Thou Shalt not Disagree

All America shares the difficulty
the President and Administration face in trying to bring the
war in Iraq and Afghanistan to a successful conclusion and introduce
the hope of peace in the Middle East.
Dana Milbank wrote in the June 14th edition of the Washington
Post that "Rove told a New Hampshire audience Monday night
that Democratic critics of the Iraq war such as John Kerry and
John Murtha, both combat veterans, "give the green light
to go to war, but when it gets tough, they fall back of that
party's old platform of cutting and running."
As a retired Naval Reservist, I ask the following questions:
(1) Did Karl Rove ever serve in the Armed Forces?
(2) Did Karl Rove's spouse, brothers, sisters, or children ever
serve in the Armed Forces?
Talking tough is easy if you never have to fight the fight or
share the pain of death or injury.
If Mr. Rove did not serve in the Armed Forces and his family
members remain outside the fray, then perhaps he should look
in the mirror when talking about "cutting and running."
The role of a major Presidential advisor should be resolve problems,
not excoriate anyone who disagrees with Administration policy.
