Pat Tillman should be a lesson on the dangers of patriotism, for he gave up a very highly paid and valued career for his country, which then threw him into a fabricated war and killed him with a friendly fire accident.

This is and always was a propaganda campaign from the beginning.

We sound like more of a joke than the commies did circa 1970.
