A Marine Who's A Mom Talks back to Moronic War Supporters
It you haven’t been shot at in that f__king hell hole, SHUT THE F__K UP!
How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are “Supporting our Troops” and waving the flag and all that happy horse sh_t? I’ll tell you why. I’m a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand me a letter and tell me my husband died in that f__king festering sand-pit. He should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he’s coming home in a box.
You f__kers and that god-damn lying sack of sh_t they call a president are the reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad.

This woman probably better not identify herself or she will be a target for attack by the right-wing talk radio. Why? Because she used bad language! Since she is still a Marine she isn't officially supposed to say bad things to the media, I think there is some kind of order about that (there is a reason that only retired generals speak out strongly against the war and the Commander in Chief). But really, read the whole thing (link).
Maybe this Marine mom will be the fun new target for people who feel that they can attack Cindy Sheehan because she is just a mom of a dead solider and didn't serve herself ("But, but, Casey chose to go! She is dishonoring his memory!").
Considering how strong this Marine, wife and mother's language is, maybe she won't be able to talk on commercially-supported broadcast radio, where we have decades old, agreed upon rules that limit what people can say. Does that limit their ability to attack her? No. But it does limit her ability to swear at the obscenity of this war from a position of real authority.
The next time I hear some pearl clutchers bitching about what dirty mouths the bloggers have, as compared to the "polite" talk radio hosts who joke about the death of millions, I'll send them this letter. I don't always redact swear words, but I did so here for effect. This is a case where I want people to see the context, and if they choose, read the rest.
BTW, even if the radio hosts DO say swear words, they have a seven second delay to catch it. But I ask you, which is more obscene, what happened to this woman or the people who will attack her for calling out the moronic war supporters?
