It's hard to fathom why a Vietnam veteran would join the anti-war forces of Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore. After all, Sheehan and Moore are the successors to the hippie protesters that spit on the troops and called them "baby killer!" at the end of the Vietnam War. Anybody with an understanding of history would realize that the U.S. soldiers in Vietnam were beaten in the Capitol building, college campuses, and the editorial pages of newspapers--and not on the battlefield. Now Congressman John Murtha (D-Pa.), a veteran and former POW, is essentially lending aid and comfort to those seeking to reignite the Vietnam era, as perfectly shown by this "thank you" in the uber-liberal "Progressive" magazine. Maybe it's mind control?
The main reason that Democrats and the media give so much credence to the opinions of people like Murtha and Sheehan is because they've "been there" in terms of sacrifice (and propaganda value) and agree with the liberal ready-to-cave attitude toward Iraq. What the Democrats and media ignore are the people who "are there" today. This was perfectly illustrated by the Democrats' outrage when Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) restated the words of a Marine currently in Iraq who dared to criticize the opinions of the vaunted Rep. Murtha, who is, uhh, a veteran after all.
If this keeps up, Bernard Goldberg will fill an encyclopedia before he retires.
