The Left's Military Maneuvers

The Maine chapter of Veterans for Peace is trying, like they have elsewhere, to ban or radically high school students access to military recruiters in the state. Instead of spouting dogma and implying offences why can't the left give documented proof of widespread military recruiting violations? In reality they are only interested on pushing their warped ideology on young people and remove their right to investigate all career paths. Only liberals can find intellectual honesty in this line of thinking, they think it should be okay for minors to buy Plan-B or have an abortion without parental notification but these same minors must be protected from from military recruiters because they are not mature enough to make their own decisions.The young military people I deal with are some of the best and brightest America has to offer. Even among enlisted members you find more college graduates earning higher pay and with benefits superior to most employers. Yet the left would restrict their rights to talk to such an employer. I support parental opt-outs, just as I support parental notification elsewhere,  but to deny access is wrong and is purely a political move.

Oh and by the way, where was Veterans for Peace during Kosovo, Somalia, or Haiti? In fact we still have troops in Kosovo and Haiti, where are the calls for their withdrawal? Oh at least Pres. Clinton stayed out of one armed conflict, he sat back and allowed millions to be massacred in Rwanda. If I look at this organization's track record they are only against wars that involve conservative presidents. Shame on them and their phony organization.
