And why not? Those folks can't help it that they were unfortunate enough to be in the military when the Commander in Chief had the IQ of lime jello and the vice president was Satan. Never forget 9/11 says them. Never forget Bin Laden Determined To Strike In The US replies us.

You remember when you were little and you used to do the most repulsive and immature things to your little brother or sister? You called them names, you teased them mercilessly, you avoided them and never missed an opportunity to explain to them why they were a blight on the planet.

You're saying that it's all right for the taliban to shoot this kid if he did something stupid under the stress of being in a neighborhood where people were constantly trying to kill him. Who are you, General Patton or something?
Oh, we know, you're trying to out crazy Michael Scheuer.
