Here's Everything You Need To Know About Bowe Bergdahl, The U.S. Captive Returning Home

Here's Everything You Need To Know About Bowe Bergdahl, The U.S. Captive Returning Home

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 22:37:39 in Politics

“Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called Bergdahl's return "a powerful reminder of the enduring, sacred commitment our nation makes to all those who serve in uniform."

So many thoughts. Our "sacred commitment" has clearly been violated when it comes to our veterans. I guess he did use the present tense - "those who 'serve' in uniform." It reminds me of the "sacred commitment" that anti-choice politicians feel about fetuses...until they are born.

Of course, this is not a simple case of a POW. He was AWOL. Were there previous signs of mental illness?”

“"The rackets now no longer include strings."

“Yes, but Canadians wouldn't get too high-strung about that.
It's not like Purcell was an actual hockey player or anything...

Still, what would it take to replace the poles that look like badminton rackets with poles that look like hockey sticks? They could even just break off the top and tape a hockey stick to the stump, and it would be a fitting tribute to a man who repaired hockey sticks for kids.”

“Two points. The first is that selective outrage is hypocrisy. The second is the total lack of perspective when 4 American deaths are treated more seriously than 4500 dead American servicemen due to lies about WMDs and 13 diplomatic attacks during the last administration...not to mention no accountability for 9/11 or Katrina...”

thirdherdnerd on May 24, 2014 at 17:56:56

“When facts fail, regurgitate the Bush wars. As you move forward remember Hillary Clinton not only voted for, but vocally supported them. Plenty of blame to go around for 9/11 and the Katrina debacle has so many fathers that any attempt to tie it to any one person on either political side is just partisan propaganda.

Nothing Bush did gives any excuse to Obama. His actions are his alone.”
