General Paul Eaton Interviewed By Bill Maher

Think I'm more inclined to believe a General than one of the Draft Dodgers at 1600.

Just sayin'.....



Constitutional crisis! Thank God the Democrats took over!

Holy hell! A General said that?!?!?

Why yes! Yes he did!

But wait! There's more!!!

The money quote came when Maher asked why the military still persists in supporting the president and his policies
"We've got this thing that, you know so many military believe that Republican administrations are good for the military, that is rarely the case and we have got to get a message through to every soldier, every family member, every friend of soldier, that the Republican party, the Republican dominated congress has absolutely been the worst thing that has ever happened to the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps..."
and he was drowned out when the crowd went nuts...

[And this is why I picked up and moved! I never got YouTube to import after the update to new blogger - a situation I just found wholly and utterly intolerable!]

Salon has an article from yesterday: The Army is ordering injured troops to go to Iraq

At Fort Benning, soldiers who were classified as medically unfit to fight are now being sent to war....

As the military scrambles to pour more soldiers into Iraq, a unit of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Benning, Ga., is deploying troops with serious injuries and other medical problems, including GIs who doctors have said are medically unfit for battle. Some are too injured to wear their body armor, according to medical records.

Ya, I wrote a little on that myself today, Apollo. This just stinks to high heaven.

Frederick, post that link. I'm all about spreading intelligent opinion and analysis. I like to think the blogosphere is a quid pro quo meritocracy, and it is never a bad thing to encourage critical thinking among the masses.

I've been following this issue, Apollo. Did you see my post at WTWC on the denial of mental health services to returning soldiers at Fort Carson, Colorado?

Frederick, back to yu for a sec. - would you contact me by email, please?

"...the Republican party, the Republican dominated congress has absolutely been the worth thing that has ever happened to the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps..."

I think you mean "worst" instead of "worth."

Thanks for pointing out that typo. It's been fixed. I hate the ones that spell-check doesn't catch.
