In the course of his election campaign democrat Tim Spear from North Carolina underlined his support for the US troops with this subtile poster:

Unfortunately it shows a bunch of Waffen-SS reenactors forcing the concerned politician to a public apology...

:lol:

Sometimes you tired of under-read, even moronic, politicians and pundits throwing around history with such irresponsibility...

In combat you always want another soldier covering your back

Ummm, what about Tail End Charlie?

Obviously numbnuts Spear assumed that combat is like politics, where you need to be more concerned about attacks from those behind you than from those your party is attacking.

But what really pisses me off about Spear the Idiot is that he's a Democrat.

I like to think that profound 'patriotic' stupidity is the preserve of the conservatives. Clearly it's not. :( :evil:

I'll equate that with a profound loss of credibility.
