Always like it when a plan comes together at the expense of others.
Bleak Homecoming For Some GIs Back From Iraq
For those reservists and National Guard members who have returned home to the U.S., USA Today reports that those who have "been reassigned, lost benefits or been fired from civilian jobs after returning from duty has increased by about 30 percent since 2002."
The increase "reflects the extensive use of part-time troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, the largest call-up of reserves since the 1950-53 Korean War," writes the paper. Lt. Col. Marc Garcia, who has been deployed twice since Sept. 11, 2001 � to Afghanistan and in the U.S. � told the paper that "After the 1991 Gulf War, 'I was welcomed home with ticker tape. This time, I get the door slammed in my face.'"
We had an actual army in 1991. Clinton pretty much disbanded the US army and navy in his 8 years. So now we've got part-time troops. That was Clinton's gift to an imbecilic American public. Bush's gift is that he went to war without first rebuilding the military.
In the 1950's, Eisenhower pretty much decimated the US military (although unlike Clinton he did not feminize and homosexualize it); but Kennedy (John, not the drunken sot Teddy) had the brains to rebuild, restock and repack the entire military before he got us involved in the Vietnam War.
That's right, Elizabeth, it WAS Kennedy who got us actively involved in Vietnam, not Johnson.
You are a real piece of work. I'll bet you will find some way to blame Mr. Bush for this years snow and ice storms.
Read the article you posted (again someone elses thoughts and words), and you will find it is someone at home slamming the door. Maybe those "geniuses" just elected to go to Washington can fix the Veterans Reemployment Rights Act. I hope you understand the President is not a king. He cannot change that law by fiat.
