Screw it. I agree. Im not gonna sit here and agree anymore with these people who HATE ME because I'm a soldier. Why should I admit I've done wrong, I havent. I have NEVER and would NEVER hurt a child or women, and in iraq I didnt hurt a SINGLE ONE. Not even in crosfire or by accident. Neither did my wonderful lil sis or any of my buddies. This whole thread I been agreeing with yall because I can barely defend myself (because of brain damage, im not dumb or anything though). F it. No more of that.

These people go on and on until I just say "I agree" and then all of a sudden everything is fine? No sorry, thats not fine with me. You might not realize it but you are taking advantage of me as my brain doesnt work right anyore and I have trouble debating! Yall are forcing me to agree with you because I cant figure out how to defend myself. This is BS its like I'm not allowed to have my own thoughts.

Yall have NO CLUE how frustrating it is not being able to express my thoughts and viewpoints.

And dont say "maybe you shouldnt comment then". Sorry but I'm a human being in a free country and I can have a opinion and from now on I WILL stick by that opinion. No more agreeing with you just to appease you.

Another thing I've noticed is through this whole thread I've been one of the only people attempting to understand other views. Hardly any of these people have done the same for me (a few of yall have though,and thank you im not mad at you). They just tell me I'm wrong and stuff. It pisses me off.

Let me think myself, please.

Hardly any of these people know anything about war. Everything they know is from conspiracy sitea and anti american propaganda, Alex Jones and his little worthless groupies, and freaking wacko ass youtube videos.

Also I'm not looking for ANY sympathy for my brain damage or dead sister. I'm just tellin yall why this is hard for me.

Alright back to work for me...

peace



Edit: I have literally edited this post over 30 times now to completely say everything I was thinking. Thats a example of how freaking hard it is for me to collect my thoughts and write them out.

This guy is an idiot.

All I can say is there are soldiers who deserve to go home and this guy isn't one seeing as how he walked right into a trap. He's also being fed and clothed. Doesnt' seem to me that he's in bad shape.

As long as his head is still attached unlike many other marines who were captured AGAINST THEIR WILL- I have no pity for this irresponsible recruit. You dont walk off of your base and away from your country then expect us to come and rescue you.

I refuse to acknowledge this man as a soldier seeing as how he gives our vets and current soldiers a bad name.


where do you get off being so insensitive? what if it was one of your loved ones? its not only him thats afraid and hurting you know, there is a ripple effect, his love ones minds are also in turmoil, like i said before, im muslim myself, and i do not agree with some of the attrocities that have gone on, on both sides!!! but come on, theres no need for that, have a bit of respect man.... and as for people that keep using the name retard to describe others, i am asking you nicely to please stop, as i have a cousin thats retarded and its no different from making racist or derogatory remarks...
peace!!!

You need to win the hearts and minds the rest is easy, but even with lower educated fantasized people its just as difficult as engaging a full blown firefight.

haha yeah I admit this is EXACTLY how I feel too. I care for own my own country, my own people, myself, and my wife and child before ANYONE in this world. We come first, imo.

Also atleast we are being honest... these anti america people on here PRETEND to care about the middle east, but the reality is they just have a grudge against the us gov. Its so f'ing obvious, most these people dont even try to hide it. They have a america hating agenda and use this middle east sympathy thing to push their filthy agenda.

Yall could care less about muslim people. For instance if you guys could go to iraq and protest marines would you? No you wouldnt and if YOU did the muslims would shoot holes in your bodies just like they do us marines. THESE PEOPLE ARENT INNOCENT!

I'm PROUD to be a dumb american. PROUD! Atleast we can do what we want here...

Like I said a few posts above... nomore understanding apoligetic mr nice guy from me anymore. I have done nothing wrong I'm not apoligising for crap.

Only reason I was agreeng with them was cause they were forcing me too pretty much. Theyd go on andon until I agreed with them. They knew I took a bullet in the head and I had brain damage, I told them, and that made them pick on me even more!

I WILL stand by my beliefs from now on and I WILL be PROUD of them.

I agree... I could care less about how smart someone is. I care about the PRINCIPLES they live by, I care about COUNTRY, I care about FAMILY.

Judging people b how smart they are is for arrogant people

I care about the PERSON rather than brains.

BTW welcome to my friend list,dude.

When i refer to hearts and minds i do not directly point at the people themselves but rather to the people the consider worthy of leading them. Change the mind of people they look up to and your done way faster than before. Unfortunantly the reason why certain things have dragged on was to also test new technology on a ground zero level. How else are you going to achieve advancement without testing your equipment in real battle situations.

your right it is a testing ground..it has been since Shwarzkof..

Now that were in over our heads,what to do?

pull out and lock the boarders down? to keep the beast we made off our backs

or


bring our boys home,level the place,apologize to the world and march on..And the world would probably benefit from it..

Quite a political tightrope to walk..

God bless this soldier and his family who are waiting at home praying for his release. My heart goes out to them and their time in need. I hope he gets out alive an unharmed. No human being deserves to be treated in this fashion.

It was good to see his parents had the logic to request the media to keep everything very quiet and not make a carnival of everything.

There are many lessons to be learnt when one studies history.

Good point Tristar. I think it is a brilliant PR strategy on the part of the parents requesting the media to keep everything quite. If the coverage remains stagnant maybe the terrorists will just give up because they aren't getting the attention they expected by taking the soldier hostage. In other words, to keep his captors and the Taliban marginalized. Hopefully, they will come to the conclusion that the hostage is useless and drop him off in the middle of the country at night with a cellphone to call his command.

Yes, that seems the most possible thing that will happen, unless some reporters decide to drum it as an AMERICAN issue and place that mans life in real danger. Perhaps its time that families who lost loved ones through media hype should take those very media houses to the high court in requesting millions. I am very sure that there would be many thousands who would support such a move.
