Stop-Loss in the Age of Obama

| May 18, 2009

Sporkmaster reminded me in an email about our newest coward, Victor Agosto, a specialist in the 53rd ESB at Fort Hood, Texas, a place I know too well. Well, Victor is understandably upset that, while looking forward to his discharge from active duty in August, he was notified that he was stop-lossed and would have to pull an extra few months in Iraq Afghanistan instead.

Oh, um, Victor is also a member of the IVAW, did I mention that? Well, he is. His membership hasn’t quite made him the babe magnet he’d hoped, however. Until a couple of hippie babes drove from Fort Worth to see him;

Love the Che T-shirt, hon. It really shows off your…um….form.
Well, Victor wasn’t content just refusing to go to Iraq, he decided to put the counseling form from his commander on the internet – that ought to make his commander more understanding, shouldn’t it?

I guess Victor didn’t take into consideration that even if he were discharged from active duty, he still has a few more years of commitment to serve his country, that the Army didn’t really extend his contract, just his active duty time – and they still might by tossing his ass in the slammer for a year or so. Putting his counseling record online probably makes that inevitable.

Victor has been hanging out at the IVAW coffee house, Under The Hood with his new girlfriends, and who can blame with those two hotties. Courage to Resist, who has named Victor their coward of the month, tells us what it’s like to talk with Victor;

Victor doesn’t talk a lot, but when he does he reveals a resolve and intelligence that seems far older than his 23 years.

I hope someone mopped up the slobber on the floor before someone else slips and falls. They go on to describe the interior of the coffee house;

A large world map featuring U.S. interventions takes up one wall. The first interventions posted were Iraq and Afghanistan. Gradually, more countries and dates have been added: Chile, 1973, the CIA-backed military coup; Guatemala, 1954, the Marine invasion; Iran, 1953, the CIA-backed overthrow of the democratic government.

I hope they put up the US invasion of Quebec in 1775, after all, it looks like Victor’s new girlfriends are veterans of that engagement.

But, I wonder how the Left feels that their new President is continuing the Bush policy of stop-loss. That cold, hard slap of reality again.

    How’s this for obnoxious:

    Lady, I don’t give a shit what you think of me or anything else for that matter. I have my own style of writing. I’m blunt, to the point, and I don’t mince words. Trust me, I’ll not be posting on you blog,

    Secondly, I couldn’t care less about your daughter’s breasts or her feeding habits for her kid. I don’t recall making any comments about it to begin with. As for your daughter, tell her to BRING IT ON. I don’t think she or you would weant to be subjected to my wrath.

    Now go back to writing about breastfeeding, or whatever else floats your boat.

    Late in putting my two cents’ worth in, but here it is: I enlisted for three years of Active Duty in the Army in 1991, and came back into the Guard in 2003 as soon as I saw that it would get me deployed. I’ve done two ME tours since, I’m still in a Combat Arms MOS, and I’ll go again as soon as I get my orders! You, Victor, are a cowardly opportunist, and you deserve a stint in jail bein Bubba & Thor’s cell bitch! The difference between you, your ilk, and a dog turd is that the dog turd quits stinking after a few days!!
