From the A.P.:

A U.S. Marine and one-time recruiter who appeared in Michael Moore’s acclaimed documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” has died in a roadside bombing in Iraq.

Although Staff Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar willingly appeared in a segment of the 2004 film, his father, Raymond, said Tuesday that his son didn’t realize that it was for a movie critical of the war.

Plouhar’s father closed with something that Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan need to read:

“We need to resolve the war,” he said. “If we walk out now, my son died for nothing and that will make me mad.”

Those among us who use caskets of brave soldiers as leftist soapboxes should heed those words.

To use the deaths, as Sheehan, or lives and deaths, as Moore, of U.S. soldiers who enlisted, and reenlisted, willingly as an anti-war statement is to discredit their beliefs and judgment, not to mention their intellect.

Now another one of America’s finest has died so Michael Moore and company can be free — free to continue to insult their intelligence, both overtly and covertly.

“Support the troops” my ass.
