Time to serve


(Thaier al-Sudani/Reuters)


This was sent to warmonger Peter Beinhart. I think he deserves a flood of these letters myself


from Operation Yellow Elephant
to pbeinart@cfr.org
subject Have you considered volunteering for military service yourself?



Dear Mr. Beinart:

Thank you for your strong support of continued U.S. military intervention in Iraq. We have a few questions for you. We would like to publish your answers on our blog.

Are you a veteran? [If so, thank you for your service.] Although it's highly unlikely that you are in ROTC/OCS/something similar, if you are, we thank you for your commitment. Have you applied for military service, but were not accepted? [If so, thank you for stepping forward.] Do you know that you are not eligible to serve? [If so, please let us know that one fact, and we won't contact you again.]

Otherwise, it would appear that you are eligible to serve in our military. Have you considered it? What resulted from those deliberations? Don't you think that someone who advocates military intervention has an obligation at least to consider volunteering personally?

If you have addressed this issue in your columns or elsewhere on the record, we would welcome links. [If you would like to keep something not-for-publication, please use brackets as I am doing with this sentence.] Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Karl Olson
Operation Yellow Elephant
