Tell me Ooz, what you know of the riots that happened here in Australia. And whatever you tell me, I will tell you that you are WRONG!!!! Why? Because
I saw them happen first hand. I wasn't involved, but I have lived in the area my whole life. And so has my family. And I can tell you now, whatever
you THINK you know of the riots, will be way off the mark.
And to be honest, I applaud your family for fighting the Russians. I am really honest about that. Your family and friends did what they had to do to
defend their honour, their land, and their country. Sure, the money and weapons from the US would have helped out a fair bit, but it was on the back
of hard work that the Russians were defeated. I have read alot into what happened during that war, and it was pretty disgraceful how the Americans
acted, but that's just how they are.
And to be honest, I can respect YOUR families contribution towards the war in Afghanistan, so how bout you throw a little respect OUR way???? I have
had at least 1 family member fight in every major war of the 20th Century, and even my old man who went to Vietnam has said on numerous occasions how
fubar the war in Afghanistan and Iraq is. But the simple fact is, if an old, retired soldier who happens to live in the West can agree with your point
of view, how bout you show some freaking respect for what THEY had to go through?????
Now can you understand WHY the Aussies, Kiwi's, British, Yanks, Canadians, Indians, Polish, Dutch, etcetera etcetera get so frigging pissed off when
things like this happen???? Sure, the anger will subside, but the lack of bloody simple respect is still there........
