GIT....go get them bad guys...do not forget to wear your white hat and silver spurs.

Honor...Courage...that sounds like our heroes controlling Predators as they kill all the way from the USA.

Push Button killers....what courage!

High tech weapons on 3rd world peasants...what courage!

The North Vietnamese showed how courageous they were because they wore our gutless country down to whimpering and excuses as we crawled away totally DEFEATED.

We defeated ourselves in that war as we will in this..you retarded guard dog.

TIME and EXPENSE will wear our sick corrupt nation back to its own shores where it can figure out how it will borrow more money from its own shabby future.

Wake UP sarge....you are just another american brainwashed retard saluting the past as you stumble into the future

Hi Sgt,

You simply must make the effort to grow up and become an adult.
Why can't you see that Rattle is only trying to help you understand the truth and where you went wrong?
You should be down on your knees offering him your thanks for his knowledge and wisdom.
Within a few years your kind will come to realize that you have been treated like suckers and deserved death or living out worthless lives in wheelchairs, depending on others and generally taking up space while stinking out the planet.

All right SARGE.....tell us how you really feel.

By the way you mispelled F*** you. LMAO

I have insulted no one....I am just trying to be truthful.

This soldier should be alive and well....and all the flag waving and memorializing cannot erase the guilt of OUR government for sending him to a war we will NEVER win.

You and you brit loser friends have insulted everyone,numbnuts you and your words hurt people.,But you are too stupid to understand that. There are other forums to discuss the way you feel,but not here and not on a forum that talks about a service PERSON who died while in the service of his or her country.

Wrong Again Sarge, this was a government paid government employee under orders from his bosses to occupy another country. The war was started on lies from the USA that is a nation that lives on lies.

He died for the blundering mistakes and corruption of the USA and those that control its reactive mindless government.

I wish the best for his family and his nation, maybe at some point in time the USA will become a nation that has self respect and is honest once again.

The mindless flag waving and stupid illusions of the average american is ridiculous and gets people killed.

We are a sick nation that cannot control itself much less the rest of the world.

Our troops are trained killers and their support system, simple as that. We will never control IRAQ or Afghanistan but someone sure is making a lot of money on this deal.$ 2 billion a week...that is what this war really is about follow the money Sarge, meet your real employers.

Americans are blinded to their own corrupt evil by their own ARROGANCE.

I find it funny that someone from the UK is commenting on a US soldier with no knowledge of who AJ was as a person and what he did to contribute to a torn country. I was not going to respond to your ignorance but realized his memory and honorable work deserved a response. His work was not about war or destruction. His work in Iraq was about rebuilding. I rode with him and his squad members 5 days a week when we visited Iraqi police to aid in its evolvement into a working organization. If you had ever been to the country/city of Kirkuk you would realize he was a part of what many (such as yourself) are scared to do. Dealing with the fighting of Iraqi's against Iraqi's and not coalition forces. He as well as all of the members of his squad are heroes for doing a daunting task in an unforgiving location with no one really knowing what impact his sacrifices mean to the people of Iraq. You can keep thinking you "know" what AJ and all those service members I worked with did in Iraq but I can tell you that your incorrect thoughts that you spew as the truth only shows your ignorance. I give you well wishes as you live in your bubble of misinformation. For those members of AJ's family- My thoughts and prayers are with you. Erik

GET REAL.....he was an INVADER trying to set up a puppet government. All nations are subject to american military dominion because we are a arrogant rotten hearted nation.

All americans should be thrown out of the mideast....but not before they wash their bloody hands.

Your thoughts and Prayers mean NOTHING....that kid is dead...because the USA is a sick evil nation wallowing in revenge.

Who sent that kid to die ??? Our sick arrogant corrupt government did!

