Who cares? Why are we still talking about the war??? These young men and women signed up for it, so if they lose their lives god bless em and all but that's the rode they've chosen. Deal with it!!! It's not like we (America) aren't bad guys ourselves.

There are a lot of people who still care. I care. I'm sure their FAMILIES care! They need support, even if you don't agree with the war. They fight for our freedom, so you can spout YOUR OPINION, where ever YOU choose.

When these young men and women signed up, they signed up for the National Guard, not for the full active-duty military. Many of these kids were just hoping to get tuition assistance through ROTC and other programs...they just wanted to be able to afford college. They had no idea that a resource-hogging war would break out, and that the NATIONAL GUARD would actually be called up.

They are doing their duty without complaint. It's sad that these stand-up citizens have a good chance of dying in a war that they did not contemplate. Even if we don't agree with the war, we still need to support the troops themselves. They're good kids, and Iraq is the last place they want to be.

Whats sad is that anyone might give their life for an idiot like this. I suppose you don't care when cops or fireman die either... after all thats they paid for. And if "we are bad guys" then get out you piece of crap.

You are a frick'n moron. People like you should have their citizenship revoked.

I do not care if you are for or against the war. But these are the same kids, in spirit, that fought for our freedom in 1776... the same that went to Europe... TWICE... and fought in every other American conflict.

Yes some of these kids signed up because the wanted to, but MOST signed up so they could (afford to) go to college and become a productive member of society.

To the men and women over in the sandbox, already home, or heading out... Thank you for putting your country first! God Bless!

Give their life for me??? Listen here, No ones giving their life for me. Instead of worrying about the terrorist and extremist over seas they need to worry about the racism and police over here who enjoy shooting young black kids.

My Country??? Are you kidding me? In this country if you're not white you're black. We have the same issues in this country as we've had 50 years ago. They signed up for themselves (College Funds) not because of me. Those same people who are on here slandering me for my opinion were the same ones who blasted a 19 year olds parents because he was out at 3 am. Good I don't give a $##@$ if those soldiers lose their lives or not. It makes up for all the black kids that the police over here are killing and the racist remarks by Imus and Richards that you guys ignore ALL THE TIME.

I think you need to go post your RACIST remarks on the "Why BLACK people hate WHITE people" thread. Your ignorance will SHINE there.

Hey A Bug and a Wish, forget God! You can go to church but living the bible and making up your OWN rules and guidelines are a different story. Go get a clue.

So, I'm making up my own rules? How is that? You know nothing about me, or how I even feel about you. You make assumptions. YOU seem to be so full of hate. Must really be awful to go through life that miserable. Someone must have done a number on you. Where might this "clue" be, that you are telling me to go and get. You apparently don't know, because you don't seem to have one either. So sad...

ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE FULL OF HATE. Imus and Richards were just men about it and said what was really in their hate. You just hide behind a bible and amongst your own folks speaking how you feel behind a computer screen and at the dinner table. I see right threw you.

OK....You think I am full of hate? INTERESTING. I'm not. You have a lot of growing up to do, little man. I don't live in Stow, either. Nice try. Just because my IPS link says Stow, doesn't mean that's where I am from. You get around, seeing as you know SO much about Akron, and Stow OHIO. Chances are good, that you are still in High school, trying to figure out if you like girls yet....Good luck, my little IMMATURE man. Hopefully, you find peace, before someone really puts you in your place......

I bet you're just sitting in your Nashville single wide trailer, white as a piece of wonder bread, thinking up ways to come on here and stir the pot, aren't you? Do you have ANYTHING intelligent to offer?
