repeating semantics 101

Once again, it's terrorist. Not militant. Not gunman. Not "suspected Palestinian." Terrorist. Say it with me. T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T.

See here for previous reference. Thank you.

Also, if anyone knows of any bloggers who are Veterans, please let me know. Thanks.

My fabulous husband is a Gulf War vet.

Me! Is there a prize?

Do I need to upload my DD 214?

I did six years for Uncle Sugar, starting in the spring of 1972. I don't require that anyone address me as Specialist Hill or anything (SP5, MI, for those keeping score), but this is one life experience I'll likely never regret.

I was serving as a weatherman in Korea, and due to be shipped back to the U.S. in 3 days, when the Tonkin Gulf incident occurred. That qualified me as a Vet for the G.I. Bill bennies, but I sure came by it the easy way.

I'm just wondering how someone could be a "suspected Palestinian." It's one of those things that you pretty much are or you aren't, and being a Palestinian is not a bad thing. Being a Palestinian who's a terrorist is, but that's only because of the terrorist part. Could I be a "suspected American"?

I did eight years in the Marine Corps - five active and three reserve.


Marines, 227 years old and they still have to screw their hats on to keep from losing them.

ok, i used to know a guy who was a Vietnam vet, Joel--but his URL comes up empty these days. http://www.logic-bomb.com/

lemme see if i can find him somewheres. he was veddy veddy coool.

Happy Birthday fellow jarheads! 227 years old and still rockin!

All together now, T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T.

I'd like to hear the news announcer say, in those smooth dulcet tones, "Hamas (Or whichever group of cretins it is) accepted blame for today's atrocity."

Then they can save "Claimed responsibility" for "A large group of Europeans today accepted responsibility for their own actions and stations, and vowed to never again blame America for their own shortcomings."

Oh, and as long as I'm dreaming, I'd like a Corvette. Blue.

DavidMSC is active, and a helluva great guy.

I served in the Navy from 1965 to 1969 and spent a good portion of the time in Viet fucking Nam. Not only am I a blogger, but I am a rabid war blogger.

The Rev. Donald Sensing is not only a Methodist minister but a retired Field Artillery officer with a distinguished record of service during the first Gulf War. One of his blogs is at onehandclapping.blogspot.com

I also gather from the writing of Tacitus (the blogger, not the Roman) that he is a veteran.

Currently entering Year Number Fifteen of active duty in the US Air Force, and Year Number Two of active "bloghood." Great site you have - keep up the great work.

I'm a Vietnam-era veteran. Which means I served during the war in Vietnam, but not in the war zone itself. (This qualifies me for membership in the American Legion but not the VFW.) I was an Air Force Russian language spook stationed on Okinawa. I'm taking myself out to lunch for Veterans Day.

I was going to go into the Marines, but they found out my parents were married...
I kid, I kid!
