This Memorial Day

Meteor Blades at Daily Kos gives his thoughts about Memorial Day this year. I stole the paragraph below, but you should read the whole thing there: Avoiding "Patriotic" Lies This Weekend
More than ever this year, it will be impossible to forget that in several wars - the Mexican War, the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American-Cuban War, the Vietnam War and the Iraq Attack - those dead soldiers were put in the ground by criminals inhabiting the highest levels of the U.S. government. Criminal politicians unworthy to touch the Stars and Stripes, much less wrap themselves in it to bolster their claim of having the best interests of America’s freedom and security at heart.

Criminals is the word. This bunch at 1600, along with their allies on the Hill, have stolen from us, lied to us, murdered our children in an illegal military action, raped our land, and picked our pockets. And they impeached Clinton for lying about a blowjob? Bush and his Administration should all be doing 25 to Life at Leavenworth, and his suck-boys in Congress should be doing 12 1/2 to 30 as accessories. Rat Bastids.
