The troops do nothing for freedom. Not in the last 60 years at least. They simply enforce the rules of people in suits in Washington.
troll harder.

I'm in the military and I am not the happiest about the shit they make me do sometimes, but I do it. You just keep on being jaded, but know that there are people giving their time for you to sit here and criticize.

Altho I am sending my love, respect and admiration out to everyone who is/has died fighting while ensuring my/our freedom I have to send a huge amount of gratification and never ending love to Todd & Brandon and their families. My brother was one of the only survivors of the same bombing that killed his 2 close friends and he just barely made it and in many respects, this would be my brothers picture if he sat in the same vehicle that day. There are no words to truly express.

They aren't doing anything for me, I did not ask them to kill little brown children in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, or Korea. Hell, I'll even give them Afghanistan as some what just, but the others are all BS.

Please explain how the troops are protecting my freedom? You do realize that the hijackers in 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia, not Iraq. You do realize the reason we went into Vietnam was because the US government wanted to keep from making France look bad when they went in there and screwed things up? You probably should read a history book. Do you know who Smedley Butler is? He was the most decorated marine at the time of his death. He participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America during the Banana Wars, the Caribbean and during World War I, he served in France. He also wrote the book "War is a Racket" and explained how his whole life he had been a tool for politicians and regretted it.


Its cool though, disregard me and the words of the most decorated man in the marines. Because he and I are stupid.

Last time I checked 15 out of the 19 were from Saudi Arabia. Last time I checked the Vietnam War was a war against Communism, not to make the French look any better. Lastly, if you knew anything about war then you know that you take the fight to their territory if you want them off of yours. Its a diversionary tactic to keep them from coming in droves to our country. I believe Sun Tzu wrote that in his book "The Art of War". So troll somewhere else and read a book you dumbass.

Someone's been listening to too much Anti-Flag.

It's not about what the goal of the government is. The soldiers who go out to these places are pretty damn selfless. They believe they are helping America and they are risking thier lives for their country. If that's not something to celebrate, I don't know what is. Hell, I'm Canadian and I respect your military. I may not agree with the reasons for wars that are started but I know that the soldiers are good people fighting for the right reasons. The suits in Washington are a whole diferent story.

Wait, they were fighting for economic freedom for the Vietnamese? I thought they were fighting for me.

Ah, so they are just robots who can't think? They just do whatever they're told? Nice.
