18,000 was the number when I deployed to Iraq last time. The story was buried in the news, of course and I never followed up more on it.
Not only was it ignored, I heard that some of the signers were attacked both ‘professionally’ and by “green” zealots (who probably arrived in posh SUVs and lead by “community” organizers in limos).
My degree is Industrial Engineering and I remember trying to debate the greenie zombies (usually English Lit and ‘Journalism’ majors) in the 1990s. This was while I was in college. Their argument when confronted by the lack of data integrity and Scientific Method employed by the green theocracy was that since I was an engineer, how could I possibly know science... yet they were ‘experts’.
It is difficult to argue when every insane word from your leftist opponent leaves your jaw on the ground. It is more difficult to argue with an insane, leftist zealot prone to violent acts and verbal attacks. At least the Islamic insane zealots I get to deal with now actually do not hold back and attack... while hiding behind women and children.

I usually do not have that problem with these drones because I am 6’ 1” 270 and powerfully built. They always back down and are wise for doing so.
