Heroes

Tomorrow is the 4th of July.

Today we ought to remember the people that all too many Americans are quick to berate.

A. It's their choice. There is no draft.

B. They are not fighting for our freedom, but to babysit a civil war in a country that was never a threat to us.

C. Their Commander in Chief should be tried for war crimes for sending these loyal men and women in harms way for something that didn't involve America's security...and Iraq was never a threat to America.

D. While I feel terrible for these young men and women who couldn't have anticipated the most incompetent commander in chief in American history, our military has a responsibility to America first, not Bush/Cheney and their oil war.

Thank God President Obama will bring these brave men and women home, and if they are called to fight again, it will be for a real cause to protect and defend America against a real enemy.

I'd say the most berated soldiers in America are the Guardsmen who served and are serving time in prison for obeying orders and following training, while the mercenaries who trained them and civilian leaders who ordered them to torture and abuse prisoners have not faced any accountability.

A sign reading "Thank God for IEDs" is asinine, but far more of us have let down our soldiers by allowing them to be scapegoated in the torture scandal.
