undergraduates at the University of Texas, an honors class

One of the many reasons that I will never send my kid to UT.

Here in North Dakota, those who serve are honored.

More nonsense from the Austin (Un-)American Statesman, the most liberal daily newspaper in Texas. The actual fact is that the military is drawing from families with incomes in the $30-200K range, in other words, the middle class. White Americans are overrepresented in military combat units relative to their proportion of the population, and blacks significantly underrepresented.

However, liberals have never held truth or accuracy in high regard.

"They won't sign up to fight a war they consider illegal and a mistake"

This is lib-speak for "I'm a cowardly, spineless jellyfish of a lib who wants to bask in all the freedoms that come under the umbrella of protection provided by the US military without actually having to risk my pathetic girly-man hide to ensure their survival"

"Sadly, many now think the military is for losers"

the soldiers are bigger heroes than any athlete, movie star, musician, journalist or politician.

They can't have it both ways. Either they support our military men and women, or they don't. But supporting them equals believing in their mission.

Being as the brave and handsome Sgt. Phantom has been to Iraq twice, and I am very proud of him for that, I confidently tell any fool who tries to sell me that line that I don't need or want a word from them, when their actions clearly show otherwise.

I would say then that they are not in Iraq because they are a bunch of pampered little elitists. But you can bet your ass that, if their personal safety was directly threatened, they would be screaming loud enough for someone like my husband to come along and rescue them, because they have neither the courage nor the ability to protect themselves.

All the more reason why I support a return to a military draft with NO exemptions for anyone.

When people have to start sharing the risk of military service thoughts will change.

"They told me they support the troops, but not the war itself. They won't sign up to fight a war they consider illegal and a mistake"

Pure unadulterated bullsh*t!! These bastards are nothing but cowards and spoiled rotten young punks who think they are entitled to all the freedoms we enjoy by virtue of the fact they were born in America. They haven't the first clue what the cost was in blood and treasure was that made America the destination of choice for people world wide who seek freedom and unlimited opportunity and also allows these ungrateful jerks to babble their drivel with impunity.

You're stronger than I--I had to change the station to sports talk, and I can usually hang in there for just about anything from Jeff. But you know he loves to bait conservatives with this kinda stuff.

This is, in part, a product of the MSM treatment of legitimate heroes and brilliant tactics as abuse of civilians and quagmire due to poor leadership. The military will never get any credit until the is the word "People's" in front of Army.

Though UT is in Texas it is a very LIBERAL university with even more anti American professors. What can we expect?

Someone should probably mail this to anyone who thinks the liberation of Iraq is "wrong and illegal."

Not most of the college guys I hang out with. 2 are enlisting in the marines after school and a bunch of others are doing Navy ROTC. And this is in the liberal bastion of PSU.

I downloaded a study today by Tim Kane of the Heritage Foundation that shows that since 2001, recruits are MORE LIKELY to be more highly educated than their same-age peers, and MORE LIKELY to come from a "90210"-type wealthier zip code.

In fact, if you look at who is fighting for us, it is virtually every group in society save one: Hollywood male stars, unlike World War II.

Red Flag! And possible future lawyers for terrorists.

Perhaps he should walk into a Marine Corps bar and let his feelings known.
