    are simply well-meaning individuals simply trying to be patriotic people who should be forgiven for not understanding that they are instruments of American foreign policy.

    A job is a job, I guess right?

    Maybe you should go tell that to the good American Quakers who work very hard to get people out of the US Military for conscientious objection.

    Are these "bad" Americans, too because they don't worship at the alter of militarism?

      I have respect for COs. I wouldn't dream of smearing them as cowards the way this ass smears Marines as serial killers (do you approve of that, David? Do you?). My best friend in HS was a CO and went through hell because he didn't feel the Vietnam War was moral. And I supported him.

      But thanks for erecting another straw man argument. Hope you're proud of yourself.
