He never killed anyone. His gun did.

His gun never killed anyone either, you dirty lib.  It's the bullets that are generally fatal.


Bullets never killed anyone. Its the lead in the bullet that killed people.

Lead never killed anyone. Physics did.

Physics never killed anyone, the big band did.

I've always thought you were are an asshole. You think because you are hot shiat because you are paramedic or some such nonsense. Fark you. You work, you get paid like everyone else.

That's nice. Frankly, I really don't care. And I do relish in your anger, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Like when I sacrifice republican fetuses to my lord Satan in the night. Do you have anything substantial to add, or are you just here to threadshiat more? If you don't like me, the ignore button is approximately an inch away from the "quote" button.

Get over yourself. You are nothing special.

I'm not the one revising history to suit his agenda. I'm pretty anti-war in general, and I've been against getting involved in Iraq since day one, but to pull a comparison to Nazi Germany out of your ass with the United States demonstrates you have no idea what you're talking about in the least, and only want to compare the two for an emotional appeal.

Call me when the United States Army is marching into Prague and rounding up everyone by their ethnicity to shoot and gas.

Man, I love threads like this.

Really gives you a good look at both the old-school and new/emerging trolls. I don't ever block people (why would I block the people whose stupidity and animosity toward their fellow human beings is so amusing)--but if I did--it's threads like this one that would allow me to really fill up my list.

The entertainment I get from the fact that there is a large segment of human detritus that can so eloquently bait really smart people into turning into blithering idiots is nearly impossible to find outside of high schools and mental asylums.

Keep up the good work, Farkers, I love your acerbic turd-flinging. It's better than a monkey-sh*t fight at the zoo.

BronyMedic: If you're actually being serious? He's a hero for undertaking a mission which only a select group of human beings, the number of which could be counted in the low thousands, in the history of the United States have been able to do.


He was a sociopath.  If you're heard him interviewed, that much was clear.   In reality, so is somewhere around 1% of the population.

Being imbued with sociopathy made it a lot easier for him do that job.   A job that most humans with standard mental wiring would find difficult, maybe even impossible, may have been no more difficult to him than shooting vermin.  Does that make him a "hero"?

/Being a sociopath doesn't mean he wasn't a hero, but it doesn't mean he was a hero either.  He served his country, absolutely, no question.  So have countless others.  Does it make him a hero?  ehhhhhhh
 
2013-02-03 12:52:23 AM  
At first I was pretty sad about this, but then it occurred to me that this man killed many, many people.  That he died at the hands of another man that was in the same business he was in.  The whole "live by the sword" thing.  I'm not joyous about this like some are, but I'm more along the lines of "meh" now.

I will leave with this bunch of hot air:
It's tragic when anyone dies. Period.
But this man was no hero. If your prerogative is to call anyone who does something dangerous a hero, fine. But by that logic, this guy is no more a hero than anyone fighting for any cause, including those you disagree with. To me, that's a pretty weak-ass definition of "hero".

This guy thought he was killing for God. I sh*t you not. Now, personally I call that a psychopath with borderline schizophrenic tendencies. But if it's to threatening to your sensibilities to consider the fact that a guy who wore our uniform was, in fact, nothing more than painfully tragic in the best case scenario, well, whatever helps you sleep at night.

What do I know? I'm just some guy who didn't sign up to murder people from 500 yards away for fun. Clearly, it's MY priorities that are screwed up.

Because in America, anyone suggesting that the mentally ill be limited in their access to firearms is automatically an Obama cock-sucking liberal socialist who is advocating for the Ready Reserve Disaster Corps to put on their jackboots, and march into homes to beat people with stethescopes and steal their guns for the concentration camps to come.

No. They are not national treasures.
I don't blame every vet who went to Vietnam for not realizing that it was an unjust action on the part of the US, but it was, and any perceptive person could tell.
Similarly, our action in Iraq were wrong from the beginning. I don't blame ever soldier who went but I'm sick of this "thank you for your service" mandate that effectively presumes that blind obedience to some abstract patriotic ideal is a good thing. It isn't. Truth remains more nuanced. If that blind patriotic sense is so praiseworthy, then you have to start praising Nazi soldiers. Again, sorry but reality is far more nuanced.


Where were you guys the last time I took this position in a dead soldier thread? They're heroes for simply doing their jobs?? Sure, they chose a particularly dangerous career path...so did stuntmen...and oil rig workers...and hazardous waste disposal personnel...ad infinitum.

You REALLY don't pay attention to what we're doing at home and around the world do you?  Every farking fiber of a foreign policy is protect the wealthy favored races; WTF do you think the Jews were to the Nazi's?  An economic threat.  Genocide in Nazi Germany was directly tied the economic status post WW1. We've not been involved in a war that did not specifically involve U.S. economic interests since the revolutionary war.... Which.... was a about taxation, but there was no US yet.

Iraq - about nothing but money.  Afghanistan today is about money and probably always was.People have made fortunes off the back of this guys killings....
Fortunes in selling fear to the U.S., back-scatter technology that will kill us to protect us, privacy tossed out the window, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure is more of a fantasy today than ever before, free speech has hit the shiatter too and the media follows all the rules. just like... Nazi Germany.. oh and we now legally detain and torture American citizens as long as they can be linked to something that might be a threat of terror.

Hero's who kill for money are nothing IMO.  People who send kids to other lands to kill for money are not patriots.  People who knowingly and willingly sign up to work for those that send people to kill for cash are not heroes. 

We have become our enemy and we've been working on it a long time.

I could have gotten Osama and Sadam with a simple ad on TORnet, but that would be inhumane to kill our target without bombing children first.

Agree or disagree with the war, respect the service.


Do I also respect the service for the other side who are fighting for their country?
Do I "respect" them with a sniper rifle?
I know this "respect the service" line is a blowback from the cliche of calling vietnam vets "baby killers", and to the extent that happened, it was wrong.
But that doesn't mean you have to swing the pendulum all the way back to claiming that anyone who serves their country is automatically knighted and sainted.
I know too many who signed up after 9-11 because they wanted to go kill Arabs, any old Arab, and that remains a disreputable goal whether you wear my country's uniform or not. Sorry but wearing a uniform is not a absolution from moral constraints.
