The usual run of anti-American snivelers.
Maybe her son will decide to escape a life of unwashed, whiny leftism by joining the Army! At least he'd meet some straight women with skills!

I know one Mendocino mountain hippie whose son is in Mosul and another whose boy just started basic with jump school and an 11 bravo MOS in his future. Neither mother seems able to comprehend what happened.

(No surrender,no retreat. Well, maybe retreat's ok)

Unless he joins the Marines, in which case he'd meet women with superb skills, but uh...probably a bit too domineering for him. They'd break poor little bobby's back.

I thought we were supposed to have freedom here in these United States. If mom's don't want recruiters sniffing around their kids that's their business. The common thread on FR seems to be that the State owns your children and you should be happy to let them serve. Our founding fathers seemed to think that a "standing army" was a threat to freedom for some reason. It's not anti-American to oppose war.
I volunteered for the Navy in 1968 but that was my personal decision. I could have waited to be drafted but that isn't the culture of my family who dutifully march off to war whenever one occurs.
