I think what the problem is, is soldiers have to follow orders. Thats just how it works, and if they had a choice on whether or not to follow them, our military structure would fall apart. The soldiers just follow orders, it is our leaders that tell them where to go. Should we be spitting at our troops? No, this has nothing to do with them. We should be spitting at congress, our military leaders, the ones giving the orders. But then you have to be sure about what you are doing. Do we really know why we are so imperialistic, are there hidden motives involved, or is it all about power. The problem is, americans aren't very bright. The only one we vote into office are the ones on tv. All you have to do, to limit who you want as a office holder is decide whether or not they go on tv. When we have some type of system set up, where there is no parties, and there is equal marketing opportunity for all candidates, will we have some type of chance of really controlling our country.

Don't let your aligator mouth overload your mockingbird A$$. We have 10,000 troops who have recently returned from both countries. The only thing between you and ud is air and opportunity. As I have said before come get some.
but, i can guarantee 85 percent of these "troops" u call them, will be locked up n prison or commit other acts of violence! so take your tuff guy attitude to the slammer solder!!!
