This is a different sort of episode from what you’ve come to expect from us. The three of us are in utter shock at the brazen, cowardly, illegal assassination of IRGC General Qassem Suleimani and the potential aftershocks to the Middle East as a whole. The U.S. is the closest it has ever been to all out war with Iran. This should scare you; it terrifies the fuck out of us.
And with that in mind, we want to remind our listeners, especially those who are still in the military, of one very important thing: you don’t have to do this. You don’t have to deploy to the Middle East. You don’t have to sacrifice your own safety, nor those of your fellow troops, nor certainly the safety of the people of the Middle East (especially Iraqis and Iranians.) If you need an ear, email us anytime. You can also call us, leave a message, and we will call you back. You also can contact the fine folks at the GI Rights Hotline. Their information is below.
The GI Rights Hotline provides accurate, helpful counseling and information on military discharges, AWOL and UA, and GI Rights:
