How NOT to ""

Soon-to-graduate law student Mr. Josh Levy wants to see America Win-The-War, so that's what he's called his non-partisan, grass roots pro-war website. Click here.

Unfortunately, Mr. Levy seems not to understand how to build broad public support, e.g., by working to find some common ground with real Americans who also focus on that particular issue. This blog has been asking his question, Where the Heck is the Recruiting Drive?, since mid-2005.

Our single supportive comment [on the newest post] was labeled as "trolling" and we are no longer welcome there, even to read. Had he merely asked, we would certainly have honored a request to refrain from commenting, in order to help his site reach its intended audience.

We certainly hope that is not an example of our current National Strategy for Victory in Iraq.

Heh - he's blocked referrals from this site. Thin skinned too.

BTW - how old is Mr. Levy? Soon-to-graduate-from-law-school means twentysomething usually.

And he blocked me as of this morning! I'm sure he left my comment up - asked him to consider going and serving outside the Green Zone.

Reading Mr. Levy's rationales for disliking the term chicken hawk are quite amusing.
What the hell is a chicken dove? It has to be one of the most pathetic retorts I've ever read.

He also uses the canard, "Nor is enlisting the only way to further the cause of victory

Of course, Josh. You stay at ome in your flannel pj's typing away and hositing these "chicken doves" on their own petards and not giving a shit that divorce rates in the military have soared past 60%, that over 30,000 americans have been killed and wounded and will have a red tape parade waiting for them at home as they attempt to decipher the byzantine VA system, that the leaders of this war had no idea the consequences (except for the huge amounts of money the Military-Industrial-Complex was going to make), that marines and soldiers are on their 3rd, 4th, 5th deployments, that the equipment the national guard needs for emergincies in the US is in Iraq and not going to be useable, that hundreds of young women are being raped in Iraq because the military is allowing in a huge number of criminals due to their recruting problems, that thousnads of service members are carrying hidden wounds of war which lead them to destroy themselves and others as they feel no one cares or understands...

I have removed my personal comments concerning the character of a 'man' who would ignore these facts while trying to maintain political power here in the US...

I have a problem with the ridiculous statement by Levy;

"A minimum of 20 million would have to abandon their jobs to sign up. This would throw the country into a recession (hardly desirable in wartime) while burdening the military with massive organizational and logistical problems."

This is an asinie statement. You don't have to quit your job to go down to the local recruitment center and find out if more enlistees are needed. I'm sure that if you want to enlist and are not needed by the rush of enlisments, the recruiter will tell you. Then you just go back to your job.

Does anyone really want Josh Levy to be your lawyer?

Would this guy really put up a strong fight for his client?

Would he be able to negotiate strongly considering he is scared out of his wits of serving as an active duty military person for our country?

Maybe that's why he's trying out a new career as a political activist, with similar prospects of success.
