Fighting the so-called war on terror with conventional weapons and tactics is like trying to rid your home of termites with a shotgun. In our case, when the shotgun didn't work, our leaders (democratic and republican) concluded that what they needed was a bigger shotgun. With all due respect to our military personnel, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been disastrous. It is time to end them, bring the troops home, and develop more sensible strategies.
really? what are they really fighting for? another war? well okay, this war is done... then you have another war, and another and another. For god's sake! we are in the 21st century! we are far more civilized than our forefathers. If we can't handle a dispute by talking it out, that we can't handle it at all. My family has been in the army for 25 generations! I'm ending this streak on our side of the family. You aren't savages.
if you dont like the war bitch to congress, soldiers are fighting for their and your lives, if you can spend time complaining spend it writing cards or thank you letters for keeping you safe. think about that while you are at your 9-5 sitting in front of a computer dodging spam not bullets.look at the smilies it is funny/COOL...idiots. congress passes the right to go to war, the president cannot mobilize anything as large as this war so yes he is an idiot but so is congress. freedom of speech is one thing but if you complain about soldiers just doing what you are too much of a pussy to do; to FIGHT for your beliefs; move to Canada or be useful and be a human shield for our people on the front lines.
IF ALL YOU ASSHOLES CAN'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROPS, WHY DON'T YOU GO STAND IN FRONT OF THEM?!?!?!?!?!?
You shouldn't bring this down, this shows respect for veterans and active service men/women, Support our troops!
it wasnt bush that voted for the war, it was all of congress get it right dingfuck
"saw the light"? What the fuck are you talking about? This is obviously left wing rhetoric that shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what the war is actually accomplishing. You have a very ignorant opinion that is most likely created from highly sheltered and altered news broadcasts. You really have no idea what is going on in Iraq. And you are incorrect on your statement "more and more Americans saw the light and opposed the war as well". The majority of Americans are behind the war effort. There is a small minority of idiotic Americans who don't want us there. Among your other failures was the statement that Bush wasn't legitimately elected. Try as I might, I cannot grasp where you would invent an idea like that. What politically engineered news source did you read that from? What bias idiot spewed that down your throat? I give up. You're obviously 100% misinformed and the lot of you could be thrown out of this country for all I care. My service in the USMC was not for you. I didn't sweat and bleed for you. I did it for the people who are true patriots. NOW GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY COUNTRY!!
I don't think I'd blame the soldiers for anything they did, it's all on whoever brought them where they are.
Support our troops. BRING THEM FUCKING HOME.
hey just curious, is it possible to take this down? it was posted as a statement to another member but now that i've made my point i'd like to get ti off the site since it isnt exactly funny, any idea how?
this is supposed to be a site for funny pics. why can't people understand that. and btw in order for our flag to fly we don't need young men to fight and die. humans are a doomed race if we continue to believe that.
Wow. This is quite a charged comment section. I know it's awfully cliche of me to say, but support the troops, not the war. I have several friends who have been to Iraq, and one that's there now (well, I believe he's actually in Qatar this time). None of them WANTED to be there, they're just doing their jobs. Except for the one in Qatar right now, he's on his 5th tour...
well guys ill be honest, thsi was more of a reply to that emily e girl that won't stop posting on my stuff about how our military are assholes, wasn't trying to be funny with this one.
I appreciate the sacrifices of America's soldiers as much as the next guy, but this picture is a straightforward political statement, and not at all humorous; so I think it's off-topic for this site.
