here it is
You people who are bashing our soldiers are pathetic human beings who couldn't do half of what our soldiers do, you must lead horrible lonely lives with no girlfriends OR pathetic women/husbands/partners who are just as useless as you. You people should be ashamed of yourselves and God forbid there comes a day when you need the help of our soldiers, but rest assured they will help you. You all should be thrown out of this country, before that I would love to shove you to the ground and spit on you all. You sick people are pathetic spineless cry babies who are worthless, weak and disgusting. GTFO of this country pigs.

Well the problem is that we've tried this before and it didn't have good results. We left the Nazi's alone and didn't interfere and we eventually had to fight them anyways at a far greater cost than if we had intervened earlier. Same thing with Vietnam. The french could have knocked the VC back had we supplied them with more aid as they were asking for but we decided it wasn't any of our business so left them out there then went in later anyways.
Sometimes trying to prevent a problem is easier than trying to cure it later.
you need desperately to listen to this man....you got your facts a bit skewed....so does alot of people because they don't know about this......
This is the real reason why we went to war in ww1 and ww2

So america stopping the Germans( U boats off the coast of america)...Japanese( Pearl harbor and the follow invasion plans)...Russia (the bay of pigs etc...) I guess we (the military) didnt do that. we didnt stop them. We did and that is why you are able to do and say what you like. Believe me I dont think the Russians would have let you say what you are saying. Like I said denounce your citizenship move to (pick a country) and try to do or say what you just did. bet you wouldnt be able to...
Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against "the foreign invasion" in Afghanistan, before being "captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan". He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008. US and British government sources said Mr al-Hasidi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Derna and Benghazi in 1995 and 1996
