Now you're getting it.... finally
why do you suppose these fine, upstanding young people VOLUNTEERED to serve in the military?
Because they were lied to by the government they trusted.
I mean before they turned their backs on their comrades, and their oath, and fled, tails tucked firmly between their legs, to Canada?
Because they went into service to protect their families, country and way of life and to defend their flag.... the are willing to sacrafice their lifes for these causes, however these wars they are sent for are not meeting any of those goals, Iraq has no capabilities, nor ever did, of anyway of attacking the US directly, and they have never done anything to the US people, yet the US acting apon agression and their own personal agenda at the hands of the Iraqi people.
They did the same thing when they invaded Canada and figured there wasn't many of us, it'd be an easy war and Canadians would welcome them with flowers and open arms, and we wanted to be Americans..... that fell flat on their face.
They did the same thing with Vietnam, with the same mentality, and look what happened there....
Now they're doing the exact same thing in Iraq.... invaded their country, figured they'd welcome them with open arms and flowers and wanted to have the American way of life..... and that's falling flat on its face too....
Exactly when will the US learn from their past mistakes? Apparently never. However that doesn't mean the people who used to believe in the US, can't figure out this pattern for themselves and know that it's wrong. They're the ones who have to answer to the actions the government makes them do, not the people in office making the decisions.... it doesn't matter to them wtf happens to their troops.... they're just numbers after all.... usually the poor scum of society they want to rid themselves from anyways.
Who in their right mind would want to defend that sort of life?
BTW, here is a US Army soldier tried and convicted for Desertion......refusal to serve in Iraq...........his sentence? Tortured and shot at dawn? Thirty years hard labour?
Eight MONTHS in prison and a dishonourable discharge.
Some police state.
I tell you, if US war resisters had balls, they would stay in the USA and make their point, instead of running to Canada, where the thrust of their protest is entirely lost on those it is aimed at.....OMG! Eight MONTHS. Geez!
Absolutely no balls.
Sorry, I'd rather end up not impressing you with the size of my testicles, then to spend the rest of my life with PTSD from being ordered to murder innocent women and children and have those faces coming through my mind in the middle of the night and waking up screaming in a pool of sweat..... just to make you think I have some big balls.
My and their own health is more important then to impress the likes of you. and if you think murdering the innocent and those who can't defend themselves, all along with a chuckle from your commanding officer is required for defending your oh so great country, then who here really has the problem?
Send 'em home.
We don't want them.
You don't want them.... speak for yourself... welcome to a democracy, where your voice doesn't speak for everyone.... deal with it.
Give it a rest Lads, you are WAY out in left field on this one.
And as usual, you're still in Uncle Sam's pocket thinking everything they do is justifiable and people have no rights to refuse what they're doing, even when it's illegal.
Bravo, good job.
