Translation: "Support the troops" means "Steal their enlistment bonuses"

The Democratic Activist
Another excellent example of just how devotedly the Bush administration and their neoconservative backers really do "support the troops:"


Wounded Soldier: Military Wants Part Of Bonus Back

Wounded soldiers ordered to repay signing bonus

Pentagon Bends (But Does Doesn’t Reverse) Policy That Withholds Bonuses From Wounded Vets


Isn't this typical?

Apparently, "We conservatives support the troops, and you liberals don't" now actually means "we conservatives are going to break enlistment commitments made to wounded soldiers and try to steal the sign-up bonus we promised them."


Thank you.

Pass it on.

  1. Yes, unbelievable. I wonder why I still feel stunned by news like this when we've had a steady diet of it since 2000(at least)?

    Each morning when I turn on my computer and find out what happened while I was alsleep, Dorothy Parker's famous line, "What fresh hell is this?" runs like a banner across my brain.
