Supporting the Troops

Last week, the Supreme Court denied the appeal of 17 former Gulf War POW's who had sued Iraq because they were tortured when held there as prisoners in 1991. The Bush administration argued that the new Iraqi regime (i.e., the US government) isn't liable for Saddam's crimes.

They got screwed by Bush Sr. by being sent to fight the first criminal Gulf War; then they got screwed by long-time US ally Saddam; and finally they got screwed by Bush Jr.

Oh well. I believe it's part of boot camp for trainee soldiers to respond to the drill sergeants, "Thank you sir! May I have another?" They're trained to take crap because they're going to be fed so much of it.
