- Deserts their military obligation and flees to Canada? Or refuses to serve?
- Sues the military?
- Asks "tough" questions of the Secretary of Defense?
- Takes pictures that show our military in a negative light?
- Or is in any way critical of anything and everything the military does; predicting imminent disaster and doom? Or even says the military has "lost" in Iraq?
Those who serve honorably, bravely, and without complaint are invisible to an indifferent mainstream media; who--believing that opposition to the military is a moral imperative-- make sure you will never encounter the names or hear the everyday heroic stories of the overwhelming majority of our incredible military men and women? Go figure.
UPDATE: This pattern applies, apparently, even if the "tough questions" are completely staged. And, the Watcher links to a story about a soldier who became known for his anti-Bush, anti-Iraq rhetoric--except that it was all a lie. I'm sure that heroic and principled individual will go into politics.
