Naw… he’d rather meet with leaders of countries which sponsor terrorists.
What a great story… Anti-war lawyer keys a Marine’s car just before the Marine was to deploy to Iraq. He got caught. Here’s the background. And justice was sweet – read thru to the end of the article, and the first few comments… I just love a happy ending! Via Instapundit.
Strategypage has a brief write-up about status of military recruitment efforts: In the last six months, the U.S. Army is seeing 15 percent more soldiers re-enlist than expected. This continues a trend that began in 2001. Every year since then, the rate at which existing soldiers have re-enlisted has increased. This despite the fact that [...]
