Conspicuous Gallantry

Tibor Rubin, Holocaust survivor, immigrant, Korean War hero, will receive the Medal of Honor tomorrow, a half a century late. Good story.

Incredibly powerful. I think it must make all of us wonder whether we’re doing enough.

"I was just a shmuck, a little greenhorn," Rubin marveled in his still-thick Hungarian accent. "Now I’m a ’sir.’ This only can happen in America." What a great American!

We should have pulled out of Korea 60 years ago. Rubin was a misguided individual that made sacrifices for nothing. Don’t get me wrong, I support our troops. I just don’t think they should EVER have to do what they volunteer to do. They should never be allowed to finish the work they do either. By all means, they should never risk their lives for people that can’t buy freedom for themselves.

Well, "Liberal," I’m glad we don’t have to depend on you for our nation’s wars.

To call Mr. Rubin a "misguided individual" makes you look like a stupid narcissist incapable of recognizing the highest form of courage.

This is truly one of those cases where if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t bloody say it.

I hope your "contributions" to other threads will be more mature and less callous. You have a long way to go.

Put your guns away, David. It was a satire. Ima actuallya conservative, like you.

I think you hit the mark, though.
