Thanks to this war, "mission accomplished" no doubt. Now, the whole world united against us. You guys have your beloved Fuhrer to thank for.
I HONESTLY CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT I AM READING!!!! YOU have obviously spent WAY too much time listening to the 30 second sound bites on ABC,CBS, NBC and CNN.
As a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Air Force with over 22 years of service, I am disappointed to read such CRAP. As a man sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, I applaud your Freedom of Speech. With that freedom, however, comes with it, some responsibility. So, before you go accusing ALL people who have decided to join the armed forces a bunch of sh!theads who are only one step from Focking your mother, just remember, it was you who wanted protection from any more terrorists who attacked this country. It was you who screamed out that we need to do "something". It was you who stood by, while brave you men and women, some of who were probably your neighbors, deployed to that wonderful part of the world.
I have flown over 40 missions in that part of the world, most of the locals that I have met there are happy to have us there. The news media focuses on the wrath of death and destruction, because that is what makes headlines. Showing us building a school or opening a hospital or supermarket is boring, so, you never see it.
I was also in the air on September 11, 2001, piloting a Boeing 737 for American Airlines, and watched in horror as my coworkers and friends perished that day. THAT will never happen again, not on my watch.
Like I said, exercise your freedom of speech, just remeber the responsiblilty that goes along with it.
Off my soapbox now, enjoy your day.
