IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE MESSENGER

Harry Esteve of The Oregonian relates comments made by the Governor of Oregon:

Conduct of Iraq war troubles Kulongoski …the governor laments that the conflict's burden is being carried by a "small group"”

“The heavy human toll of the war in Iraq hasn't hit home to most Americans because it is "being borne by a very, very small group," said Gov. Ted Kulongoski, who has attended more than 50 funerals of slain service members.”

“"You know what's wrong with this? When this country goes to war, all of us -- each and every one of us -- should be part of the sacrifice," Kulongoski said, bringing up food rationing and scrimping materials during World War II. "This is not a war of shared sacrifice."”

Interesting. When Joel Stein opined in “Warriors and Wusses”

“The real purpose of those ribbons is to ease some of the guilt we feel for voting to send them to war and then making absolutely no sacrifices other than enduring two Wolf Blitzer shows a day.”

He was trashed by every neoconservative agitator from Michelle Malkin on down.

We’ll see if they have similar venom for the Governor…

Bring back the draft. We’ll need it when we invade Iran…

Bring back the draft. Then we’ll see what America really thinks of these mad foreign adventures…
