It's hard for me to see anyone fighting in a war that's proven to be illegal. Well, iraq defenitely...the rest of our wars...???
The only recent illegal war was Libya. Congress voted on Iraq and Afghanistan.
I say we don't need to be there, they did not attack us!
Many vets would agree with you here. Congress should not declare war unless there is a REAL (not perceived) threat.
People then bring up college and a job for those that aren't able or privileged enough to go to college. My question...how far will you go to
sell your soul for a job or a college education...so I'm sick of that excuse.
Enlisting is not selling your soul!
Quote one person who said they would kill anybody overseas for free college.
VERY FEW people sign up because they WANT to go to war…and most of those who say they do are usually the biggest blowhards and are ultimately proven
to be cowards.
The only other thing that makes me sad....vets that come back and are glorified Hero's. I know many Americans...that deserve that same
admiration and more for what they do.
You don’t have to be in war to be a hero. Heroism happens every day here in America and abroad. That shouldn’t diminish the heroism by our troops
though. You shouldn’t be offended when a military member is proclaimed a hero. Why can’t you see that risking your life for your beliefs IS
heroism? Is it because you don’t share that person’s beliefs?
That’s pretty selfish, no?
Look...everyone should be treated equal....everyone should be able to go to college, buy a house, ect...but because of a select greedy few and
the use of the military for that gain...it's become impossible to live the American dream....let's fight for that and not over what belongs to
It’s not impossible to live the American dream and everyone is treated equally under the law. Equality doesn't mean everyone should get a silver
spoon in their mouth; there is no free ride.
Nobody has to ‘sell their soul’ to prosper in America. Too many people look at their own shortcomings in life and want to rationalize them. Just
because some people can’t figure out how to get ahead doesn’t mean those who have did something wrong to get there.
