Orright, try this on your friends, Americans.
Who are the U. S. A. 's most famous soldiers? I don't mean Generals, and not your great uncle Jim, but famous working soldiers? And why?
War by war, you'll get-
First world war? Sergeant York, maybe Rickenbacker. Killed lots of enemy.
World war II? Audie Murphy. Killed lots of enemy.
Vietnam? John Kerry. Killed one enemy, threw away medals.
John McCain. Captured, imprisoned a long time.
(No, "that football guy" Tillman was Afghanistan. ) IRAQ.
Lynndie England. Naked prisoner on leash.
Jessica Lynch. Captured, tortured after being knocked out in a truck wreck.
And now "that protestor woman's son", Casey Sheehan. His mother is angry.
Should we see a pattern here?
