    Last semester in English, we read the book War and it's accompanying documentary Restrepo by Sebastian Junger. There are so many feelings that I don't know where to start.

    So I will just suggest "thank you" for raising brothers that protected my freedom. I have learned so much from men like these about the true meaning of love and loyalty. I never knew it existed until I witnessed the truth for myself.

    RIP to the 31 soldiers that died. May brotherhood in heaven remain just as much a loyal promise as it was when you joined the military and may your families find peace in knowing you are another story to be told.

    Such a sad waste of life, what hurts me most about young soldiers lives coming to an end, is that they were cut off so early in life from all the pleasures of everyday life. They'll never be fathers or mothers, never know the peasures of watching a chid grow, They'll never know the pleasures of ongoing accomplishments, or learning from mistakes, all is gone and their families are robbed of enjoying their companionship.

    We should all be pressuring the powers that put them in harms way, for an end to this longest war in our history and we should never stop questioning the real reasons our government sends our sons and brothers and sisters to fight their contrived battles.

    This is just madness on a stick. Rarely have I read anything so deracinated.


    The lower classes send their talentless progeny off to get blown up in the name of a dying, fat empire populated by half wits like you. That is the stark and sad reality beneath your febrile maunderings.

    I would suggest you read Swofford or Junger before making such stupid comments about what I have written. I spent my entire last semester learning of what these men go through and WHY they join the military. I find your comment ignorant. These men could care less about your babbling, whiney political crap. That is not how they want to be remembered.

    This low class, talentless half wit spent 20 years in the Marine Corps so that wheezing goat footed old queens can blab about the evils of the Military-Industrial Complex. You're welcome.
    Gosh, if only we could just give our enemies a big group hug, we wouldn't need a military.
    And, just a suggestion- if this is a dying, fat empire, why don't you GTFO and go where they love fags- like, say, Iran? Lots of well hung homosexuals there...well, hung by the neck until they stop twitching...
