  1. A-fucking-men!! As a former soldier myself I am TIRED of being told that when sent to some Godforsaken piece of shit country that I must treat the little fuckers who have just tried to kill me BETTER than I myself would be treated as a criminal back home, and then when we turn them over to the local “authorities” and something bad happens to them it’s MY fault…! I’m sorry but that the piece of shit just tried to blow me and my buddies up and when the circuit failed he threw his hands in the air! I could care less if the locals took him out to a ditch on the other side of town! We’re in a WAR people, like it or not and it’s time that our side got used to the idea!!

    • Huh, treat the nationals who’s country you are in as you would like to be treated when the Chinese come into Canada in about…oh forty to sixty years from now….

      Oh and you missed the whole point of that image btw.
      Goerge was trying to inform you of why you are so capable of
      murder in the name of the Flag. Or did you skip reading 1984 ?


      • On the note of “skipping reading 1984”, I used to work in a grocery store a few years back. At one point in a conversation, I mentioned “Big Brother” to one of the high school seniors that worked there. Kid had no idea what I was talking about. Worse, he’d never even HEARD OF the book 1984 OR GEORGE ORWELL! How is that not required reading in schools anymore?

    • Wow, someone completely missed the point.

      Wise man once say “An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.”

      Also, are you Christian? Then follow your own God’s advice: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

  2. I’m confused about what you are trying o say M[C]C. Is the nationalist the person defending his homeland or are you the nationalist for fighting in a war because you are told to?

    • You mean George? He said nationalist and atrocity, not soldier and war. There are soldiers who aren’t nationalists, who consider it just a job. And then there are some who try to justify possible crimes committed by “his” side because of bad personal experiences, like doubleexclamationmark above does. In any case, interpret it however you will but I think George meant it in a broader sense, so don’t let the fact that someone put his quote on some image with the American flag fool you.

    • The person is a nationalist for blinding denouncing any criticism of his homeland no matter how justified. For stubbornly ignoring solid proof of atrocities committed by his homeland and/or cooking up weak justifications for them. The type of attitude that was very strong in WW2 Germany…

  3. I just finished playing MGS Peace Walker today, and there was this really nice quote to answer any opinion you may hold on anything related.

  4. “We didn’t commit atrocities, we did what we had to do to preserve our way of life”

    That was the gist of the Nazi arguments at Nuremburg, anyway – that and “I just did what I was told to do”

  5. Wow, American atrocities?! Really?! Why is it always about America? Why don’t you ask China, Iran, Russia, or the whole continent of Africa about their actions before questioning the US.
