NEW YORK The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests

Look at the guys bio...he belongs to groups that DO NOT ALLOW WOMEN into them, he is an asshole.

Sent him an email, told him he is in the minority and that if ever the PinkCode women find him, he'd get dressed in Pink mighty damn fast...

Some people never recover from bootcamp brainwashing.

What a bunch of has-beens! I know I shouldn't be, but I'm shocked that so many former veterans can be so stupid.Were they serving kool-aid at the convention?

So why is Cadmus making such an ignorant comment? Does he not understand that Iraq and Saudi Arabia are two differnt countries? Does he not understand that not all Muslims are terrorists? Would he be frustrated if we, as Americans were constantly lumped with Mexicans or Canadians? Does he not remember that the terrorists that took down the Federal Building in Oklahoma were white males? Terrorists come in lots of different flavors. Does the American Legion support a president who has soldiers on the ground who do not have decent shoes much less armor? Does that not offend his honor as a soldier? It would me and it does me as an American. I am very offended that we have sent our military off to an illegal war and we can't even make sure they are protected. And all the while, the Halliburton people threw footballs of cash for fun and giggles. There is no honor in that.

He learned the wrong lessons from Vietnam. Cadmus seems to think that the leaders with the power over our military actually care about them,
and that if they decide to start a war it must necessarily be for the right reasons. I wonder what it would take to convince these people that the current administration and congress have betrayed our military? That's a tough one because part of that betrayal is forcing them to participate in an illegal war. But, if they hold the belief that when called they must go to war then they should not feel responsible for participation in an illegal action. Large numbers of Vietnam vets were courageous enough to admit they'd been had and even thsat they themselves had participated in war crimes. This kind of moral courage does not dwell in those with unquestioning allegiance to the powers directed by the military-industrial complex.

I have so much respect for the Viet Nam vets who have come out against this war. The vets have the greatest impact in this movement. Even more than Cindy Sheehan. They understand the burden one has too carry and are standing at the end of the long road waiting for these soldiers when they come home. Most of the returning soldiers know who honors them. They know who cares.

As I stated yesterday, Cadmus and all American Legion members that voted for "War on War-Protestors" have violated the "Patriot Act" and are "terrorists!"

They should be apprehended, prosecuted, and serve time in GITMO with the rest of the "terrorists!"

Is this the best Turd Blossom can arrange these days?--a threat to the media from the American Legion?! His powder must have gotten wet.
