I am incensed by the total LACK of support for our military being demonstrated by the Democratic "heavies" in the Senate -- to wit, Senator Kennedy, Senator Durbin, and others. Their first love is obviously for the terrorists incarcerated at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo. Remember, for a moment, that most of these givers of aid and comfort to our enemies and underminers of our troops' morale are filthy rich kids grown up without ever having worked a day in their lives or having served a day in the military. Teddy Kennedy lost one brother in WWII and had another serverly injured in that same conflict. Since then, not a single member of the Kennedy clan has donned the uniform of his country. On the anniversary of the first revelation of the charges of the alleged "abuses" committed at Abu Ghraib, Sen. Kennedy has a several-hundred-words-long "statement," not calling for more support for our boys on the front lines, but calling attention once again to the "abuses" committed toward his darling terrorists kept for good reason behind bars in Abu Ghraib.

Now, this week Sen. Durbin of Illinois has led the Democratic Party to new depths by comparing what has been done to a single Gitmo detainee described in a single statement by a single FBI investigator to be analogous to the depradations committed by: the Nazis, the KGB, and Pol Pot. Now, any reasonable listener could only conclude that, by that analogy, Mr. Durbin was slandering the hard-working men and women of our armed forces.

With the New Media up in arms about Durbin's statement, Durbin has refused to apologize. Meanwhile the Mainstream Media (MSM) has pretty much spiked the story of Durbin's egregious slander of our military men and women.

On Hugh Hewitt's blog, I saw this terrific piece in FroggyRuminations
literally calling for Senator Durbin's political hide!

Wow! Great post -- and great Lincoln post, to boot (even though I am normally more of a fan of the Stars-and-Bars bunch)!

I am always amused by "Patriots" who use other contrasting opinions as their basis for being alligned with the enemy. As a Viet era vet, I share the position with many fellow vets that this war was launched on completely false pretenses - and has nothing to do with the "freedom" we enjoy in this country. Quite the contrary, it is a veiled extortion of billions of dollars for a few corporate entities. If we were going after Osama, it might be a different story, but youmay have noticed - Osama has gone from "Wanted, Dead or Alive" to "not that important" as a target. Why is it those of you in favor of this war fall back on patriotism when someone holds a different position? Why is it those of you in favor of this war don't send your own children? Send your own. Make your own case. Allow those of us who feel differently - to freely express those opinions. It was the basis for the foundation of this country.
