ER, as a reminder what you agreed with:

It’s not about America being right or wrong. It is about a solider who SIGNED up to be in the military. He was not forced to be in the military, he VOLUNTEERED to be the PROPERTY OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. He should go to prison for his AWOL stunt. Do I think the war is just? No I don’t, but I do believe that the soldiers should continue with illegal wars because they signed up to follow orders and wherever those orders send them.

what do you expect, and why do you roll your eyes when you say this:
quote:
That kind of corruption is a way of political life. Just as the mistreatment of individuals and misdeeds by our gov't reaches every corner of the earth in one way or another. The invasion of Iraq is not the only unlawful takeover by the U.S.


This "political life" is only possible with people following orders...


I was actually rolling my eyes at the one part that you didn't capture in my quote:
quote:
The invasion of Iraq is not the only unlawful takeover by the U.S. It's only the one that made the news.


My intent was to point out that most people don't consider the things that happen that are not presented to them by the news media. And that the news media does not present to the pubic most of the wrongdoing that happens both domestically and abroad.


I'm not sure what point you were trying to make, but nothing I wrote had anything even remotely to do with the comments you posted. Eek

What did you mean by "what do you expect"?? Expect from whom?? And about what? Confused
