Maybe he meant "combat" veterans. Maybe you don't know the difference. Maybe we should just do away the DOD altogether. That would certainly eliminate future PTSD and traumatic blast injury cases.

Hollywood cranked that bilge out endlessly. It was a silly generality, not based on hard data, but when you're dealing with peaceniks trying to justify their anti-American antics, that has never been a problem.

          Of course, reports of soldiers having a hard time assimilating upon their return from Iraq and Afghanistan are more peacenik fantasy, right?

          The suicide rates? The difficulty in finding employment? The rate of depression? The horribly maimed and injured?


          All just Hollywood, no doubt.

            Is "peacenik" the new "libstain"? If you throw it out there one more time, do you think it might actually become an insult?

            As opposed to what you and the rest of the chickenhawks on Sunday talk shows seem to think, it is not "anti-American" to oppose the use of American troops in efforts to police the world. America has air superiority - ground operations should rarely be necessary going forward.

              There would be no way to collect that fine. Yahoo could have told them to fck off and nothing would have happened. The collective outrage would have been overwhelming. The left would have been p|ssed because of the encroachment on actual freedoms and the right would have seen a massive government overreach and attack on private property.

                        The Secretary General of NATO weighs in:

                        With Russia, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has tried long and hard to build a partnership that respects Russia's security concerns and is based on international rules and norms. Regrettably, Russia has rejected our efforts to engage. Russia has trampled on all the rules and commitments that have kept peace in Europe and beyond since the end of the Cold War. It is now clear that Russia regards the West as an adversary, not a partner.

                        The terrorist threat is now growing in Syria and Iraq. The Islamic State terrorists are fueling the fire of sectarianism already burning across the Middle East and North Africa, with the risk rising that terror will be exported back to our shores.

                        We are confronted by forces of oppression that reject our liberal democracy and our liberal, rules-based international order. While their agendas and ideologies are different, they are virulently against the West and what we represent. They will grasp every opportunity to undermine our values of individual liberty, freedom, democracy, the rule of law and human rights.

                        In this age of unrest and revisionism, free societies must stand strong and united as a force for freedom. We must be prepared to act when we have to. We must work with like-minded nations. And we must show confidence in our own values.
                        That last sentence is an interesting addendum in this context. He doesn't stop here.

                        Europe and North America are at the core of the global community. Our strength does not come from military might alone, but from the strength of our democracies and our economies. We must strengthen our community of free nations by continuing to reach out to like-minded partners....Our liberal international order—embracing freedom, democracy, the market economy, common rules and norms, and renouncing territorial conquest—has brought unprecedented peace, progress and prosperity to billions of people. This has been an historic achievement. So we must stand up with greater confidence for our principles and our values.
                        There, he did it again in the last sentence....

                        These values are now under threat. They cannot be taken for granted. As we approach the end of over a decade of fighting in Afghanistan, there is a temptation to turn inward. But the world will not become less dangerous just because we wish it to be. Threats will not go away just because we want to look away. We must keep a global perspective and counter isolationism and retreat.

                        If we fail to defend democracy, forces of oppression will seize the opportunity. Because appeasement does not lead to peace. It just incites the tyrants. Failure to counter oppression will only invite further oppression. Military action will always be the last resort, but we must be able to use it when we need to. Not to wage war, but to build peace.

                        This is a time when our values are being challenged and our will is being tested. Keeping NATO strong and North America and Europe united has never been more important. It is the only way to preserve our freedom, protect our people, and promote our values.
                        hmm....
