Or how liberals avoid reality. It is always interesting when I see some liberal douche claim the military is unnecessary and all things can be resolved if only we sat down at the kumbyah table and work out our differences.
College professor Colman McCarthy had an op-ed in the Washington Post over the last week decrying Ivy League schools accepting ROTC and military recruitment on campus in the wake of the overturn of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. In it, he reveals his feelings on our military and the brave Americans who sign up to serve.
To oppose ROTC, as I have since my college days in the 1960s, when my school enticed too many of my classmates into joining, is not to be anti-soldier. I admire those who join armies, whether America’s or the Taliban’s: for their discipline, for their loyalty to their buddies and to their principles, for their sacrifices to be away from home. In recent years, I’ve had several Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans in my college classes. If only the peace movement were as populated by people of such resolve and daring.
Look at the comments and see how brain lacking liberals decide that if only the military was gone this world would be a better place.
