who went out of his way to provoke anti-war protestors.

It shouldn't matter. He wouldn't have been able to provoke them if they're as peacefull as they claim.

Yeah, and they never spit of returning Vietnam soldiers either.

I hate some people. And that's not a term I use lightly.

I saw this earlier today, and sent the writer an email regarding the one-sided investigation he did. I also gave him the links to the video I shot, with a short explanation of the things that are on the video which back up Josh's story (as well as the way the other vets and wounded soldiers were treated by the crowd).

No email reply from the fellow yet; but it's only been 9 hours.

:-)

It is a picture of a seasoned political activist, maybe even a conservative plant, who went out of his way to provoke anti-war protestors.

So what? These 'peace-nuts' are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. They want everyone else to do what they are unwilling to do - swallow it when someone provokes them.

Now wait a second. Sparling is a war hero. Is he being "swift boated" by the anti-war / pro Kerry crowd?

Of course the difference is, the swift boat vets were telling the truth.

All together, they paint a different picture of Sparling: It is a picture of a seasoned political activist, maybe even a conservative plant, who went out of his way to provoke anti-war protestors.

He has all the hallmarks of a conservative plant. Military service, missing limbs due to combat and a purple heart.

His counterparts have a lilly liver, yellow streak and reap the benefits of never serving, like exercising their right to free speech as defended by "conservative plants".

Thanks for posting this, cf! I hope Josh has not washed his shirt and submits it for DNA testing!
