WE HAVE ALWAYS HATED EURASIA - EASTASIA - WHOEVER: This story and the one below were both spotted by that always invaluable portal The Sideshow.
On the Thursday before Christmas, Al Neuharth ... suggested in his weekly column ... that the U.S. should start bringing home our troops from Iraq "sooner rather than later." ...according to the latest Gallup poll, a majority of American believe it was a mistake to invade Iraq in the first place, and feel the war is not going well for us. ...

Yet, our brief article about the Neuharth column (which did not endorse his position) got linked at numerous other Web sites, and drew more letters than virtually any story we have ever posted. ... Just to give you an idea of what's out there, in the zeitgeist, here are a few additional extracts. ... One should keep in mind that Neuharth, besides his professional accomplishments, served his country in World War II as an infantryman in France, Germany and the Phillippines, and won a Bronze Star. ...

George Wyman: "Mr. Neuharth is simply UnAmerican."

Jeffrey A. Norris: "Cowards and traitors like Al Neuharth want all the comforts they know and enjoy, without a sacrifice to buy it." ...

Kenneth Genest: "They had two of these in World War 2. One was called Tokyo Rose and the other Axis Sally. Their job was to discourage the American soldiers. I see they have one now at USA Today."

Dan Clawson, Fresno,m CA.: "A disgrace to the men and women who serve. USA Today supporting the terrorist cause." ...

Peter Kessler: "And as for the good war, WW II, the lefties were four-square for that one. Yes sir, they were saving the USSR, Stalin and Communism. It's sad we didn't join Hitler until he wiped out the USSR. Alger Hiss and the Uptown Daily Worker (The New York Times) be damned. I see you've joined the club. Well, you're probably a founding member."

Joe McBride, Fort Dodge, Iowa: "Mr. Neuharth, thanks to you and your ignorance the terrorists are probably booking their flights to the U.S. now! If we pull out of Iraq with the job unfinished the terrorists will be bombing McDonalds, and blowing up malls and schools here, killing our innocent men, women and children." ...

Mel Gibbs: "The Patriot Act will put both of you (Neuharth and Mitchell) on trial for treason and convict and execute both of you as traitors for running these stories in a time of war and it should be done on TV for other communist traitors like you two to know we mean business...."

    Greaaat...makes me so proud.

    yes, that's sarcasm. with a healthy dose of fright for the level of ignorance, arrogance, presumption and hatred that these people are displaying.

    of course, people don't come up with such things as, "bombing McDonalds" without a certain amount of prompting from those they get their information from. and judging from that particular comment it obvious what's more important. not the soldiers who are in fact dying for a war that was foisted upon the public, but their malls and McDonalds. i'm sure they meant to add Walmart but were in such a tizzy they forgot.

    nevermind that innocent men, women and children have been and continue to be killed on a very regular basis. just not in his backyard.
