Welcoming Our Warriors: Col. David Sutherland On Veterans
Welcoming Our Warriors: Col. David Sutherland On Veterans

Listen
AIR DATE: January 31, 2013

Col. David Sutherland served in two wars, commanded troops in Iraq during the surge, and served on the Joint Chiefs of Staff before he retired a few years ago. His latest battle is on the home front, where he has devoted himself to helping veterans return to their families and communities. He is currently the executive director of the Center for Military and Veteran Community Services (Dixon Center). He will join us to talk about a new partnership with the Easter Seals and to discuss how communities can better serve the needs of returning servicemen.

GUEST

Col. David Sutherland, Executive Director, Center for Military and Veteran Community Services

Sorry for posting the same comment twice. I'm not all that computer literate...

So the Colonel "went to war for his neighbors", etc. What a crock. He went to an illegal war (I presume he's literate enough to read the Constitution) to wreak havoc on a relatively poor society--not unlike the monsters I used read about in "comic" books as a child just after WWII--and is only concerned about himself and the plight of his equally misguided comrades. He and other like-minded politicians and bureaucrats not only destroyed entire countries and cultures, but have even bankrupted our own nation, in more ways than one. Why is KNPR supporting the moral bankruptcy represented by this man? Why is KNPR so incapable of criticizing anything--even this brand of barbarity--that government does? Is it because KNPR IS fundamentally government? Why not bring on guests who have differing opinions instead of swallowing hook, line and sinker the uncritical and, actually, sick views of the government guests of your first 2 themes today?

The colonel is another government bureaucrat justifying his existence. He says some things are more vile than war. Please ask him what in Iraq was more vile that the horrors our government visited on that country. US = trillions for government war and then tens of billions more for government "solutions".
