7 first-class passengers give up seats to Marines returning from Afghanistan

facebook.com/PrepareToTakeAmericaBack/posts/583085028413197

This is what Patriotism looks like


7 first class passengers give up seats to Marines returning from Afghanistan - The Marines learned that American Airlines - which has a policy to upgrade servicemen and women in uniform whenever possible - had six empty seats in first class for the group. That gesture was followed by seven first-class passengers who jumped out of their seats for the other Marines so they could sit together.



Actually my 1st thought was this All-American reward system issue for killing (from video war games, to real worldwide ones). Which other countries, like even UK society, do not so dog-trained reward:

www.dailymail.co.uk...


Difference between how UK and America treat their service man and woman. In American they are welcome home and treated like the heroes that they are. Americans understand that is thanks to these man and woman that they can go about their daily business as usual. In the UK service man are harassed when in full uniform and barred from pubs ... just in case they offend anyone who doesn't agree with war. (1st explanative Commenter)


Then, I thought of who pays for those 1st class seats Americans are taking from Afghanistan back to US anyways. Invididuals? In this economy?! Or your tax dollars anyway through their respective contractors etc?

And back to the MARINES. Obviously, its the traditional patriotic thing to do to soldiers 'fighting' for our country and our 'freedom'.

Afterall, apparently Afghans have been at war with us (like the rest of the Eastern world) for decades now.

Personal opinion.... it's all programmed BS!
I find it quite distasteful all this crap labeling anyone in uniform as a "Hero" all the time. To me, it's more heroic to refuse to go kill people who are in no position to harm us at all, on the say so of a bunch of sharp suited shysters in power. There is also nothing heroic about getting killed or maimed for life acting as the government's hired muscle.

There is nothing patriotic about supporting those in uniform, it's all programming for the masses. After all, nobody wants to be seen as being "unpatriotic".... do they?


I have also heard the argument that the troops perhaps don't agree with the reasons behind being sent off to fight in a far off place, but that they have no choice. More BS reasoning, of course they have a choice!
The idea that they are fighting for our safety and freedom is just more BS fed to us by the government and media in carefully managed PR campaigns. You only have to look at what the governments are doing with their mass surveillance campaigns, profiling and massive buildup of government agencies and the powers they have, to realise that Johnny goat herder 5000 miles away is no threat to my safety and freedoms, but my own government and it's hired enforcers are!

Bit of a ramble there! So, back to putting uniformed people on pedestals. In short, it's all just controlled thinking on a mass scale. Don't get me wrong, I wish them no harm at all, but at the same time I cannot support what they do and want them all home safely with their families, rather than sitting in a crappy hole being shot at by angry natives.

Indeed, Americans don't seem to realize one days it's going to be US being invaded for decades as part of the REAL war on terror/axis of Evil.

That is, if US doesn't nuke, radiate, or bioterrorize humanity out of existence first!

LOL. Well said.

Such ignorance from the left. A couple of youtube propaganda videos and someone is certain we are baby killers.

The taxpayer did not pay for those first class seats. Can you even read dumbass? They were donated by the airlines and then the passengers who gave up their seats.

I dont think most of us hate servicemen. But I think most hate what is done in Iraq/Afganistan ect

Its hard to draw the line.

I dont want anything to do Iraq/Afganistan, I dont want my name attached to it in any way shape or form. And giving a seat up or waving flag at those returning for there is putting my name to those dammed wars.

Dont blame us the public if your not getting cheered home and love and admiration. Blame the politicans who sent you there and the senior officers that encouraged the politcians to send you there.

I will never be out right rude or hostile to a service member or deny them services or discriminate in anyway, but I wont bend over and lick there boots either. My fear is unconditional support of troops equats to condoning the current wars.

I thank the servicemen for being there incase a REAL threat does arise.
But if I thank them for returning from Iraq/Afganistan then that means Im condoning those actions.


Also if everyone is so blind to unconditionaly support the troops in whatever they do, that may encourage the politicans to send them into even more unjust wars.

Its a difficult situation.

Spoken like a disarmed Brit. When they come for you in your country like the Normans did. you'll be standing there dumb founded with your thumb up your bum. relying on a brave army that distrusts the populace at best, and probably detests you for treating them like dogs just for defending your sorry behind. Typical ungrateful Brit, and in terms of intestinal fortitude just a shade above your effete neighbors across the channel. The US people themselves are the third best equipped army in the world. Any invasion would not go well even in the unlikely event they got past our military. Oh and by the way, we the people would stand our ground. Judging from your post you would probably crap your shorts and run.

No disrespect intended, but i can't help but wonder how troops would be treated if they were some of those aiding alciaduh, like those in Lybia and Syria have done, and the seat holders knew it..

also how can one defend those that aid ones enemies while being paid for with the taxes of those they are supposed to be defending, while denegrating those that know this?

Hate on the vets, love them, yell at them, give them a seat, salute them, spit at them,. . . . . .

All they want to do is come home.

So from me, "Welcome home guys."

*Salute*

I question where did first class passengers, coming back from Afghanistan of all places, fund their 1st class tickets. And suggested they are likely contractors for the government, as opposed to civilians, anyway.

Didn't know the word in bold is allowed per ATS tos. Interesting.

Here's the first sentence of the article you linked to.


Fourteen Marines on their way home from serving in Afghanistan were upgraded to first class on their flight from Chicago to San Diego.


So no, no tax dollars. Just nice people and seats that the airline didn't fill.

....For years the union-burdened old-line hub-and-spoke carriers, such as US Airways, American, and Delta, had struggled against increasing competition from smaller, more efficient, and more cost-sensitive competitors...
