Bill O'Reilly blew that "fight" with Michael Moore.
Moore kept hammering home one topic:
"So you would sacrifice your child to secure Fallujah? I want to hear you say that," demanded Moore.
To which O'Reilly kept replying that he would send himself.
What I would have said if asked that question is this:
bq. It would not be my choice to sacrifice my child, you idiot. No parent makes that choice for their child. You can enlist in the army when you are 18 years old, an adult. An adult who makes his or her own choices. When you ask if I would sacrifice my child, you make it sound as if parents all across the U.S. are rounding up their young children and boarding them on planes bound for Iraq against their will. Maybe even dropping down them down a live volcano to plead with the Gods to bring peace to Iraq.
Asking me if I would sacrifice my own child is disengenous, Mr. Moore. Now if you were to ask me how I would feel if my grown child were to freely and of his own will enlist in the army during this war, I would tell you that I would be proud of him for wanting to serve his country, join the process of bringing peace and democracy to another land and combat terrorism. I would be damn proud. Yes, I would be scared that he would never come back, but it would be my son making the sacrifice, Mr. Moore, not me. Ask an honest question the next time and I'll be able to give you an honest answer.
But that's just me.
