I have no excuse to address you.

My view as a 24 year veteran with two tours in Vietnam is that the soft underbelly of each generation speaks the loudest. They cry and pout on camera as much as they can. This is in hopes they never have to prove their metal or their true intellect.

I have the fortune to have two brothers-in-law who know more about Vietnam and military affair than I do...so they say! Neither having served one day in the military. They inform me that they would never use "waterboarding" even if their lives or troops lives depended on the outcome. This is the first indication of the arrogance that half of my generation possesses. They refer to the "Ken Burns" documentary as the source of their new found wisdom. They inform me of the misdeeds and mistakes of my service at any provocation. I wonder if they had PTSD after watching that Vietnam documentary.

The truth is that our military is going to do just fine in any future conflict. The soft underbelly has been around in every war. The true enemy of our military is Washington, DC. They micro-manage all aspects of any conflict with ridiculous rule of engagement and bad political considerations. Korea, Vietnam and the first gulf war are prime example.

If want to hear the snowflakes squeal, just start the draft and include women... there would be riots in the streets by every leftist group in existence.

This is just my two cents from an old soldier.

You sure find it easy to come up with excuse after excuse to not address things though

Take it easy on him.

Yet here you are, still addressing me. Not my points, mind you. Just me.

It's almost as if you think if you get the last word in, you'll have won the internet for the day. But being a tough old guy, I'm sure that can't be it. Tough old guys don't need to have the last word.

Who said anything about fitting in? Just pointing out there are different people in all generations.

Ok. So you quoted the saying in my avatar. Good job. I'm proud of you.

So what is your point?

OOPS still freaking me out with your profile pic.


You're freaked out by a picture? Do you need a safe space?

I think it's pretty obvious there is no point, just an endless quest to have the last comment in the conversation to win the internet points.

Who knew tough old guys needed internet points?

I wonder how the article writer thinks about the hippies from the 60s?

Make love not war sounds like something a snowflake would say.

Tough call, as they most likely didn't wear tight pants. At least not often.


Yamamoto Tsunetomo, author of The Hagakure (The Book of the Samurai), also used make up. He could gut you in one strike but he's obviously a fairy according to some people.


Oh here we go!
Yamamoto Tsunetomt is quoted as stating, "gives random instructions on how to behave properly as a homosexual samurai and how to take on a gay relationship with another samurai “the right way.”" whitedragonawa.wordpress.com...
Yeah, I bet he did wear make-up.
What ever.

My point? You insulted me. I should be asking you that Question.

Safe from your profile yes maybe. In general no.

Do you like using leftist tactics to annoy people, it seems you do.
