Big John Wayne - The shame is upon you and your lack of human decency. You are a moral coward of the worst order. Your weak attempt at cynical humor is very misplaced. For your own sake please try to get out a little more and socialize with people.

I'm Isaac's first cousin and you have a few things wrong in this story...Isaac has a younger brother. He wanted to be a cop when he was finished serving his country. We are so proud of him for standing up for what he believed in but this fight will never make sense to me...I lost my baby cousin due to poor leadership!!

Shame those wicked Iraqis failed to appreciate his fine qualities. They probably thought he was destroying their country and murdering them for money or amusement..

To the ignorant idiot named Big John Wayne. How dare you defame the name of my cousin. Rest in Pieces. How can you even call yourself a human being. You are lower than any scum I have encountered in my life. He gave his life trying to help others/us even you. Why dont you join your fake azz president who started this war for his own selfish reasons. Its people like you that disgrace this country and Im sure anyone in the UK (including your family) is ashamed of you. Go crawl back under your rock and allow us to mourn the great life of our hero....

It's always easy to say such comments when you are sitting in your comfy flat watching pathetic reality T.v. shows like big brother with nothing better to do with your life than to joke about real life issues and believe what every news article says about everything rather than looking into issues for yourself and making your own opinions. You are a pathetic representation of everyone in the U.K.

Fact is they are many individuals out there who have families, wives and children back home. Some who have passed away without being able to see their newborn children.

It's good to know they are cowards like you hiding in your mother's basement posting disgusting opinions and jokes behind and ego inflating false names.

Big John? Hardly the case ... you're as little as they come.

Hi Liza Jones,
I might well be all you say and worse but, at least, I never took part in an illegal occupation of a sovereign country and helped destroy it and murder its citizens. Hey, if you can find some good reason for those ignorant grunts to be there, please don't keep it all to yourself.
Isaac Cortez is now resting in pieces, a fate he justly deserved for his evil life. Hell is almost too good for such scum.

The difference is Crusty, that the vast majority of us were against this clusterf**k right from the start, where as most of you were flag waving you troops off to Iraq as some kind of twisted payback for 911.
You lot wanted it and now you've got it.

And are hopefully on the way to wrapping it up, and I know you tire of the whining but if 911 had not occured we wouldn't know each other existed...sad but true.

Listen you ignorant, bloodsucking, little parasite...

Didn't the UK pull out of the war because your people are pompous, little cowards that hide behind your Prime Minister. Go to your local pub and drink your life away because it seems your life isn't worth enough to recognize the price that my brother-in-law paid for the freedom of Americans and others like us.... And by the way...Doesn't the US back you sons of bitches up when your country gets in over their head? Maybe we should think twice next time!!

Little John You fail to realize that even those who are currently fighting this war do not 100% agree with what the war has become. But you know what? They still fight in hopes of seeing their families again. If you want to show hate towards someone, direct it to the powers that be and not the people who go out to fight the good fight. Who still want to see justice for those who died.

In case your close mind has forgotten this war was started for those who died in 911. Husbands, wives, mothers, daughters, sisters etc. All gone within minutes. I guess you would say they deserved to die too. What about your little bus bombing? In your mind did they deserved to die too? Rest In Pieces as you say. Not to mention the thwart in a second airline hijacking from the U.K. Hell, I am sure your thinking why not just let the damn plane fly off. It would not have landed in your neck of the woods anyway. Pathetic.

But then, what should I expect when all your government does is perform televised roasts of the opposing parties.

And no you never took part in any "illegal occupation". Instead you sit on your chair responding to topics you know nothing about. A country that throws a parade for a prince who joins the army while a million others have already died for their country. Lovely family you have there.

Must be easy sipping that tea with your pinkie up in the air. Just make sure you don't get any scone crumbs in that overused keyboard of yours. Wouldn't want you to destroy your only means of "manly" amusement.

We wanted the man who did it caught and brought to justice. Are you saying that you wouldn't want the same if your loved ones died in a bombing?

Hi Liza Jones,
Oh dear, your ignorance is exposed for all to see. Just when one thought that nobody in the world still believed the ludicrous claims about Iraq having anything to do with 911, out creeps a maggot from a rotten apple.
This isn't even a declared "war." It is an undendorsed (by the U.N.)and illegal invasion and occupation of a country never posing any threat to the U.S. This is why the troops, aka the scum of the earth, are despised by all decent folk throughout the world.
Charisse's jerk relative made no contribution to any American's freedom yet she seems willing to believe, just like you, any moronic lie in order to justify his evil, wasted life.
never posing any threat... lol what a pantload, firing hundreds of cruise missiles and enforcing no fly zones/sanctions and have consecutive administrations warn of weapons and want regime change...lol,,,yah somebodies an ignorant maggot allright and it "ain't" her...lol

btw I thought u were dead ...and gay

No Charisse they are pulling out of Iraq because it was a mistake(now we know that)but really I have no feelings of guilt for fighting al queada on the soil of saddam, actually makes me smile to see Iraqi turning on al queada there... but they are still in afghanistan, which should be much appreciated.
