You've probably heard of the phony controversy of Rush Limbaugh's "phony soldiers" comment in which he was talking about people falsely pretending to be soldiers to speak against the war, i.e., not real soldiers but phony ones. Some reason, anti-war vets like Jon Soltz (last seen shouting down a man in uniform speaking in favor of his mission) assumed Rush was talking about him, which is somewhat psychologically revealing. It's like how no one actually questions John Kerry's patriotism but he kept assuming everyone was.
Anyway, I find it interesting that with there being millions of men and women in both active and reserves, liberals still feel the need to use made up soldiers like Jesse Macbeth to find enough vets to speak out against the Iraq war. I think that's because most real Americans don't want to have anything to do with the Kwazy Kos Krowd. Also, with all their blatant disdain for the troops, it seems you'd have to be a bit self-loathing to be both in the military and associated with those freaks.
