Obviously not a student of Human behavior.
We are animals on top of the food chain just like any other top predator and Its in our nature to kill, mame, violence etc no matter if you want to admit it or not. Just look what is on broadcast TV lately.
Its been going on for hundreds of thousands of years.
Yes I wish all of it would stop too, but there are just too many psychopaths vs truly peaceful people out there
in the world.
I figure about 2 out of 100 psychopaths so roughly about 140,000,000.

Just a little venting here....
The recent killing of accomplished killer and mass-murder Chris Kyle has sparked a wave of fevered idolization and cult-like hero-worship across the nation.
His funeral service was so large it had to be held at Cowboys stadium here in Arlington. I do not follow any organized religion but aren't most of them teaching that it is WRONG to kill? Period?
From the wikipedia entry:
Christopher Scott "Chris" Kyle (April 8, 1974 – February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in American military history, with 160 confirmed kills (out of 255 claimed kills), although these statistics have not been released by the Pentagon. At the age of 8, Kyle's father taught him to shoot. As a youth, he trained as a bronco rider for the rodeo, which he gave up after a serious injury to his arm. He had intended to volunteer and enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps, and was recruited by the U.S. Army, but eventually enlisted with the U.S. Navy. Kyle served four tours in the second Iraq war, and was awarded the Bronze and Silver Star medals multiple times. Iraqi insurgents dubbed him the "Devil of Ramadi" and offered an increasing bounty for his head. He was shot twice, and was involved in six IED attacks. Kyle was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2009 in order to spend time with his family. He remained in the spotlight during retirement, and wrote a New York Times bestselling autobiography, American Sniper. Kyle was shot and killed on February 2, 2013, near Chalk Mountain, Texas.
over 150 people killed huh? And people look up to him?
Sorry guys - I see someone who was seriously **SNIP** up, out of touch with humanity and simply a stupid machine used by things and people he couldn't comprehend.
I'd be interested in your thoughts about why this person should be considered a hero.,

How is this guy defending my "freedom" last time I checked I got my freedom because the black people stood up to the racist government of the USA and demanded the rights which whites enjoyed.
Chris Kyle didn't stand up to my civil rights. No he killed for a administration that lied to the American Public that Iraq had WMD's; perpetuated a lie that Saddam Hussein had anything to do with 9-11/Antrax. This guy is a stupid nationalist puppet willing to murder without as much as blinking an eye and asking why is he even killing in said country we invaded.
I got my gun; I can defend myself assholes. I don't need some asshole killing because he is "defending" my freedom.

We are still males.Have you ever met a humble fighter pilot when they are still flying?
To get to be the best requires arrogance of spirit,the undying belief in yourself so that pain and hardship don't overwhelm you.
SEALs are a world class pinnacle element.Their people are well beyond the olympic standard.They are just fine being arrogant they've earned it in one of the hardest ways a person can.
Humility would be expected from those who are protected but the country is contrary right now.
