Marat, you are just like the VIB people attacking those that protect us. I do not believe in being in Iraq but to attack a young person who is just following orders and dies over there is just sick.

She never served her country by illegally occupying Iraq and helping murder its innocent citizens. How that can make anybody proud of being American is beyond belief. She was just about as inspiring as a dog **** and twice as worthless.
To call this ignorant dead grunt a "true inspiration for others" is totally sick.
The shame is that the family never authorized an independent autopsy to discover the real cause of her death rather than depend on anything the lying DoD told them.
You must be a friend of Sam Kurshan. He said he wanted to unrinate on dead police officers graves. You two should get together, make a special Kool-aid punch, and die. OH YEAH!!!

She led an evil, worthless life and the world is better off without her and her kind stinking it out.
Marat- You are the one who needs to learn how to read....no one made any reference to "wicked Iraqis". You clearly have a lot of time on your hands and don't have a job. Why not use some of your time spent degrading people whom you've never met and work with a local charity? It may benefit you to focus your negative energy doing something positive with your life. It's a waste to spend one's time judging others and criticizing when you clearly are not contributing to anything of humanitarian value. Morat, do tell us what contributions you personally make to humankind. Please no soapbox about how much you hate the soldiers and all that. We already know your opinion on that. But I would say if you had any respect for God (or whatever you may call him), and any respect for fellow humans, you would not purposefully trample on the hearts of the families of these soldiers by making hateful comments. Before you counter with saying how horrible they were, your obligations to other humans under God's law are unilateral and don't cease to exist because you don't agree with what others are doing. If you have an ounce of humanity, you would quit writing this kind of vicious stuff. Go out and peacefully protest the war instead.

Not only is Marat Euro trash, but chances are good that he is an Euro immigrant to boot. It doesn't get much lower than that.

You are a real piece of work. To think that someone like her had to die while someone like you is still drawing breath--just goes to show ya there isn't any justice!

To Marat
Son ,I will meet you at dry dock 2 Mare Island at 1000 tomorrow , and if you can not afford this expense I will pay for it .
I will give you the right to challenge me to a duel in which I decide the date and time and choice of weapons - to make this simple 30-06 at 1000 yards . You will have the right to decline and resend any remarks you presented to an American Military Person , if you do not resend I will rip your head off and stuff it up your ass . As a retired Navy Seal I am now sick and tired of all the liberal bullshit and yes I am a registered Democrat but am really suspecting that party agenda - nonetheless Marat see you there

I'll vote for the Diver.

Marat: I'm glad I spent 8 years of my life in the US military, just to defend your right to freedom of speech.

I doubt whether God would abandon morality to start blessing a country sending its murdering filth to kill innocents for oil.
I suspect that her family received a financial bribe not to have her body undergo a proper autopsy and to just accept what it was told.
She may have killed herself or got shot by her good buddies but in no way could it be said that she "gave her life for America."

Marat and Piddler,
You both are ignorant scum. My daughter is serving her country proudly and I resent having to live on the same planet as idiots like you.

Rest in peace Pvt Cole and God Bless your family. You gave the ultimate sacrifice so the above idiots can shop at the mall.

Whatever you think the murdering piece of filth you raised is doing, serving her country by killing innocent people is neither a service or anything to be proud about.
Jennifer Cole did not willingly make any sacrifice. She either shot herself or was shot by her good buddies.
Why don't you ignorant scum take a little time to get your facts right? In your case, you should be down on your knees begging forgiveness for your gross failure as a parent.
I and Marat are one and the same. In case you haven't noticed, freedom of expression only applies to warmonging loonies. Decent folk have their posts removed for being too honest.
Go back to your cave. I refuse to go into a battle of wits with unarmed people.

Marat, you have no right to disrespect someone who died for their country, no matter what the circumstances of the deployment were.

Maybe you should ask yourself why in any war of occupation, no matter if just or not, the soldiers of the occupying power are not guilty of a crime for serving their country, unless they commit acts against the basic law of humanity and military engagement. Maybe by being there, she saved the lives of Iraqis that would be lost if she alone were not there. Or maybe she saved the lives of her own countrymen. She was not one of the elite who started the war in the first place, they don't fight it. I am sure of that. She probably went there because she believed in defending her country. You should accuse those that sent her for lying to her.

Also, I am not surprised you are called Marat. He - like you - also turned people against each other, just because of pure hatred and venom. Until the violence he nourished became so big that it engulfed him as well. Empty demagoguery trampling over the grave of a hero who died for something she believed in, is incredibly cheap. It is also useless. You should turn against those who lied or told half-truths. Or you should shut up - because no cause is served by the moral baseness of disrespecting a soldier who died for her country. God bless her in His infinite mercy! I salute and respect her, something very small from a humble observer.

Marat = worse than Euro trash. Marat was one of the most blood thirsty newspapermen that ever put pen to paper. He was the one that wrote that all the prisoners in Paris prisons should be slaughtered - most of them were countless political prisoners of the French Revolution - a crime that was accomplished over 4 days in 1792. More than 1600 were lynched by mobs, many disemboweled and women raped in the streets.

But that was not enough for Marat: he called for more and more to be executed - hundreds of thousands, he said. And his calls were heeded in the streets of Paris, until everyone became sick of so much blood. It was enough for anyone to make a list of "enemies" for those people to die. A young girl came to his house pretending to hand him a fake list of traitors - he took the list and promised to have them executed the next day; but the girl struck him with a knife in his chest and killed him in his bath (he was always in a bath, because of a skin condition). For what, she was asked ? So my country can finally be at peace. And she died for that.

There you have it: Marat, the old and skin-diseased blood-thirsty psychopath, calling for more and more innocent blood out of what he thought were lofty principles, was finally stopped by a young girl who saw through his moral emptiness.

So what Marat writes here - I believe - is not out of character with the real Marat: trampling on the most elementary sense of morality out of some lofty principles, except that the lofty principles are empty. No one can care about Iraqis genuinely who tries to smear the memory of a girl who gave her life for her country. You are just like Marat, a demagogue who thinks he is above everyone else and enjoys hurting people affecting a sense of superiority. You are empty of humanity, that is your superiority. And that's fine. But don't affect you have it, you are fake and everyone can see through it.
