that was my friend who died in the chopper today. my wife is close friends with his wife. my children play with his kids. we swim in the pool together. we broke bread together numerous times. this was wrong. this great man was ripped from his loving kids and wife. what a horrible tragedy. this war is senseless if our government has the military fight with its hands behind its back. in order to beat those muslim bastards we have to allow our military to kill with no restraint. you tell the soldiers kids that their daddy died for a noble cause but the cause is crippled by those pencil pushers in washington who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year sending young men and women to their death!

Nothing "noble" in occupation. Afghanistan for the Afgans. What about their wife and kids ? Or are they "muslim bastards" as well ? Occupation is a crime, PERIOD.

I agree no killing is right it is the poltisions that are BASTARDS! Get out troops out now to save the lives of our kids, because thats all most of the troops are out there kids. Its criminal and the government should be held accountable.

My Daughter is out there trying to save lives of soldiers and Afghans.

If we are mourning over the same man then I totally agree with u. I still can't believe it and I am still trying to believe that I won't see him again. He was the best CO I a Marune could ever have. His wife and children are who I weep for. I have unfortunately list many to this war but this is the first time I've ever asked why him? RIP LtCol C

lol you clueless lib. It seems that even your messiah disagrees with you.

I love watching Dems betrayed and your messiah has been a treat when it comes to this but he must still be voted out for his other socialist policies.

As far as Afghanistan goes I have no problem with him and like his tactics .

LOL YES and rest assured Obama will do just that . He seems to have learned the effective Bush/ Cheney methods which kept us safe and this idiot is actually fighting the way he should be.

I love those covert operations where civilians are killed and hushed up because thats how you fight them and the more you kill the less future Talibans.

Thanks Obama your not as dense as I thought.

Seriously, the Soviets couldn't pacify this country. We have deal some blows. The Navy is pretty sitting idle. Give em something to do. Naval gunfire should help along with some f18's. Hell, let the Air Force get in and use a B52. Why play games?

. Yes I do realize UK troops are there. It's shameful, and a disgrace. T.Blair should be in a jail in The Hague. We need no lessons in covering up crimes, "we" have a long history in doing just that. However this time it really is a conflict to far. A war of choice and all it's done is cause death and destruction for what aim ?(and made Islam an enemy to boot)
"Our" empire was over in 1945, thought we could tuck in behind USA and keep the good times rolling. Reality is, USA empire days are numbered,(You seem blistfully unaware of that fact).
UK need to be fully behind EU and cast it's dreams of USA all the way to the history books. The future isn't a world "Pax Americana", the future is a multi-poler world. EU , China , South America, etc and yes USA. But you will not dominate as you wish. The world will be a fairer and safer place when you lot (usa) grow up and treat others as equal . Spend your $$$$'s on USA people and infastructure, not bombing, killing and generally being a pain in the arse

One can only be shocked and amazed by the ignorance and falsehoods perpetuated by some people on the "topix" pages. Goodluck to you Rattlecattle,(I'm so glad i don't have to share the same air as them).
Your posts have sent a ribble through their cold hearts and the self-righteous responces you provoked has been fantastic to read. Keep up the good work. They can't handle the truth

He was a US marine, and he knew what could have happened, and he sacrificed himself for our country, and he was willing to do that the day he became a marine.

Westley, Westley, Westley.. shouldnt you be in the pub watching some football? Leave the discussion here to the educated folks. But I do have to ask one question, what truth cant we handle? You, and my main man rattlecattle, say the same shit over and over again. You state shit but fail to provide the facts. You say how the Coalition in Afghanistan are cold blooded killers and what not. I bet you cant even find Afghanistan on the map. And you, Westley, talk about occupations when your country were the masters of it. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Do us a favor, pull your head out of your ass, turn on the telli in your flat, and educated yourself on what is going on here.. or how about a book. Hell, take a trip over here and see for yourself. Or are you a pussy like my man rattlecattle who are afraid of joining the armed forces. Come over here and you will see that we are not walking around shooting everything in site.. take a look at the roads, schools and medical clinics that are being built. Do you know that the bad guys here are blowing up aid workers? Killing those who are delivering medical supplies to villages? HAVE YOU FORGOT ABOUT THE ATTACKS IN LONDON??
I bet you think that the Coalition forces are setting those bombs dont you? Hell, two morons from Germany made that statement this morning on here. You all must be in the same club. Its weird to hear a Brit whose country occupied almost the entire world and enslaved people and Germans who goosesteeped across Europe killing millions talk about how American is the evil empire. Or maybe its jealousy???? Lets see, we first kicked the Brits ass out of our country (twice) then we bailed them out twice, we kicked the Germans ass twice... seems to be a pattern here. So, the question here is... are you just that dull or are you jealous?

Rattlecattle, you da man!
