From Editor and Publisher:
Rall, who risked his life in Afghanistan himself as a visiting cartoonist/writer after 9/11, told E&P: "The word 'hero' has been bandied about a lot to refer to anyone killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. But anyone who voluntarily goes to Afghanistan or Iraq [as a soldier] is fighting for an evil cause under an evil commander in chief."
"Tillman gave up millions of dollars," Rall added. "To that extent I think he's admirable, but the cause is not. ... He would have been a better person and a better husband if he took the $3.6 million and played football and left the poor and beleaguered people of Afghanistan and Iraq alone."
God damn soulless fuck. I suppose Rall wanted us to sit back and take it after 9/11? He lives in New York City and still, he doesn't get why going into to Afgahnistan was the right thing.
Rall can thank people like Tillman that we haven't had another attack like 9/11. While he draws humorless cartoons shitting all over our troops, he does so while not even giving a thought as to why his neighborhood is not a pile of rubble.
What a scumbag. Truly. I don't think I've cursed so much in one day as I did today. As for David Astor of Editor and Publisher, he really ought to take his face off of Rall's ass before someone comes along to kick it.
Read the rest of the E&P crap.
h/t once again to Gerard
What I wouldn't give to see the end of the careers of both Ted Rall and Micah Wright.
