Americans are arrogant and vastly OVER ESTIMATE their power
The USA crawled away from Vietnam TOTALLY defeated because it was.
Sure we could nuke the world like our sick military did in WW2, but who would we borrow from then?
The USA is WORSE than broke and its UGLY military is harming it more than helping it.
The USA is a LOSER....in Vietnam. Iraq,Afghanistan and wherever it rears its ugly head.
The heart of the USA is rotten with corruption and arrogance and we will defeat ourselves in the mideast...Hide and watch...you dummy.
OUR TROOPS are nothing. just mindless pawns on a fools mission.
Those who have to yell (thats what CAPS in an online conversation are)their opinions across only do so in an effort to grab attention - but this works against their efforts because those of us who have more than 1 brain cell- do not want to be yelled at.
Once you come across as abrasive and arrogant you have lost your audience.
Even if you have something to say that makes any sense...the way you chose to convey your point across as little more than a crazy bunch of ramblings.

The USA is still a sick arrogant nation that is a loser in the mideast.

The USA is a corrupt disgusting military disaster choking on its own lies.

I have no problem with what he says about the government. I have a problem with the way he disrespects the troops, in particular the ones who have died. You can believe he's a vet if you want but I don't. No vet I've ever been around talks that way.

It's been suggested by many posters that he move to another country and, as nice as that sounds, in most countries there is still be internet and he would still be here.

Our troops rarely defend the USA anymore, our government has the Border Patrol and Dept of Homeland Security and the FBI to do so.

Are our Troops heroic as they invade other nations as an International Police Force ?

German and Japanese soldiers were duped into fighting for their militant corrupt governments, was that heroic? Perhaps those soldiers did some heroic acts, they also did some horrific acts.

Regardless all this, blind hero worship is a smokescreen for the simple fact that the USA is a corrupt dangerous nation that is currently attacking, occupying or bombing in Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Libya.

Our government is disrespecting and using our troops as thousands of DOD and Security contractors are laughing to the bank.

These wars can never be won, the troops know that, you know that, I know that.

Americans have to get something thru their thick skulls, we DO NOT own the world and we are broke and wallowing in our own lies of world domination.

These wars has ZERO to do with anyone's FREEDOM and everything to do with multibillion dollar DOD contracts.

You say follow the FLAG , I say follow the money from the US Treasury to DOD corporate contractors that are war mongering more than ever.

If our troops are heroic for attacking and occupying other nations then so were the Germans, Japs and Soviets.

Feel free to have all my medals......as long as you get them the same way I did. I NEVER did anything expecting gratitude or a medal from you or anyone else.
WW2 ...will it ever be over? Will americans ever get over their own victory long enough to look at what they have become?
