Le Monde Calls America's Servicemen "Turkeys"

Taking advantage of the presidential custom of pardoning a turkey on Thanksgiving in his daily "Billet", Le Monde's Éric Fottorino calls America's servicemen in Iraq "turkeys" (or more precisely, Bush's "fall guys").

Needless to say, leftists of his ilk will protest that their anger against George W Bush's alleged cynicism (as the president's being surrounded by children is meant to imply) amount to support for the poor servicemen in question, but given that Dubya enjoys some 80% of support in the armed forces, it is clear that (unless they express support for Bush's opponents) they are turkeys in any case (Thanks to Carine, TV, and Emmanuel for the hyperlinks).

Thank a Soldier Week
