Observations here on the ground in [XXXXXX] suggest rather substantial discontent in the California National Guard, the largest Guard force in the U$A.
I often strike up individual conversations with members of the Guard in and out of uniform who express concern, anger and outright contempt when I mention Afghanistan.
These folks are damn pissed off being used in a war that serves no purpose other than to prop up the share value of some slimy fat cat arms dealers who live high off the hog at the expense of blood needlessly spilled in the name of 'god' and profit.
Amazing how many see right through the smoke and bullshit Washington spews out.
These 'kids' are very switched on and represent the new young 'Fuck The Army' generation.
I'm often surprised having such positive anti-war conversations with someone in a US military uniform. Often I simply listen quickly sensing the relief they feel being able to express their views to a supportive member of the public.
The Pentagon must be shit worried knowing these soldiers have minds of their own and no fear in expressing their opinions.
Having worn that uniform myself once my comment to the Brass in Washington is 'be afraid, be very afraid!' of your soldiers General Ass-Hole Sir.
They might become your biggest nightmare much sooner than you think.
