Operation Yellow Elephant

Sticker_1 The objective of OPERATION YELLOW ELEPHANT is to recruit College Republicans and Young Republicans to serve as infantry. They demanded this war and now viciously support it. It’s only right that they also experience it.

So far, it isn’t going too well.  Recently, as reported here, Operation Yellow Elephant tried to get a recruitment ad into the program of the upcoming Young Republican “America – Fuck Yeah!” Jamboree (or whatever it’s called).  The ad text reads:

OUR NATION IS AT WAR! * We are in a desparate struggle for all we believe in * Our military is suffering a manpower crisis * Why are you here when your country needs you in Iraq? * Talk is cheap.  American needs more from you. * College, family, and careers can wait. * Heed your nation’s call and enlist in the infantry today.

The ad (reprinted below) was rejected.  Apparently, it was too much of a downer ("too negative") for the pimply-faced pro-war yahoos, who bitch and moan about troop defamation, and who tireless insist on the soundness of torture and the Iraq war, but who don’t have the balls to actually sign up and fight for the cause that they champion.  Imagine my surprise.
