The U.S. Government Cares Not a Whit for Its Soldiers

Speaking about the prisoner swap for Bowe Bergdahl, note what conservative warmonger Lindsey Graham had to say:

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, meanwhile, lambasted the “unevenness” of Obama’s swap of five Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl. “I wouldn’t have done this trade for a Medal of Honor winner,” he told CNN. “No military member should expect their country to turn over five Taliban commanders to get their release. Nobody should expect that. It’s not the nature of his service that drives my thinking it’s just the illogical nature of the swap.”

Soldiers, if you were being held prisoner, Sen. Graham would have you rot in a cell and be tortured and killed without lifting a finger to release you even if he had the chance. Is not the life of one American soldier worth more than 100 “terrorists” or “ragheads”? If America is the exceptional nation then aren’t its soldiers exceptional as well?

Young men, stay out of the military. The U.S. government cares not a whit for its soldiers.
