Who died in their place?

Those who didn't go to war sent others to die in their stead.

It's not just a matter of "other priorities," as Dick Cheney said. Cheney avoided vietnam with five or more deferments, and Cameron Trent McAllister died while Cheney ran away from the war in which he could have carried a gun.

Now Cheney sends other young people to their maimings or deaths in a war he encouraged.

Funny how many Republicans are so pro-war after they pass the Selective Service dates.

How quaint, that people die in their stead. As I've said before, I just don't get it how many Republicans who avoided combat when they had the chance end up heading for the Pentagon after draft age. It's just bizarre to me. Kind of like a vegan wanting to run the broiler at a steak joint or something.
