Edwards Dishonors The Military

Presidential hopeful John Edwards said Monday that Americans should speak out against the war in Iraq this Memorial Day weekend. The  leader of the powerful American Legion was highly critical of Edwards inappropriate message on this, Memorial Day, that was set aside to reflect on the sacrifice of the American military. In my opinion, ALL AMERICANS should be incensed at Edwards deplorable comments!

Edwards also stated that ALL  young people should serve their country, “not just poor kids who get sent to war.” It sounds as though he wants to re-institute the draft!!! It also sounds as though he thinks only “poor kids” get sent to war! That must really upset those Americans serving who have gone through years of education and training in fields such as law or medicine (my nephew who is a surgeon, graduated from the University of Chicago Medical School and was in private practice on the left coast, volunteered for military service and specifically requested duty in Iraq).

Possibly Edwards was thinking of those who can’t afford $400.00 haircuts or $28 Million dollar houses as being “poor” and that is why he made that statement. NOT! He wants “mandatory service” for all Americans! I would bet that “mandatory for all Americans” does not include the members of The Edwards family!!!

 The only conflict that John Edwards is concerned with is the one he is engaged in trying to get the nomination from the Democratic Party for 2008 and he IS worried that Obama or Clinton have “more juice”.

John Edwards is a JOKE!
