    I don't really think you are fighting "for America"....

    You're fighting for Halliburton, Bechtel, KBR and others.

    If you were fighting the people who attacked us, you'd be in Saudi Arabia right now.

    Saudi Arabia owns 15% of the United States.  They basically own us along with China.

    No one really "makes it possible" for me to speak out against them.  I don't buy that "freedom isn't free" stuff.  It's a bunch of jingoistic hype IMO.

    Countries hate us because of our hegemony.  Look up Cheju or a number of other massacres in S. Korea, under US military watch.  Do Okinawans want us on their island do you figure?  No way.  "Remember the Maine" et al.  The greatest minds in America, guys like Twain, have been anti-war without fail.  

    If you were fighting for "America" then it would look like Iraq does.  As in, we've been invaded and are being occupied.

    And I'd be right alongside with you fighting, in that case.  I'm capable with firearms but there's no way I'll be hornswaggled into a "Bush" war like the one you are in.

    That said, keep your head down.  We're going to need liberals like you to come back and combat the growing feeling of "the liberals are losing the war for us."...
