    maybe "All In (some strange pussy)" Petraeus will get disability from carting all that crap around on his uniform.

      Not liking what the military does doesn't mean you should dissrespect those in the military.  I didn't support the war in either IRAQ or Afghanistan, but I don't slander our troops or their Generals.  Real adults in real positions of authority have to do what their higher up say.  In the military this includes everyone from privates to generals.  You're only pretending to be a progressive if you can't recognize the accomplishments and integrity of others.

      •  no, I have no respect for that pussy hound (9+ / 0-)

        he had no respect for his office either, so I guess the respect thing is kind of bullshit. Next question?

        don't go around wearing fruit salad bragging about their exploits. How about some explaining about about all those bogus ribbons and medals?

        "Disrespecting" those in the military? You mean generals like Petraeus? Who lives like a little lord Fauntleroy like all the other general officers, http://www.salon.com/... and http://www.washingtonpost.com/... with every kind of privilege and "prestige" completely unwarranted by any proof of military (as in actual effective warfighting, as opposed to Playing the Pentagon Game and self-promotion) skill? Go google "Petraeus surge" and add "Tillman" and see what you get. Stuff like this: http://www.emptywheel.net/...

        There are reasons why people started rendering his name "Betray-us," as a busy member of the military elite that's eating us ordinary people out of house and home. "Reesect" these people who have created and are busily fertilizing a Beast that can't even "win" a war, when they gin one up? Who can't even win fucking rigged war games? http://fabiusmaximus.com/... "Reespect" these people, whose function is mostly to strip the nation of wealth and turn it into idiotic Cold War military hardware, picking stupid fights all over the planet, linking arms with the CIA (when it suits) to oppress people all over the place including here at home?

        What are we, a bunch of acolytes who are supposed to kiss the ring and robes of these fucking high priests of Brobdingnagian incompetent bureaucracy and the bleeding heart of the military-industrial leech that is suckiing our life out? Respect, my ass. No more respect is due them than was due Westmoreland and the other weasels who fucked the country over during "my" little $4 trillion war.
