Wow there are some freaking loons on this board. I mean out of their God forsaken minds loons.
Franco, you really should go back to posting as your dog because you were much more likable back then. Now every time you post I just wonder if I should ask hard it was to wire up Internet down in that bunker of yours and if you could please release that little boy back to his parents.
Turning what RP said into a theology discussion is stupid. The outrage isn't about a Bible passage it's because he basically said that the man deserved to die that way and that's a very stupid thing to say.
RP is against war, period. He used a Bible quote to back up what he thinks.
Why is that so hard for the RTF echo chamber to undertsand? He didn't say anything about the man deserving to die. The echo chamber must have a reading disability!
IMO, the volunteer service has created a mercenary group, unlike the draftees of the pre-Vietnam era.
You accused RP of lining his pockets and had nothing, zero, zilich to back it up. You prefer your establishment Repubs. None of your Establishment guys have ever turned down Federal money unlike RP! And, just look at where your guys have gotten us as a nation! No wonder you like living in the past, you know little of the present.
Of couse you would Marv, you've been out of touch with reality for some time now.
I have felt that a rise in the PTSD has been due to the fact that we haven't had a "just war" since WW1. Since then the government has been more and more bold forcing our soldiers to strike civilian targets with ground, air, and drone attacks. That has to weigh heavily on our men and women. Our interventionist policy uses our soldiers for political gain under the banner of a war on terror.
I voted for W and McCain, I used to believe war was something that is always needed if the US is involved. But since Afghanistan part two I have rethought our views and realized that we are just starting an endless war in the Middle East. Those folks are all crazy and we are not going to fix things. Here we are supporting rebels in Syria that are burning Christians and their homes to the ground.
All this to say I love our troops, and blindly supporting our leaders while they send our troops into conflicts around the world turns them into mercenaries or martyrs of the statists. I want them to defend our freedom under clear direction of a clear purpose. I would say the biggest attacks on our freedoms are stateside, not in the ME
