College Republicans to the Rescue!
To the Editor of the GW Hatchet:
Operation Yellow Elephant salutes those brave College Republicans from George Washington University who confronted leftist anti-war protestors last weekend in Washington, DC. [Tyler Hahn letter published September 29. If you do not wish to register, click on Opinion and scroll down.]
Of particular note is the College Republican snidely asking a protestor why he hadn't yet joined al-Qaida, he replied, "Because I don't have money for the flight."
Fortunately for America and the College Republicans, however, the United States Army provides free air transportation to Iraq (via Kuwait), as well as training, uniforms, salary and allowances, and many other benefits. Your local Army Recruiters welcome all College Republicans who want to Support Our President.
Today, the Army is missing its annual recruiting quota for the first time since 1999, with the highest numerical and percentage shortfall - 7,000 missing recruits - since 1979.
If the GW College Republicans are not cowards or chickenhawks, they should be lining up to enlist. Our country, Our President and his Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, need them. Other civilians ineligible to serve in our military can deal with any protestors back home.
