So predictably slimy.........

I was discusssing this on another blog about a month ago. After the invasion of Iraq, and the (pre-surge) policies of the Bush administration werent going so well, every pinko photographer worth his weight in Abercrombie and Fitch apparel wanted to get inside Dover AFB and take pictures of the flag-draped coffins coming home. These pictures were to be trumpeted across the land, in vivid color, on the front of every newspaper, magazine and blog to make the administration look bad. Period. I knew then, as I do now, that these photogs had no concern for the families of these fallen soldiers whatsoever. It was all orchastrated to score political points in the arena of public opinion and nothing more. Today's article by Byron York, only reinforces that belief......

"So far this month, 38 American troops have been killed in Afghanistan. For all of 2009, the number is 220--more than any other single year and more than died in 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 combined.....The number of arrivals at Dover is increasing. But the journalists who once clamored to show the human cost of war are nowhere to be found."

Might that be because the CIC has a "D" in front of his name instead of an "R"? They are as completely pathetic as they are predictable.

Your right, but unfortunately I think the R's are just as bad as the D's are when it comes to these matters. IMHO we have a bunch of spineless, gutless weasels in politics and neither side seems to have a man of integrity to come to the forefront anytime soon. I would like to see someone like Allen Keyes be our next President. You could never question his character. But who really knows. I'm glad you got Mak's back. Talk with ya soon. Adios Amigo. feeno

I agree that there's no shortage of slimeball politicians on either side of the aisle feeno. It seems that if these photographers were genuinely concerned, they would be taking pictures now instead of being completely out of the picture, nowhere to be seen. And oh yes, I like Alan Keyes also. His articles really cut to the heart of the matter.

JD, I completely agree with you. As a member of the armed forces, this hits me especially hard. I can't say I support the antiwar position entirely, but the Obama Administration is undertaking things in Afghanistan which, if we were to take the antiwar movement seriously, violates the movement's tenets more severely than did Bush.

Good points, thanks for paying attention, on behalf of all of us whose lives are still stuck in the machine of war.
