I live on the planet where the politicians won't be the ones dragging you to court for a dishonourable discharge...

That's higher military members who will be doing that so your anger is misplaced at politicians rather than those in the military who have the power to give a real order.


If that sniper was humble enough not to write a book and cash out on the "enjoyment" of death if agree with you that they're a hero...

This guy sounds more like a sociopath imo...
He may well have helped soldiers come back alive...


But then that proclamation makes me wonder about all the soldiers who couldn't save their comrades as much as they tried to...
Do they then lose their "hero" title because their brothers passed away?


No I think this "hero" title is being overused and also the way it's being used in this sense singles out only those who saved others instead of anybody who put their body on the line no matter the end product.

Wow none of our men and uniform are doing anything to help? What about Katrina ,fukushima,38th parallel Korea ,Haiti and on and on? Maybe with your way of thinking we should bring every single one of our troops back home including our navy ,seal up our borders and tell the rest of the world to go # themselves if something bad happens?

I served in the military and that's exactly what I think.
I'm tired of my tax dollars being spent to enrich the likes of Halliburton and KBR and all the other war profiteers capitalizing on lives and blood.

Are you crazy ? I think if anyone deserves the right to write a book and make a some money it's Chris Kyle he's dead now and because of that book his wife and kids will live comfortably as they should after the sacrifices he made for his country I wish he had written and profited of a hundred novels and movies!

I might be crazy.

However, anyone has a right to pen their own book to publicise the plight of War...


When that book is filled with glorification and at least one proven falsity is when I start to question ones "heroism" and start to think they had ulterior motives than just defending their brothers in arms.



As for us Brits, we'll be fine...
Especially if we don't have to worry about "friendly fire".

Haven't you learned by now that America is in the business of war. It's not about patriotism or protecting the homeland; it's about profit for those dealing in blood and lies.

Lol


Maybe they didn't have to be part of the clean-up-the US-mess-team, if the US in the first place kept out of other nations business. Or at least were truthful to their allies, sharing ALL the intel!

Oh and pulling the troops home? I think that's a great idea.
But wait, you can't, you still have to crush Iran, or there will be no oil for little Billy and his Hummer...

I saw it and wasn't impressed. Only watched it because Clint Eastwood's films are usually great.

This one isn't. It is 100% "Good 'ol boy/Go America" propaganda, ad nauseam.

The fake baby was ridiculous....Clint is slippin' in his old age.

Maybe you should lay of the Fox "News" propaganda for a while

Fox Apologizes
There is no sharia law in Europe. It's true some Musilm's want that, but it will never happen.

At least we don't have the Patriot Act-law scrubbed down our throats...
US Democrazy at it's best..

Lol you are in total denial Europe is being taken over by Muslims .Well what can be done when a society has lost the will for self preservation and traded it in for political correctness? Thank god my forefathers were smart enough to give us the 2nd amendment so at least we can organize and fight back if things over here in America ever get as crazy as in Europe . Everyday I think God that my ancestors had the courage and fortitude to create this great nation that has been a shining beacon for the rest of the world!

Hyperbole and mean spirited homophobic post like the one below won't help convincing anyone to your point of view.




Great reply good job putting these feminized cowards in their place! I'm tired of these cowardly men with their hair color and man purses trashing my country and its heroes! !

This entire post is a prime example of the delusions some people suffer from...

Grandeur beyond that of a Narcissist...


& only 6% of Europe is Muslim... Google it!

Not really, but someone has to take care of the refugees. Which are fleeing from areas where both your & my government are participating in. :C
Many Muslims are working their asses of to participate in our society. Hat off. We even got musilms in out military. (Denmark)
Of course there are rotten apples, but you don't throw away the whole basket?

So you are saying that people that come to the US, which eventually get US citizenship, don't have the right to buy arms?
M'kay
Courage and fortitude?

I'm not your enemy. But glorifying a sniper as a hero, in a illegal war, just don't match up.
Why oh why do you keep on defending these people that put you in harms way, just so their portfolio will go up? Keep this up, and you can send your children off to the next war.. which you probably don't understand either.
I think CranialSponge wrote it best..

Lol I'm not trying to convince anybody there is no help for people who have dug their own graves through political correctness. The socialists/communist have spent 60 years educating you people there is no changing your minds. A terrorist could have your head on a chopping block and most of you here would willingly let yourself be slaughtered for your political correctness . Fotunatley people like me are still the majority here in the US even though the socialist/commies have tried their best to neuter and feminized us with their political correctness it hasn't worked we are stronger than ever!
