Putting the piss in perspective

I suddenly took a liking to Rick Perry.
He may be irrelevant to the campaign with poll numbers equating to other candidates' margin of error. He may have made some gaffes in the debates.
But he's the least politically correct of the candidates.

Unlike the shrill and sanctimonious reactions on the 'Pissing on the Taliban' story he takes the view that they're just kids. 

"These kids made a mistake, there's not any doubt about it," he said. "[They] shouldn't have done it, it's bad—but to call it a criminal act, I think is over the top," Perry told CNN.  "Obviously 18, 19-year-old kids make stupid mistakes all too often and that's what's occurred here."

Absolutely right!  These 18-19 year-olds have to live every hour of every day in Afghanistan in fear of being blown to bits by IEDs planted at the roadside by these Taliban animals, who wear no uniforms and subscribe to no Geneva conventions. These animals don't piss on dead American soldiers ... they mutilate and behead live ones.

Sure it's morally wrong to do what they did.
But don't expect these kids out in the hell of war to have the same PC education and diplomatic fragrance of Hilary Clinton or others in the ruling class

Her troops may have been pissing on the Taliban, but her boss has spent far longer pissing in the wind.
