Is America really the home of the brave? Or is it the home of cowardly little bitches who can't get over something that happened a decade ago? Anyone who has...
He's quit the site. I don't think he will see any further responses to the conversation.
Lame.. when did people stop having conviction..
For those of you who have missed out of the conversation.. Here is what is missing.. in chronological order..
Gerald Martinez commented on your video "Fuck 9/11! Get Over It Already!" on Think Atheist------------I'm a new member, and as much as I am an atheist, I would love to punch this guy on the face. I am an American service member serving in Kuwait while punks like this guy have never served a day. I have served in the US Air Force 20 years now and let me tell you, there is a big fucking difference between 9/11 and any other death you idiot. The difference is that we are in an asymmetric war where an ideology is trying to kill YOU IDIOT! And YOU too reading this, because you drive a car and YOU WOMAN, because you went to school. I fight this war every day. And I have seen many soldiers fall in battle and parade in a coffin in Afghanistan on the way to parents in some small county in America. How about remembering that on 9/11?? No Sir, we should never forget, and we should never stop playing these images on 9/11 so that people like you remember that you are alive and talking shit filling your mouth with freedom because of people like ME fighting a war against an ideology that wants to eradicate you. The day we forget is the day these terrorists blow up your son's yellow school buy on his way to school. Or the day the Jets vs. Cowboys game turns into a ball of fire and a bloody stampede of people without memory. So fuck off die with no one at your funeral because they forgot about your stupid rant.
@ Jacob, patriotism is not an archaic term just because of globalism. Patriotism is a very alive Maslow sense of belonging kind of thing and if you think that it is obsolete, I hope you do not live in the US or if you do, move out because I'd hate to be defending you. Patriotism does not ever disapear, it may morph, but the sense of pride and belonging still remains. Take Italy before Garibaldi...people resisted unification, but the do love their flag today. It is no different today. @Kim, as a prior enlisted and now officer, I can tell you that not one person I work with views any Afghan or Iraqi as any less of a person...except maybe a few red necks that have no business being in the military. In fact, In Afghanistan, most troops loved giving candy and all the stuff out of care packages to Afghan children on the other side of the fence. I made many lasting friendships with Afghans and learned a lot about their culture. And I don't like war and yes I do think that Iraq was unjustified and wrong, but we live in a democracy, like it or not. It may not be perfect, but we do get to vote, and we have to live with decisions made above us as they do represent the vote of the majority, and if we don't like it we get to vote again. And as for killing 8 innocent people to capture two...it depends. If they are hiding a nuclear bomb that sits somewhere in NY, then yes, kill 100 innocent civilians if you will save 1 million. Sorry but I do watch 24 with a passion for what people like Jack Bauer does. Point is, actions should be for the common good and sometimes tough decisions must be made. If people knew how seriously and how badly we try to avoid civilian casualties in Afghanistan or anywhere else for that matter, they would see that we really try. And it is unfortunate when it happens.@ Kris, sure we could have spent the money more wisely, like feeding all of Africa for a whole year sot aht we can keep feeding them for generations while the men keep raping their own kind. But you statement is as silly as that Italian guy in Italy who told me that "We don't need NATO because they have never been involved in anything to defend us and all of Europe is peaceful now." My answer to that Ass-wipe was: S
So, is it safe just because or maybe NATO had something to do with it to begin with? In your case, sure, we fed all of Africa and we still have radical Muslims coming after us. What If we Americans could not ever travel around the world because every time we went to a hotel we got bombed by someone. What if you could walk through the airport without any inspections to your bags, would you still fly? This is an asymmetric WAR and if you don't understand that term, I am truly sorry for plain ignorance. We must identify terrorists, hunt them down, and kill them like roaches. Forget the cost, because we cannot afford not to.Having said that: these wars do spend a lot of $$ unnecessarily...gosh don't I know this: we employ a gazillion Hindu/Indians here in Kuwait, so your taxpayer money goes to feed families in India while our folks back at home are jobless...so there, cut us back, I won't mind since I will spend time with my son...for a change.
Seems like some of the people that are angry over this video didn't listen to it all the way or don't think death matters unless they are American lol"If you're comparing the death of millions of people who die from disease and illness, to the mass murder of 9/11 you're a fucking douche-bag." Yet they ignore all the people we've killed that was mass murder as well or I guess they think innocent civilians should die in our wars and it doesn't make a difference because they aren't American?"Seriously, go explain your agreement with the little girl that lost her dad or the mother that lost her son or any family of the 2900+ victims and see if you don't feel like a total jerk."They should go to Iraq and tell that to the hundreds of thousands of kids that don't have entire families if they are even alive anymore or the victims of Hiroshima, Vietnam or any other major war the US has been in. Our killing of civilians isn't the same because these people aren't American so that is okay to some of you?
Response PART 2 to Sassan's idiocy as some of the first part seems to have been cut off.
Response PART 3 to Sassan's idiocy as some of it has been cut off.
@Bryan and Sassan
9/11 was 12 fucking years ago. I didn't bat an eye when it happened, and I won't bat an eye now. Yes I feel for the people who died, but I wasn't surprised by it, and I won't pretend that I cared very much about a building. WTC was a glorified bank and government office building. We have millions of those all over the country, that one just happened to be the tallest. Something I learned in grade school, when a bully knocks over your tower, you smile at him, and build it again. He gets bored when he can't get a rise out of you. We fell for 9/11 hook, line, and sinker.
