Fox News' Sean Hannity demanded in 1999 when troops were preparing to go into Kosovo --

"Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life..."

Cal Thomas, another super-duper-uber patriot pundit similarly raged at Bill Clinton's action in the Balkans:

"Americans are a generous people, and few would turn a blind eye to the death of innocent children and other civilians. But feelings alone are not sufficient reason to dispatch someone else’s sons and daughters to new killing fields. And for this president – part of a generation that thought it was too good to fight and die in a war it didn’t like – now thinking it OK to send someone else’s children possibly to their deaths., well, that’s a lot to overcome morally and politically."

For some reason, Hannity and Thomas feel no compunction to repeat these "patriotic" sentiments, even as we are losing the sons and daughters they were so concerned about earlier at a clip of nearly four a day.

Last night, the total was 1,868. We have lost five more this morning. I guess these two have successfully "overcome" their moral and political hang-ups, eh, Scoob?
