Are you kidding me? Have we been attacked like 9-11 since? You have no idea what we are facing here. Enjoy your lap of luxury.

The world continues to be attacked all over! What makes you think someone lives in luxury just because they are not in Afghanistan? Maybe some of us are fighting a war in our own countries?
Did you not actually think you might have to go to war one day and face things you don't want to see? God forbid someone make a post saying they want the troops home, I'll even bet your own family wants you home. Ever heard of the silent ranks? The ones who wait anxiously to hear from a husband, wife, brother, sister,aunt, uncle, MOM or DAD? The ones who wait to hear if their loved ones are alive? To some of us you are more than just a soldier fighting in a war that SEEMS never ending, and hopeless. Don't be too quick to judge, educate.
