DOES THIS SEEM LIKE A CRUEL IRONY?


[+] serious ballot by cranky

This soldier's death is, somehow, worse.

May 14, 2007

Josh Marshall has the story of the death, announced today, of Andrew J. Bacevich of wounds suffered as the result of an IED explosion in Iraq. He was the son of retired Army Colonel, military thinker, and Boston University professor of the same name.

The senior Andrew Basevich is a conservative, but one of the few conservatives who has opposed the Iraq war from the outset. He wrote a book title The New American Militarism: How Americans are Seduced by War.

Also, he wrote an op/ed piece last year in the Washington Post, quoted by Steve Clemons, in which he said:

Who bears responsibility for these Iraqi deaths? The young soldiers pulling the triggers? The commanders who establish rules of engagement that privilege "force protection" over any obligation to protect innocent life? The intellectually bankrupt policymakers who sent U.S. forces into Iraq in the first place and now see no choice but to press on? The culture that, to put it mildly, has sought neither to understand nor to empathize with people in the Arab or Islamic worlds?

It's a losing proposition to play off the importance or the tragedy of the death of one soldier against another, or of a soldier against the Iraqi civilians of whom Professor Basevich was writing in the Post. And it's wrong to visit the sins of the father on the sons, or the daughters. But the image of the Bush twins partying in Paraguay or at Fashion Week here in New York while Professor Basevich is burying his son and namesake seems to me unspeakably unjust. (DailyKOS)

Does that seem like a cruel irony? For the patriotic son of a conservative military man, who was smart enough to realize that Iraq was a sham, to be killed serving in Iraq, while the daughters of the warmongering idiot-in-chief party and whore their way across the globe, without a care for country or duty?

Yes
No

^ i know. stupid slack-ass whores. look at the gape on that drunken cunt jenna -- looks like she's hosted the entire u.s marine corp in that nasty snatch. ugly bitches.
Well the one in greens knees are really fucked up from something
^ Lol, that's a sling around her hips and groin, to prevent her giblets falling out.
the two sluts are walking like that because they have the smuggled oil hidden in their skanky vaginas -- each one is carrying about 10 barrels of stolen oil up there. that's the only reason why their drunken, coke snorting father would send them -- to get the oil.


"lookey here! don't you two bitches come back empty handed, ya' hear! i expect each of you to smuggel out as many barrels of oil as you can fit into thos gaping gashes between your boney legs. now scoot and make papa pround! ignorant sluts."


^ w. is such a good father.

How cute, the girls are scavaging their daddy's spoils!
