Darn it! He Did not "WIN" the Medal of Honor. He EARNED it. What the heck is wrong with you headline writers? This ain't no lottery.

Hardly much of a surprise. I served in the first gulf war. We at least had clear cut goals, and were not impeded in our ability to kill the enemy by political correctness. We have good men and woman dying for nothing. Freedom my a*!. The object of war is to kill your enemy, then take what they had and use it for your countries benefit. Strength is the only thing they respect in that part of the world. We show only weakness and the ability to fail. I praise him and our other fellow servicemen for their bravery, but enough is enough. If we are merely going to let them get killed a few at a time, for no reason then we should not be there. The Iraqi's should pay us 1.3 trillion in reparations. If they had stood up to Saddam and overthrew his hitler like regime then our forces would not of had to go into Iraq. They are a country of cowards, let us do the dying and fighting then insult us with their lack of respect. Turn the entire middle east into a parking lot. Nuke Iran, before they can do the same to Israel. Maybe OPEC would then stop ripping us off.
