Bowe Bergdahl

So Bowe’s family is getting death threats from the children who don’t know who the enemy is. 

Let’s look at it this way: Bowe deserted. He broke a contract. He was wrong.

Who else was wrong? How about every congressman who voted to allow the invasion of a foreign country without a declaration of war? Did they not swear to obey the document that required that?

I don’t condone Bowe’s actions. He should have found a way to deal with his change of heart concerning our involvement in Afghanistan. But he signed the contract. On the other hand, he also swore to obey The Constitution like the congressmen. So does he obey his superiors or his oath?

As I’ve said here before, I chose not to go to Vietnam, accepting prison instead if necessary, because The Constitution was more important than the lunacy of stopping communism in a country half-way around the world because it would spread here; when the perps were spreading communism here as they conducted that fiasco. (I didn’t go to prison. I assume the idiots who ran the draft board lost my records. Too bad they didn’t lose them all.)

Bowe Bergdahl is no hero. He didn’t refuse to participate, as he should have. But the people who make threats to his family are outclassed by him easy.

One response to “Bowe Bergdahl

  1. I seriously doubt that Sgt. Bergdahl had in mind a devotion to the U.S. Constitution when he defected. In fact, his defection spits at the Constitution, as though we were back in the cold war days when a few American citizens defected, choosing the totalitarian ideology and the Karl Marx book, “The Communist Manifesto,” over capitalism and the American Constitution. The Bergdahl defection was quite possibly a strictly a choice of one religion over another, as opposed to any political statement (although, Islam is a complete way of life, including a political facet).

    Btw, I’ve read a couple of reports that claim that Bergdahl now refuses to talk with his family to whom he has not communicated since his surrender to American military authorities – what is one to make of this? I understood that, at least regarding Bowe’s father, Bowe and dad were of a kindred spirit.
