If anyone would like to NOT only trade places with me, other spouses, mothers/fathers etc....for 1 week of the possible normalcy that you have in your life, then please let us know. Actually, TRADE places with these soldiers who get knocked down everyday for wearing a military uniform and have to see their comrades get KIA in front of their own eyes, get injured themselves (just like my husband recently did with the 2 that were KIA with him in August).Have you gone thru an emergency notification process? Have you had someone knock on your door to say someone that you think is out there fighting this country is coming home in a bodybag? Until you can actually live this life of a spouse, child, soldier then you haven't faced a thing. This article was to remind everyone out there that we are still in existence after almost 1 year without an extra hand. Thank goodness for my parents, friends @ the American Legion and a few select friends or I too would have to sit on the sidewalk with the rest who claim "disabled" cause they can't spell their own name.


Your living in a fantasy world. But thats the true "American dream".....Fantasy.

Why don't you freaks crawl back into your hole so we can shed light on the true hero's of America? I have heard enough about these Jessee Ventura stories already and your assessment of the Afghanistan War makes no sense at all.

And so you've figured it out as to why we're really in Afghanistan? puh-leeze! Keep believing the BS and "Support The Troops" fighting for what you think they are, whatever that is-you pathetic fool!
True heroes don't unquestionably get led into war, serving a government that got us into it with blatant bold face lies.
True war heroes are those who fought in just wars for righteous reasons of defense against invaders and those who would take us over and enslave us. I don't see any American war heroes since 1812. Henry David Thoreau was also a hero, for going to jail rather than be made to support an unjust war. But I suppose you would call him a freak. I say 'freak' describes any soldier who loves battle so much he re-enlists over and over and cares not about the truth as to why it's going on and the fact that he's just a pawn in a big game, a piece of military equipment owned by the powers that be which are not true Americans but puppetmasters pulling the strings on the presidents etc. and lining their pockets with profits from the shed blood of the fools that buy the lies and believe they're doing good, fighting for the good guys.

No one in the military today which now includes the "National Guard" can rightfully be called a hero. Ventura isn't a hero because he enlisted in the Navy and could have seen battle in Vietnam but didn't have to. Vietnam like Korea and the Gulf wars and Afghanistan were not declared wars by Congress anyhow. WWII was the last one officially declared, and yet that was also based on lies and deception- read the book Day of Deceit which exposes the truth about Pearl Harbor. Of course it wasn't an inside job like 9/11 but it was allowed to happen. Treason is how Congress funds these so-called wars without constitutionally declaring them. That's not opinion but simply the law! Ventura is a patriot for telling some truth about Uncle Sham, how he and so many others take an oath to support and defend something they don't even read or care about, and for realizing from his experience in politics and (fake) pro-wrestling that most top politics are involved in a phony charade putting on an act, just as he did in the wrestling ring with his actor opponents, a stuntman/gladiator show that the audience members either don't know is only entertainment or don't care. Rush Limbaugh admitted that he's about entertainment, and so have some of the liberal talk show hosts. While president, Bush Sr. was answering questions about the Iraq/Gulf war and then actually told reporter Sarah McClendon on the side this: "If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched." That's why you don't see presidents walking down a street, because they know some of us ain't stupid and can see what scoundrel traitor filth they all are, shills and puppets of the ones really in power.

First, the combat soldiers in Iraq, and Afghanistan, are not protecting any rights except the corporate cartels.
Because there are no rights for the individual in America. NONE.
And neither country posed a minute threat to the Americans nor there non-existent rights.
As Henry Kissinger said" "American military men were dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy."
He knows, he sent over 1 million to there deaths in VeitNam, as Sec. of State under Nixon.
But even when given the truth, Americans will shoo it away for a lie..
Americans,
Absolutely right! Except your line about individual rights not existing. We each DO have unalienable rights that are not supposed to be infringed on by our government-which is SUPPOSED to be by and for US and under OUR thumb, not the other way around as it has become in many ways. But since our rights are infringed and we do nothing about it, then we are partly to blame as enablers of our own enslavement.
"The only thing neccesary for evil to truiumph is for good people to do nothing" -Edmund Burke
Individual rights are always there but true patriots have to band together and enforce them.
"Men should not petition for rights but take them" -Thomas Paine
