Bob Miller is one of the USA's most controversial authorities on war and foreign policy. As a harsh critic of the Bush regimes of past and present, Bob Miller has been reviled by authoritarians and dismissed by the establishment. Yet it is his kind of opinion that packs the greatest punch, and rings true with those similarly affected by the illegal Iraq war of modern times.
In his latest non-fiction book, "Kill Me If You Can, You SOB" Bob Miller lays bare his memories from his time in the Vietnam war, fighting passionately for a war in which he did not believe. According to Veteran turned author Bob Miller, the young men and women forgoing their lives for the war in Iraq are paying the ultimate price for political madness, and for the personal greed of George Bush and his Whitehouse cronies. Whether you love him or hate him, Bob Miller's word is respected for its lingering poignancy and compassionate undertones, and his extensive work in campaigning and activist has seen him gain enhanced recognition over the last few years.
A former Republican candidate for the Senate, Bob Miller is not one to be bound by party politics. He speaks his mind, and never intentionally toes the party line against his own beliefs. It is this down to earth honesty and unashamed integrity that has won Miller fans and enemies in equal measure, and has brought his book to mainstream audiences with an open mind. As Bob Miller says in his heartfelt plea to the young led to their military slaughter, "If the military-industrial complex and the incomprehensibly corrupt three branches of the U.
S. government want to wage war on the world, let them hire damn mercenaries. Stay home young, irreplaceable American and live. Don't break your mother's heart." Bob Miller's "Kill Me If You Can, You SOB" doesn't fit the stereotype of your typical Vietnam war read.
Rather than blowing hot air about the regime and the morals behind the war, Miller somehow turns the horrific and serious subject of service life into a hilariously funny insight into 'real life' experiences, which some would argue creates a more vivid image than any work of fiction. Disagree with him? That's ok. Bob Miller challenges those that dismiss his work to approach his latest book with an open mind, guaranteeing that whatever the political and ideological preconceptions in operation, Miller's real life diary entries will be read in line with the truth and the actualities of this horrific war. Whilst "Kill Me If You Can, You SOB" has received critical claim, it has alienated so many on misconceptions from its title and media portrayals of its rebel author.
Whether you've ever considered what goes on behind the scenes, or you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in conditions of extreme danger where courage comes in the job description, "Kill Me If You Can, You SOB" is more than enough food for thought.
