Via Jammie Wearin Fool:
Men—-Don’t ever think that the kids running around on some university campuses protesting, breaking things and whining have anything on you. You are privileged to have that one advantage that all covet—you will know – about the goings on in Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti, the Philippines, the Balkans and many other places. Your head will not be filled with the empty theory of those who—in actuality know very little because they lack the intestinal fortitude to commit to anything which requires risk. I’m speaking of the snide, arrogant sort who spend all day blaming America for every wrong in the world before going home to sleep at night under that blanket of freedom provided by better men—-men like you.
