UNITED STATES ARMY HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST. If we vote in a real president, Mitt Romney, in November we will continue to be the best. Let comrade Obama back in and Al Queda will take over.

Alas I was too much of a coward to serve in our armed forces. When called for selective service I claimed "unfit because of homosexuality". Oy vey.

Oy vey. What is wrong with me? I start drinking high octane beer in the morning and then I go online and post all sorts of nasty lies. I would never have the guts to say this face to face to anyone. I am a cowardly drunkard who leeches off my hard working wife's earnings so I can afford to drink expensive beer in the morning. I have no friends here or in the real world because I am anasshole and I am too afraid to venture outside my front door lest someone who I have slandered take offence and get in my face. Oy vey.

We have the best army in the world. But if Obama is re-elected don't count on it staying this way.
Vote Romney/Ryan November 6th!

Believe that and I got a bridge you might be interested in buying. Too bad you tea sack morons are so wrapped up in your feeling of inferiority, I feel for ya. It hurts your sadly underdeveloped sense of self to lose. You better get used to it.

Tell us, Cullen, did you volunteer or get drafted? I volunteered. You're oh so wrong about my sexuality and my military service...
444th Engineer Co. Depot, II Corps US Army discharged spring 1964, before your sorry butt got dragged off to the killing fields. By the way, son, homosexuality was not mentioned in the armed forces back then but then a fat old queer like yourself knows that well.

Thank you for your service. And you are correct. Anti-American cowards like Thomas are beneath our contempt.

It depends what you mean by "the best Army". We obviously failed in the Vietnam and Korean wars.
And we're not doing to great in Afghanistan, either.

But if you're talking about sheer muscle power, that also depends! Going to war with the Chinese would be one nasty fight!

You obviously haven't served in our Armed Forces. In both those wars it was politicians who kept our brave military from total victory. Politicians and whining protesters...like you?

You wish. In Korea we were totally out gunned by the massive Red Chinese Army. The only way that war could have been won was to bomb the crap out of Manchuria at the risk of Soviet intervention or a massive influx of Chinese to augment the already sizable numbers that fought us to a stand still at the 38th parallel.

Vietnam? Read the following;

"The key to US defeat was a profound underestimation of enemy tenacity and fighting power, an underestimation born of a happy ignorance of Vietnamese history, a failure to appreciate the fundamental civil dimensions of the war, and a preoccupation with the measurable indices of military power and attendant disdain for the ultimately decisive intangibles. In 1965, Maxwell Taylor confessed that "the ability of the Viet Cong continuously to rebuild their units and make good their losses is one of the mysteries of this guerrilla war. We still find no plausible explanation of the continued strength of the Viet Cong."[52] Four years later, Vo Nguyen Giap commented that the "United States has a strategy based on arithmetic. They question the computers, add and subtract, extract square roots, and then go into action. But arithmetical strategy doesn't work here. If it did, they'd have already exterminated us."[53]

The United States could not have prevented the forcible reunification of Vietnam under communist auspices at a morally, materially, and strategically acceptable price."

"As late as 1972 -- a full eight years after the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, four years after the Tet offensive, three years after revelation of the My Lai massacre and two years after the National Guard shootings at Kent State -- the Democratic Presidential nominee, George McGovern, running on an unambiguous vow to stop the war, suffered a loss of cataclysmic proportions to President Richard Nixon.

By then, of course, the antiwar movement itself had largely petered out as the Nixon Administration implemented a series of troop withdrawals and the draft gave way to all-volunteer armed forces.

People need to realize the USA and USMC of the sixties/seventies era bore little resemblance to the highly skilled, and equipped military of today. As for the protest movement, ha, ha, ha, I think it had very little to do with Nixon's final decision to get out.

"Rather than give credit to the antiwar movement for stopping the war, I think it's at least as valid to suggest that the turmoil created by the movement served further to paralyze United States policy makers, whose aims in Vietnam were never very clear.

After all, the war in Vietnam, at least in terms of Americans fighting and dying, lasted three times as long as the Korean conflict of the 1950's -- a war that, by way of comparison, elicited minimal backlash on the home front."

A traitor like you finds it so easy to lie and dump on this country and our military. It is fitting that you are too cowardly to even leave your home for coffee, Thomas. I have more respect for the moles under my lawn than you.

The United States Army (and of course the sister services, USAF, USN, USMC, USCC ) are the very best armed forces in the world. The Israelis and Brits are very good as well. As for the US war losses, Korea was a victory (look at South Korea as compared to the North), the rest can be attributed to political losses, not military losses. But I guess that is the same.
