Soldiers are heroes because they got their limbs blown off instead of some terrorist loading up a truck full of explosives and blowing off all of
yours, or worse yet, your friends and families.
Of course everyone knows that this War on Terror™ is all about the terrorists and it has nothing to do with oil reserves, the hegemony of the
petrodollar or the final assault on what remained of the US Constitution.
Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. We had to go.
Wait a minute?!?!?!
No they didn't!?!?!
We went there to protect my family and friends from terrorists-
That didn't even exist prior to our involvement in the Middle East.
You do know about how we armed the Mujahideen during their fight against the USSR with the CIA 's Operation Cyclone.
Am I wrong?
I am so glad that we are now protecting ourselves against these terrorists.
Terrorists that our country both armed and educated
and now continue to create
by fighting a supposed war under false pretenses.
Who cares. This soldier is a hero because he got his limbs blown off while doing his job.
Maybe my kid can grow up to be just like him.
... Critical thinking skills are no longer taught in public schools.
I haven't noticed.
