Spot on…

Right now, idealistic young Americans are gathered together to fight injustice and build a better world.

Sure, they’re a little dirty, and maybe some of their language is a bit rough, but they’ve left behind family and friends, as well as the creature comforts the rest of us take for granted, to make a stand for what they believe in.

It’s just too bad that today the mainstream media is focusing on the spoiled, incoherent clowns of Occupy Wall Street and ignoring our young fighting men and women.

    Many of the brave soldiers in Kabul and other theaters see themselves defending the opportunity of people to protest to their government and their nation whatever complaints they feel so strongly about. It doesn’t matter whether the soldiers agree or not with the specifics of the protest, nor of its neatness.

    As for complaining about the media who report of items that the essayist disapproves of, the media have to get their news where they can find it. It is a common moan, usually politically driven, that the media deliberately report on items that the essayists may dislike and thereby prove some liberal bias. If a few of the essayists would join the soldiers in the fighting theaters to dig out what they consider good stories, we could have “good” media. What do you think was the response to such media coverage when the Vietnam War was item one every night on the media?

    Although everyone is entitled to an opinion about Occupy Wall Street and Tea Parties, it would be better to leave the soldiers in Kabul out of any appeals for denigrating the protestors.
