Have I written even one word demonizing, abusing, vilifying or smearing Ms. Sheehan? No. You are quick to try to deflect my point by responding with a baseless attack, but your lack of foundation is glaring.
As for "posing and prancing", I have done neither, but I am a former Marine, have fought for this country, and would have felt embarrassment from the grave had my mother acted as Ms. Sheehan if I had been KIA. Yes, my mom was sad and scared when I left for Desert Storm, but I knew what I was getting into when I volunteered (it is a VOLUNTEER military, therefore we can't consider our military men "victims" for being called to do what is the very nature of their chosen career), and had my mother acted as we see Ms. Sheehan, I would have considered it a slap in the face. Clearly, you can not understand. I'm sure that, again, instead of trying to understand, you will simply attack me again in some baseless fashion. Have at it - it's all you've got.
