I'm sorry to hear that.

It is men like your father who are the true inspiration.

You act like the man was there to exterminate people. , but you could at least show him respect. Never soapbox a warrior.


Exactly. It's far more wise to disagree with the failed leadership 30 years ago that caused a need to send US troops to Afghanistan than to disrespect the US soldiers who served.

Jimmy Carter and the CIA accusing Russia of invading Afghanistan then arming Islamic radicals to kill 14,000 Russian troops, when in fact Russia rejected initial requests by the moderate Islamic gov't for help and were in fact invited to put boots on the ground in Afghanistan.

Then we get September 11th and Bin Laden, facilitating a need to send US troops to do the same job Russian soldiers were already doing fighting extremists in the same country. If you want to disrespect Jimmy Carter for lying about a Russian invasion and the CIA for arming the Mujahadeen, fine, but disrespecting the service of US soldiers who did a job that had to be done is....I don't have the words really.


However. Most servicemen fail to rationalize and think and develop a philosophy related to their military service in volunteering to serve a nation which donated money and arms to fund terrorist like the Mujahadeen and then sign up to fight terrorists elements in Afghanistan which the US funded after they attacked US.

September 11th sort of seems like Divine Justice after funding the Mujahadeen to kill 14k Russian soldiers. Why fight against Divine Justice, if Osama Bin Laden had done anything than be the Hand of God in killing US children who died in those airplane, 6 children died that day, then Osama would have deprived himself of the Spirit of God and would have been living in fear. If he had betrayed, or Cross the Crown, that Christ was nailed to Osama would have lived in fear.

He was not in fear. He was not experiencing anxiety. He was not a mental patient, not on any medication. Therefore I have to conclude that Osama's actions were justified, even though he murdered children. But this was no different than American sanctions that starved 1 million Iraqi children. And this was the motivation that Osama listed as justification for murdering American children.
