How many of you idiots tried to justify the killing of 150+ people today by regurgitating the following brainwashed statements of state-propaganda:
“He was a solider“
“He was just doing his job”
“He was just following orders”
“He was a hero”
“He saved his friends”
Hey jackass,”people sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf”…go and complain to your Senator or Representative…they’re the ones who send us to war!
Actually, last I checked, there is no draft, and since most of you get offended that I say there’s a “monetary draft” then the only logical conclusion I can draw is that, no, Senators and politicians don’t send you to war, they simply declareit.
You volunteer for it. You willingly and knowingly sign up for it and willingly and knowingly travel halfway around the world to kill people you’ve never met and know nothing about under well documented false pretenses.
Chris Kyle was not some saint angle who saved my liberties and freedoms. And he certainly didn’t “do violence on [my] behalf” because this is not the type of violence I’d ever condone.
There’s justifiable violence (self-defense) and then there’s war. Try not to get those two mixed up in the future.
There are no exceptions to morality.
You are one of the many cowards who hide behind a keyboard and try to find a anti-war excuse for everything…at least I know I did something productive with my life,while you always are going to be wondering and filling your life with “what if…”war it’s not always about killing…but you will never know how people feel after you gave them freedom,you will never know the face of a 12yo kid who try a piece of chocolate for the first time,you will never feel that satisfaction…cause you always were behind a profile whining and complaining about war…and last but not least,if you don’t like it here go and try to have the freedoms you have in this land on another country…and I promise you you will not last there too long!.
Hide behind a keyboard? First of all, this is the internet, the only way to reach it is via keyboard. Unless you have invented so sort of bionic computer system which I can install in my brain and beam my thought directly into your head, (or you want to buy me a beer) I’ll stick to a keyboard.
And if there’s a flaw in always finding an “anti-war excuse”, then I’m guilty as charged. Sorry that I don’t like killing people and I want to save lives. I’m a terrible human being, I know.
You did something productive with your life by killing and destroying things? I’m sorry, but that’s probably the exact opposite of being productive. You weredestructive.
I don’t have many “what ifs” in my life because I didn’t spend a large portion of my youth destroying property and lives, therefore I don’t have many regrets.
“War is not always about killing”? “Give people freedom”? This is a joke, right? When’s the last time America freed people? We bomb and kill for our own economic exploits. We probably killed, injured and disenfranchised as many Iraqis as we “freed”.
I’ve worked with half a dozen global charities in my lifetime. I’ve given kids computers, basketballs, footballs, drinking water, food, schools, mentoring, teaching, the works, and I’ve done all of that without having to use force and aggression and certainly without having to stick a gun in the face of their friends and families, you ignoramus.
Only a buffoon like yourself can believe that the only way to make someone’s life better is by dropping bombs on other men. I’ve probably done more good through charities like Friends of Armenia, AGBU, HOM, Homenetmen, Salvation Army, Red Cross, etc, then you can ever dream of. And, again, I didn’t have to shoot anyone. Sorry, but I think this is a point that I have to stress.
Honestly, you’re entire shtick sounds like regurgitated nationalist garbage, just like my original post pointed out.
I’ve left this country many times. It will surprise you to find out that many other countries have as many and more freedoms and protections for their people. Many of those countries based their beliefs on the founding principles of the Constitution and unlike this country, stuck to them. While other countries are progressing, this one is falling and failing it’s people.
I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to civilized lands, places where I don’t have to carry a gun and where I don’t have to kill to ensure my safety. Sorry to shatter your world view, but the rest of the planet isn’t a prison cell filled with toxic waste.
I don’t hate this country, I hate the government of this country. I hate the foreign policy, and the banking cartels and I pity the poor souls who are willing to sacrifice their lives and kill others for the security and profits of private corporations.
You want to “protect” this country? Then stay in this country. Be a peace officer, a firefighter, a coast guard, a first responder. Join the National Guard.
I don’t want to leave and I won’t. I would, however, not mind if we expelled all the war-loving scum from this place. Perhaps we can just send them all to Mars and let them fight endless wars on that planet.
