no offense to plucky but would this still be here if the avatar wasnt so hot? would it have received this much attention?
and even though it has, the time is well up, so whys it still on the main page?
ive seen many threads started and many threads taken down much quicker then this since ive been browsing ats, why is this one getting such special
attention and lasting up on the main page as long as it has?
and shouldnt the military have things in place to punish members of the military that do things like this?
isnt he outing some sort of classified information?
if its not classified information isnt he using his military position in a way not becoming of a member of the military?
or are all of our military guys just allowed to put a video online making any statement they feel like?
if that is allowed, as much as i hate to say it, hasnt our freedom of speech sort of backfired on us?
i mean thats an awful lot of power for one person, many civilians hold a lot of respect for the military and many would take anything they say as
gospel, shouldnt they have to be a bit more careful of things they may say?
and even though we have freedom of speech, dont the men in the military have to abide by a different set of rules, i was under the understanding that
those in the military didnt exactly have that same level of freedom of speech that we have?
on top of that, how many mentally unbalanced people have been severely affected by this "warning"?
a few years ago i would not have ever thought to make a reply post like this
but recently the amount of fear mongering has become almost unbearable, when will the american people say enough is enough?
