How Dare They?

[posted by Callimachus]

In reference to this news segment on soldiers' perception of the war they are waging, and the discussion here about some dissenters' attitude toward the men and women in uniform, kindly see this. But you might want to take your blood pressure medicine first.

So, we pay the soldiers a decent wage, take care of their families, provide them with housing and medical care and vast social support systems and ship obscene amenities into the war zone for them, we support them in every possible way, and their attitude is that we should in addition roll over and play dead, defer to the military and the generals and let them fight their war, and give up our rights and responsibilities to speak up because they are above society?
