So Bobber, what's your service record? Have you served in Iraq and gladly taken the stop-losses? If so, you make speak freely. If not, I'm certain that Atlanta has many, many recruiting centers; and you can show us your bravery and dedication to Bush's war management policies. Request a Baghdad patrol- my buddy Tim was an Army ER doc there for two years & I'm sure they'll take care of you (until you get back to a VA hostpital, where Bush has stripped funding during a war
Personally, I think the way the Neo-cons including yourself) are relentlessly spinning this as a slam on the troops is absolutely reprehensible. You guys know what he meant, and you are using the troops AGAIN to make political hay. It's cowardly.
