An Iraq War vet says it bluntly to those who mindlessly say "Stand with the president"

From Salon:

"The only way I know how to support the troops is by going over there...All the chicken hawks back here who said, 'Oh, Iraq is talking bad about us. They're going to threaten us' -- look, if you really believe that, you leave your wife and three kids and go sign up for the Army or Marines and go over there and fight. Otherwise, shut your mouth."

Now, as I've said previously, chickenhawks do have the right to speak however they want.

But they shouldn't expect any credibility from the rest of us, let alone an attentive ear.

HT: Atrios.
