Anti-War nuts can’t afford dictionaries

Anti-War nuts can’t afford dictionaries

Yes, we’ve all been there: embarrassing spelling errors in our work for all the world to see. Heck, I should be the last person to criticize.

Yet, if you’re Cindy Sheehan, the face of the anti-war movement in the US, in San Francisco, anti-war moonbat central, you’d think you would take extra care before standing in front of this sign:

  • The sign is a reference to the fact that it is going to take them five years to walk from San Francisco to Massachusetts, then to New York. The bad news is that they are coming to visit you.

  • Actually, most soldiers serve about 12 months to 15 months and a lot of them volunteer for another tour of duty. Those who presume to speak for the troops should actually talk to them and reflect what they really think.

  • No.  I don’t presume to speak for the troops.  My comment was obviously an attempt to treat the extended tour of duty (15 months) with comic exaggeration.  If Bill Mauldin were alive today, he might have done something similar.  Certainly he would have said something canny and wry about the effect on morale.

    The phrase “5 years to many” evokes an image of a criminal sentence.  The troops are paying for the sins of their elders, as so often happens in world politics.  Perhaps many of the GIs, maybe even the great majority, do not see things that way, but see this ugly war as an ugly necessity.  I don’t know.  I do not wish to put words in their mouths.  To the extent that any of them do see things that way, they and I see things very differently.
