[ # ] Support Our Troops
November 13th, 2006 under Hypocrisy, Politics, Rant

Just a quick observation today. I’m feeling pretty sick.

Sunday morning, as I was flipping through the channels, I saw some sort of panel discussion show on the local Fox channel. Brit Hume, and a couple of other guys were talking about how great Rumsfeld was (go figure) and the following phrase was repeated twice.

“Our current military is fat and slow.” Could that phrase be used to encourage our enemies? Wonder what would have happened if Kerry said that too. He’d still probably not apologize correctly for the offence, but I’m sure he’d be called out for it.

It really didn’t matter that their argument didn’t show how their view of how the military ought to be might have helped make for a better situation in Iraq. In fact, their arguments didn’t really make sense to me at all.

Note to self. 1. Don’t skip church. 2. Stay away from Fox

My son told me while on his first tour of duty in Iraq NOT to watch Fox News. So I learned early on not to watch them. He said the soldiers constantly laughed at the inaccuracies. He seemed to feel CNN’s reporting
was closer to the truth and in fact asked me to send him their news stories. His platoon couldn’t wait for his packages to come…they new there would be news from CNN. My son is coming home soon. I can’t wait. Please pray for his safe return.

If their assessment were true (that the military is fat and slow) who’s fault is that? Hasn’t Rumsfeld had, like, seven years to fix things?
