Let us die to make men . . . muzzled?
Thomas Cadmus, National Commander of the American Legion, declaring at the Legion's national convention in Honolulu that his comrades in arms did not, in fact, die to make us free:
The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples . . .What "public protests"? Rallies? TV interviews? Letters to the Editor? Blogs?
Public protests against the war here at home while our young men and women are in harm's way on the other side of the globe only provide aid and comfort to our enemies.
This is just sad. Terribly sad.
