Very sad, very sad.

My heartfelt thanks to all Veterans who have served (and those who are currently serving) to keep this country safe and our freedoms intact. Thank you. May God bless you & your families.

The surprising thing is that there are not many more suicides, although I suspect that those in Iraq are usually called accidents.
These ignorant grunts have to live with the truth that they helped murder innocent people who never posed them or their country any threat whatsoever. The shame must be unbearable.
Many are also becoming increasingly aware that the civilized world despises them as fecal filth or duped suckers. Pretending to fight for freedoms is now beyond a joke.
Facing themselves every day in a mirror must seem like torture to those with any normal human feelings.

Innocent people die but they are not the target its a war.So are you saying our brave service men are as bad as Sadam who put weapons aresenals under schools, and hospitals? How about how terrible they are for liberating a people who their dictator (Sadam) gassed 50,000 kurds in the North.You people can jump to hating the troops, but what happend to your "Humam Rights" you support.
