War is War. There are no politics in War. There are no feelings in War. If you were never in War then you know NOTHING about it. War is fought by Soldiers, Marines, by Warriors. There was no politicians, there was no one asking me what political party I was from or what my views were on the War. If someone is shot here in America, lets say a Navy SEAL then it has nothing to do with the politics of war or gun control. War is simple so stop making it complicated no matter what War(campaign) it is. IT IS KILL OR BE KILLED! It angers me how everyone has these opinions about it and how it’s not good and blah blah blah. War was around before me or you or anyone alive today.
We are human and its in our blood. I don’t even know what my point is except for the fact that if you haven’t been in a War where you were shot at, blown up, or saw your friends die, then shut up because you are embarrassing yourself. You don’t see me writing about how hard it is to give birth to a baby because I am a Man and I can’t birth children. Let our servicemen rest in peace, let’s not let there last days be overshadowed by something that has been happening. People are people and guns are guns. A .22 pistol can kill you just the same as 50 cal machine gun or a kitchen knife. In japan they commit mass murder with knifes, should we outlaw those. This isn’t about guns though. This is about keeping your mouth shut about things you don’t know.
Americans have this I am entitled to the world and I know everything attitude that pisses me off. I know because I am one and I am frankly getting tired of it. These men that you talk about, these women all made a sacrifice to their country to better their lives and their families. What gives anyone the right to exploit them for their own personal agendas. God Damn you, damn those who take it for granted. You are wasting your life, you know nothing about the real world, or third world countries, starvation, disease. Bitch about it from the safety of your laptop but know there are still soldiers out there that probably still believe you are on their side and not some old politician who sent them there. While they sacrifice for you there time with families you complain about working 15 minutes overtime. While you decided what you are going to eat for lunch the soldier has to find time to eat in between getting shot at and getting mortared. The only thing I ask for is a little respect, just a quiet nod will do, OR nothing at all.
I guess I get tired of the whole “The war is for nothing” bullshit. Why would you tell someone who has lost so many friends that the War was for nothing. No one remembers 9/11 and all the innocent people that were killed in cold blood. I am forever changed by the War. Better or worse I am a different man because of the things I have seen, the true nature of man. We are all safe, safer here in this country than a lot of places all over this huge world. But we all live most of our lives right here in this safe place. We have simple freedoms like speech and religion. Does anyone ever really care about what it could be like. Maybe you’ve heard this, seen it on the tube but have you ever contemplated being stoned to death? Let’s say your a woman and you want to read or write or better yourself. Well in some countries you get stoned to death for that if you’re a woman. That’s just one little dirty secret of Man that you probably KNOW. There is so much more evil in this world and we are all sheltered here in this big blanket we call America. Children can’t play outside in certain countries because not only do they have to watch for cars crossing the street but crossfire between combatants and insurgents trying to recruit them to be suicide bombers. We are proud Americans who are free to do whatever we want. To the rest of the world we are spoiled brats who don’t know what we have. We have food for our dogs and they are struggling to eat. Enjoy our nice warm blanket, because every great empire falls, maybe not today or in 100 years and on that day maybe we’ll all know what we had.
I guess it would be okay to be normal and ignorant but then again now that I know the truth, I will never take it for granted. I will appreciate the freedom I have earned. And the rest of the world, they’ll just keep on doing what they do. I’ll be in the history books, the brave men and women who fought terrorism and everyone else will just be part of the civilization that was slowly deteriorating during a long drawn out depression. People are going more and more crazy it seems, every week there is some mass shooting or worse. I desperately want to be one of you but your ideals have been corrupted, you regurgitate once again what the tube tells you and once again there are no more free thinkers. If I wanted the same old bullshit everyone was saying I could watch CNN too.
