Are they asking for it?

I've read a couple of alternet stories on how veterans were stranded awaiting medical care and now how Bush Ignores Soildiers' Burials.

Are they just asking for a revolution?

A large fraction of our military is staffed with people from the poor, you send them off to a war, leave them there longer than you promised, cut them off from proper care when they come back, and ignore the ones who died.

I have a hard time coming up with a better strategy for producing a disaffected population of people who know how to kill people.

(Did I mention the US fetish for making sure people can own guns?)
