So none. Gotcha. No shame here, I'm quite proud of what I did. I can gurantee you that I have saved more Iraq lives in one week than you have your entire life. I just like the truth to be known.edit on 8-10-2012 by NavyDoc because: (no reason given)

EDIT: now I read more... damn. Lots of hate lol... well someone has to do all those naaaaasty eeevil things and risk their lives so you conscientious objector (aka bloody cowards) can spend their days and nights with your families watching tv on the couch. Well... just dont spit on the freedom that they provide and give their lives for.
Everyone is your enemy that disagrees with the blood you pour out in the name of.....what exactly tough guy?
Its a total lack of respect and if I had to choose, I'd gladly shoot one of you to save one of them... actually... if shooting you could bring those I lost back, i'd shoot everyone of you - so respect and dont hate.
I know you have no problem killing anyone who doesn't respect you....you can only garner respect by shoving a gun in someone's face (and it feels good too).... freedom for you but not for anyone in your path. While you were out terrorizing poor pheasants for the U.N. everyone is losing freedom....you won't make the connection though....you are drunk on power.
Others are in mourning, others are scraping up what is left of their children who had nothing to do with this war but, may have been in the path of a few guys "relieving some stress". You get your respect based on the actions you do. The respect you get when you threaten people's lives is a delusion. This is not facebook.... you would think that you wouldn't flaunt your indifference to those who bury their dead while you receive blood money.
I am glad you made this comment, people need to see what some of you guys turn into. Yes, some of us realize you have no problem killing anyone who doesn't bow down to you, even your own families. Want to talk about the horror stories of when you come home and terrorize your own loved ones? Nooo.....
Ya know what is dangerous today....truth buddy. It shatters all the delusions that are used to justify all this slaughter, and that pisses off all those who revel in it. Fear gets you respect...I am not afraid of this evil, I don't like the world you are helping to create and some of us don't care if you have a bullet with our name on it, how's that.
Now this is some stupid rant... Listen, first... I'm not your "buddy" mate. Second you dont even deserve the freedom of being there, behind yer keyboard, typing all that nonsense. And third... I wont even elaborate an answer because this is just too bloody stupid! Blood money? Are you retarded? Seriously... are you? Go back to playing houses and doctors and get back when you do understand things properly - then maybe we can have a chitchat about what is and what isnt. You know... when you actually begin to filter the propaganda yer fed every damn day. Get yer own opinion... not somebody else's. Just makes you look like a little dumb parrot repeating everything it hears with not even the slightest idea of what yer talking about.

Yeah, that was a good one, the Navy Numa Numa....
it brings to mind the fact that I've no idea what that language is, or whose song it was; apparently it's foreign (and not English or Spanish -- the two languages I know), but has a nice dancy beat.....
and if Americans are dancing to it and know the words....
well, that's a beginning, eh??
Thanks to freedomSlave for fixing the link.
Yes, the concept of ‘unselfish love’ took us far too close to the truth that love is the integrative, unconditionally selfless, ‘Godly’ theme or meaning of existence! We had to first explain our less-than-ideally-behaved human condition before we could confront it.
There has certainly been much talk of the need to love each other and to love the environment, but the REAL need and cause on Earth has been to find the means to love the dark side of ourselves, to bring understanding to that aspect of our make-up.
The famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung was forever saying that ‘wholeness for humans depends on the ability to own their own shadow’ because he recognised that only finding understanding of our dark, unloving side could end our underlying insecurity about our fundamental goodness and worth as humans and, in so doing, make us ‘whole’–thereby allowing us to acknowledge that the answer to ‘what is true love’ is that it is unconditional selflessness.
The pre-eminent philosopher Sir Laurens van der Post was making the same point as Jung when he said, ‘True love is love of the difficult and unlovable’9 and ‘Only by understanding how we were all a part of the same contemporary pattern [of wars, cruelty, greed and indifference] could we defeat those dark forces with a true understanding of their nature and origin.’10
