Yesterday was Memorial Day in the USA, a public holiday that recognizes America’s war dead.
President Barack Obama was participating in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.
“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay, but we can honor their sacrifice,” Obama said at a Memorial Day service at the cemetery. “And we must.”
Excuse me for pissing on your parade, or more appropriately, on your war dead, but x percent of them died unnecessarily, as did countless mothers, fathers, cousins, brothers, sisters with Muslim names in a land far away. The frat-boy that previously farted in your chair and his team were responsible, and you have carried the baton close to your heart. Is it a political thing that I don’t comprehend that is behind all of this?
