  •  ahh. now i get it. (none)
    Sgt. Joe Roche is a good-guy who wrote (and writes well) and actually gets things done for real soldiers (unlike their CINC)

    ltn72 is a troll who like many trolls systematically reprints Roches articles in various blogs without properly crediting the reprint, without full disclosure or even captioned/sourced photographs.

    Original story posted here:
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/op-ed/20050825-090528-8396r.htm

    Please note Joe Roche DID NOT write this statement:
    By ignoring the whole story, you discredit your argument. And let me tell you from personal experience -- there is no such thing as 'supporting our troops but opposing what they do.' That's sophist bullshit.

    All in order to make the reader believe the post is by a real soldier. Nice try you chicken-hawk shitbag.

      No, Roche did not write that. I did. As for your delightful-if-revealing invective "chicken hawk shitbag," I volunteered for and completed two tours in Vietnam. What's your military background? Hateful language directed at a political opponent simply destroys one's argument.

      •  if you actually read my comment... (none)
        ... you would know the following:

        A. It became obvious to me that SOME of what you posted was your and MOST was Roche's. My problem with you is that you failed to make sufficient distinction between the two. I believe you did so in order to deceive the readers. You continue to obfuscate so I have yet to be convinced of anything you've written.

        B. I posted my name, rank, unit and service period. You have not, why don't you do the same so that I can run it by my buddy in PERSCOM so that we can see what's in your DD214?

        BTW. Got kids? If so, they in Iraq? If not, the chickenhawk appelation remains.
