    are his body parts in those sand bags ??

    bigjoe2k7

    Hey Munch, why don’t you go ask those soldiers paying respects to their fallen brother if his parts are in the sandbags. When they get done kicking the holy hell outta you, if you still have teeth left and can speak, give us your answer.

    FYI I made the comment to see how fast one of “you” would reply. It’s a good thing there are hundreds of miles between me and you. 🙂

    Doesn’t matter what country your from. Making fun of a solider’s memorial still makes you a douche.

    In before Ismael making a prick out of himself. Also, poor soldiers. The saluting ones, I mean. One of their friends is dead, and that always just plain sucks.

    i hate that these people keep dying. i really, sincerely do. but.. i don’t get it.

    why join the military?

    and why are people so shocked that soldiers are dying?

    it’s like being surprised you caught a fish after baiting your hook and dropping your line.

    GrandAdmiralThrawn: If you’re going to argue that sort of semantics, then what you consider “soldiers” are correctly referred to as “infantrymen”, at which point the term “soldier” can be bumped back to a generic term referring to any member of the armed forces. Ergo, still soldiers. Not that I’d ever argue that sort of semantics mind you. I’m sticking to the, “Losing a friend sucks” side of things. silverflux: I don’t have any specific figures, but I believe that the overwhelming majority of people who enlist in the armed forces are not doing it for the purpose of getting killed.… Read more »

    Sure blows, but I’d still say he was fair game – he did, after all, invade a foreign country. I mean – what would the Americans among you guys do if towel-headed sand niggers were occupying Murika?

    FlyingMantisShrimp

    Wow. Sand niggers, eh? Really? Coming from the guy who was spewing hatred of American soldiers for indiscriminately killing foreigners? Hello, hypocrisy!

    And as for the whole “Marines vs. Soldiers” thing, it’s not just an argument on semantics. Marines themselves will usually tell you that they’re Marines, not Soldiers. The term Soldier is used to refer to a member of the Army.

    I know that doesn’t really make sense from a purely semantic view, but that’s just how things are in the military.

    how’re we gonna catch them million terrorists if our soldiers are dying?

    @FMS: Holy Fuck! So you actually managed to completely ignore all the irony I stuffed into that sentence, and, instead of arguing about my point, seriously took an emulated perspective for my own?

    Tell me you were kidding!

    FlyingMantisShrimp

    What point, Gilly? The same point you brought up like 3 pages back that got completely talked into the dirt, yet you still had the nerve to play it all off and explain yourself as if anything you said/claimed made sense? The part where you admitted to not knowing anything about the military, but hating it as a whole anyway? That point? If you’ve got nothing better to do than lure people into stupid arguments over the Internet and rehash old topics that have pretty much proven you to be a close minded, judgemental, and arrogant moron of epic proportions,… Read more »

    Hey guys what’s goin on in dis fred?

    “Oh but mom, I’ll get paid shitloads of money once I come back, they told me so”

    The Joker would find this hilarious, even more so than it already is. The price of greedyness, that or the price of wanting to defend some asshole’s point of view.

    Luke Magnifico

    Dreth…the words you just said….are so, so full of fail.

    An incomprehensible amount of fail.

    ack

    Excellent… a dead soldier rant… thank you my muppet friends, you have made my afternoon.

    So, are we debating the nobility of dying for a pointless cause, a useless people, and in a war that is thrashing the US economy while still making the the rich and politically connected even richer?

    Or are we simply bashing some soldiers who are paying respects to a dead comrade who happens to have died in the above scenario? Which he volunteered to participate in. Just like they did.

    Caio

    “We were just following orders.”

    ack


    Hah! I love that one too!

    That phrase is probably as old as human language itself.

    @FMS

    Alright. To get a little close to your niveau of hurling around attributes and focusless allegations: You really like insulting people rather than to debate, don’t you?

    Hardly is this war brining economic problems “Right now.” Richer are only getting richer in those contractors in the war (fucking dry cleaning for 100 bucks a pop?). The money going on the war isn’t a big chunk of US’s spending, but the fact that we borrowed all that money from China may be a bad thing that will fuck us in the rear later.

    Iraqis them selves are not really useless, nor is the war, but one way or the other we know they’re taking advantage of the war and using it for money laundry.

    Silverflux, if you cant figure it out for yourself and have to have someone tell you why they would or did join the military you honestly would not understand.

    For the rest of those here that find humor in the death of a US soldier/marine/sailor/airman you should be glad that the internet exists; because as everyone well knows if you were to spew that crap in public you know that you would get your ass kicked in a very painful fashion.

    cloudmerchant

    my question, ghillie, was why is there shock when someone in the military dies? you sign up, you get a gun and you go out into the world to shoot people. when you’re shot, or blown up, or otherwise lose your life, people act so surprised about it and mourn you like it was such a crazy thing, as though a piano had fallen on your head completely by chance. you put yourself in harm’s way, you get dead. and i’m sorry, but most of the people i’ve asked who’ve joined the military have said it’s because they want to… Read more »

    p.s. there hasn’t been a single war in history that couldn’t have been averted.

    men like to fight. it’s when individuals are killed that shocks the shit out of them.

    That memorial really take the whole concept of memorials to an all time low. “We will remember him by his gun, his (possibly smelly) boots, and a couple of sandbags.” Na, kanne ich es noch furgessen? Alright… At any rate, “MARINES, LESS QQ AND MORE PEW PEW!” “Lrn2war”. Hehe, my ex-boyfriend wanted to be in the marines. In retrospect, I think he would be successful in that venture because he has an authority complex. Also, I think he has a instinctual need to protect something and when he doesn’t need to he stops caring about it. The irony comes in… Read more »

    ghillie

    Silverflux, you are mistaking shock for grief. Its no surprise/shock to anyone whether soldier or family member of soldier when a soldier dies in combat. Please dont try to equate the military to a cult. To do so insults those qho have served and shows you to be ignorant and not deserving of the freedoms you have and enjoy. It also shows you to be the exact person that John Stewart Mill was describing when he said.. ‘War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks… Read more »

    cloudmerchant

    that’s right. i don’t deserve freedom because i don’t agree with war and killing and bullying.

    ghillie

    Silverflux you deserve freedom as much as the next guy. What you and all the other people who think/believe that war is never the answer deserve is a reality check. In fact if it were not for war you would not live in the society you currently do being able to enjoy the freedoms you do. People who think that war is never the answer are the destroyers of civilization. Like parasites they take every advantage of a society created and maintained by their betters. They drain as much as they can, and replace it with a crude solipsism and… Read more »
