Political Ads Show Soldiers Being Blown Up
And their not jihadist ads either! There’s a lot of talk about the RNC and DNC arguing over a recent anti-McCain ad. I don’t care that candidates are attacking each other. What I DO care about is when either party uses video of troops being targeted in an IED attack for political purposes. Not ONE of those hotheaded, ignorant politicians sitting in Congress know anything about the trauma caused by such an explosion – both to those involved and those related or associated with them!
I completely denounce this Al-Qaeda-type use of anti-war propaganda at the expense of the troops over there dealing with these issues on a daily basis. On the bright side, the DNC just saved AQ some money in their video propaganda production budget with this video. I hope the creators are happy with themselves and remove and apologize for this video immediately. The political parties in this country can tear themselves apart all they want. Leave the troops out of it!
