Or two, maybe there's the beginning of wisdom here. Families pay a price for warmongering. Best not to invade foreign countries unless there is no choice. As there was a choice with Iraq. Peace.
Citing his past as a member of the military, Palin said her son returned from the Middle East "hardened" and "a bit different." Palin continued, linking her son's alleged PTSD to the assault charges against him. The former failed vice presidential candidate then turned her attention to the president, stating, "It starts from the top, the question though it comes from our own president, when they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through." Paul Rieckhoff, the head of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), was critical of Palin blaming the president, stating that he hopes it "doesn't become a portable chew toy in a political campaign."Then, there is the argument she's actually a genius:
The allegations by Palin against the president contradict with the details in question. Palin blames Obama for her son's actions and his possible PTSD that he suffered as a result of spending time in Iraq. However, Track Palin was a part of Alaska's 25th Infantry Division's 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team that served in Iraq for one year in 2008. While honorable, the time he spent in Iraq that Palin claims caused his PTSD was under the orders of then President George W. Bush, and not President Barack Obama.
No, Palin is the vanguard of a new way of right-wing speechifying, a surprisingly avant-garde method of political outreach for people who think of themselves as the protectors of tradition. Her methods are the most outrageous, but as with most artistic revolutionaries (in this case, with the art of making political speeches), what seems iconoclastic now will swiftly become the norm for those who follow.
