I guess they couldn’t pass the physical…

Gratuitous plug for Endless War by the Country Music Awards just a couple of minutes ago. Something about “Wounded Warrior” being always in their hearts. Yeah, right. It’s one thing for burnt out AlterKokkers like Ted Nugent and Merle Haggard getting up on stage and telling people that if they were only 50 years younger they’d go in the Army in a heartbeat and offering to have their bodyguards beat up anybody who questions their stupid shit.
When 20-somethings, under-40 somethings who haven’t pickled their feeble brains and could easily get in even if they have to take a waiver on the physical, moral or psychological parts, that’s just STUPID and they should realize that no amount of chanting “9-11! 9-11!” or similar WEAK-ASS bullshit will make people think they really did wish they could go.
John Wayne- “gee, I wish I could have gone over there and kicked Hitler’s Ass or Tojo’s Ass but couldn’t pass the physical
But the most highly decorated American of WW2, Audie Murphy, was too short not only for the draft but also for enlisting. Very famous case and all the John Wayne supporters who want to back up the lies of their big “brave hero” can look it up on their way to kissing my ass.
ChickenHawks of a feather do flock together. A partial list:

Mike Huckabee
Mitt Romney, Lame-ass excuse for sending other people to murder for him “Exempt from the draft due to Mormon missionary service which conveniently ended as soon as age knocked away the 1-A draft rating”.
But not exempt from actually enlisting. There ARE Mormons who actually did enlist including chaplains. Wouldn’t have chaplains without a need for chaplains, like, other Mormons forming a congregation, right?
Every one of Mitt Romney’s worthless sons. Their excuse: “we have more important stuff to do like making sure our Chickenshit ChickenHawk dad gets elected president”
When the CS. CH. Daddy lost early in the primaries, of course his Big, Healthy, Brave Sons went straight to the Recruiters office… yeah, right, and enlisted right alongside John Wayne and Ronald Reagan.

Ted Nugent, what a wiener err “winner”, did a magazine interview later where he boasted that he had, prior to the physical examination, shit his pants then didn’t change or bathe for a month in order to convince the doctors that he was crazy. For some reason, it worked.
Now he threatens to beat up or machine gun anybody who dares to mention that he supports war, supports baby killing, just as long as he doesn’t have to take the risks.

George Bush, “Scooter” Libby, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowicz, Richard Cheney, Liz Cheney, Jenna-and-Barbara Bush, Jeb Bush, Rush “I had a pimple in my ass” Limbaugh, Bill “I had a back problem” (a yellowish rash on his spine)O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Todd Palin, and now, the Cast and Crew of the CMA awards.

ChickenHawks on Parade.

Look, if you’re going to take a stand against joining the military, Take a God-Damned REAL Stand. Peter Coyote took a stand where he went to Federal Prison, endured beatings by the Draft Dodging Prison Guards, because he would have been ordered to kill not Hitler, not Mussolini or Tojo, but some other poor sap who was ALSO drafted and ordered to shoot at him.

Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, often maligned by the Right Wing ChickenHawks for being “Commies” could easily have dodged the draft based on somebody saying they were Communists. They didn’t.

According to Joe McCarthy, the darling of the ChickenHawk Brigade like Beck and Limbaugh, the Army during WW2 was chock full of card-carrying Communists and members of some very large, loud and proud Socialist parties.

Kind of takes the edge off Beck and Limbaugh and, now, Sarah Palin’s rants that Communists and Socialists are somehow cowards.

Get it straight, asshats. Those of us outside the Political Establishment who resist participation in Baby-Killing Wars (which by default is: ALL Wars) do so at great risk to our own safety, health and lives, standing up against a murderous lot who boast, correctly, that they are the Mightiest Army the world has ever seen.

I guess Compliance is Courage and Defiance is Cowardice.

At least according to the ChickenHawks.
