Its a work hazard. They knew the risks.
The sad part is they died in a country that is no threat or benefit to us.

If you guys were fanatical Baptists you'd picket soldier's funerals. Same deal. Different message.

???

if wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

if its and buts, were candy and nuts..

(wow, i can make false equivalences and bizarre non sequiturs too. this is fun.)

(i can be a blind patriot, and support the mindless waste of young lives.)

(wow, i wish i could have been alive during the vietnam war, so i could have supported that folly too. something tells me that you probably did. i'm sure jesus and ayn rand did too)

remember: ideology is always more important than reality!

No, this is the wrong place to do that. You've already started about a dozen threads about your religious beliefs. When one thread fails to go in the direction you want it, you start another, and another. We get it, we can see it in your signature.
