Travesty

>> Monday, May 19, 2008

Just finished reading an article in the San Francisco Chronicle regarding sending troops who have left the military back to Iraq.

It's a travesty what we're doing to these men and women. Just as the author mentions, he was working on building himself a life in the San Francisco area until he surreptitiously received his reactivation letter.

Some of our political leaders (such as Bush) believe in talking tough so that we can intimidate our other enemies as if we could go to war in an instant again. With what army? Seriously. With WHAT army?

The author, Colby Buzzell, notes that "the Army was kind enough to send me an invitation to go back to Operation Iraqi Freedom." I always found it interesting that they decided to use "freedom" in that operation name rather than "liberation," which spells O.I.L.
