And for nobody more so than the soldier...

You want to talk about screwed?

- The Liberals won't support you because they (correctly) hate your Commander in Chief for being a stupid war-monger who sends soldiers to die for reasons that are manifestly false.

- If you dare to tell the truth, act on your conscience, and refuse unconstitutional orders as required by the uniform code of military justice, the Conservatives will withdraw their support and hate you. And you'll probably wind up in jail.

- If you do nothing, then you stand a good chance of getting blown up by an IED (can you believe that nearly 20,000 wounded number??), or else stop-lossed and forced to serve again until you do get blown up.

So this is the way we treat the people who are willing to lay down their lives for our country? Who will willingly die so that the rest of us can sit here, fat dumb and happy, with our reality TV and our SUVs?

I do not like the country I live in. I do not like it one fucking bit. I think, in fact, that I would like to personally kill most of its inhabitants.

Two years, six months remain.

You wanna know what makes it even better?

No matter who takes over, they'll have to continue the perpetual war, because the Merkin Sheeple are so fucking bloodthirsty (as long as they're not *personally* involved, anyway) and have swallowed all the bullshit about how we're all in imminent danger of being overtaken by swarms of terrorists ANY SECOND NOW unless we destroy the foundations of the country. If Bushypants' successor suggests that maybe we rethink the whole TWAT, they'll be castigated as a traitor.

It'd be funny if it wasn't so fucking scary.

Relax. It's only two more years until Hillary takes her rightful place on the throne, then everything will be all sunshine and rainbows again.
