Conservative warmongers are upset with negative reviews by liberals of the movie Lone Survivor.
For a sample, see National Review Online. I am upset as well. Why are liberals calling Navy Seals heroes who had no business fighting a senseless and unjust war?
Jake Tapper, the host of CNN’s “The Lead,” recently interviewed former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell about Lone Survivor. This comment on the interview has got to be the dumbest comment ever made about the war in Afghanistan in the history of the universe: “They didn’t die for nothing .. they died fighting the A-HOLES who killed 3000+ on 9-11 !!”
Two observations: 1. All the a-holes who killed 3,000 on 9-11 died on 9-11. 2. Not a single Afghan killed by U.S. troops had anything to do with 9-11.
