Someone has brought it to Jonah Goldberg's attention that not every military working dog stationed overseas is brought back to the US after his combat career has come to a conclusion. This Breitbart story comments on the moral bankruptcy of a military that leaves its canine soldiers in a foreign land while the dog's handlers return home to the states.
That certainly is a lapse of ethics on the part of the military but just the final one in a line of them. Why are these poor beasts being used by the military in the first place? They can't volunteer for the duty, their smaller minds can't comprehend the geopolitical issues that require their service. Exposing these animals to danger that soldiers can't or won't face is what is truly wrong.
