how to kill an army

while blowing hot air about supporting the troops: read and weep.

When the soldiers talk like this there is resignation. There is a corrosive anger, too, that bubbles out, like the words pouring unbidden from a chaplain's assistant who has come to bless a patrol. 'Why don't you tell the truth? Why don't you journalists write that this army is exhausted?'

THIS IS the kind of STUFF this country needs to have pounded into their heads. MORE on the DRAFT....let these people know that's coming for them, and they'll stand up to end it. HORRENDOUS and FABULOUS article. THANKS for the link. I saw a tiny bit about the draft, but this one tied in with the army's exhaustion is exactly how it should have been put. I was thrilled, and heartsick at the same time to read it. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

It's a good thing the chimp is so on the ball supporting our troops. He is supporting them in their quest for mental breakdowns, broken families, injury, and death. Thirty percent of West Point grades leaving the ranks...Jesus. I hate this administration with a vigor that makes me heartsick. He has single handedly destroyed our world standing, our military, and our economy. what is left for him to fuck up?
