For ****s sake man. Just unbelievable.
First off: **** Syria. I get that we are eventually going to get involved. Im vehemently against dropping troops in there, but if we have to throw some missiles at the government then fine. Whatever. I can deal with that. I get we have to slap him down when he crosses the line. While id prefer it differently, i understand the reality of the situation.
But these ****ing ******s who want to go to war just to go to war are the worst Americans in history of our nation. I exaggerate, but only ****ing slightly. And lets not make any goddamned mistake, thats exactly what his deal is: go to war just to go to war. "Its about Morality, no wait its about Iran, no now its about WMD's and Russia, but wait dont forget Hitler!!!!". Im surprised he didnt manage to sneak in ****ing "socialism" or any of the other ****ing buzzwords weve seen spewed for the last few years. I suppose he would have sobbed about Al-Qaeda but that would have undermined his entire argument.
That these idiots wrap themselves in a cloak of patriotism while demanding our troops go eat bullets while they eat big-macs is utterly ****ing criminal. Im not going to suggest that attitude is some horrific recent chapter in our history, because we've certain exploited it in the past, but i find the recent incarnation of it utterly vile. Which is not to say im advocating a return of the attitude this country expressed after Vietnam. **** that noise, a complete tragedy.
But this mantra that "i just love our troops so much....now go out there and get involved in every conflict that arises ever" is total bull****. Complete and total bull****. How much you all want to bet dcnr226 didnt contribute a ****ing dime to the kids who had to go into the ****ing wars without body armor because their parents couldnt afford it? No one need to respond to that, no one would take a bet that one sided.
Gonzo, Bill, others, you guys have served: what the **** would happen if you had a commanding officers who needlessly and repeatedly threw you in harms way for vague or nonexistent reasons? He be stripped of his rank, correct? Possible court martial, right?
But hey, if your a citizen or politician who demands we keep throwing our soldiers to the wolves, your patriotic. You know, unless your taxes get raised to try and pay for the war. Then **** that ****.
****ing malignant ******s.
