BTW, you're snide remark about "if you were a vet" is just sophistry. You people don't realize how stupid you sound when you say things like that. Using your logic, we need to accede to every request by any member of a minority group, since we can't dismiss any of his complaints, right? I mean, unless you are a minority you have no say-so.

...You people...

Ahah!!!!! Busted, you ignorant ass. I knew you didn't know your butt from a hole in the dirt, judging by your comments on this article. It's was obvious that you not only have never served in the military (and therefore have others to thank for the freedom to flap your lips and embarass yourself), but that you also didn't bother to read the article.

Your arrogance is only superceded by your ignorance.

...'if you were a vet' is NOT sophistry, and it is not a fallacy to assume that you don't get the point of this article. There is, however, something seriously flawed in YOUR logic of equating this to 'minority' anything.

The article is pointing out the flaws of the previous administration, the incredible ignorance of the media, and the implacable resolve of GWB to prosecute the 'evil doers' to the last cave in Afghanistan or the last bunker in Iraq.

David Christian was on FOX today (he is the military advisor to John Kerry, D-MA). He was quite critical of the Clinton administration and very complimentary of the Bush administration. But his major point was that soldiers - of any rank in any service - will double their efforts to ELIMINATE the enemy that killed these men.

Bob Bevilaqua was even more pointed. 'The Special Forces will get their heads on a platter - and won't care how they do it'. Both of THESE men have been there, done that.

They also said to expect casualties, but that military personnel now knew they had support at the WH and Pentagon and that gave them resolve to finish the job. Sounds 'logical' to me.
