Thus confirming the previous statement of "The U.S. Military is close to a century or more ahead of both rivals and allies in Warcraft" would be true. Obviously other military's are aware of how advanced the United States weaponry is........................Everyone has "Black Programs".............it's just that, ours are the "Darkest" ones

The media in the west are like blood sucking thirsty vampires. They just can't get enough blood and will always promote any war and sell it to the people.
It's so funny how you guys NEVER apply the same standards and criticism you have w/ OUR countries to other countries.
Special Pleading is a fallacy in which a person applies standards, principles, rules, etc. to others while taking herself (or those she has a special interest in) to be exempt, without providing adequate justification for the exemption. This sort of "reasoning" has the following form:

Like any decent human being I want nothing but the best for all humans, just like you. Why else would I go out of my way to defend Iranians, simply because I know what awaits them if America does attack Iran. We are all in the same boat.

I'm not sticking up for my government, I'm sticking up for my Marine Corps. I didn't agree with the war in Iraq, but the fact of the matter is Iraqi insurgents ARE real over there. They are extremists as well, and they are willing to blow women and children up because they find our unwillingness to engage them a Western weakness. We WERE helping people over there, and they were extremely happy when we took Saddam out of power. Not everything the US does is for blood. We did help them set up a democracy. We always got "love you!" from little Iraqi kids when they saw us and we would give them some of our food and water. I believe in the values that the Marine Corps was founded on because they're basically the same values the Constitution was founded on.
I may not agree with all the decisions the politicians make but what I CAN do is follow the Rules of Engagement. I have never harmed anyone who has not shot at me first. As with any group there are ALWAYS bad people willing to hurt someone innocent or steal or some stupid # like that, but to categorize the entire military as people who rape and kill innocents all the time gets annoying. I'm automatically associated with that since this is a conspiracy site and most people tend to focus on the few negative instances rather than all the positive ones.
You'd be surprised to see how many Marines don't like Obama and are aware of what's going on. No one in my unit has ever done anything illegal.
I'm against starting a whole new war against Iran because frankly I'm tired of war. It's exhausting. But I don't like the fact that their government is also run by the extremist type.edit on 6-1-2012 by apodictic because: (no reason given)
