GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 29 Apr 12

////I do not support our troops and haven't since they ended the draft.////

So if they started the draft, you'd support the military again?

////They are not fighting for any of my causes although going in to the former yugoslavia to stop the bosnian genocide would have been a good idea had they not been ignoring all the other genocides of nonwhite people as they did it. Stopping the Rwandan massacres and chopping off of limbs would have been a good idea had we done it.////

So we're not going to look at economic benefits as well as winnability in regards to where we go? We're just going to march into any quagmire as long as the combatants aren't white??? Maybe you explained that wrong and would like to try again because that was a load of shit.

/////What we're doing in the middle east is a crime, and that comes from someone whose (pacifist and folk-singing) father was killed back in the 80's when terrorists were slaughtering americans wholesale overseas and nobody in the states seemed to notice or care. We thought the 80's were the decade of anti-american terrorism till it kept going in the 90's. 9-11 was the first here, sure, but hardly the first, and none of it justifies anything we've done in theoretical retaliation. Not In My Name. I don't want them serving and I thank those who keep out of it, not those who go in./////

Whom specifically are you referring to?
