Seekerof, I sometimes wonder exactly what it is you seek... You talk as if you already know the minds and hearts of everyone else. In fact, you talk as if you know just about everything. What could you possibly be seeking? You could never impart wisdom or insight to me because your words are dripping with resentment and sarcasm. Your message escapes me because all I can hear is the anger.

In their hearts, this group is fighting for our freedom. They have the best intentions at heart.
The people that could become soldiers could do something to better their homeland. Such as being firefighters or some other service job in a similar vein.

Are you suggesting that there be no military in the US?
Regardless of how much you hate this war and Bush 'n company, you still have to understand that there IS a need for a military....with people in it. It's been like that thousands of years, if the US did not have a military (with people in it)....then there would be NO U.S. today. In fact, there would have never been a US...or an England for that matter if any everyone did "something to better their homeland. Such as being firefighters or some other service job in a similar vein."
If there were peace on earth, then there would bo no need for militaries.

Benevolentheretic, if you think the insurgents are so right, so victimized, so innocent, their ideology so pure, America so evil, I have a suggestion: join them. We don't need Americans cheering when a poor soldier get's blown up by an IED. That's heartless and selfish. Not to mention hypocritical. If that IED blew up your starbucks I'm sure you would agree that your own behaviour in regards to the troops is an outrage. I'm totally against this war, but anybody who thinks it's ok for soldiers to die and be mistreated is frankly an jerk.
