    I thought that Veteran's Day was a time to remember and honor all Veteran's, regardless of their political beliefs. The IVAW members are still Veterans, just as the members of the American Legion and VFW are. The way I see it, if you truly want to honor the Veterans, you include all Veterans, not just the ones who are in favor of this particular fiasco.

      Those who don't support Bush's Eternal War are "phony soldiers." Serving in the military doesn't make you a veteran, and having a 4F because of an easily removed cyst on your ass doesn't make you unfit to judge other people's patriotism. /snark.
