Default Halp us Jon Carry - We R stuck hear n Irak

Quote:
John Kerry has finally apologized for calling those that are serving in Iraq uneducated. Now the troops are firing back at John Kerry. In a photo some clever soldiers let Kerry know they weren't pleased with the arrogant liberal US Senator looking down his nose at them while they serve.

John Kerry has now headed back to Washington DC to lick his wounds - he'* basically in hiding - but the troops are firing back. The soldiers deployed a hilariously misspelled sign mocking the failed presidential candidate'* comments about their education.

"Halp us Jon Carry - We R stuck hear n Irak," reads the sign above, which was apparently the brainchild of a group of service members from the Minnesota National Guard.

Once the photo hit the Drudge Report it took off and was e-mailed millions of times. I thought it was a hoax, but apparently it is legitimate. The NY Post calls it a GI 'Smart bomb' and gives this explanation.

The picture was first revealed yesterday on the blog Web site of Milwaukee talk radio host Charlie Sykes, who said he got it from a listener who had a buddy in the unit.

Staff Sgt. Erik Holtan, a member of the Minnesota National Guard, says he saw the picture and recognized the insignia as that of his fellow Minnesota guardsmen - and he immediately put it up on his own blog site.

"It'* awesome," he told The Post. "The troops over there have to be livid because of what [Kerry] said. I don't know why he would say that."

Holtan, who works at Guard headquarters, said he believes the troops behind the Kerry sign are in Iraq, since all the members of the unit in the shot - the 1/34 Brigade Troops Battalion - have been deployed.

The soldiers might be real, but that ain't Iraq... look at the two leafless trees in the background; thats winter setting in.

Thoughts?

Thats exactly my point, the lack of green!

They aren't going thru fall! (yet?) Heck, I've still got some leaves left on my trees, not many though.

How about DEAD trees. I'll believe the news now that they've confirmed it.
