Unless they have obviously moved on to the other side of the game. A friend of mine sent me the grand comedy of the strange right wingers, who are, well, amusing:
The depressing and dishonest films about American troops in the Middle East, like the odious Redacted, produced by Mark Cuban, seem to be immune to pressure from patriotic Americans. Although the films lose huge amounts of money, the billionaire producers of the films do not care. Hollywood and the coastal elites love bashing America and the financial bottom line in these films simply do not matter to anti-Americans with billions of dollars of personal wealth.ah yes....
What can we do? Well, to the extent that the films deliberately portray an inaccurate and defamatory picture of our troops in combat, there is at least one approach we could take: sue the producers. The mother, father, wife or husband of a soldier killed in Iraq after Redacted came out should bring a defamation action for ten million dollars or so against Mark Cuban. Ten million dollars is reasonable compensation for the wrongful death of an American citizen.

if only treason were a torte.
There is also the small legal problem that these fruit bats need to also work out.
Namely the criminal convictions in the US Military Courts for the underlying war crimes that were actually committed by actual american troops in the field.
I mean, gosh, as long as the point of the drill is to avoid the actual american law, because one wants to use the 'traitor' slam on anyone who is not supporting the party dogma, is, well, gosh, a well known gambit by the psuedo-fascists bent upon a drift away from the actual law of the actual constitutional republic.
But, well, everyone already knew that, eh no???
And while we are here, I always wonder why these folks who are in the rear with the beer, are willing to do any damage they can to american law in the hope of pimping some notion of 'supporting the troops'. Could the problem here be tgghat they have no personal honor that they could bring to bear with they are asked to swear their oath of honor to protect the US Constitution, from enemies both foreign and domestic.... and is that the main reason that they are still in the rear with the beer?
