    Sure Hero when you talk to the Draft Dodgers who can't sleep at night cause they know they were just girly guys

    good grief...this just boils down to a "manliness" test !!! just because you choose not to be USED by those with questionable motives, doesn't mean you can't bench press 400 lbs !!

    Read your History Smart A** – VN was an important part in the collapse of Russia and stopping the spred of Communism

    REAL Smart A** people, interpret the history they read, and don't just swallow it at face value. It was fully known what a farce, and what a totally nonsensical wasteful war this was. My brother was there as well, and will be sure to tell you the same thing..

    Remember this Dude: Soldiers don't get a say in picking the wars they have to fight

    Yes, there's some defense in soldiers blindly following orders, particularly when they were drafted with no choice. Much different matter when people choose to blindly volunteer for a war, without first understanding its purpose

    If most people at the root of our current debacle are as inately angry as this fellow, no wonder there never will be any peace...some people are eternally itching to fight....

    "Wonderful, now the anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage protesters will also take on this get ugly and in your face style of protesting you cheer. After all, they also represent the majority of public opinion that does or does not want things changed from the current state. Yeah, we'll really get things accomplished now…"

    therealist, the anti-abortion protesters have been using these tactics for some time now. Take a moment to google ProLife Anchor League
    "Face the Truth Tour".

    I personally had the unpleasant experience of viewing their tactics first hand. In my area they were supposed to have posted warnings prior to their protest, but failed to do so by about 30 minutes.

    Now picture this, 10:30 in the morning on a bright summer day in suburban america...a major thoroughfare and intersection, on one corner a busy gas station/deli, another a major grocery store. People going about their daily activities, mothers with children in tow on their way for groceries... on their way home from shopping..maybe stopping at the gas station for a snack for their little ones. When there, unexpectedly and too late to turn back, change course, or take any evasive action, you find yourself assaulted by people every 5 feet or so holding up 4 foot tall graphic enlarged pictures of dismembered fetus's, bloody gorey images (for me the most horrifying was the head of an infant, enlarged to about 3 feet in size, bloody with the lower jaw ripped off)

    And there you are stunned by such a brutal visual assault, at the same time tensly attempting to avoid having your car hit by others who, just as stunned as you swerve momentarily in their distraction, people slamming on their breaks, basically general chaos And almost the worst part, out of your reach and comfort, your 5 year old screams and cries in horror from the back seat of the car, terrified by the images of dead, ripped apart babies that she doesn't understand.

    I still don't understand how one can claim to be pro-life, while at the same time putting so many innocent lives at risk by their actions.

    This disgusting lack of respect nowadays is so strong, decent people are accosted by these malcontents everywhere. I can't wait until someone goes too far and the one being harrassed halls off and decks these idiots. I just hope it's on camera.

    Frank..Maybe they should deck one of these "idiots" then they can be arrested for assault and damage their carreer. The "idiot" could knock the **** out of them, but refrains, to get their point across.

    Schier..We left Nam and if communists wanted to take over then they could have done so. Nam did't want us there, just like Iraq doen't want us there.

    Kathy..Maybe that bothers you, but seeing living, thinking, defenseless animals being tortured in the name of "animal research" kills me. Even using a rat is wrong! Stem cells are the future and they will work, not animals.

    Misfits and malcontents, all of them.

    I recommend, at the the next big protest, the government fly crop dusters over the crowds of these fine, upstanding sign-carrying "patriots" and dust them with a nice coating of the latest and greatest antidepressant.

    Just a couple quick passes with a fog of Paxil, Prozac or maybe even Wellbutrin, just to perk up their attitudes and help fan away their perpetual doom and gloom attitudes.

    I feel bad for these folks. How torturous for these people, having to hate everything in modern society and rail against and protest everything in sight, and event those thing with which they cannot see (religion, conspiracies, "global warming"). It must be exhausting. They could use a break. I mean, even gloomy Eeyore needs a rainbow somedays.
