The Latest Liberal Attack On The Military

by John Hawkins | November 2, 2006 6:46 am

A lot of liberals absolutely despise the military and so they end up in this eternal wrestling match with themselves that pits the oozing contempt with which they regard our troops with what it’s politically advisable for them to actually say. Every so often, they lose the match and their acidic dislike of our soldiers comes out into the open.

The latest example of this comes from liberal journalist/propagandist Seymour Hersh[1], who had this to say about our troops serving in Iraq:

“In Vietnam, our soldiers came back and they were reviled as baby killers, in shame and humiliation. It isn’t happening now, but I will tell you – there has never been an [American] army as violent and murderous as our army has been in Iraq.”

In other words, he hated the troops that fought in Vietnam and he hates the troops fighting in Iraq today. Unfortunately, the only surprising thing about that is that Hersh is willing to admit it.