Our troops are NOT heroic any more than theirs

Another quote from an ignorant person who thinks they know what is happening 7000 miles away. Whether we should be in the middle east has no bearing on his work or the work of other military personnel currently serving there. You can think you know what he was doing but I can tell you for sure. With that in mind I know your ignorance while you assume his participation and sincerety to his duty. You have the right and opportunity to leave the US you seem to have this hatred for and visit the middle east to experience it for yourself. The deaths of Iraqis by the hands of other Iraqis is not a pretty thing but it is sure better than one of "ours". I say OURS as he was there not to occupy but to support the US. Once again the intention of the invasion or war is not his reasoning for being there but being a true patriot is.

I liked the "gear up the rear" comment the most! Very amusing, managed to get a smile out of my while I am forced to watch True Blood with my wife.(Ugh...) I am actually kinda stuck in the mid ground on this topic. I don't like overly patriotic people or snobby liberal pacifists, either. Based on the rhetoric above, looks like both of you should strive to see some common ground and reach for a more moderate stance. You each have made valid points, even if you can't both see that...

I am PRO wars that must be fought and can be won.

Example...when we kicked Iraq out of Kuwait....it was neccessary and winnable.

Vietnam, Somalia Iraq and Afghanistan wars are LOSERS...do you actually think those people will ever give up before we run out of money?

Now ..just follow the money....where is all that money going...from the US Treasury to US corporations...most of it never leaves the USA.

War is a business....and we are destroying ourselves.

Greed and revenge are what these wars are all about and we will lose BIG TIME.

USA GO HOME....take your lies and just GO HOME

Hi Cassie,
If you have proof that Iraq had anything to do with 9/11 don't go keeping it all to yourself. Tell Obama and the White House and the press and all the sane folk in the US.
Such information would thrill and amaze and make you a fortune. Go for it. If you get locked up in a secure institution, don't worry. Instead, take comfort that you and the dead grunt, Adrian, knew the truth and he did not live a worthless life or die a meaningless death.
One should not laugh at cretins, I suppose.
Hey little shit, I opposed the war in Viet-Nam as I opposed the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq. That doesn't mean I cowered under my bed when I was called up. I did my job and brought ALL of my men & women home.

I also oppose featureless weasels lioke you who hide under a phony name in a country a thousands of miles away. I wear a white poppy and have a peace symbol tattoo but would put you down if oppertunity presented itself. Unlike you, I was station with a Civil Affairs team in Kirkuk.

Are you are a retired idiot.... no you are still working at it.

Served? No I am not a waiter

Our country is constantly at war because that is how corporate america raids the treasury.

Americans are not winning anything but more debt, death and destruction.

Our soldiers are nothing but pawns fumbling around the mideast accomplishing ZERO.

That soldier died for NOTHING but another LOSER WAR...he could be alive but he wanted to follow that rotten flag to his grave. OH WELL...he got EXACTLY what he was trying to dish out... DEATH!

Maybe we can send more to die before the Stupid States of America goes BROKE.

Actually we are TRILLIONS on the wrong side of broke and borrowing more for our idiots in uniform and their wars.

OUR enemies will easily outlast our expensive pampered military machine.

Are you the spelling Nazi or are you the truth angel? The wars In Iraq & Afghanistan are indeed no-win situations - as was Korea 51-54, Viet-Nam, Angola, Mozambique, & Lebanon. So what? A soldier who serves with honor deserves respect and one who dies is worthy of rememberance. You have insulted someone and you lied. However, this is the USA and everyone has the right to run his mouth.

Your phony name: Rattle Kattle sounds like an empty KKK water bucket with marbles rolling around inside.

Some of your points are valid, but why disrespect the family of a soldier who died in the service of his country? It yakes a real man-woman-thing to stand up the way you do.

Where were you when me and my comrades marched and stood against the war and it's proponants? By the way, we were wearing the idiotic uniforms you referred to. You can't do that can you? Being retired gives me ample oppertunity to address malcontents who hide behind a phony name. You know mine.

I was in the Cavelry and the spurs are brass. I was also a Military Police Dog handler and the dogs were not retarded. Unlike you, we protected the public safety at the risk of our own safety. We work to protect this nation so wealthy moroons like you can live in safety & comfort.
