American Legion Declares War on Protestors -- Media Next?

As a Vietname era vet I say: Blow me. Not a dime of mine will they receive.

American Legion Declares War on Protestors -- Media Next?: "
'The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples,' Thomas Cadmus, national commander, told delegates at the group's national convention in Honolulu.

The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary to 'ensure the united backing of the American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism.'

In his speech, Cadmus declared: 'It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect would be used against their successors today as they battle terrorists bent on our destruction.”

He explained, 'No one respects the right to protest more than one who has fought for it, but we hope that Americans will present their views in correspondence to their elected officials rather than by public media events guaranteed to be picked up and used as tools of encouragement by our enemies.' This might suggest to some, however, that American freedoms are worth dying for but not exercising.
"

Bite me. Freedom does not include destroying a sovereign country, setting back women's rights by generations and then keeping quiet about it because we don't want to upset the natives.
