This dead grunt learned an enlightening lesson just before getting blown to little pieces by the patriots defending their families and country.
The word sucker should be boldly prominent on his tombstone.

Too bad.....but when you attack other people's nation that is what you get.

He is not a fallen soldier he is a dead soldier, lest us forget.

He has become a statistic in our so called war on terror.

Just keep feeding or soldiers to the war....go ahead...keep up the stupidity.

The USA never learned a thing from Vietnam

God Bless this man and his willingness to serve his country. While nobody is more opposed to us staying int hese foreign lands than me, this young fellow did waht was aksed from him and wasn't thinking about geopolitics at the time he signed up.

These two posters above should never benefit from our great society. Go and join the Westborough chuch next time and you can deman and disrepsect dead soldiers as much as you both want to.

GRRRR!

"People like me">>? I am against all foreing interventions, but I have enough shame and respect for our best men&women to support them. It is not THEIR fault what the president shooses to do at any moment.

If you want to show your political dissent, go and rant on the streets or burn flags like the rest of the loons. You are indeed a despicable person that cannot differentiate between politics and the individual soldier.

If you cannot stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

Even if I did...the USA would still be a loser in the mideast.

Rattler, get out on the street and burn flags instead of deameaning an individual soldier that have no control or say of geopolitical situations, but just does his job. On 6th of June some 67 years ago, you and your ilk would say the same, since you would have no way to assertain the situation. Just naysaying and throwing out meaningless garbage you ahev no control or insight into.
Why don't you go and join the taliban and then put your foot where your money is.
This will be my last comment here. I normally don't like to enter threads that is honoring our fallen heros, but the comments from these haters were so over tha top that I had to show that such losers as the one directly above is the exception, not the norm.
Loser!!

Hi Vegan Tiger,

You should be down on your knees thanking Rattle Kattle for spreading enlightenment and sound common sense.
How anyone with even half a brain could support the murdering filth, aka the US military, killing and torturing innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan takes some believing.
How many times do you need to have a president's lies exposed? How thick and gullible can you get?

WOW, the America haters are coming out in full bloom already and midsummer hasn't even arrived yet.

we are a nation of vindictive arrogant people (end quote).

Why are you guys here to begin with. You are a textbook case of the typical leftist European thankless SOB's that have been hating the USA since before WW2 was over. Even the french seem to appreciate our efforts more than you guys. What a crowd of losers.

Again, the soldiers that is following orders here and just doing hteir job has absolutely NO SAY over the huge geopolitical decisions taken in Washington. You guys are just arguing here to deman the millitary in a global sense.

If you had any guts, you should show up at the funeral of these soldiers and say the same things there.

You guys are vermin!!

(said by someone that politically OPPOSES both Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and (soon to be) Syria, but also knows that the average GI has no say here).

Nazi soldiers were just following orders as well.

Look ....the USA is a LOSER in Vietnam.Iraq, Iran Afghanistan etc.

We may win some battles but cannot win the WAR in the long run.

We cannot stay forever @$2 billion a week in borrowed money YOU American RETARD!

I am not anti american....I am just realistic.

Americans are Stupid , Brainwashed ignorant people that watch sports as their nation is crumbling.

God DOES not Bless america ...no way.

Americans for the most part are greedy, materialistic and ignorant.

They are morally bankrupt

Classic.

Perhaps your time would be better spent figuring out how to update the U.K's 18th century dental technology, to perhaps at least 19th century standards. Then and only then, can you officially change England's name to Utopia, and rightfully bash all things American.

You simply must try to understand that there a people in this world who can read and have more information available to them than the average murdering grunt.
Don't they tell you about the little kids and mothers being bombed while they sleep by your ever-so-brave buddies? Probably not. Don't you realise that the Taliban are Afghans defending their country? Probably not.
With any luck you will return from your next visit in a crate. One thing is for sure: you won't be missed and the air will smell a little sweeter without your kind stinking out the planet.

Wow this is so sad to hear the things I have read on these posts. I think all those people who are saying mean things about are soldiers are probably not even from the US. Well, if you are I bet if the taliban came over here, you would be the first ones quick to run behind a soldier for protection.To my soldiers out there keep of the good work because I support you. You guys are only doing what you are told to do. Do not bother commented because I will not read it!!!!!!!!
