I Can’t Blame Them

Shares

Given that hardly anyone currently supporting the war in the media these days has actually had any military experience, I can\’t expect them to use too exacting of military terminology.  However, my military experience amounts mostly to playing SOCOM III, and even I can differentiate between a ‘surrender’ and a ‘retreat’. 

I don\’t recall ever signing on to having tens of thousands of American troops ‘surrender’ to the insurgency (as if the insurgency hasn\’t taken enough hostages), but apparently Anne Coulter has met such people.  Spin is one thing, but if ‘retreat’ and ‘surrender’ were close enough concepts for one to be legitimately spun into another, POW camps would outnumber prisons.
