Freedom, a luxury we are given through the blood of those that protect us. Almost three hundred years ago we gained our freedom through the blood
of patriots, and now we retain our freedom through the blood of young soldiers of liberty.
I have no problems hating the goverment, I have no problem with protesting the war and protesting the countrys economic state, protesting the way the
goverement controls its people. I have no problem with that. My question is have you been aware of the difference between a 4 Star General and a
soilder? There is no blaming the marines and soldiers in this war, to do that is despicable. Do you think they have any choice what to fight for? Once
they enlist, it is their duty to protect the country, to do orders. They can't choose not to do something.
The kid that gets hit by a roadside bomb in Afganistan could be your 18 year old neighbor. It happened to mine. If you dont support what they are
doing, at least try to get them home safely. If you don't support the political side of the war (I dont) even if you don't like the idea of war (I
dont like the idea of war) you need to keep it in your minds and hearts that soilders are not to blame when the SHTF. You can go hang the 5 star
generals, and the heartless men with the money who pull strings, but keep that difference in your mind. Just as all smokers are not sinners, not all
soldiers are heartless killing machines.
