Veterans Day is a day to apologize

By Michael J.W. Stickings

From our friend Gordon at Alternate Brain:

Thank you for please not thanking me for my service on this Veterans Day. I don't need it and I don't want it. Instead, I think we should APOLOGIZE to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans, the living, wounded, and dead, for being so horribly used IN OUR NAME for NOTHING but an imperialistic neocon wet dream that has come to naught but a terrible butcher's bill.

And for all you armchair militarists waving the flag and spouting knee-jerk jingoism, this guy's got real cred. So fuck off.
