I have to say your colorful references to my username were quite amusing.
I going to go on a limb and say you weren't stationed anywhere friendly, since you were wounded. Agreed that there is a need for protection, I'll give you that. But I'm going to go out on another limb and assume you weren't exactly protecting... you see I don't consider the invasion of unstable foreign countries as "protection", more an overzealous police act. We, as a country, caused more death and misery than 9/11 tenfold throughout our disturbing history. The loss of human life during 9/11 is NOTHING compared to the devastation we've taken apart of in the Middle East. So maybe it is you who should be brushing up on politics. The need for military is essential, but it is not the need of said military I find questionable, but rather it's actions if you can grasp that. Tell you what though, soon as sh*t does hit the fan I'm packing my sh*t and moving to Canada so I guess you won't have to worry about covering my sorry self preserving ass.
I know a military presence is necessary, but don't you dare tell me the recent actions of the armed forces were in the interest of my freedom.
Let me get this straight, because the government is responsible for whatever you are saying. Its perfectly fine for innocent people to have died because of the government. You make me sick. Its people like you who should have been here in new york standing right on vesey street watching people splatter on the ground and hit other people trying to run away from the buildings. But according to you its ok because the government destroyed other countries.
