A Memorial Day Toast

...of which Flapy the Right-Wing Jingoist Warmonger Eagle would approve.

RedState has a roundup of Memorial Day observances, including one by Fred! and others by Michael Yon and BlackFive.

Jules Crittendon wants to know why the AP is pushing a big new "grim" Iraq casualty figure to celebrate Memorial Day, but they and the entire MSM seem unconcerned by casualties in Afghanistan.

The AP story leads with the number of new graves opened for dead American soldiers since Memorial Day last, but only those killed in Iraq. Why this slight? Are the dead in Afghanistan not worthy of respect in the eyes of the Associated Press? It is possible that this article is not about honoring the dead at all, or even about reporting the news, but just another thinly veiled editorial attack on the Bush administration? Would the Associated Press be so callous as to use American dead in this manner, as a political tool?


Memorial Day

A day upon which we observe the sacrifice of only those soldiers whose deaths can be used as political ammunition against Republicans.
