Hat tip to Jonn Lilyea at This Ain’t Hell:
Andre Shepard, a Soldier stationed in Germany, decided he couldn’t do what he volunteered for so he’s seeking ‘asylum’ in Germany to get out of pulling duty in Iraq.
Here’s a picture of him with his new found friends. From left to right: Shepard, Darnell Stephen Summers, and Chris Capps, regional director (gee, they’re expanding) of IVAW in Germany.
A short background of Darnell Stephen Summers.
He volunteered for the US Army and served from 1966 to 1970. While home on leave before going to Vietnam in 1968 he became involved in the struggle to found the »Malcolm X Cultural Center« (MXCC) in Inkster Michigan, a suburb of Detroit and was one of the spokespersons for the »MXCC«. His political affiliations included membership in the Black Workers Congress, Viet Nam Veterans Against The War / Viet Nam Veterans Against The War (Anti-Imperialist), chartermember of the Malcolm X Cultural Center(Inkster Michigan).
……The formation of the League was an attempt to form a more cohesive political organ guided by the principles of Black liberation and Marxism-Leninism in order to gain political power and articulate the specific concerns of Black workers through political action. While the League was only active for a short period of time, it was a significant development in a time of increasing militancy and political action by Black workers and in the context of both the Black liberation and Marxist-Leninist movements in the United States.
Shepard opined in a Reuters interview:
“I could not in good conscience continue to serve,” Shepherd said at a news conference.
“We have destroyed nations, killed leaders, raided homes, tortured, kidnapped, lied, and manipulated not just citizens and leaders of our enemies, but of our allies as well.
“It is a sickening feeling to realize that I took part in what was basically a daily slaughter of a proud people.”
He added that after he “heard about people being ripped to shreds from the machine guns or being blown to bits by the Hellfire missiles” and “buildings and infrastructures being destroyed, I began to feel ashamed about what I was doing.
“I am remorseful for my contribution to these heinous acts, and I swear that I will never make these mistakes again.”

Now let me get this straight: Shepard has his panties in a wad over taking the war started by Islamofascist thugs, to their own turf (Iraq and Afghanistan are two good places to start), while the atrocities and wholesale slaughter of close to 3000 people on American soil by Taliban and al Qaeda shitbags gets a pass.
Saddam Hussein’s brutal regime, mass graves, WMD violations and support of terrorist groups doesn’t bother him. The Afghanistan enclave of terrorists that plotted and carried out the 9/11 attacks, along with the rest of the Middle Eastern douchebags who fund, train, and equip ‘peace loving’ jihadists, are okie dokie by him. The muslim enemy that actually does bomb, destroy nations, kill leaders, torture, kidnap, and behead, are just a ‘proud people’.
Everytime I read about a fuckstick like Shepard, I wish to hell I could trade them for one of the innocent victims who perished in the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon, or the field in Pennsylvania.
The only good thing about exposing the IVAW and all of the excrement therein, is that they will be pariahs in the eyes of those who served honorably, and eventually assigned to the dumpster of obscure history.
