One More Chickenhawk

One quick note - I searched in vain for Mac Thornberry's military service on his congressional web-site and in wikipedia. He joins the ranks of the long list of republican chickenhawks who talk about "enduring the 'long war'" but have no clue about how horrible war is. He said in his editorial in the Amarillo Globe Republican Thursday, February 15th "Our brave military men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan are on the front lines, but we at home are participating in the war, too." [my bold] How in the world is Thornberry participating? By writing escalation editorials and making speeches on the floor of congress? Come on Mac - let's support our troops by bringing them home now and saving their lives! Anna Quindlen said in her Newsweek column this week "There is no better way to support those who have fought valiantly in Iraq than to guarantee that not one more of them dies in the service of the political miscalculation of their leaders." Amen!
