According to the Drudge Report, the Loony Left "Peace at any Price" Anti-Mongers are stepping up their activities from using the names of dead heroes to tormenting the live ones too.

Maybe the DoD should rethink their policy of disarming returning soldiers.....

Seems that the Far Left is more determined than ever to recreate the Viet Nam Era.

More on this as it developes.

Update: Meanwhile THIS is what a true American did to express his gratitude for the sacrifices made by members of our military.

It truly makes me sick to think that some people (who have probably never served in the military) think it's OK to dishonor the men and women who are serving this country. It amazes me that these people say they are protesting “for the Vets’ own good” when we are all adults. We all joined the military without a gun to our head. We all know how to think (and speak) for ourselves and don’t need some lunatics speaking for us. To know these people are out there dishonoring any Vet is disgusting, let alone the fact they are dishonoring those men and women who have been injured. These men and women should be honored because they have served.

We arent' trying to recreate the Vietnam era but rather are trying to avoid it. Unfortunately, the Doctrine of Manifest Destiny is a hard idea to kill.

I'll have to repectfully disagree with you Karlo. Recreating the Viet Nam era of snatching defeat out of (military)victory is EXACTLY what the anti-war crowd is doing, whether intentionally or not.

Wanda asked Cris the other day: "don't you READ the papers, and SEE whats going on in Iraq?" response would be, "yes Wanda, I do read the papers and watch the news, and it's "deju vu all over again"....reminds me when they were saying how badly things went for us in the Tet know, the one where WE inflicted almost a 20 to 1 causelty ratio?" Tet was the beginning of the end for us...NOT because we were losing in Viet Nam, but because the public perception was that we had no chance to win....that, coupled with an insane political micromanagment of military options/tactics inflicted the first loss in war we've ever experienced.

And the same forces are at work now. Look at the news; ALL they show are body counts...not a WORD about schools, infrastructure rebuilt,hospitals operating,marshlands restored, etc, etc,etc.

TWO provences out of 18 are "Insurgent" strongholds..pretty interesting that all the news is about those activities, and NO word on whats happening in the other 16 provences EH?
