Hey Milwaukee, don't let ole Horse manure rile you. Just ignore the pathetic old fool. He has no body to call his friend, so he mistakes any reply to him as a sign of friendship. He is so desperate for any human contact. He tries in his own inept way to be witty and fearsome, when in reality, he is a waste of breathable air. Just ignore his feeble attempts.
Will do RH. Although I could call in some coordinates.
<quoted text> "We will kill you in your sleep on Christmas." Give us some GPS coordinates there Habeeb - ever have a cruise missile enema?
Well I've been accused of being an American troll from New Jersey so set your coordinates for either the Whine House of the Pentagram and if you pack it with enough dirty nuke you should get all of NJ as a bonus.
I think we should start a new thread honouring the "never do wrong" American soldiers. They saved us a thousand times over with all of those WMD's they found in Irak and Afghanistan.
You know, if it weren't for them the whole world would be speaking German, Russian, Mexican, Cuban, Iranian, Arabic, & Pushtu - and the Americans themselves would be speaking real English. But this thead is now infiltrated by too many trolls so I think it's time to start a-fresh with a new one, all glitter and gold!
We can include Pro-American Yankee Doodle quotes from such magnificent Americans as Sgt. Ron Kovic, Pfc. Bradley Manning, Airman David Hemler, Pfc. Bobby Garwood, Grant Collins, Jon Michael Turner, CIA Ray McGovern, Ethan McCord, Mike Prysner, Dale Anderson, Army specialist Darrell Anderson, Mike Patterson, Sgt. Matthis Chiroux, USMC Matt Howard, USN Joshua Shepherd, USMC Ramsey Clark, MLK ex-CIA John Stockwell, Congressman Ron Paul, Gen Smedley, and ex-Navy Seal Jesse Ventura.
thank you to all the men and women who have or are serving ... in the armed services ALL GAVE SOME...SOME GAVE ALL
Now go home to GIVE SOME to your own families just like you've been GIVING to the Iraki and the Afghani families. If you do the job well at home then they will also have GIVEN ALL ...... or perhaps I ought to have said that you will have TAKEN ALL.
A special THANK YOU to those mothers and fathers who gave the lives of their children in our nations cause!!!
Yes mothers and fathers. Keep sending more of them. The Taliban, Mujahedeen, Al Qaida, and most of the Third World are always keen on putting your boys six feet under. And gee whiz(!) the more of your children's lives that get snuffed out the more thankful RedButt Herpies is.
It's a win-win situation and EVERYONE is happy. You get to brag about your “contribution”, your boys get a really nifty “purple heart”(posthumously), you get one of those triangle-shape red, white, and blue dishrags to use as a cushion on your sofa, The “enemy” gets lots of target practice to sharpen their aim, and the COWARD RedButt Herpies gets to come back to Topix another day to pretend he’s something that he’s not.
Author’s Note: As a graduate of 1967 from the University of Mud and Blood, I dedicate this to our men and women who are returning home. It’s the same university that taught the Vietnam Veteran. The only thing that has changed is the time and place for the newest generation of warriors.
We learn much and we have to learn fast to survive. It is drilled into us from day one, that to survive will take every instinct within us to be maximized. We train, we exist, we are taught to adapt, improvise, and overcome on the field of battle. We exercise our right to live by minimizing the risk at hand whatever the cost or consequence. We fight to win and we live in a whole other world, a world of survival.
The time will come when we leave the smoke and fire and the tragic loss of war. We enter into a world that is now unfamiliar to us. We are expected to fit in. We are square pegs now expected to fit into round holes of society.
One day, we are in harms way on the battlefield. The next day we are walking the streets of home. We were taught well to fight, to endure hardships, to kill, to live in extreme conditions and to suppress emotion. We were taught well in the ways of war.
We were never taught how to return back home.
We were the students of war.
I pray that it will be different for the new generation of graduates.

Thank you to all the men and women who have or are serving with honor in the armed services of the free world. May your days be safe and peaceful. Warriors, come home soon to those who love, honor, respect and miss you.
I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing, and I am no stranger to accounts of military fetishes in action.
Aside from me not thanking that soldier for his service – verbally or otherwise – I immediately thought of four things.
One, what service did this soldier actually render to the United States? If merely drawing a paycheck from the government is rendering service, then we ought to thank every government bureaucrat for his service, including TSA goons. Did this soldier actually do anything to defend the United States, secure its borders, guard its shores, patrol its coasts, or enforce a no-fly zone over U.S. skies? How can someone blindly say "thank you for your service" when he doesn’t know what service was rendered?
Two, is there anything that U.S. soldiers could do to bring the military into disfavor? I can’t think of anything. Atrocities are dismissed as collateral damage in a moment of passion in the heat of battle by just a few bad apples. Unjust wars, we are told, are solely the fault of politicians not the soldiers that do the actual fighting. Paul Tibbets and his crew are seen as heroes for dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Before he died, Tibbets even said that he had no second thoughts and would do it again. I suspect that if the United States dropped an atomic bomb tomorrow on Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing everyone and everything, and declaring the war on terror over and won, a majority of Americans would applaud the Air Force crew that dropped the bomb and give them a ticker-tape parade.
Three, why is it that Americans only thank American military personnel for their service? Shouldn’t foreign military personnel be thanked for service to their country? What American military worshippers really believe is that foreign military personnel should only be thanked for service to their government when their government acts in the interests of the United States. Foreign soldiers are looked upon as heroic if they refuse to obey a military order to shoot or kill at the behest of their government as long as such an order is seen as not in the interests of the United States. U.S. soldiers, however, are always expected to obey orders, even if it means going to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, or Libya under false pretenses.
And four, what is a Vietnamese man – who most certainly has relatives, or friends or neighbors of relatives, that were killed or injured by U.S. bombs and bullets during the Vietnam War – doing joining the U.S. military where he can be sent to shoot and bomb foreigners like the U.S. military did to his people? And aside from these four things, I’m afraid I must also say: Sorry, soldiers, I don’t thank you for your service.
I don’t thank you for your service in fighting foreign wars.
I don’t thank you for your service in fighting without a congressional declaration of war.
I don’t thank you for your service in bombing and destroying Iraq and Afghanistan.
I don’t thank you for your service in killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans.
I don’t thank you for your service in expanding the war on terror to Pakistan and Yemen.
I don’t thank you for your service in occupying over 150 countries around the world.
I don’t thank you for your service in garrisoning the planet with over 1,000 military bases.
I don’t thank you for your service in defending our freedoms when you do nothing of the kind.
I don’t thank you for your service as part of the president’s personal attack force to bomb, invade, occupy, and otherwise bring death and destruction to any country he deems necessary.
