Fox Guest Suggests Cost-Cutting Benefit To Having Captured Soldier Executed By Taliban (VIDEO)

Hey, everybody! There's a war on! And when there's a war on, it is the responsibility of every perfumed and pancake-makeup padded pundit to puff themselves up with every ounce of fake bellicosity they can muster from the safety of their news studios. And so that's why we have retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters suggesting before all the facts are known, that maybe the Taliban should do us a solid by killing the captured Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl. At least someone has the guts to be this pointless!

PETERS: I want to be clear. If, when the facts are in, we find out that through some convoluted chain of events, he really was captured by the Taliban, I'm with him. But, if he walked away from his post and his buddies in wartime, I don't care how hard it sounds, as far as I'm concerned, the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.


Yes, apparently the punishment for alleged desertion is execution at the hands of the Taliban. Cheers to Peters for the heroic way he pretends to have a personal stake in this matter. Truly an inspiration to us all.

I wonder what it is like to be a member of Bergdahl's family, at this moment. I'm guessing this segment really helped them put things in perspective.
