Trump Takes on the Soldiers — Remember When a Demagogue Last Did That?

So, as reported by Politico,  Donald is taking on the soldiers now:

Donald Trump rang in the Army’s 241st birthday in unusual fashion on Tuesday — by calling attention to theft of government funds by American soldiers in Iraq.
“Iraq, crooked as hell. How about bringing baskets of money — millions and millions of dollars — and handing it out?,” Trump said at an evening rally. “I want to know who were the soldiers that had that job, because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be.”

Now, as Politico reports in the same story, there have been instances of theft by US military, and, of course, the campaign does claim that the reference was to Iraqi soldiers.

But, and its hard to forget this, it was only when fellow demagogue Joe McCarthy took on the military that he was finally held to account.

A salutary precedent.

  1. I do not know it for a fact, but did The pallets of $1Bil disappeare into offshore accounts controlled by Cheney, the Bushes, Rumsfeld and Rice? The soldiers’ cut was negligible, so don’t worry.
