint: it's not John McCain.
Take John McCain, or “McNasty,” as they called him in high school. While the conventional wisdom says that Obama gets a pass from the media, McCain is clearly the least scrutinized presidential candidate.

Thanks to Bash Man
