Who Says We Don't Honor Them With a Parade?

No, you'll not see our Iraq War veterans respected by the mayors of New York City, Baltimore, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, or Philadelphia - Democrats all* - with parades down their cities' main thoroughfares.

But that's not to say that America isn't honoring them with showers of affection as our brave troops return triumphant from a long and costly - and victorious - war.

Via Michelle Malkin - a video capturing the mightiest fighting force ever known to humankind receiving a hero's welcome on their return from the front:

"The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
  -- John Stuart Mill --

Here's to those who have proven themselves to be better men - and women - than the mayors -scoundrels, lowlifes, and worms all - of all those cities.

* New York's mayor is Michael Bloomberg.  Like I said ...
