OK Guys, The War is Getting To me Now.
Advertisements [?]
Hey Guys,

As I was scanning across the boards tonight, I read a post that said "Every time I see a number, I cry." or something to that effect. I further analyzed this sentence and it disturbed me that every troop killed is merely a number. A group of lines to represent a mass of bodies.

Truly morale crushing to anyone serving, and that realizes the war is WRONG! The number is growing,my friends, within the ranks of the military who are becoming aware of the atrocities the ape shit president is implying on our troops abroad. A lot of us hate this war just as much as you do, but we are limited to being discreet on message boards and private conversations due to fears of prosecution of charges that are carried with speaking out against the agenda.

People, I despise this administration, I despise the war, and I despise the world over all. The military has given me a cynical way of thinking. I do support the troops, because I am one, but I am doing everything in my power to educate the ranks in my own command about what is going on. It is working, and the higher ups are not happy.

Because of my vociferous approach I am going to Captain's Mast. For those of you not familiar with military justice, it's like going into court, and pleading guilty and going straight to jail. Don't feel sorry for me though. I have been martyred for the cause, and people are beginning to read my works agains the administration. I fight every day for the liberal cause, and nothing, NOTHING will keep my intellectual progress down!
