They can be as unamerican as they want. No one has to elect them to office, or tolerate treason when the Unamericanism evolves to treason, as it is doing in many cases, like Joe Wilson, and lately Murtha.
I'm an American by birth, not by creed. I have made no profession of faith in any American principles, and neither has most everyone else. A "Proposition Nation" is downright Jacobin.
If John Murtha had a Medal of Honor or even a Silver Star I might concider him a hero, but the Bronze Star and Vietnamese medal were handed out like M & Ms.
Most officers who went to Vietnam came home with them, if they served in any kind of combat unit. Like most of us, of that era, he did his duty.
Nothing more and nothing less.
As far as his military expertise, I am not impressed with anyone who spent 37 years in the Marine Corps and retired a Lt. Col.
I am more comfortable with the three and four star generals running the show.
And calling anyone who disagrees with you 'unamerican' cheapens that term as well. Unlike Mr. Williams I spent the better part of my adult life wearing the uniform of this country's military. I was defending the rights of those people Mr. Williams is attacking. Those rights include holding beliefs and opinions different from mine. They may disagree with the war, they may dislike the President, they may openly question the motivations of the administration, it is their right as American to do so. It is one of the things that makes this country different from most of the other countries in the world and is one of our greatest strengths. And I hope we never lose it, never reach the point where people are afraid to disagree with their goverment for fear of being labled 'unamerican' by the likes of Mr. Williams.
