Nobody wants to be there, they go because they support their country. I have been twice and the only thing worse than being there is having to listen to people use them as a political tool for politics. Soldiers have fought for the US for many reasons but one was for the freedom of speech. We have the freedom of speech because our soldiers had to fight for it (political folks didnít like that war either). But just because we have the right of free speech doesn't mean we have the requirement to use it when we are at war. Our enemies use public opinion as another tool to help defeat our military. I for one would like to see people help soldiers with their support and keep politics out of it as long as they are in harms way. I know you may think they should come home now and so do many, but that isn't going to happen so lets just keep our political mouths shut and open our Military Support mouths more often.

I am a long time family friend of this soldier and his family and I to was enlisted Army. My heart and prayers are with them even though I could not attend the funeral. I support his and all of our soldiers in there efforts to rid the world of terrorism. I humbly pray that the young son he never met grows to be a very proud young man, knowing that his father fought and gave his life so that we may all enjoy the simple things in life.

This poor kid was duped into fighting for Bush and his oil cronies - not his country.

And that is a sad thing to die for.

Nice to see a person not afraid to use the death of a soldier for there own political message. That is pretty damn low.

He was a patriot and wasn't Duped into anything.

And FYI the United States is getting NO oil from Iraq. If we were you'd hear all about it from the Democrats. It's just another BS excuse to pick at our Commander and Chief.

Another duped idiot pipes in - but I bet you won't be headed to Baghdad like this poor kid.

And here is a topix article - Ray Hunt, one of Bushpigs largest donors, just signed a deal to profit handsomely from this kids death.

Nor will he be beheaded because his cowardly lard ass will be sprawled across his unpaid for couch where he'll continue to take it up the butt from his little tin god, Bush. Anyone still so naive or stupid enough to continue to support Bush's Iraq "war" cannot be re-introduced to reality because they suffer from some permanent crossing of neural wires.

You are right this idiot won't be going to Iraq anytime soon. But after two tours (Tikrit and Balad) and 22 years of military service I think I did my share. I suppose that for the next 100 years if some US company makes a deal to get oil in the future you'll be claiming the war was all about oil. Sooner or later we have to leave Iraq and start opening up trade.

People who use the death of a soldier to make political statements are the true scum of this earth.

When you are looking for faults try using a mirror.

I will dispense with the name-calling out of what little respect I have for the military.

But do NOT pretend you were protecting American lives in Iraq. The Liar-in-Chief threw that bone to the masses but most of us know better now.

It was the chickenhawk cowards in the GOP that began attacking real military men like Max Cleland and John Kerry. So don't give me a lecture about respecting those same chickenhawks who duped this dead soldier.
