Since I am the one that originally developed the “no veteran/military bashing rule” on CU let me explain the intent to you.
During the initial invasion of Iraq the Liberals would attack American military men and women for being dumbshit lackeys of Bush. I and others explained that the military people were doing their duty and if the Liberals had a problem with the reasons for invading Iraq they needed to take it up with the civilian leaders that issued the orders. We felt it was demeaning to the brave men and women that served to be used as hateful pawns for the filthy anti war morons.
The rule was never designed to protect any veteran or active duty personnel from criticism for legitimate reasons. It was not to protect anybody from challenge when they said something really stupid. It was not designed to protect anybody that put the interest of a foreign country ahead of the interest of the US. It was simply a rule to keep the hateful Left Wing agenda off of CU.
Now since I stepped down from my Admin role on CU other people may have expanded or changed the rule but that was the original intent established probably six or seven years ago.
