Daily Kos on Chickenhawks
Or, put another way, >>>Yawn<<<

Soooo old. This kind of thinking ignores the fact that majority of the military supports the war effort. At the polls, anyway.

And how about this: I'm for the police fighting crime, but I'm not enlisting in the police academy. Ditto for firefighting. That doesn't make me a hypocrite, or mean that the police should stop doing their jobs.

I support cheerleaders leading cheers. I am also all in favor of oceanographers studying fish.
 
Now, I hate Daily Kos as much as the next guy. Actually, in this town the next guy is probably a liberal, so I'm likely to hate Kos much more than the next guy. He makes his point in an infantile potty-mouthed way, but part of what he says may be reasonable. He seems to make two points. (1) That those who support the war should enlist. This is ludicrous and Ralphie has already made the argument against it well. (2) That those who support the war should publicly encourage their followers to enlist. That seems a legitimate point. Kos specifically mentions Jerry Falwell. I don’t know whether or not he has encouraged enlistment, and a couple of minutes of looking through his website didn't answer that question. This is all the more important now since enlistment has fallen below goals and soldiers are having their tours of duty extended. Because I support the war, I would not at all discourage my son if he wanted to join the military when he was old enough. I would expect pro-war opinion leaders to do the same and to try to convince the public that enlistment is a noble expression of their patriotism.

I still hate Kos.

By researching and documenting Markos Alberto Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA's background in the CIA and the Salvadoran oligarchy, the Truth About Kos blog is providing progressives with the tools to fight back against Markos Alberto Moulitsas ZÚÑIGA (MAMZ).

Those who don't know about MAMZ's CIA history and his fabulously wealthy right-wing oligarchy family in El Salvador should definitely read this series of reports, based on Salvadoran and US Government documents, Salvadoran corporate websites and Markos' own words. It's The Truth About Kos blog.

Read about his family members' participation in a group (ANEP) connected to Salvadoran death squads, their offices in Odessa, Texas of all places (Bush was born there), their pollution of grey whale spawning grounds off the coast of Baja Mexico, and their pollution of El Salvador's endangered Jaltepeque Estuary, where they maintain a fabulously posh five-star hotel, private club and condominium conglomerate. Why didn't MAMZ tell us about any of this before?

And why did MAMZ spend six months training with the CIA in 2001?
