Now, here's some good news......
We stand with Mr. Soltz, and why not?
He was a soldier and knows a little something about leading and following.
He is a human being that is familiar with the truth and he is an American, one of the few, who takes his oath, to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, seriously.
That is the only kind of person I want in the fox-hole or in a battle with me.
Veterans Group Speaks Out on War - washingtonpost.com:
When Iraq war veteran Jon Soltz accused Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) of 'aiding the enemy,' the Democratic senators gathered around him yesterday did not wince. Nor did Democrats object when Soltz, the chairman of a group called VoteVets.org., called President Bush and Vice President Cheney 'draft dodgers.'
In the United States Congress, where decorum usually holds sway, Soltz and his small band of veterans are saying things many Democrats would like to express but can't. And as the politics heat up over the Iraq war, Democratic leaders increasingly are being drawn to Soltz and his angry soldiers.
