jason rodgers was not a hero and we should stop calling members of the us military who are killed in the us occupations in iraq and afghanistan ''heroes.'' what is so heroic about getting killed in some backwater country for dubious reasons? many us soldiers in iraq and afghanistan are SCUM. american soldiers have commited many crimes against iraqis and afghans. the ''war'' in afhganistan has been going on so long it's comical. there is no one in washington with the courage to say ''enough'' and end this occupation. jason rodgers didn't die ''defending our freedoms'' because the taliban are incapable of threating our freedoms. there are many polticians perfectly happy to leave us troops in iraq and afghanistan in perputuity. these polticians do not ''support the troops'' and neither does anyone else who advocates these useless wars. our goverment spends 300 billion dollards a year in afghanistan. we need to spend that on domestic problems. i;m not a mindless sheep. jason rodgers is not a hero. amd p.s., our troops have been in afghan. so long that last week they accidently killed themselves with a drone. anyone who joins the u,s. military needs to have their head examined.

Wow. Another "I'm angry at my parents" child with a keyboard. I would bet if I put your life achievement stats on one page and Jason's on another we would see why you are angry. Let's see - Jason would be the hero - you would be the zero. Fits.
Stop trying to be shocking for attention and go back to the card table with the other kids - the adults are talking here.

Well, it takes a hero to know one. Heroes are people who have the courage to train in foreign lands to prepare for the day when the fighting, bombing and devastation comes to our towns and cities. I guess when muslim authority raises its' flag in your front yard you'll be happy.

Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

With no thanks to whiny-assed, runny-nosed cowards like you, this and other sons, fathers, and/or brothers stepped forward and gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives for this country as well as other countries attempting to throw off the yokes of dictators, warlords, and socialistic thugs that think "their way" is the only way.

By the way, Sgt. Rogers and others BY CHOICE AND OF FREE WILL raised their hands and pledged to oreserve and protect the laws of this country and serve and obey the orders of a civilian government. Have you ever raised high your hand and pledge to fight (if necessary) for the betterment of civilized mankind? Do you even know WHY we have a Pledge of Alligence instead of some mindless, government-imposed chant?

You probably just go around holding out your non-calloused hand for some government dole that WILL run dry some day because of the lack of morality of too many like you. When were you PROUD of anything in American other than that of your own personal greed?

Even the last words of a aethist or agnostical dying soldier on the field of battle will be... "Oh my God." What will be your dying words?

I truly pray that God will have mercy on your miserable soul when your time will come. I'm sure your companions in Hell will save you a place, just in case.

Can anyone from Brandon confirm that the WBC protest at the funeral was not successful? I have only found articles that sount like someone has made up some stories. I have no facts, no names of reporters, only a blog at thehayride.com .

A lot of people would like to strike back at the WBC for its inhumane treatment of grieving families, so if this were true, it would be so great. Was anyone there? did anyone see anything like in the article here: http://thehayride.com/2011/04/westboro-baptis...

I cannot tell you about the accuracy of the article but the hate group was a "no show" at the services. I didn't see or hear of anyone doing anything inapprpriate to "encourage" the hate group tp stay away and you won't find anyone around here that did. If the hate group ran into any unfortunate coincidences that caused them to have problems that doesn't break anyone's heart. Hopefully they reflect on those experiences if they ever think about coming back.

What is genuinely important to remember is a hero who gave his life to save two other heroes who had been severely injured moments before. Two Marines under the command of Jason Rogers had been severely injured - he knew if he didn't get his men medical attention quickly they would die. The stretchers needed to move the injured Marines were in a truck across a field that had not been cleared for IED's but Jason Rogers gave no thought to his own safety and ran across the field and brought the stretchers back. While the injured men were being loaded onto the stretchers Jason returned to that same field between then and the truck with a metal detector to ensure there was a clear path to the truck that would be safe. As he scanned the field he received a reading and as he checked the area where he got the reading the IED exploded killing Jason. He literally gave his life to save the lives of his injured men and those who would have been carrying those men across that field. THAT is the story that needs to spread about a real hero - Staff Sgt Jason Rogers.

Amen. And all the more reason those WBC bastards should be forced to clear mine fields without metal detectors.

The story at thehayride.com , and all subsequent "news" stories about a Westboro Baptist Church member being beaten in Mississippi, originated from an anonymous posting on an Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) sports message board.[http://nafoom.yuku.com/ topic/39495/This-will-bring-a- tear-to-your-eye]

Rumors about the beating, and about an arrest of 4/6/20 protesters are all hoaxes. No WBC member was in Mississippi. April 16 on Twitter, Knolaust asked 3 WBC membes if any of them were arrested in Mississippi. All 3 said no (JaelPhelps, MeganPhelps, and MargiePhelps). These are attention hogs and lawyers. If they had been arrested, they would shout and sue. The whole WBC bunch were twittering all weekend, and the Rankin County Jail does not offer internet access to inmates.

Rumors say they were arrested at the funeral home, church, cemetary, and Taco Bell. They can't even keep the hoax straight.

Either way, I rode in the escort from the Funeral Home to the Church, and it was an awesome experience. There were 600 bikers leading the Marine through thousands of flag-waving residents for about 6 miles. The hint of a protest brought about a wave of patriotisim like I've never seen.

Forget the hate groups. Remember Jason Rogers and what he did for the men that were depending on him.

As an American expat, I can't always trust news sources. I have learned to doubt everything, even from what were once "trusted" and "reliable" sources on the major US networks and newspapers. I appreciate Muscadine taking the time to reply to me about the events. All of it sounded a bit too ideal to me. I detest the WBC in every way possible and would love nothing more than to have them smitten by the hand of God for being false. It breaks my heart that our families must suffer so much beyond the sacrifice of a son or daughter (or any relation, friend, etc.).

That was my cousin's husband newly married and didn't even make it one year...He was an amazing man & my beautiful cousin is devastated. They were robbed of a future. Just so you know the reception he received was well deserved...He was trying to save wounded men by clearing a path to be able to give them the medical attention they needed. When he was killed. He fought for you and all of us..You should be ashamed of yourself and how you speak about the people who look out for even you who don't believe in them...Choose your words carefully and remember who really began the war for our freedom...

You are the freakin moron, the reason the Taliban is not such a threat anymore is because the These soldiers are over there keeping them from organizing and taking away your right to get on the internet and bash other people. That's ok though, cause one day it all will be over and you and all our self-loving friends will be left behind with these people you think are not a threat, and when you bash them with words they will bash you with a steel pipe. All soldiers are Heros because they do what others are scared to do, but i guess in your eyes its braver to talk bad about people in the safety of your mom's basement.
