I really don't mean to be offensive, but I know a lot of people will be.
When I hear that line, in referance to the soliders fighting in the middle east, I cringe. Our freedom was fought for centries ago, and you could also consider World war II as fighting for our freedom, but we only got into that war because we were attacked by a major power that was trying to take over the world.
As for this war....who are we fighting? What are we fighting for? Osama Bin Laden is dead, so why the fuck are we still over there. It sucks because we can pull out of the middle east completely because they fucking hate us, and I really don't blame them.
I know the 9/11 attacks were very tragic, and the people that did it, are honestly probably dead by now.
This war isn't even a war anymore, its like we're a 10 year old kid with a magnifying glass burning up a bunch of ants.
Lets be honest here...they aren't fighting for our rights and freedoms. We already have those, and to be honest, our government is starting to slowly take those away.
Just an opinion. I have a brother in the army, and he would agree with me. We aren't fighting for anything at this point, other than power over a weak people.
