You haven't heard me EVER make disparaging remarks about other's military service....not even those who routinely do so themselves.
Its a matter of pride. You may or may not understand, I have no idea of what your background is, and again, nor do I care.
And just to set you straight....it was BILL who brought up my service....NOT ME....in the form of an insult of me wearing my uniform as a "costume". Once again, you are spewing substantively empty, factually inaccurate accusations......you're batting .1000!
But thank you for commenting. It once again shows you have nothing meaningful to contribute to this thread.
And no, I'm not going away. How would you feed your fetish if you didn't have me to insult with baseless claims?
Since you wrote that you're just a rodeo clown seeking mostly just to rile people up I've been doing an excellent job of ignoring your blather. I started to respond to your earlier post of you repeating the lie that the US supplied WMDs to Iraq (some pesticides made by US companies were used by Hussein in his chemical weapons...a far cry "the US supplied WMDs" nonsense), but stopped myself. But after reading the rubbish below I can't help myself. You win, congrats:
How Did Iraq Get Its Weapons? We Sold Them
by Neil Mackay and Felicity Arbuthnot
Reports by the US Senate's committee on banking, housing and urban affairs -- which oversees American exports policy -- reveal that the US, under the successive administrations of Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr, sold materials including anthrax, VX nerve gas, West Nile fever germs and botulism to Iraq right up until March 1992, as well as germs similar to tuberculosis and pneumonia. Other bacteria sold included brucella melitensis, which damages major organs, and clostridium perfringens, which causes gas gangrene.

Here is another link.
For the record, I too think UB was out of line with the uniform comment...but take it to PM's rather than soiling (;)RK) another thread with a personal argument.
This crap is getting so old.
Thought the 'conservatives' on board would understand my comments, but apparently they only read what I said as a slam on a fellow soldier...which I will now make indelibly clear for all.
When you rail against the US objective in Iraq as much as DNF does, how can he then consider the rest of us to believe he is supportive of our nation? Oh sure, he was in the service...begrudgingly...and no doubt poor-mouthing it all the while he got his internship years out of the way. (N0 I wasn't in the medical Army, but I had friends there that were doing it for that reason. Seemed reasonable to me)
So if you are full of animosity for your Commander in Chief, how can that relate to making us believe you were an American in combat, supporting the American way of life? It must have been a miserable existance for DNF to wear a uni for a country, headed up by GWB as CIC, who he was holding in contempt.
Subsequently, my observation was he wasn't placing any more respect for his uniform than it being a 'costume' he was required to wear. As much disdain as he holds for the leadership and administration he served under, how could he have any pride in his uniform?
PS Nothing makes me puke more than the liberal/socialists statement of "we are against the military, but we are in favor of the troops" That is the royal epitome of GDG.
WAKE UP AMERICA. The PC crowd is now running your nation into the ground.
I just think that you are making a lot of assumptions and big jumps based on things you have read and deduced on an internet forum. To make a disrespectful statement like you did, you really need more than that to back it up.
If you knew for a fact that what you described about dnf is true, then I could see where your statement would make sense and *possibly* be called for. But until you know it as cold, hard truth, you should just remember the saying about not having something nice to say...
I did not serve in the military and I have much respect for anyone who has/does serve(d) honorably. As far as we know, dnf did just that. In this circumstance, your comment should piss off anyone who has ever worn a uniform for the United States of America. After all, they have all fought for his right to disagree with our government.
