    Given that it's a ceremonial occasion, wouldn't the military acquiesce to the Secret Service's directions regarding the parade?

    Invoking 9/11? An event where Marines with rifles would have ... not altered the course of events in any way?

    When the whole argument is about why, then I'd say it's pretty important to care if you're actually trying to participate in the discussion rather than just play Statler-and-Waldorf from the cheap seats.

    Is John Kerry included in that "we"?

    "They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country".

    What does Kerry have to do with the RWers dissing the Marines?

    Who do you think Kerry is dissing in those statements? Is he a RWer? I certainly hope not!
