They're heroes because they have the balls to stand up and protect your rights even after you insult them.
Without them you wouldn't have the right to rant as you do, so respect their sacrifices or shut up.
It's a shame that I even bothered to bring up serious problems that people cannot accept because it "offends people", even though it is not my
intention to offend anyone in any way.
First of all, this thread was not made to promote some sort of "hatred" of American soldiers, it is not a rant. Although, it is my "belief" that
soldiers in the American military sell out their otherwise normal moral behaviour for a regular salary, I don't hold American soldiers responsible for
the absolutely injust decisions that depict the image of the United States to the world. Your response to this is typical, promptly telling em to shut
up as they would do to you in the military if you asked any questions about their commands. Youy are trained not to question orders; it as a
chargeable offense, and I don't think you're ever going to justify the war in Iraq to any other culture in the world other than American. America is
impeding on serious boundaries here and its not against anyone's ethics that it erupt into, god forbid, conversation. This thread is here to promote
healthy discussion about why American soldiers are referred to as heroes, while people who are actually contributing to society instead of breaking
others' apart, we couldn't care less about that.
It's also subtly implying that the American government uses fear and ignorance to try to control the people. You have one of the highest percentages
of citizen-to-military ratio in the world... you also have the highest military advertisement budget and the most well known military slogans and
symbol of the "hero". In school, you have the lowest amount of required curriculum based on world studies than any other developed country in the
world. For a while now, America has just been trolling around the middle East fighting "terrorists" in locations that coincidentally
extremely high amount of natural resources that the United States has been working to conserve. Get some f___ing perspective, think about how the rest
of the world feels when this activity is happening around them. Now America is spreading global
fear, is this also an attempt to control a
whole new horizon? This is beginning to sound a lot like pre-holocaust Germany (Also curious how close it is getting to 2012, and we all know who is
REALLY "harbouring weapons of mass destruction").
Anyways, this forum was created to support discussion about possible conspiracies exactly like this. I'm talking about SERIOUS ISSUES that involve the
ENTIRE PLANET here and I would appreciate it if you would not write them off with the consideration of someone's feelings about their career path
(which clearly kills people and creates more harm than good), and their family, as this exact topic is pretty much exactly what ATS is for. If you
aren't mature enough to handle that, I suggest you leave, because saying "they fight to protect our freedoms [today]", which I see as another form of
generic military advertisement and corporatocratic brainwashing, and if you can't back it up with facts it holds no weight here since my argument has
several facts that complete a full and complete point. Besides, telling someone to shut up about the subject certainly isn't going to deter me from
the idea that there is some sort of conspiracy going on, and quite frankly it is just juvenile (not to mention sad that so many people share this
potential sociopolitical brainwashing that has direct ties to activity mid-century Germany).
Also, we all know militant soldiers have balls, we all know of them slapping them in the face of Middle Eastern people while saying "Suck on freedom,
SandN****rs!" That's an American hero -- global enemy.

So you signed up today, Just to bash US Soldiers? That make you a hero? Hell no, Like guy you think the war in Iraq is wrong? That is your buisness,
but to go after people who are doing the Job there Government (and its people) sent them to do is cowardly. Do you go down to McDonalds and heckle
them because the serve fatty foods? Do you go to walmart and Heckle them because they import from China and Not uS companies No you dont, And I bet
you wouldnt have the courage to say this to a Soldiers face either.
I did not sign up today. I'm beginning a thread, I need 20 posts to do so.
I never called myself a hero. I'm saying heroes -- in other countries -- are defined much differently than than the United States government wants
The war in Iraq is absolutely wrong according to 6 Billion people, if not more. No country wants to be invaded and forced to accept other people's
ideas on government, and the fact is, America's is doing just that (not that democracy is exactly working for America either, the veiws of the people
are clearly not expressed though the actions of the government, which is what democracy is all about), much like the Nazis did, and It's a serious
issue to the rest of the world, it's a shame you are pretty much all so blind about it. America is manipulating entire civilizations with the
instillation of fear, and killing people to support its economy and expand its dominion and resources.
Overall I think it's pretty sad how much political correctness has managed to brainwash everyone into thinking that a soldier's feelings (as a "hero"
to the public) are somehow more important than the reality that America is turning itself into a global criminal that promotes and funds the use of
weapons and force to create fear; fear as a form of control.
Is this kind of activity was happening fifty, even fourty years ago, would this not stir a rebellion in the general public? Why have we all of the
sudden become so accepting of obvious genocide that is being enforced by our own country? Just trying to put things into perspective, here. Arguments
are absolutely welcome provided they are arguments based on FACTS, in ATS spirit.
