Soldier Attacked Outside Military Base in Washington State

As hear on KTTH AM radio, Sytman and Boze morning show, Pierce County Sheriff's Department and local Tacoma area law enforcement officers are looking several individuals who "allegedly" attacked a National Guardsmen in uniform as he was walking into a convenience store. Sytman and Boze said that a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and someone asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

Apparently the Guardsman indicated that he had. The individuals exited their vehicle brandishing a weapon and proceeded to beat the guardsman.

As they left the scene, the attackers called the guardsman "a baby killer."

The driver as described as a white man, 25-30 years old, with short blond hair, wearing a black T-shirt and jeans. The passengers were white males about the same age with red baseball hats and red sweatshirts during the attack. Apparently a $1,000 reward is being offered.

Also reporting the story, Tacoma News Tribune: Guardsman attacked, beaten in Parkland.

Investigators suspect the man was attacked because of his uniform. "The indication is it’s because he was a soldier," sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

"There are some specific questions (the attackers asked) that were military related and what his involvement in the war was."

Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to arrests and charges filed in an attack against a uniformed National Guard soldier in Parkland. Callers remain anonymous. Reach Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.

Are our Pacific Northwest peace activists and left wingers changing tactics, or, were there other reasons for the attack?

Stand by for more information.

Update: Excuse me, Bos'un. This is Rosemary here. I was going to post this elsewhere, but I see you've beaten me to it again. May I please add mine to yours? Why, thank you.

Those of us with a brain between our ears have had to listen the garbage spewn across our TV's (for those who still them on) as if these were 'peace' protests. They are not. I, for one, refuse to allow this charade to continue.

Over at Little Green Footballs, I found this article: National Guardsman Brutally Attacked. I beg you to read it. Then I dare you to show your true colors. Are you a patriot or a communist-fascist-sympothizer? How will we know?

These are the brave souls that reported this story. Show them your support, and ask if there is any new information. Then, go around in your town and find another person who gets as angry as I am at this happening (and it is not reported except for the local area).

This must not be allowed to stand. We must fight back with PRO-VICTORY protests. I do not care that you have a job. Those people are dead because they had a job on September 11, 2001, or have you forgotton?
