Oh for the love of -your deity here-!!!
Our heroic young men and women are willing to sacrifice their lives for the idea of freedom and liberty.
Please indicate where these heroic young men and women have sacrificed their lives for freedom and liberty if you don't mind. I was under the
impression that they were risking their lives for the greed and corruption that certain groups thirst for. I don't see any freedom or liberty coming
about from our adventures abroad, especially the ME.
Don't you DARE besmirch the idea that our brave, honorable men and women are doing something immoral!
I mean this with nothing but respect, but I am unable to tell whether or not that was sarcasm, please tell me that was sarcasm...
In the small chance that you were being serious, no one put a gun to their head and said "go invade that country". I know they are just doing their
job, but if I am offered a job that jeopardizes my moral beliefs I will turn it down, and have done so in the past various times. Heck, I even almost
enlisted after 911...man am I ever glad I didn't!
Each individual is responsible for their own actions. If someone tells me to pull the trigger, it's my choice whether or not to fire that bullet or
launch that rocket...
Please keep in mind that I am able to admit that these young men and women for the most part have good intentions, but they are mislead and are
responsible for the choices they make. I'm pretty sure you may have heard me say this before, but I have several family members who have served in
this horrific "war on terror" based on nothing but lies and greed so I feel your pain and can relate to some of what you say but do not let your
patriotism and pride get in the way of comprehending the full context of the situation. I have seen many of your posts so I am in no way implying that
you do not understand the situation as I believe you to be a clever person but some of the things you say do indicate that our views on this whole
issue are completely opposite...perhaps there is some mutual ground somewhere in the middle and maybe we will come to a mutual agreement some day in
the future with proper dialogue and sharing our differences in opinions.
