@Treeleaf Pro soldiers, but anti war.

Exactly. No one has to support the war, or any war for that matter. Don't hate the solders that are fighting the war, hate the politicians that got them into that war.

@Sgt_Fink You're acting like soldiers have no choice.

They do have a choice. They don't have to fight for you, they could just let the other countries come and take over our government, but guess what? They don't! and you are so ungrateful.

An amirite post is hardly a medal of honour.

My brother is in the Marines and I don't want him to be deployed. I've asked him several times why he does it and every time he tells me he wants to be out there. He says he's doing it for me and everyone else, fighting for our freedoms. He WANTS to do it. He's my biggest hero and I wish that everyone could see what those soldiers are doing for us everyday instead of saying how stupid it is. There will always be war because people will never have the same opinions. And it makes me proud to say that I am related to someone who is willing to stand up for all of us, even if no one is backing him up.

No, there will always be war because humans don't know how to sort things out without resorting to violence.

i think we owe them a lot more than a post

For all of you who believe all the propoganda that fox news feeds you;

State your opinion to a Navy SEAL or a Green Beret, not people on this site; we're all civilians here. If you're really going to talk crap about them, might as well say it to them, not regular civilians.

Isn't an American "trained soldier" supposed to defend the U.S. Constitution? So if I were to openly disagree with what the soldiers are doing and express my opinion on any other "taboo" subject, wouldn't that soldier have to defend my right to do so even if he is against what I'm saying?

And to all the people saying "Pro soldiers, but anti war," hahahahaha. Good one! That's a lot like saying pro nuclear weapons, but anti violence.

really yall up there are arguing?
cant you just get along for the day?
i mean really..its the day to celebrate everyone who fights for freedom..
and you idiots are arguing about it
just get along okay?

I wouldn't say you owe them a post. Maybe money, maybe your life, but not an amirite post.

@Amish_Allosaurus We owe them more than we can imagine.

i kinda disagree with that. maybe for the veterans from WW1 and WW2 but i dont really see what the soldiers are doing for us now. the only reason the soldiers are in Iraq now is because of 911 and not even really for that reason. its just because Bush wanted the oil, so technically americans started this war.

@rosinbackrider i kinda disagree with that. maybe for the veterans from WW1 and WW2 but i dont really see what the soldiers are...

The reason America is in Iraq is NOT because of 9/11 that's why they're in Afghanistan. They are in Iraq because they were looking for weapons of mass distruction (which wern't there) and to overthrow Saddam Hussain. Just so you know : )

@rosinbackrider well why are they still there then?

Well probably because they can't just go in overthrow the government and just leave : / they'd be leaving the place even worse than when they went there.

@SpearmintMilk The reason America is in Iraq is NOT because of 9/11 that's why they're in Afghanistan. They are in Iraq because...

But didn't Bush say they had all the means to make WMDs? I'm not 100% sure, but I think he said something like that.

@Amish_Allosaurus But didn't Bush say they had all the means to make WMDs? I'm not 100% sure, but I think he said something like that.

Iraq really didn't, not that could actually be a threat anyway. In his autobiography George Bush even said that the biggest regret of his presidency was the intelligence failure in Iraq. And Senate Intelligence Committee found in 2008 that his administration "misrepresented the intelligence and the threat from Iraq".

@Amish_Allosaurus But didn't Bush say they had all the means to make WMDs? I'm not 100% sure, but I think he said something like that.

I have the means to kill my flatmates. Does this mean I should be locked up? You're only guilty of doing something if you actually do it.

i totally agree, they're not keeping anybody safe they're just causing violence it's so stupid how people think it's heroic or w/e

@rosinbackrider agreed. it takes like what, 5 seconds to write a post?

What I'm saying is, in this scenario, an amirite post is entirely irrelevant and worthless.

@rosinbackrider thats what i was saying too

Exactly. And 100 times nothing is nothing, which is why I find this very unfitting.

I dunno man, i heard it's pretty hot down there

@stepdom it is veterans day not soldiers day the difference is one served in the military and one serves in the military so...

Veterans Day is for all military personal, whether they're retired or still actively serving. I thought it was just retired military that were considered vets but my dad, who happens to be a Lieutenant-Colonel, corrected me today.

I owe my gratitude...I don't owe them a vote on an internet post.

You are also not showing gratitude by opposing the attempt someone had in showing their appreciation. Not everyone has a solider they can just go up to and shake hands with, this may be the only way they can say thank you. At least they are.

You sir,are the most idiotic,horrible person I have ever had the displeasure of listening to,it is because of those "gun humping murderers" that you can even put such a thing on,or even use,the internet without being hanged or shot by a communist goverment.You should just be lucky that you aren't living in a straw hut somewhere being forced to kill your baby daughters like in certain places on this planet.I certainly hope you did not have any relatives who were in the military,because they would be rolling over in their graves at this point.Now please gtfo!

@Sgt_Fink Oh sorry, I shall give those gun humping murderers my respect. WHOO VETERNZ DAI 2010 FUCK YAHH!!!1

I've never said this to anyone but I hope you drop dead right now. I mean that, If I had one wish, I would wish that you died right now.

I'm a conservative, but man, you should have been aborted. Go blow yourself up, for someone who's so anti war, you're being pretty violent. I bet you're nothing but a 12 year old virgin sitting in your moms basement, ranting because you have no friends in the world.

I was merely emphasizing on your inexperience in the world, and yeah, I never said I wasn't violent because I'm definitely violent when it comes to defending the good soldiers of this nation, so thank you, but I don't think I'm the idiot here. If you want to reduce the military and make sure we can't defend ourselves, go ahead, plan out your own demise, that's fine by me, I'll just move to the country that will take over you when that happens.

I don't support he war either but I sure as hell will support the people who are possibly giving up their lives so I can go to Church without being scared of being murdered, or that I can speak freely.

If WE didn't start wars?? Honey, do you know anything about history? The Vietnam war started because the FRENCH asked us to help them. Where do many Canadians come from? FRANCE. How did WWII start?
