  •  It was just suggested on West's Facebook page (6+ / 0-)

    and there were people who thought it was a grand idea! West's message was rather threatening and implied that he is now free to become a national leader.."you have not seen anything yet!"
    Oh goody....can't wait!

    •  Was the suggestion by a secret KOS troll? (6+ / 0-)

      That wouldn't surprise me a bit - let the hilarity begin!

      Just because West was in the service he's untouchable. They never mention or don't know or care about West's Article 32 hearing leading to Article 15 non-judicial punishment--just short of court martial.

      West resigned from the military in 2004, following an incident involving his unit’s treatment of an Iraqi man. West himself was charged with two violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, including one against assault, and agreed to retire after an Article 15 hearing in order to avoid a court martial.

      According to a 2004 account in The New York Times, West let the soldiers under his command beat the Iraqi man, whom West believed was involved in an attempt on his life. (No evidence was ever found implicating the man). Then, he staged a mock execution:

      Rich pay a bit more. DoD take a bit less. End war on Afghanistan sooner.

      "You ain't heard nothing yet" - what he actually posted there - was the catchphrase of Al Jolson, the "Jazz Singer", who frequently performed in blackface. I wonder if West is good with that.

      "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
