As some readers may have noted, I am currently in Mosul, Iraq, due to come home within the next few months. I felt the need to write this, to express my disgust and sadness over the anti-war protest that took place in Cambridge on the Army's birthday.
I guess I have no problem with people expresing their opinion, at least their in a nation that allows it to take place. But to boo and his as the 11 year old, son of a Medal of Honor winner leads the pledge of Alligence? Christ, where's the compassion and respect? I had thought that Cambridge was an island of the intelligencia, that liberals were all about compassion, wrong assertion there!
I applaud my brothers in blue of the Cambridge (and probably SP) police for exercising REMARKABLY RESTRAINT. I would have had a very difficult time with this little exercise.
A final small rave to Ms Vennochi of the Boston Globe; I applaud your son's consideration of the military even though know the kid dosen't have a chance in hell of following through with you as a parent. Remember one thing, he'll be 18 and able to chose with out mommy someday soon!!
