West Pointer calls "bullshit" on Junior's military posturing

James Ryan, co-founder of West Point Graduates Against the War, calls "bullshit" on the chummy militaristic posturing of Junior's recent speech at the Point. Many good lines, but the very best ones might be:

You throw around the names of old grads like Eisenhower and Bradley, using them to somehow justify what you and your big buddies in DC have done to the world. What do you know about Eisenhower or Bradley? You might get away with that stuff in the oval office, but not up here. Not at West Point. You got that, wack? You got that loud and clear, beansmack? Good. Retain same.
If only anybody was listening.
