If not himself, maybe other family members.  Maybe his neighbors.

        Excellent message, John.  In particular I support your suggestion that Mitchell show the strength of his feelings and volunteer to go to Iraq.

As a retired Navy officer and sometimes "liberal," I find your comments typical of one who does not appreciate our freedom to speak and disagree with the administration.  I was opposed to the invasion of Iraq from the beginning. However, the incompetance of our intelligence services and the mind-set to show the world we can do whatever we want has resulted in an unstable Middle East, great propaganda for radical terrorist, American dead and wounded, the depletion of military resources that will take years to replace, a ballooning national debt, and a profound distrust of our government by our own public. (I guess I am also a traitor, but certainly do not love my country any less than you.)
I suggest that if you feel so strongly about our "mission" in Iraq, that you volunteer to go and support our troops in-country.

   damn well wave it around as I see fit. You bleeding heart liberals that
   hold the armed forces in contempt, sir (and I use that term lightly), are
   quite despicable. For any American to take the name of the armed forces of
   this great country in vain in just plain heresy. Were it not for them, you
   would not have the right to spew your vile remarks.

   I will not lower myself to trading barbs with you over Iraq. Every one of
   your hero Dem Senators agreed with the same intelligence seen by the
   President. My remarks were the assertion we, the United States of America,
   obtain permission from the most corrupt body on the face of the earth (UN)
   before taking actions to protect our interests is ludicrous. For the idiot
   poet (Franz) or you for that matter to suggest that the US has taken or
   caused more deaths in 5 years than Saddam did in 25 yrs is well...treason.

   As far as foreign aid...I make no distinctions as to the country of origin
   of previously mentioned remarks. You criticize...you get cut off!! So
   don't let your disdain for Egypt and Israel enter the debate.

   As far as Franz being an asset to RadSafe, I'll let the RadSafe masses
   decide that. Perhaps if he is so special to you the two of you should move
   in together. Being a Registered Nurse, I do however, suggest you both
   practice safe sex.

   I can't comment on Fox News or CNN, because I don't watch them.

   Invading Iraq did not protect US interests, nor did it protect US 
   citizens. It has killed over 3000 US citizens though. We may be the most 
   powerful nation, however might does not make right. Your claim that the 
   French would be speaking German is rubbish and shows your resounding 
   ignorance about World War II. After Stalingrad Hitler was beaten, and both 
   the Germans and the French might have ended up speaking Russian. That 
   probably would have done nothing to upset the disciples of FDR; nor would 
   it have upset any of the sappy knee-jerk liberals who so plagued this 
   country in the 1960s and 1970s.

   I agree with you about cutting off foreign aid, but why not be 
   consistent and cut off *all* foreign aid? You can start with cutting off 
   Egypt and Israel. I doubt that Austria receives much US foreign aid, and 
   if it doesn't Austrians probably wouldn't care if their (possibly) 
   non-existent foreign aid came to an end.

   Review your own history. I think Franz is an asset to RADSAFE, 
   even when I don't like what he says. Finally, you are not the only one who 
   has been in the service, so quit waving it around like it makes you special 
   or important.
