my country or warriors

You have to wiggle a bit to make room for those of us who are not war "warriors" . such dramatics.

Some of us are just mums, dads, teachers, gardeners, IT help desk, Car sales, Grocery store clerks, Plumbers, electricians, kids, walk mart cashiers, bank tellers, truck drivers......
And we AREN''T at war with you. I personally just want you to be happy not so angry. gheessh.

The Kurds should have known better than to let somebody like this in combat. Frankly if you do not have a military back ground you should find some other way to help out.


Bullets do not care how much military training one has.... Anyone who picks up a gun for war knows the risks. It's no different than young recruits thrown into war after boot camp.... even the most harden combatants cannot dodge bullets.

I have ZERO idea what you speak of.
I AM an artist and THAT went nowhere too.
JUST like when Desert Storm made me sick and I could stay in the Cav.
NEITHER have anything to do with my expression of respect for this guy however.

He died fighting for what he believed in. Nothing more Honorable.



So, by those standards, ISIS fighters are honourable as well?
They die fighting for what they believe in.

Makes you think, doesn't it?

Seems to me...it was not "God" speaking but a manifestation of acute psychosis.



What's the psychological term for the condition that affects people like you, often atheists, and drives them to post unnecessary, asinine comments like that instead of honoring a good man?

No…one discriminates between a war based on aggression and a war based on self-defense and a fight against evil.

The ignoramuses in ISIS don’t even realize the Quran says

THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION

So, by those standards, the U.S troops who died/were injured in Iraq/Afghanistan etc were dishonourable?

My personal opinion is that all soldiers are dishonourable. They all contribute to the problem.

WOW.

My personal opinion is that keyboard warriors like you are much more dishonorable.

The Allied troops who fought and died liberating Nazi concentration camps were dishonorable and contributing toward the problem? People fighting now against ISIS who behead hundreds and commit blatant evil atrocities are dishonorable and contributing toward the problem? Who the hell do you think you are making statements like these?

You moral relativist keep challenging the post about it being honorable to die for something you believe in... But you're missing one big thing:

There is EVIL in this world. There may not be a clear cut good, and some of the people running our countries may not be that great, but they're certainly committing less blatant, obvious evil right before our eyes. There may not be that clear cut GOOD. But there is certainly evil and MORE EVIL. I'll take the "dishonorable soldiers contributing toward the problem" by fighting the MORE EVIL anyway over keyboard warriors like you that sit around and judge soldiers. War is a consequence of our BROKEN, sinful WORLD. Wake up and smell the reality because if it could ever go away, it sure as hell isn't going away any time soon. Better to fight against the MORE EVIL--and give my respect and honor to those who serve and die--instead of sitting behind a computer saying good people are "contributing toward the problem." Sheesh.

I had a few friends die in combat on my last deployment. I know how rough it can be on the families..And those of us who returned without our friends and mentors.

War is where good men and women go to die, some go to see awful things that affect them forever, some go to lose their childhood and become men and women of character and integrity.

Some still go and come back to always remember those who died so they can come home and keep their memory alive.

War sucks. Not being remembered sucks more. This man, who on his own went to fight a truly brutal enemy, deserves to be remembered. This is what courage of conviction looks like. I only wish there were more like him in abundance to be examples to everyone.

Even some one straight out of boot has a much better chance of surviving than just handing somebody a weapon and saying good luck. This poor guy was doomed from day one. Just like that British actor who the Kurds keep kicking out the front lines. These guys are nothing but, soon to be liabilities to trained units. If they want to spend a couple months training them that is one thing. Clearly they are not, in fact the Kurds seem to be getting tired of these guys showing up.

Your own words/logic are your Achilles heel. You defeat yourself.

Reply to: cavtrooper7

There is a distinct difference between a soldier and a Warrior.

A Warrior, while engaged in any conflict, applies respect to all he/she encounters in Martial Matters. Anything less is DISHONOR

A soldier reacts obediently to any order from his direct superior.

Not really no.
WE REFUSE orders all the time.
The world is in fact QUITE GRAY,black and white ideas don't work in war,choices are made off the cuff all the time ,particularly for scouts.
If you try fighting by the book in a Cav unit you PROBABLY won't make it.
It 's the nature of recon.
