    I appreciate the service,the sacrifice and support of our country, of all Veterans on this board, regardless of difference of opinion and national origin. As an old combat infantryman, I am more than grateful to the Redlegs for many reasons. And that includes you, Seal.

    People who join the army have no morals. You go and shoot people you don't agree with.
    The last righteous war was against Hitler, everything else after that was totally amoral. So be proud that you were in the biggest terrorist organization of all time, the US army.

    OMG! I cannot believe that Ima of all people with her very fine brain could say such a thing. Ima dear, if not for war, our great nation the USA would be under British rule. If not for war, Hitler would have ruled the world. If not for war, Japan would not be our ally & trading partner. And if not for war, Jordan would not be living at peace from the Palestinians.

    You see Ima, there comes a point where when all else has failed to establish peace, only war can accomplish it.

    Like I said, anything AFTER WWII is totally bullshit. And WWII was righteous only because we were attacked, so to defend yourself is good. To attack, especially in Nam, Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan, for no reason is amoral and anyone who served in those wars should be fucking embarrassed to not only have served in a terrorist venture, but TO HAVE LOST!!!!!!!!!
