I am barbaric for saying something that I would've done. where is your outrage over the barbarism that the saudi terrorists laid on us. they didn't care about women and children they killed in their attacks. I say turn about is fair play. My brother retired a military man and he told me that you win a war by killing more of the enemy than they kill of your team and pound them into submission. You also cannot win a war if the enemy is not afraid of dying.
    You don't have to lecture me on the atrocities of war...my dad was a recipient of the Silver Star w/gallantry...but his memoirs when written in print were a gritty reminder of what war was all about, it also made all my brothers and sisters realize how lucky we are to be here on the planet and that mom and dad survived WWII in the Philippines...war is not pretty or shouldn't be glorified...now the men and women that fight those wars are the real life heroes of the world

    Unfortunately politicians make policy and actually handcuff what a military force is meant to do, and that is to kill the enemy...

    You analogy about comparing yourself to to a modern day A.H. and eliminating women and children prohibit me from taking you seriously or giving you any credibility...

    In case you haven't noticed, you're sitting at the grown ups table now, if you want to be taken seriously, you need to pick your words more carefully

    Point taken. I could've used different words. I don't sugar coat anything, big fault of mine. Although, people know exactly where I stand on things. I could never be a politician because I don't mince words. If I see a pile of crap, I call it as such, not some wishy washy description with the same meaning. I was wishy washy there though by saying pile of crap but really wanted to say something else. I appreciate your candor and I have utmost respect for you. You at least take the time to try to get it through my thick head as to the way I should conduct myself. your little statements to me remind me of my high school wrestling coach. He always told us to act like gentlemen because we were a direct reflection of him. I will try to be better behaved out of respect for you. Thank you again.
