That's messed up. That you would simply say move on. This is a man who has lost all fighting for you, his countrymen and you simply suggest to move on?

Simplicity is a good user name for you.



BTW for anyone doubting the validity of this, it is true.

Don't get me wrong. I have many relatives who served in the military. I feel bad for this guy and every other veteran having problems via war. But as sad as it is... It won't end the war. Nothing will until Government wants to.

Its pretty easy to see that she wasnt real thrilled with the wedding, but did because it was the 'right thing to do'.

That poor guy, the daily physical pain he must endure is one thing... but to lose the woman he loves over something so beyond his control, is unimaginable to me.

Wish i could give the guy a big hug.

Here's a question. Would you rather die than look like that for the rest of your life? I know some people cherish life regardless of stuff like appearance, but others...it would be really difficult to go out in public anytime.

We had a guy that looks almost exactly like this guy come into our trophy shop, except he was missing a hand. Poor dude.

Don't get me wrong Listo, I get the point of your post, but it's a sad fuckin' time when the majority of Americans don't give a shit about the human beings the grand ‘ole “U.S.A” sends to a foreign land to risk their lives. They’d rather be watching re-runs of the Maury Povich show to see if there was anyone they recognized from their block.
This is a sad and very real story of man who sacrificed everything and saw the worst returns on his investment.
I feel for him and I only wish that the statement “Some give all, all give some” were true for every American.

Now let’s send this thread to DC.

Considering that's the age range of the person we're usually sending to suffer mutiliation on the opposite side of the earth in our name, it's a necessary viewpoint to hear.

Nothing will end war until those that profit most from conflict have to put their asses and the asses of their children at the front lines. As long as someone else is paying the tab and they can go home to their country clubs and mansions, shit won't change.

Well, both statements kind of cause a reaction inside me, maybe because I myself like many on here have experienced wartime service overseas.

As for his assertion that war should only be fought in the event of an invasion, its obvious that when it gets to that point you have neglected to take care of the issue sooner, as was the case with OBL, 9/11 was an invasion, a real one.

As for your comment about the age of the troops we send to war, yea its mostly younger kids / adults.

The thing is we haven't had a draft in this country in 40 years. There isn't one person serving in the military right now that doesn't know they signed or re-upped during a time of war and what the risks are so to put that on the government is kind of chicken shit. This isn't Vietnam where we drafted kids to go die somewhere.

Are some kids signing up not knowing full on what they are actually getting into? Yea, but exactly who's fault is that?

What a remarkably stupid post, even for you.

Many of the men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq are in their 30's and 40's. Fail one.

Add to that, age has absolutely no bearing on the matter. If most of the men overseas weighed 170 pounds, would you say weighing 170 pounds gives you special insight while you run your sick, twisted little liberal mouth about war? Fail two.

Decisions about affairs of state and military matters require wisdom, not years. Obviously there is a shortage of the former both in government and dorm rooms. Fail three.

Many brave men and women have given much so you can squat in your dorm room and prattle your nonsense. Hopefully you are at least grateful for that.

9/11 was not an invasion. It was an act of terrorism. But I digress.

My heart breaks for innocent men we send into wars like the shit we chose to embroil ourselves in in the Middle East. The fact that they volunteered for military service does virtually nothing to soothe my nerves.

The military is like the only place for any sort of career for many of the men (and women) who elect themselves for it. I'm proud that we offer an opportunity for many of them when they wouldn't have found one elsewhere. The military has a great track record for rejuvenating lives.

It feels a lot like we're taking advantage of them, to me, when we send them to the other side of the planet to die and we aren't even willing to pay a tax to pay for the war, and do our part to sustain the nation they're defending.

A terrorist act on your soil that kills over 3,000 people is an invasion, if you can't see that......

The first bolded part is a very small part of the military, seriously. Most are people who enlist feel a desire to do something for their country and do feel a "calling". But I digress I suppose.

The second part, I completely agree with. Before this war there had never been tax cuts at a time of war.

I support military action in severe humanitarian circumstances where our intervention was actually welcomed.

This is, by far...the most important part of your post. It's also what blinds you to the bipartisan ambitions, perhaps even unintentional, that will destroy this nation...unless the rest of us figure it out.

My Grandma used to say, "Shit, or get off the pot!" Sage advice from an under-educated simpleton who knew more about what's wrong with this country than many much more "educated" clowns in D.C.

You can't be half-pregnant...either we are "in," or we are not. Wars fought half-ass-ed from political and ideological perspectives waste the sacrifice of our soldiers. For what it's worth, the republicans USED to seem to have a better understanding of that than most dems.

During the Cold War, dems seemed willing to sacrifice soldiers and resources in the name of ideology than reps; since, George W....well, it's the reps who seem to prefer ideology over resources and reality.

Unless reps man-up and decide to PAY FOR, rather than bankrupt the nation, at the expense of their ideology....at least the dems have a rhetorical commitment to trying to right the ship.

It's why Romney and the reps will lose in November; and why, in an otherwise historical year in which an incumbent SHOULD lose...but won't.

Crazy chit.... :shake:
