They Write Letters

Sending Our Children To War. One of Five Letters:
To the Editor:

The obvious question between the lines of "Growing Problem for Military Recruiters: Parents" (front page, June 3) is, Where do our leaders in Washington stand on this issue? They are parents, too, and they overwhelmingly support the war in Iraq. Are they encouraging their children to enlist?

When President Bush stands in the Rose Garden extolling the virtues of the war in Iraq, I wonder: What are Jenna and Barbara doing this summer? The disturbing reality is that the children of the men who decided to take our country to war are pursuing the cushy, safe jobs of the elite while other people's children are fighting and dying.

Isn't leadership more than mere words?

Dear Ms. Ash. In a word, No.

Blonde nod to Steve Gilliard.

Not in this regime.

It has always been this way, don't you see?
Why aren't Republican supporters rushing out, en masse, to enlist and fight and die for their Noble War, why are the U.S. armed forces having a recruitment crisis?
There should be millions of Republican volunteers for this Crusade. After all, America was attacked!!! Americans should call on all Republican supporters to send their sons and daughters to enlist in this Great Cause, and to put their lives where their reactionary, bigoted, superstitious, fascist, ignorant, hateful, ultra-simplistic, deluded, death-craving, torturing, desecrating, blaspheming, savage, ungovernable, berserk fucking mouths are!

Is that too much to ask of those Great Patriots?

I was just asking a question, that's all.
Any answers?
