I'm a fiercely patriotic person. Yes, our country has a lot of flaws... but doesn't mean I won't stand by her.
I was speaking with a young soldier yesterday - having fun chatter - turned out he was the same MOS as my DH, etc, etc. This other man butted in, and started talking about how all soldiers are evil and brainwashed. That they're being "lead to slaughter" for "no cause whatsoever." I understand some people view this war as pointless - as nothing but greed. But has everyone forgotten that this was also started because hundreds of people senselessly died because of terrorism? Did nobody feel the terror and heartache over 9/11? It was very heartwarming to see everyone band together.. and it seems like it's dispersing fast.
I don't understand how this man could call himself an American, and say that soldiers deserve to die? Why? They weren't drafted. They all joined voluntarily.
We shouldn't mourn the death of soldiers?
