Well if he's in the military I'm sure it's gay porn that he is into...
Isn't that why most 'guys' join the military.....so they can play 'rump ranger' with their 'bunk buddies.'.....
You assume too much. Perhaps its time for you to stop hiding behind your computer and go enlist and find out firsthand the stress that being a soldier can sometimes bring. You my friend need to stop generalizing soldiers as criminals. Like many of our ATS members I have had my boots on the battlefield and its not easy. Sometimes judgment calls have to be made which later look like major errors. Saying goes "hind sight is 20/20". I personally never tortured anyone, raped anyone, robbed anyone or maimed (intentionally since my aim when I engaged the enemy was to kill) anyone. I did however send folks to their respective Gods. But that's because we were playing a game called, "I'll kill you if you don't kill me first". Seriously join the Army and get into the infantry so you can be in the thick of it. Then when you are doing urban combat in some place that you cant even spell and folks are shooting at you, throw down your gun and go talk it over with them. See how many steps you get before you are Swiss cheese. BTW the next post you make should include a big fat thank you to past soldiers and militias for securing your freedom to speak your mind at all. They did that, not the politicians.
As for the OP, nice poem. Thank you for that. I will have to forward that to all my friends at the VA, VFW and American Legion. And I agree 100% that we need to show better support for our troops.
