And I was in the US Navy. But by BEING so doesn’t change the fact that dtroutma…and YOU are very wrong! I honor anybody that served honorably in the service. But dtroutma and people like you stain your service by throwing it around every time someone disagrees with you by using it to belittle them just because they did serve. And a distinguished veteran wouldn’t keep using it as a political weapon like that.I also notice, Landers, that while calling me misinformed and lacking independent thought, that you failed to point out where I was wrong in my statement about what ISIS/ISIL are doing to Christians in Mosul just because they aren’t converted to Islam and NOT because America and Israel kill their children. Why would they attack their own people if that were the case???I’d rethink my position on where you stand on things if you’re the ones thinking we’re misinformed…..
