IN CALIFORNIA ON MONDAY, U.S. SENATOR JOHN KERRY SPOKE TO STUDENTS AND SAID THE FOLLOWING, "YOU KNOW EDUCATION, IF YOU MAKE THE MOST OF IT, YOU STUDY HARD, YOU DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND YOU MAKE AN EFFORT TO BE SMART, YOU CAN DO WELL. IF YOU DON'T, YOU GET STUCK IN IRAQ."
THOUGH IT'S NOT SURPRISING THAT WHITE HOUSE SNOW JOB TONY SNOW IMEDIATELY STARTED SPUTTERING NONSENSE, IT IS SHOCKING HOW MANY IDIOTS ON THE SUPPOSED LEFT WENT INTO PANIC-MODE.
TAKE THE WOULD-BE-LEE-GRANT-LOOK-ALIKE (IF LEE GRANT WENT TO SUPERCUTS) TAYLOR MARSH WHO, WRITING AT THE HUFFINGTON POST, STATED: "KERRY SHOULD JUST ADMIT HE SCREWED UP HIS STATEMENT. IT MAY BE UGLY, BUT IT'S THE TRUTH."
QUEEN OF THE SURRENDERS AND ALWAYS TO BE FOUND AMONG THE FAUX LEFT, TAYLOR MARSH GLORIFIES IN THE ABSENCE OF FACT CHECKERS AT THE HUFFINGTON POST.
FOR TAYLOR MARSH AND ALL THE OTHER FAUX LEFT IDIOTS, KERRY IS 100% CORRECT.
PRESUMABLY, JOHN KERRY READS THE BOSTON GLOBE. THERE'S NO INDICATION THAT THE FAUX LEFT READS ANYTHING OR EVEN KNOWS HOW TO READ.
CHARLIE SAVAGE REPORTED IN THE BOSTON GLOBE NOVEMBER 29, 2004:
STUDENTS FROM MCDOOUGH ARE AS MUCH AS SIX TIMES MORE LIKELY THAN THOSE FROM MCLEAN TO JOIN THE MILITARY, A DISPARITY THAT IS REPLICATED ELSEWHERE. A SURVEY OF THE MILITARY'S RECRUITMENT SYSTEM FOUND THAT THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT ZEROES IN ON SCHOOLS WHERE STUDENTS ARE PERCEIVED TO BE MORE LIKELY TO JOIN UP, WHILE MAKING FAR LESS EFFORT AT SCHOOLS WHERE STUDENTS ARE STEERED TOWARD COLLEGE.
TAYLOR MARSH SHOULD JUST ADMIT THAT, LIKE CAPTAIN LEWIS IN PRIVATE BENJAMIN, SHE SHOULDN'T BE SO QUICK TO WAIVE THE WHITE FLAG.
THE FAUX LEFT, DESTROYING AMERICA AND INTELLIGENCE 1 TOPIC AT A TIME.
JOHN KERRY SHOULD SHOW TONY SNOW, TAYLOR MARSH AND THE WHITE HOUSE THE MIDDLE FINGER AND NOT BACK DOWN. HE IS RIGHT.
War resister Kyle Snyder self-checked out of the US military in April 2005 and moved to Canada where he remained until last Saturday. Today, Brett Barrouqere (AP) reports is the day that Kyle Snyder will turn himself at Fort Knox. While serving in Iraq, Synder saw many actions go uninvestigated, he saw his girlfriend's pregnancy turn to tragedy -- "The military took my child," Snyder told Karen Button in an interview. He saw Iraqis died who shouldn't have, he saw Iraqi women brought on to bases as prostitutes. What he didn't see was reconstruction going on. As Courage to Resist notes Snyder saying, "The only reconstruction I saw was building Army bases."
In Canada, Synder attempted to be granted asylum. During the Vietnam era, the Canadian government had done that. However, the government has so far refused to offer refugee status. Jeremy Hinzman and Brandon Hughey are appealing decisions right now. Hinzman has been attempting to be granted refugee status since January 2004. At end of last month, war resister Darrell Anderson returned to the United States from Canada. Snyder, Hinzman, Anderson, Hughey, Camilo Mejia, Pablo Paredes, Carl Webb, Ehren Watada, Stephen Funk, Patrick Hart, Corey Glass, Ricky Clousing, Mark Wilkerson, Clifford Cornell, Katherine Jashinski, Agustin Aguayo, Ivan Brobeck, Joshua Key, Joshua Despain, Kevin Benderman, are among those making up the growing movement of war resistance within the military. Last Friday, Different Drummer in Watertown, NY became the first G.I. coffeehouse of this war. David Zeiger's documentary Sir! No Sir! charts the resistance within the military during the Vietnam era. More information on war resisters can be found at Courage to Resist and at War Resisters Support Campaign.

In the United States, Bully Boy continues to attempt to elude consequences for his illegal war while others aren't as fortunate. The AFP reports that there are now 150,000 US troops in Iraq "the largest number reported this year" and the numbers are also "the highest levels since December 2005 when US commanders built up US troop levels for the Iraqi elections." In another report, the AFP attempted to get a response on the increase in US troop numbers from the Pentagon press secretary Eric Ruff. Ruff: "This is news to me. Talk to MNF-I (Multi-National Forces -Iraq). That's General Casey's decision." Again, the Pentagon's press secretary responds, when asked about the fact that the number of US troops has increased in Iraq, "This is news to me."
That head-up-the-ass moment is rivaled only by last week when Bully Boy, attempting to convince the American people that he's hands-on and following the war, stated "we've lost 93 service members in Iraq" when that day (Wednesday) the count was 91 and would remain 91 until the US military announced more fatalities on Thursday.In both cases, Ruff's and Bully Boy's, it's their job to know the numbers.

And Kyle Snyder has now turned himself in at Fort Knox. Prior to that, he held a news conference in Lousiville (at a Presbyterian church) and, Dylan T. Lovan (AP) reports, stated: "I don't see a lot of positive things coming from this war. I see it as a counterproductive mission." Lovan also reports that, according to his attorney James Fennerty, Kyle Snyder "will receive an other-than-honorable discharge. That would be the same punishment received by . . . Darrell Anderson".
