    Not so much in constitutional democracies. I criticized the shit out of Colin Powell back when he was wielding vials of sugar in front of the U.N. in order to justify invading Iraq, and the only uniform I ever wore was on the basketball court...

    And unless you have served in the military and put your life on the line for others, you have zero credentials to criticize decorated veterans.

      To me that's along the lines of Orly Taiz accusing Obama of not being a "real citizen", even though she herself wasn't born in America.
