I think there was no impuignment of WW2 vets and the GI bill in Qxlb52's statement, only the concern that McCain and others make about the sweeping "carte-blanche" attraction of the bill that MIGHT tempt people into recruitment just for the pay. It appears that McCain and other vets are afraid this bill will create "mercenary class soldiers" and not true soldiers. We want tough fighting men for our country's defense and not a bunch of trigger-happy, disgruntled mercenaries for anyone who'll pay them enough.
And who's to say that gang bangers might not enlist just to sharpen their urban combat skills before taking the money and running? Another justifiable fear.
No I think Qxlb52's statement impuigned nobody, bit did warn of the fears many active, reserve, and veteran soldiers have.

Ok, the rense.com article is NOT an article it is an opinion piece filled with slant and accusations with no proof. The Newsweek article is also an opinion piece and hardly implicates Obama in anything. Obama needs a team of foreign policy experts, otherwise who is going to advise him on foreign policy issues? Secondly, all of these people are Clinton break-aways who don't want anything to do with that style of dynastic politics. Thirdly, the article implicated a CFR effort to campaign against Obama. So far I've heard so many accusation, and by your own articles have damned your positions to the pit of unsubstantiated rumors that the far right has been trying to push about Obama. Capitalizing on the conspiracy theory crowd as well, knowing that these people, at the drop of a dime(or in this case the name CFR) will stop listening and start accusing without review.
You can't just accuse someone of something through an association(no matter how tight or loose) unless you know how far that relation goes and whether there really are implications to worry about. So far none of you have given me squat resembling fact. You read an article or OP-ED piece and parade it around as fact without checking these claims. This is the internet, please be more scrutinizing of the information your put your trust in.
