Any reasonable person would be incensed at the idea that Walter Reed Army Hospital is the “crown jewel” of our military’s health care system. You’d think that those who support the war in Iraq with every fiber of their being would be even more incensed that their fellow Americans- those doing the actual fighting and dying- might be exposed to such squalid condition. Nope, not if your one of the chickenhawks at the Victory Caucus. The only thing that these brave souls fighting the ideological war on the home front are concerned about is keeping their eyes on the prize: victory in Iraq. Yes, not until Iraqis enjoy American-style democracy while they choke down Coca Colas and Big Mac can victory be declared. Until then, the fighting keyboarders at the Victory Caucus will spare no rhetorical excess in the pursuit of total victory for Freedom and Our Way of Life.
If you happen to find yourself wounded or maimed in the fighting in Iraq…well, you’re no longer really of any use to those still able to fight the Good Fight, are you? If you were any kind of American at all, you’d know to steer clear of ambushes and IEDs.
Jeebus, do these people know no shame?
