Bout Time stop being so inconsistent.
You're against war in Iraq, so you don't have the RIGHT to even COMMENT about our soldiers, how dare you call them heros when you spit on the
jobs they must do.
"You're a hero mr. soldier, but I spit upon you for comming back from vietnam...." Bull...
The reason why Astronauts are the real heros, and soldiers are just no longer worthy of the title, is because WAR is out dated, exploration is our
future, and when those dumb politicians get that through their head, we'll only need a small army to fend off and hunt down terrorists, because no
nation would go to conventional warfare with a nation that commits itself to exploration of such a heavenly place as the heavens.
These astronauts did more for Humanity then the "boys" in the helicopter crash.
I'm sorry, but I'm to the point of limiting passing out the title of hero to people who die saving someone (not what dying in a helicopter crash
does, that's just bad luck, no different than the guy who dies in a car crash down the street, is he a hero too?) or to those who actually try to
make a difference to all humanity.
Which is exactly what NASA has been trying to do for 40 years, but since Apollo they've had a shoe string budget.
