Too Bad...so sad

We wanted war..we got it

We wanted REVENGE.. we got it

These wars are accomplishing nothing.

Our soldiers are not making the ultimate sacrifice, they are making the ultimate mistake.

When will the american people wake up?

You are pathetic and a mistake. Wake up and realize that our country was founded by men who stepped up and fought for it.

How nice of you to post your trash when friends and family of Capt Freeman will see this pop up on search lists trying to find info. Your ability to write this in total anonymity is astonishing. Sign your name and location if you want to stand behind your statement. Or... be a coward.

Perhaps when you die, hopefully alone and scared, no one will remark about your death because from what little you have revealed about yourself in your one statement, you are not worth further note.

Capt Freeman, Semper Fi, fair winds and following seas. I had looked forward to meeting you from what Rob and Matt had told me about you.

Respectfully

Your reactionary VENOM has missed, now slither back into the pages of your worthless bible.

You have no case.....but answer this...who would Jesus BOMB?

What you seem to forget we are a nation of TERRORISTS as well. The USA is in love with WAR, we hate Peace.

What do you think B-52s drop, Candy and Valentines? No old man... they drop TERROR because that is what we are all about..... TERROR.

The USA got its ugly face slapped in Vietnam and we will again in these wars...that is a fact.

I am a veteran as well , but I am not stupid, the US is in the WAR business, we love war for the internal profits...we are talking hundreds of billions.

This war has nothing to do with Freedom , Democracy or National Security, everything to do with blank check Pentagon Contracts.

Newsflash for YOU...the USA would bomb heaven and machine gun the Angels to death if the money was there.

Think about all the nations we have attacked, all the bombs and deaths we are responsible for, we make Saddam Hussain , the Taliban and AlQueda look like amatuers.

God Bless America.....not a chance...not even close

Rattlesnook,,,,,I will be glad to provide your sorry worthless butt a one way plane ticket out of this country. You are a despicable punk who needs his butt kicked.

Thank God for men like this Marine who gave his life for your freedom to run your pie hole.

The Marine is another US death statistic.....he will not be the last.

So send all the troops ya want...

We cannot kill em all, they will simply outlast us.

This war is a huge mistake....a $40 million dollar a day blunder.

But americans are so stubborn they cannot see their wheels spinning in the sand.

I feel sad for his family as well....but we never learn, never stop putting our troops in other peoples countries.

Listen UP dingbat.

Our TROOPS are trained killers....not little boyscouts.

Who would JESUS BOMB....WHO would JESUS KILL?

We send people on a mission of death, destruction and world dominion, we shall reap what we sow.

We are a nation of terrorists ourselves , you fool. We have a body count that far exceeds that of Al Queda, they are evil, we are just as bad.

Now if it were up to me, I would bury that soldier on the front lawn of George W Bush.

Me and my fiancee have known matt freeman for 20 years and he has always been an outstanding human being. I hope you are found and dealt with rattle cattle. because it seems you choose a war as well. a war of words maybe but only because of your cowardly ways. He was an honor student who chose the service on his own freewill not as a last resort. He will awlays be a hero to me.
