one good turn
Oh how original, calling soldiers killers for hire. Just like the phrases it's about the oiiilllllllll and for the children, the soldiers as killer routine is getting old.
Mr. Bix not only spewed his garbage on his own website, but went over to Weblog Action Center for no other reason than to piss on Kathy Kinsley's thoughtful idea. He actually took the time to go through is blog and find ugly posts he wrote about soldiers so he can drop the links in the WAC post. What a guy.
I do a lot of name-calling and post-ripping-apart here, but I never go to someone's site with the sole purpose of raining on their parade, especially when the idea one is putting forth is a fundamentally good one. But what do you expect from a guy who says, in response to soldiers talking on CNN about the Pledge of Allegiance:
Shut the fuck up you stupid-ass killers. You belong to an organization dedicated to training you to kill other human beings, so don't you fucking dare to claim any authority to preach to me about God.
Actually, they belong to an organization dedicated to protecting your cowardly ass, so you can have the freedom to practice or not practice any religion you want, asswipe.
In wars, people die. Better by far that if people need to die, it is the people trained to murder and destroy, than the people caught in the middle.
So what he is saying - and correct me if I read this wrong - is that if we go to war, he would rather see all our soldiers die than one Iraq civilian. You know what, dimwit? Those people in Iraq don't five a fuck about you. When all of our soldiers are dead, as per your wish, and Saddam and his people come to take us over because our army is gone, not one of those militant death-wishers is going to come up to you and say "oh, yes here is the man who supported us. Let's be nice to him." No, they are either going to blow your brains out, torture you, shove a hot poker up your butt, or use you as a slave.
On the other hand, if we do go to war and for some reason the war ends up on our soil, you can be sure that if Sgt. Stryker recognized you and you saw you being captured by the enemy, he would probably spit on you and wish you well.
Have fun out there, Blix. And be careful what you wish for.
