"To say he is weak because he doesn't support an unjust war is well...sad. He is weak because he is typing his opinion. What are you doing? Now I'm sure you're going to say I am in the military and defend the country. Good for you. But don't say that killing civilians is part of the JOB."

Protecting the nation of the United States of America from enemies foreign and domestic is A HELL OF A LOT different than having 700 bases in 100+ countries. And that's the ENTIRE POINT...........it's the "soldiers" that carry out the orders the politicians give them. If what the soldiers do is simply a "job" to them and they do it without question and without a sense of right and wrong that's a problem.
Let me ask you something......if terrorism is such a huge threat our government makes it out to be tell me why aren't terrorists flooding into our country in droves blowing up our public transportation, shooting up our schoosl and malls? Poisoning our water supply and 101 plus other ways of wreaking havoc on the American populace. After all as free as US society still is any one individual could go buy a van full of automatic weapons and go shoot up a school. I mean if I was an evil big bad muslim terrorist I sure as hell can't think of a better way to wreak terror on the American psyche than to blow up and shoot up schools full of children. Yet in 10 years NOTHING like that has happened? I guess next you're going to tell me that the US government who cannot manage to stop mexican drug cartels from running drugs through our borders on a massive scale yet they manage can stop all the evil terrorists all over the country from terrorizing US citizens? Haha! Yeah right
Logic says otherwise. and logic says the entire terrorism threat is extremely and irrationally overstated by the US government in order to wage senseless wars and control the public and the rest of the world.

I agree with EyesWideShut. Killing civilians isn't part of the job.

What I find so disturbing is a growing trend of bashing the US on this site.
Do people forget that this site is run/created/maintained/frequented mostly in part by citizens of the US?

I think those who lobby for war should be forced to fight along with their families, put straight into the most violent places to learn a lesson or (preferably) die off so peace-loving people will inherit the Earth.
