Let me do what you won't. I don't believe a word of Suits' alleged war hero stories. I think the guy is a straight up republican plant. My guess is he was as far from the action as possible. Guys who actually see combat don't talk like Suits. I saw combat in Nam. (Was drafted.) I know the difference between a poser and a patriot and Suits sounds like a poser to me.

He's nothing more than a Jeff Ganon plant working in the US Army rather than the Whitehouse and his bloviation is sickening!

Bourne and Hood: what a pair of cowards you are.

Bourne: I dare you level these accusations to his face. Suits' record is public info, do a PDR if you're so inclined. Wimp.

But you'll believe anything that will puff you up and make others seem smaller. You have no idea how small that makes you.

John

Suits is mostly a self-promoting blathermeister in love with the sound of his own voice

You've nailed it right on the dot. I remember the days when all Suits would talk about was his hopeless love life - a long ways from serial Army acronym dropping and the finer points of the latest weaponry.

Scott

Hey Rutherfag I'd L O V E to make these allegations to that punk Suit's face. Problem is, he's always hiding it behind a mic!

I don't deny that the White House and the GOP have lined his public service record with all sorts of good news. I just don't believe it or anything else any of you right wing traitors care to spew.

Ripper

Will Scott be banned for bigotry?

I was in Iraq with LT Suits. His job and my job were very similar. We spent a lot of time talking with local Iraqis. Trying to get a feel for them and the way they operate; trying to "sell" the coalition to the Iraqis. He did an outstanding job. VERY hard worker. He spent more time outside the wire than just about anybody in our unit. He probably ended-up understanding more about the Iraqi's than anybody else in our unit. Yes he was wounded by a mortar. Yes he was blown-up and attacked on several different occassions. He took it all in stride and laughed about it and continuted his mission. While he was in Iraq he also made many different media contacts, presentations, etc. He was simply promoting himself for when he returned to the US. Making his name more widely known. That's just the way he is. What counts is that he was given a job to do by the military that he had no substantial training for, was given no direct guidance about, and he dove into it headlong and did a very good job at it.

Scott

More proof that Suits and his ilk are all hat and no cattle. I spent two years in country in Nam and NO ONE ever said the words "outside the wire."

Nice try right winger but you're just a poser too!

Ripper

"Nam"- Scott
Are you stupid, boy? We ain't talking about the Commie vs. Harvard-Tard jungle fight here.

Scott

No Ripped I am not stupid. I am your better in every way. Bow to me boy. Take your rightful place at my feet. Admit you are a traitor and I may go easy on you!

Suits is a loudmouth who panders to his audience.

When he was on KIRO, he spoke often of his military service, but absent the buzzwords, acronyms, ect, ect. He even once said that the perpetual and tiresome hatred of Jane Fonda was just an "albatross" that wasn't helping anyone and that all involved should simply move on. Then he gets to KVI and adjusts his tune to that audience, and starts singing the "Hanoi Jane" tune, but is just as off key.

Suits can clevely turn a phrase, and for awhile is fun to listen to, but he panders and kisses ass in the finest tradition of Mike Siegel.

Bleh!

Norm

Longtime listener of local news and talk radio and I'm glad to see a blog dedicated to local talk. This forum is a direct result of being a free people living in a free society. Regardless of Lt. Suits personal ambitions post Iraq, I believe his military service and reporting is not only an encouragement to U.S.A. citizens, but an example to be followed by the Iraqi citizens that he and his compatriots helped to empower and educate. To argue whether Lt. Suits is some kind of political plant seems a red herring. I remember hearing him on KIRO but I didn't listen as often nor as intently, apparently. Maybe he does "slant" his comments toward his audience. I hope he doesn't, because that won't bode well for his talk radio future. From what I hear, the most successful shows are those that have a host who says what they believe and believe what they say. And are willing to admit they don't know everything and occasionally they may even change their minds. Especially when given a reasonable and rationale argument that's has a basis of truth attached to it. And along those lines, isn't it possible that Lt. Suits may have been changed by his experiences in Iraq? War has a way of influencing people deeply, or so I've heard!

peace be with you all,

Norm

williebdog

Norm you a probably correct about the experiences changing one's perspective. Some of the things our unit saw and did were fairly intense. Just being out with the local population in our area day after day was a life-altering experience. He was in a hostile environment, occassionally being attacked, driving down the roads, stopping at places and talking with people. It definitely causes you reflect on life and what's really important to you. It makes you think about how you want things to be when you get back. Forces you to commit to stop pandering and wasting time. I don't know if these thoughts occurred to LT Suits, but I know they have to some of us.

Oh, and Scott is it? Nam was a long time ago boy. Different era, different Army. I've been in this military for nearly 16 years now and two wars. Catch-up with the times.

Scott

Dear Brian, er I mean "Williedog":

I got your boy hanging. It's pitiful that you come on this blog pretending to be someone else to back up your own story.

I called you out and you did what all GOP chickenhawks did, you punted!

Here's the REAL story. Some 5-year old through a coke bottle at Bloviating Brian. He screamed and cowered like a girl, pissed his pants, ran and hide and then used it as inspiration for this "I survived an explosion" story.

Yeah right!

Let me guess. Lt. Suits went to OCS at the same place Jeff Gannon went to journalism school?

williebdog

Who's Jeff Gannon? I'm not a journalism guy. I'm not Brian, just somebody who worked with him. Willie is my dog's name and I use it on all internet things such as this.

You win. I quit. I don't have much time for somebody who is obviously off of their rocker and simply wants to argue and throw insults.

See ya.

Scott

Good thing you gave up punk. All you right wing nuts have that in common. You simply don't have the courage of your convictions. Suits is a poser. He will go the way of all posers and disappear as soon as the audience figures out he's a lying SOB.

I said that.
