Oh, just a tad. ;-)
Seriously, I don't recall any discussion on the list that dis'ed the
military. The only discussion I HAVE seen centered on the fact that the
Scout charter specifically prohibits uniforming that approximates the
military, and this has been interpreted to prohibit military-like
camoflage clothing (though others have vigorously disputed the validity
of that interpretation). Most of the negative comments in that thread
have been directed at the NON-military so-called "militia" groups.
Granted, the military has gotten more than it's share bad press of late,
but I haven't seen any discussion on this list putting down the military
for this, or for any other reason.
