Dear US Veterans,
You're NO better than Islamic Terrorists.

That’s the message Joyce Carol Oates sent to veterans on Thursday when she suggested a repugnant moral equivalence between Islamic terrorists and those who serve in the U.S. military. “We are so very superior to the “suicide-bomber” cult–are we?” she asked. “US does not transform young vulnerable hopeless into human weapons of war?”
Many Twitter users weren’t buying the slimy attempt to inoculate herself against criticism with a couple of question marks.
How about these questions, Joyce?
Whatever’s wrong with her, it’s time for Oates to seek help.
So do we.
These Twitter users say they served the country and were far from “vulnerable” and “hopeless.”
