A Veteran named Nate emailed me this item that infuriated him:
Rocketman is upset at Ted Koppel for giving a tribute to our fallen:
"Soldiers have been dying in the line of duty for a long time--even in peacetime, theirs is a dangerous profession. When did the left suddenly start caring? I'm afraid that's true. Soldiers have been dying in the line When did the left suddenly start caring?"
I know it pains you to hear all the names of our departed vets because you led the charge with the rest of the 101st fighting keyboard brigade to send them into battle. A soldier dying in or out of combat is a serious and painful matter that cuts between blue and red states, yet you only look to take yourself off the hook. Reading the names in honoring these brave people who are actually out in the battlefield, you evoke attacks on liberals because you really want to assail yourself.
You waste so much time trying to prove the validity of Intelligent design, (and I hate using the word intelligence in a post describing the one you just penned) you might have had the decency to make sure the evidence was sound, they were properly armed, had a thoughtful plan, and were fighting for more than a set of unproven ideals. The uniforms they wear contain living, breathing human beings (not chess pawns) just trying to survive in a world gone crazy.
