I've heard people that were in similar positions say the same thing including Air Force One staff. She's very rude to service people.

My uncle met her while she was in GA once. He was a state trooper at the time and was part of some security thing for her. He said the same thing: horribly rude and acted like an entitled brat. We're all about southern hospitality and warmth so I was surprised he said that.

I remember years ago on reddit, the hive mind agreed with her saying that only those left alive could be called victims as once you were dead it technically didn't affect you anymore. The only exercise that is tolerated at that place is mental gymnastics.

By that logic rape is fine as long as you kill the victim.

Well, there is something to that. I mean, I'm kind of hoping I die before I'm 70 for that reason alone. I'll be dead. It's also why I've signed a small novel's worth of DNRs.

But it's not something you say about people KIA. Nosireebob

War is a very complicated issue. War does not only affect those who were maimed and killed on the battlefield. If you examine the memoirs of Soviet citizens on the homefront during the Great Patriotic War, you will see that in many ways the suffering of the women and children was just as bad as the soldiers who were on the front lines dying. There is a great film i dissected for my final undergraduate thesis for Soviet Studies, Летят журавли (The Cranes Are Flying) by Mikhail Kalatozov that does a great job of the suffering that citizens endured on the homefront. Comparing hte suffering in certain conflicts are like comparing apples and oranges. Soldiers face certain hardships that a civilian could not possibly understand, but civilians in war-zones experience hardships that a soldier may not experience.

No one is saying it ONLY affects those on the field. But Hillary is saying the primary victims are female. What about makes who lose sons, brothers, and fathers? What about the makes who see their PTSD parent our best friend come home a wreck? And that's not to mention the wounded, the prisoners of war, the mentally scarred, and the men who would have loved to be home as their kids grew up.

As a woman and as a vet, I personally find her comment super insulting, and her despising of the troops while she was FLOTUS absolutely makes her among the worst possible choices for CINC.

You guys joke (and I loled a bit), but Clinton is a part of the machine.

She is not dumb. Those statements are obviously calculated to acquire votes from women. If you explicate the reasoning of the argument, one of the premises is that losing loved-ones is hard. The logos (that is the appeal to logical consequence) of this argument, that dying or getting injured would make a better victim, is pushed aside in favor of the appeal to emotion, the pathos of the argument, which is targeted towards women.

I don't doubt her intelligence, or at least her experience in politics, to use such simple but effective methods of collecting votes. Trump seems to make his own calculated statements, even if they sound off-the-cuff. Sanders too, he just says things some people want to hear.

What about the issues? Why do we care so much about soundbites? How can little bits of information distract people so effectively?

This is actually an equality problem. They should be drafted exactly as males in case of war... Why shouldn't they? Aren't they equal to men?

I did not know that. Now I don't feel so bad for those suckers who ate up the war propaganda like Ron Kovic was portrayed in the movie, Born on the Fourth of July.
