Trying to dredge up anything negative to smear the military, ain't they?

This one incident, and all of a sudden it's a big problem.

Let's see... the war had not even begun, and Army officers were killed by a grenade rolled into their command tent. Wasn't that "fragging"?!?!? Why not a story about how fragging was raising it's ugly head when that happened?

Guess it isn't "fragging" when a muslim does it (on either side).

Also, "fragging" was not a "problem" in Vietnam, and never was. It happened very, very infrequently, and usually by forces from our so-called allies (like the Koreans fragging American PX's), when it did occur. However, the scum in the media made sure it was blown out of proportion to what was actually happening, because it served their purpose to slime the military, and the great kids serving in it!

And... soldiers killing their fellow soldiers, and using the convenience of battle to cover and disguise the act, has happened in every conflict since the days of cave men. It's is not an indication of a trend. Nor, is it a reflection on the men and women serving!!!

I think any moral, clear thinking, patriotic person who claims democRATic affiliation needs to seriously reconsider their party affiliation. Considering the way that this current crew of democRATS has decided that denigrating the military would be the best road back into power.

The democRATS are absolutely shamefull, and the media needs to shut up! http://alamak.com.sg/i/Shutup.gif
