I only read the first page of this thread, but that was more than enough to get me sick. While I admire the original poster's patriotism, he is
obviously misguided. It would be stupid to pull all of our troops that are stationed around the world back to the US. We don't need Russia, China,
or any other world power that doesn't share our interests, moving troops into the regions we were previously based in. The last thing we need to do
is give rival nations the opportunity to spread their power, influence, and corrupt ideology to the nations of the world that require our protection.
I don't think I need to even address the nuclear weapons issue, as anyone can see how obsurd and inhumane it would be to use nuclear weapons at this
stage in our war on terror.
Now to the self-hating Americans who are actually trying to justify the terrorists' reasoning for flying commercial airliners into civilian
targets... You should be ashamed of yourselves. Regardless of our foreign policy, we have never purposly targeted Arab or Muslim civilians in such a
brutal fashion. There is no justifiable reason for intentionally killing thousands of innocent men, women and children who are not themselves engaged
in any conflict. Those of you who sympathise with the murderers who carried out the 9/11 attack and are hoping for an encore should be left alone in
an NYC firehouse for a few minutes with a crew of 9/11 heroes and a rubber hose.
Furthermore, it is pathetic that anyone would mock or question the behavior or performance of our men and women in uniform. They are putting their
lives on the line not only to defend this nation and your rights and freedoms, but also to provide those very rights and freedoms to people whom they
don't even know. The bravory, honor and valor that our armed forces display on a daily basis is far greater than anything any of you self-loathing
Americans have done or ever will do in your lifetimes.
To question the intentions of our government and our military, not only in Iraq or Afghanistan, but even in Vietnam, is sad. Regardless of the
mistakes made, no country and no group of men and women in the history of this world have ever sacrificed more for the safety and freedom of others.
To put your life on the line so that a young girl who you will never even meet can have the opportunity to cast a vote in an election or go to school
is something I cannot even fathom. How anyone would mock or question the integrity of these people is a disgrace to the millions of soldiers who have
paid the ultimate price so that others after them could live better lives. Just because a few tanks or helicopters had "666" written on them does
not take away from the noble mission which they are on. I doubt 666 even means anything in Islam.
I'm sorry but just knowing someone who died on 9/11 and knowing people who have gone off to foreign lands with their lives in danger, it sickens me
when I read the liberal propaganda that some people spew on here.
