You have proved my point in your bias towards Americans and our opinions

What I have noticed is all Americans are being judged as watching Fox News as if we are to stupid to change the channel or read the newspaper or research stories online and come up with our own opinion! Or comments about the cars we drive such as humvees . As if us Americans are to stupid to take in all the information for ourselves or have any kind of introspection!


Well, according to history, George Bush kinda lost the first election, but the American people voted for him the next term. Thats not a sign of intelligence is it ?

Do you still believe that Osama Bin Laden was behind 9/11? Now is your time to think! Who made a killing ($-wise) on the 9/11 attacks?

When you have researched that, you will see propaganda was behind, just as this movie.
I understand you, you have been fooled, by your own government, and you will not admit it, ever! Because what you did for your country was somehow awesome! And speculating whether it was the right thing will lead you down a dark road. But you have to take that road, if you want the real picture. For now, you are at a X-road. I hope you make the right decision.



If Americans are so stupid and uninformed why do we have the highest standard of living in the world?


Do you now? If you break a leg, how much will you have to pay to get it fixed?
How about the US veterans of the Afghani/Iraqi war are getting any benefits? Any help? The help they are getting are redicoules, considering they are heroes? They put their life down for... what ? No soldier left behind, at the battlescene, but at home... who gives a f#ck?

Shall we talk about Vietnam Vets too ? ... i hope you realize the farce by now!


Is it cause of our stupidity lol? Now I'm not saying material wealth is everything because that would be shallow but be real about it! Really we are so uniformed that we are the most prosperous nation in the world despite the socialist/commies trying to tear us down? Maybe your just frustrated because you have met someone online who does not go along with the uninformed rubbish you are putting out!


You are being yelled at from every angle in the US media, that you should do this and that. Where is your common sense of reality? Why do you think there are so many angry Muslims targeting the US, as you say ? Does it have anything to do with the old cause and effect-scheme? What have the US (CIA) done in those countries, that make them so angry?
You really have no clue of your own history... that's why foreigners views you as stupid and arrogant.

My only bias is to your ignorant hypocritical blathering. It sounds like some of the lame ass "pep talks" I've heard drill seargents give and echoes talking head spin artists. Americans amd your opinions? Huh... When did my citizenship get stripped? Because I'm not in la la land with you you decide my opinion is objectionable in a fit of pure hypocrisy. It's hilariously ironic. I'm sorry I had to point out truth and factual errors you are perpetrating but any good American wod be happy to get the proper information to correct their track. Being offended by the truth is petty and sad. You're only doing yourself a disservice. Interesting that instead of tackling the points I made you resorted to a slur against me. Terribly unamerican iny humble opinion.

1 Chris Kyle was a soldier he had no say where he was sent to do battle !

2. Lol there is no number 2 you forgot that lol

3. How do you know he wasn't tormented by his actions could you read his mind? He took a bad situation and turned it into a good situation by saving american lives while killing the enemy on battlefield!

4 and 5 show proof he made up story about killing people in New Orleans and killing men who tried to rob him!
6. Governor sued him and won well anybody can be sued here in America it doesn't always mean justice was served!
7. He didn't give all the proceeds from his book to charity well think God he didn't because now he is dead and His family needs the money!

Just a side question. I hope i'm not derailing the thread!

You remember the "War on Drugs" ?

So.. you blame some caveguy for 9/11, and now have an excuse to invade Afghanistan.
The biggest heroin producer of the world!

So why not make sure that these warlords don't get anymore funds from the supposed drug-trade? Two birds with one stone? Win the war just like that?
Put up a bunch of drone planes, scan Afghanistan for puppy-fields. Bomb the lot! Game over!?

See, the Taliban decided to kill all poppy cultivation back in 2001, because it was against Islamic law:

source

But after the American invasion the poppy-production soared! As can be seen on the graph.
Can you explain that? Do you realize who you are really fighting for?

I have also noticed that for all the nitpicking over his book there is nothing positive being said about him!
1. Joined service to serve God and country!

2.volumteered for hardest special forces branch known to man.

3.made it through seal training wich most normal human beings including me can not handle physically or mentally!

4.when sent to battle he honored his oath and didn't act like a puss!

5.Was the best sniper who ever lived!

6.served 4 tours when only one was required!

7.wrote a great book that would ensure his wife and family would be taken care of long after his death!

8. His life and story will ensure that millions of Americans enlist in the military and learn how to fight and shoot and keep our republic strong!

Not entirely true. The MOS you choose can determine where you will or won't, can or can't be deployed.


2. Lol there is no number 2 you forgot that lol


Click the link Sherlock. It's all there.


3. How do you know he wasn't tormented by his actions could you read his mind? He took a bad situation and turned it into a good situation by saving american lives while killing the enemy on battlefield!


He bragged about how much he liked killing people, going so far as to state that if he didn't have a family he would have gone back to keep killing. So either he wasn't tormented or he lied yet again.


4 and 5 show proof he made up story about killing people in New Orleans and killing men who tried to rob him!


Are you admitting that there is proof of the lie or asking for proof. Not quite clear.


6. Governor sued him and won well anybody can be sued here in America it doesn't always mean justice was served


A jury seems to disagree with that notion. There are multiple witnesses supporting the governors story and Chris changed his story several times.


7. He didn't give all the proceeds from his book to charity well think God he didn't because now his family is dead and they need it!


That's fine. The point though is that he lied. Again.


The amount of lying done by Chris Kyle disgraces his uniform,
His team and is a violation of creed that SEAL's purport to live by. Were he still in, that would be a court martialable offense. It's vulgar and disrespectful to every honorable soldier who served. He should've been ashamed of himself. His conduct was entirely unbecoming if him.

I agree. Just because we got different opinions should not ban anyone. And i'm sure no-one will.
I think the majority here is trying to help you, take it or leave it.

Writer of this story is zaid jalini who used to work for center for American progress a left leaning agency. He was fired from cap because co worker complained he was making anti Semitic remarks so he got a job at alternateπŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

Please... As if service to your country is a testament to character and honesty. That just isnt the case. Have you comsidered thst maybe...just maybe someone in this thread may have served, been nearly as highly trained and wasnt a pussy hiding out with a spotter up to a mile away in some instances, someone who actually faced their enemies close enough to watch the light fade from their eyes? someone who has enough persona integrity that they dont recel in amd brag about those theyve shipped. Because if thats your criteria then I'm your huckleberry chief. Does that make my opinion weigh anymore or are you so caught up in hero worshipping CPO Kyle that your going to stick to your version of events til you exhale your last breath? The fact is, CPO Kyle contradicts himself multiple times, some of his stories cant be verified, some he refused to attempt to verify when asked,some things he straight up gets caught with his pants down, other instances the movie itself flat out lies about things and conflates issues surrounding the character they are selling, the legend they are creating. Because thats exactly what he is in death, a marketable character ripe for financial plundering. And thats exactly what this thread is supposed to be about before it turned into a traimwreck... Its about how the movie distorted truth barely touching on Kyle's potentially unscrupulous character.

I like the remark about doing your research. Do you take your own advice? If you had, you might have found out that while this particular link reaches back to alternet, this story is told and has been told by various outlets of varying degrees of reliability including very legitimate sources. Its not the sole domain of alternet. If thst were the case id say you were right to be suspicious. But thst isnt the case.
