    Iwo Jima Veterans Blast Time's 'Special Environmental Issue' Cover


    http://www.businessandmedia.org/articles/2008/20080417171532.aspx

    Lt. John Keith Wells, the leader of the platoon that raised the flags on Mt. Suribachi and co-author of “Give Me Fifty Marines Not Afraid to Die: Iwo Jima” wasn’t impressed with Time’s efforts.



    “That global warming is the biggest joke I’ve ever known,” Wells told the Business & Media Institute. “[W]e’ll stick a dadgum tree up somebody’s rear if they want that and think that’s going to cure something.”

    Green is actually the new socialism. It's just a new way to pass all of the socialist ideas into law.

    For those who haven't seen it, Time Magazine's cover features a doctored photograph - the famous Iwo Jima photo of the Marines raising the American flag. The headline is "How to Win the War on Global Warming," and in to doctored photo, ther marines are raising a tree to be planted.

    Iwo Jima veterans were none too pleased.

    I just dont understand why they would be angry?

    It a very big and important issue so its not trivializing the sacrafice they made that day.

    Without winning the inviromental "war" this country will be in very big trouble.

    Please cite proof of that.

    And no...Using the picture on time magazine IS NOT proof that they are retards. Would YOU like YOUR picture being used for someone elses political bullshit that YOU didnt agree with?

    No you wouldnt!
