With all the eagerness of a dog returning to something it has vomited up, the conventional media has latched onto Rep. Murtha's rambling discourse about the Army being "broken" and "has done all they can."
Unmitigated crap. And I don't say this out of defensiveness or service pride - I'll tell you about how far we have had to come in a bit. First, though, a little material for you to mull over.
The US Army is quite open about how it works, what it sees for its future, what it has been told to do in the future by the civilian authorities we serve. You can see its budget, strength, recruiting, retention, doctrine and philosophy. And not just official sources. US Army Soldiers tell the world about things that go right and wrong.

If our army is "broken" and ruined after this little adventure in Iraq, I'd tell Hugo Chavez to invade RIGHT NOW! I only hope Murtha's constituents turn his sorry behind out of office the next chance they get. The man is a disgrace.
Wow. This is a straight, good read. It reeks of sincerity, integrity, and absolutely jibes with what I know for fact.
One should remind ex-marine Murtha that Gen'l Benedict Arnold was once regarded as a hero.
