Many Unaware of Cowardice

(SNN Washington) Surprisingly, it turns out that decorated Marine, John Murtha, is actually a coward. Sadly, this is just an indication of a greater problem.
Murtha may not have actually earned all of his purple hearts
According to an article in the Washington Post, which is based on article on an unknown web site, written by a man who is on the payroll of the RNC, which is based on an account of a secondhand report from a man who's been dead for 20 years, John Murtha may not have actually earned all of his purple hearts. In addition, it has been reported that several children who were in elementary school with Martha 80 years ago thought he was a "stupid head".
In true cowardly form, Murtha claims that these allegations of his conduct from 30 years ago have only come about because of his opposition to the Bush administration's position on Iraq.
Many people may be cowards and not even know it.
In addition, he tries to disproof is cowardice with the flimsy excuse of volunteering for Vietnam. "I volunteered for a year's duty in Vietnam. I was out in the field almost every single day. We took heavy casualties in my regiment the year that I was there. In my fitness reports, I was rated No. 1. My record is clear."
What Murtha does not understand is that seeing combat in VietNam does not automatically make you a hero. There are plenty of all American heros in the leadership of our government that had other priorities. Real heroism is about supporting the president and not speaking out.
This is the second decorated war veteran and a short knot of time to be proved to actually be a coward when facing the Bush administration. The frightening thing about this is no one knows exactly how far the cowardice reaches. The saddest thing is many people may be cowards and not even know it. If you have a long, distinguished history of defending the United States, and you think that the war in Iraq may not have been justified or simply is not going well, you are probably a coward
