WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court on Monday dodged a case that sought billions of dollars for the free lifetime health care promised to some World War II and Korean War veterans.

Young recruits were told the benefits would be covered if they stayed in the service 20 years.

Those promises, made by military recruiters, were not backed up by law, a lower court ruled late last year.

The high court refused to consider overturning that decision, which would have helped up to 1.5 million people, but could have cost the government as much as $15 billion.

''It is not enough to hold parades or tie yellow ribbons,'' the court was told by the Military Officers Association of America, one of the groups supporting veterans in the case. ''We must honor their commitment and sacrifice by assuring that the government honors its commitments to them.''

Basically, what they are saying, is, after were done sending you to third world hellholes and experimenting on you, we shall discard you like used toilet paper.

The thanks of a grateful nation yet again.

I wonder why I'm not surprised. But I don't wonder why I'm disgusted.

Sadly, Phoenix, this si what happens to vets in this country. Ironically, Veterans is a group u want to keep happy. Hitler came to power because of very unhappy and mistreated world war 1 vets helped him rise. America almost had a fascist coup from a group of disgruntled vets.

Timmy mC Veigh and the DC sniper were both war vets.

And our govornemnt wonders why so many vets become anto gov, paranoid, ect?

After spending our militayr years getting sent to foreign #hole coutnries that dont want us, taking abuse, putting our lives on the line for some rich biys interest, being used as human test subjects for the most assinine and dangerous of experiments, being deliberately and callously exposed to deadly chemicals, dealing with internal violence in our ranks, lousy stadards of living, no assistance or cool of time to make the transition into civilian life, and little support when we do get out........

And now when we get old, we no longer will have anyone to treat our service related conditions.

Thing about Hitler was that his country was broke. They couldn't afford a war unless they were sponsored. Hitler was a Jew himself.
A group of elite people who hide under the shroud of Illuminati Bloodline are the major finacial powerhouses of the world. They have been well in control for welll over the last 1500yrs.
These are the individuals who funded Hitler then turned around and helped fund the united states. These particual people are the reasoning behind many of our fincial laws. Like for instance you can't take out a lartge sum of your money at once. The bank does this because they loan out about 90% overmark on all funds in the bank. This is how they make there money, mainly out of thin air.
So the wise thing for the Jewish fund raisers to do is to whip out the lower class of there people so the higher class will have more adiquate techings. There sects can remain smaller and more elite because they are more liked minded.
If you look at the U.S.A. population sheets in contrast to ethnic back ground. You will find that the white male population is desreasing and has since the 1970's.

Stupid f*cking congressmans, i'd like to see them combat the 227th Volksgrenadier Division in the Ardennes or fight off human waves of chinese soldiers on the 38th parallel!

Hitler was a Jew himself.

Wouldn't you think that the promiss that the WW2 soldiers would recieve a year's training at least, and serve only for 36 months over-seas, only to barely go through basic and be shoveled off to war for 4 years, be a larger crime?

None of the WW2 vets seem to think so....
