Suffer Not a Traitor to Live

since Congress has established a policy of allowing members of the Department of Defense to express their personal opinoins without fear of retribution (even if they are on active military duty), let express one of mine in response to this:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 200 active duty U.S. armed service members, fed up with the war in Iraq, have joined an unusual protest calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country, organizers said on Wednesday.

The campaign, called the Appeal for Redress from the War in Iraq, is the first of its kind in the Iraq war and takes advantage of Defense Department rules allowing active duty troops to express personal opinions to members of Congress without fear of retaliation, organizers said.

"As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq," states the appeal posted on the campaign's Web site at

"Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home," it adds.

My opinion: each member of the miltary that signed this petition and those who wrote and distributed it are traitors for actively aiding and abbetting the enemies of this country.

And traitors should be incarcerated for life or shot outright.
