I’ve seen a lot of leftwing comments in my life…so have you, I’m sure.
This one bothered me more than usual for obvious reasons. It was addressed to our buddy SilverFiddle at another blog….
“Silver… just finished reading an article on the decades long slide in Army recruitment goals.
It stated the plan was built on the idea that if America was ever attacked, people would quickly sign up to defend her. Now they are not so sure.
For years in Iraq we operated with sub par troops, victims of both physical and mental issues, drug addicts and understaffed battalions.
If not for forcing troops to over stay their deployments, we’d have been in a real fix.
The WW II generation is over, and with it, the drive that inspired many to great things in the name of country.”
Z: “sub par troops”, as if everybody in WWII was some MIGHT GI JOE with no problems, right? And, of course, they froze in WWI and WWII but they got through it. They had little food, they had far less than anybody in Afghanistan and Iraq. They couldn’t email loved ones, etc.etc.
What this commenter neglects to consider is LOVE FOR COUNTRY and how the Left has so badly robbed our kids of that in our schools and then expect them to fight for it. The WWII soldiers loved this country; they’d been raised in school to love it, as does every student around the world except in America.
We have MANY American kids joining up and many doing astonishingly heroic acts in Iraq and Afghanistan. ….And, of course, nobody can deny there are those who won’t fight, which was also the case in the last two World Wars.
-Do you feel they’re not willing to fight anymore? I think every generation’s had plenty of those who won’t fight… think it’s much worse today?
-Do you feel they have any reason to fight for a country their liberal teachers disdain? When kids don’t even learn the Pledge of Allegiance and a happy respect for faith (“Christmas vacation”,etc.) is stripped of them in order to placate foreigners, why fight for US?
Tell me what you think of that comment…thanks.
Until we get to this again……..we’re not going to have kids who care:
