In Murdoc’s neck of the woods:
Grand Rapids resident Lori Freye realizes one small protest at a military recruiting station won’t stop the Iraq war in its tracks.
But Freye, 20, believes she must stand up against a war she believes has nothing to do with terrorism.
“We feel that this war would not be possible without the military and without recruiters.”
So does that mean that their goal is to destroy the military by preventing volunteers from joining? And that without a military war would be impossible? Great! And just think of all the extra people available to grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves.
Murdoc wonders what the war is about, though, if not about terrorism.
“We feel that the only motivation behind this war is oil and money.”
This ran in Sunday’s paper:
Some folks don’t like to admit, though, that the O-I-L excuse is just as popular as the 9-1-1 excuse. Okay. A lot of folks.
As for these particular geniuses who think it’s a good idea to dismantle the American armed forces:
“We’re going to keep doing this until it’s over.”
By “this”, Murdoc thinks she means the campaign in Iraq, so I hope she brought some sandwiches or something.
She said this on Friday. Murdoc is thinking of heading down there to see if they’re still on station. Bets?
