What Republicans Really Mean By Supporting the Troops

Here’s what Loathsome bastard Lt. Col. Ralph Peters had to say about captured soldier Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl:

BergdahlHe is an apparent deserter. Reports are indeed that he abandoned his buddies, abandoned his post, and walked off. We’ll see what the ultimate truth of it is, but if he did … he’s a deserter at wartime ….

On that video, he is collaborating with the enemy. Under duress or not – that’s really not relevant – he’s making accusations about the behavior of the military in Afghanistan that are unfounded, saying that there are no rules, he’s lying about how he was captured, saying he lagged behind the patrol. … So we know that this private is a liar. We’re not sure if he’s a deserter. But the media needs to hit the pause button, and not portray this guy as a hero. … He’s making anti-American statements, I mean, he wants to investigate Islam, blah blah blah. …

If he walked away from his post and his buddies at wartime … I don’t care how hard it sounds, as far as I’m concerned, the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.

Radio Free Roderick, Redux

I’m going to be interviewed on Chicago’s Little Alex in Wonderland radio show this coming Thursday at 4:00 Central; we’ll probably be talking about agorism. (I was interviewed last week on James Hines’ New Orleans Saint and Fools radio show, but it doesn’t seem to be online yet; the topic was the use of logical fallacies in political discourse.)
