No doubt he and his ilk consider soldiers to be "disposable". Men led by their hearts to do what they consider their "patriotic duty",to be used as pawns in their massive global agenda.

I don't think it is anything to do with a guilt complex , out there killing innocent Iraqis. Maybe just a general trauma issue , and the realization that they are only idolized when in the employ of the armed services of their country. Once they are out , injured , or whatever problems they have, nobody really cares any more .

Who said I was guilty or feel guilty I surely never said I felt guilty in anyway nor did I say anyone else has a guilt issue, nor did I try to tie guilt to any country or private factions. Just because I am new does not make me guilty... or stupid. I was relating the problems most of us vets face returning home to America, hell I have buddies I met that served in the Royal Marines in Britain and they face some of the same problems we do here as far as getting out and transitioning back to a normal life, it isnt easy I am not sure if you served or not but I can surmise it is easier for some and not others.
