obamadidcoke: How is encouraging insider assassinations of flag officers going to help things in Afghanistan? You suggest that we should be valuing and treasuring life, yet you suggest we violate others' lives by murdering them?

I'm only suggesting valuing innocent life. Senior military officers are people who have dedicated their professional lives to killing.

I think if you want to see good effect on target you should aim artillery shells at BN and BDE Cp s. Seeing all computers and video screens explode followed by a rain of flaming officer parts would be way more entertaining than blowing up a mud hut full of women and children. I also think that a few high profile fraggings might reignite intrest in the war. It also might help these officers get a feel for the real risks of war. Remember, the only General who died in Afghanistan was a long time smoker who had a heart attack.


Scott Roeder? Is that you? Or is it Timothy McVeigh? I can never tell the difference between you militant assclowns who think the solution to violence is more violence.

Also, be forewarned, I may forward this chain to the local JAG for encouraging soldiers to murder their commanders in cold blood. I may not. I guess you'll have to wait for the cops to come to find out.

Feel free to turn me in. I think that you will find that your jack booted military thugs have little standing in the courts of law of The Netherlands. Of course your President could just declare me an enemy combatant and blow up my house on Prinsengrach. I'm sure that the civilized world would applaud your cowboy-ish shoot first and ask questions later approach to dissent.

I didn't realize the Netherlands was actively shielding al-Qaeda and Haqqani cadre members from prosecution. My mistake. I should have known better. Carry on.

Sid_6.7: It would be bonus points if your package marked for "Any US Soldier" was not only delivered, but delivered to a Marine.


Marine: a soldier serving on a ship or in a naval installation.

How do they make sure that the cards only get delivered to heroes? Is there a standard metric for heroism in use?

A couple of reasons on the rules - though I think they are a bit dumb myself.
1. Godscrack You are right, the redcross does not have the resources to truly scrutinize every piece of mail.
2. Volume reduction. Those rules drop the thousands of 'lonely' girls, guys and girl wanna-bees from sending. They noted that it is not an avenue for a pen pal. (Story to follow if you ask about it).
3. Country sensitives on content. - I personally did like that we got a group photo of the naked sorority girls from Washington State back in 1992 (curious what they look like now). Many would say 'farkem' (the girls and the offended country); however we do need their co-operation. Some of that stuff ends up outside the base in someones hands who is against our interest - so it gets used in negative propaganda.
4. Demoralization of the troops. The recent past it was seen as a vehicle to send anti-service member mail, gruesome photos of combat carnage - many times either fake or something the enemy does to its own people. Some nice little admin girl an E3 gets that and starts to question her commitment to the cause, believing its something we did. 
Also can you imagine us loosing our lunch over the 'plus size girls are too skinny' poster if they sent that to us. Out in the desert we could die of starvation and dehydration from an event like that.

Okay I missed that. Thank-you Serious Black for trying to reason with this person. I kind of wish I hadn't tried to engage him.

No problem. Idiots like him really piss me off. My life is at stake when soldiers decide it's morally just to blow up their brothers in arms.
