Should Bush Twins Volunteer for Combat Duty in Iraq?
Actor Matt Damon said in an interview that maybe Bush’s twin daughters should join the military and go to Iraq to fight. His point about many soldiers fighting because of their financial situations is well taken. Still, I for one don’t know how Jenna and Barbara Bush feel about their father’s illegal war and brutal policies. I’ll say this: If they are in agreement, then they should give serious consideration to enlisting in the military and volunteering for front-line combat duty. Some young chicken hawks agree with Bush’s policies, but have excuses for not signing up (“I can do more good here,” etc.). Don’t they think that people in favor of wars should help fight them?
