On a post on what the chat logs between Bradley Manning and the guy who dobbed him in reveal about that sneaky gentleman, a commenter reveals one attitude to Bradley from serving members of the military:
I have 3 active duty service members in my immediate family, two of whom are on their umpteenth millionth redeploy to that sh*thole that is Afghanistan. They’re also Marines.
Their take on this: Whatever gets us the fuck out of here fastest is OK by me.
Quite. Let’s be clear: the real people put at risk by the Wikileaks revelations were those in charge of what’s happening over there, not the soldiers themselves. The risk those guys are in could hardly get higher.
