Perhaps my final word on the "Chickenhawk"debate. I know, it's done to death, but I've something new to add, hear me out.
As a military guy stationed overseas it has meant much to me to have stateside Blogs to read over the past year, to get a feel for the mood of America, the mood that isn't reflected in mainstream media.
I'm have no problem whatsoever with some of the anti-war crowd, insofar as that outspoken but misguided minority proves to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that Freedom of Speech, something I defend, is not in danger in America - even as they ironically protest otherwise. Thank you for validating my efforts. Now please stop helping kill my brothers in arms.
I'm eternally greatful to the so-called "chickenhawks." Those who present their case for all the world to see via the internet, subjecting themselves to ridicule from that same misguided Left who would silence them forever if they could only get the majority of Americans to recognize their inherent inborn superiority.
In John Cole's comments I offered to buy any "chickenhawk" blogger a drink when I return stateside. Mike from Cold Fury pointed out I was digging myself a deep hole with such an offer. He was giving me a good-natured joshing, but I was serious, and his comment made me realize I'd better not wait to get home. Too many bloggers.
I appreciate you guys, and over the next year or so it's drinks on me.
I'll find you, big blogs, small blogs, in between. Four each month, around the weekends, a drink in the tip jar. I've already started.
Military guy buys drinks for "chickenhawks". The loony lefties will hate me for it. But they're not gettin' my Bud Lite.
Last word; by the power vested in me by Tom Tomorrow I left this in comments at Winds of Change:
Even though I'm a staunch moderate I've finally been convinced by the anti-war Left on this issue; everyone who doesn't wear a military uniform can henceforth only Blog about cats.
I mean, only if they have a cat.
*Chuckles and raises his glass*
Well here's to your safe return so you can fulfill that promise!Posted by Jim "Gozer" Yee at November 15, 2003 11:10 PM
Totally agree's, and tosses back a good glass of claret, to the health of those now doing a beautifull job in Iraq.Posted by chinditz at November 16, 2003 05:46 PM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
