There are afew assholes everywhere. This video is BS, big fucking deal. It proves nothing and feeds the fuel to the simple minded.

It won't get removed because everyone can see right through it.
How does it compare to Reverend Wright's video loop of snippets from his sermons?

A person choses to join the military out of a sense of obligation to Country. To serve when called upon to do so. It is a very personal decision and one that changes your life forever. If you end up in an area where there is combat, that change is even more pronounced. Nothing is ever the same, no matter how "easy" you get through your tour.

The last thing that anyone in the military wants to do is kill. Everything that you plan for is to eliminate that need. Sometimes politicians or history get in the way.

It would always be an easier decision if we were always called to actually "defend home". That is not always the case. We have been very fortunate that we have not had the battle brought to us. Even 9/11 was not war, as bad as it was.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Don't really care, I didn't have anything to say about that either.

As long as Obama stands against reverse racism.

You can't fix the system if both sides don't fight for it.
