Rep. Murtha plays the bully

[CDR Salamander]

All due respect to Rep. Murtha and all, but I am sorry; just because you served does not give you the right to play bully-boy with those who have not.

Sure, it is OK, sometimes, if you are backed into a corner to pull out your DD214 if someone who never served is talking about Tactical issues and is smearing and/or sending out bad gouge, etc; but when it comes to Strategic issues, I am sick of the "You haven't served, you can't disagree with me. My opinion cannot be questioned." way of avoiding the core issue.

That is so old, tired, and foolish. Prime Minister Thatcher never served, however it can be argued that she is easily in the Top 5 civilian leaders who "Got it." Should she have caved to the opinion of some Old Labor defeatist who thought they should give the Falklands to the Argentineans, or unilaterally disarmed in the face of the Soviets just because he spent the mid-1940 fighting his way up Italy? No. The Chickenhawk habit is way past Chicken$(%t. Here is the video. It says it was posted by ”Nancy Pelosi”, and most of the video "she" has is pro Left. Maybe it is just me, but I don't think this had the desired effect.

BTW…if you want to find out what people with "standing" think about Jackiepoo go here:

After your done with that go here for some more folks with "standing":

CONTENT WARNING:  ARMY RANGERS CURRENTLY SERVING AND RECENTLY RETURNED FROM IRAQ FEEL VEEEERRY STRONGLY ABOUT JACKIEPOO AND ARE NOT AFRAID TO USE "COLORFUL" LANGUAGE TO EXPRESS THIER FEELINGS.
