As you know, this week's rationale for staying the course in Dick & Dubya's Excellent Invasion is that withdrawal now would dishonor the brave men and women who have already been slaughtered in the
In this war, we have said farewell to some very good men and women, including 491 heroes of the National Guard and Reserves. We mourn the loss of every life. We pray for their loved ones. These brave men and women gave their lives for a cause that is just and necessary for the security of our country, and now we will honor their sacrifice by completing their mission.
Seems clear enough. So I ask you, what kind of traitorous bastard could justify emboldening our enemies and endangering our fighting men and women by saying something like this:
To be honest, it is time to pull out now. As you said, no one needs to die for others who have died. Everybody has their sacrifices. And we do not need to sacrifice more people. We know what everybody else has sacrificed, and we have to praise that right now.
That would be Spec. Jeans Cruz, unemployed Iraq war veteran and, in fact, one of the two soldiers who removed Saddam Hussein from his hiding place, speaking on Keith Olbermann's show (found at WTF Is It Now?!?).
I'm guessing that Spec. Cruz will not be receiving his invitation to join the American Legion anytime soon.
