I feel absolutely no sympathy for any troops who are deployed overseas. There's nothing heroic in it.
I'll remember you said that in the event America ever comes under enemy fire.
I'll come to your home and see which hole you're hiding in.
Firstly, I don't live in America. If anyone comes rolling down my street, then before I die, all I plan to do is to snipe at least two of them. That way, I've got a 2 to 1 kill ratio. Maybe I'll try and take out a few more, seeing that my kids are too young to fire a gun. I'm not going to be invaded. I'll be dead first, taking out as many invaders as I could.
Secondly, if America's borders were under fire, then I would expect America to fight back and repel the invaders. Just as the Iraqi 'insurgents' are doing against the American invaders and just as the Taliban are doing against the Invaders in Afghanistan.
Anyway, I won't drag the thread off topic. McCain, bombing civvies - yeah right, pin a medal to his chest. He was a tool for the war-pigs and now he wants to be the chief war-pig.
These people don't grow any more mature than children squabbling in a school yard. Watch school age children fight amongst themselves, over nothing and realise that the entire planet's politicians do exactly the same thing. At least the weapons manufacturers and the bankers still make their profits...
