Salute to the soldier!  Too bad that a Kenyan dude who doesn't like the US constitution got to hold the medal during the ceremony, though.

Its always nice to know that in a moment where we recognize this man's extraordinary heroism in service to our country, that we recognize what is even more important: Trolling FARK.

Yeah, yeah, I know, welcome to FARK. Doesn't mean you can't put away the keyboard and show a little class for once.

PunGent: Lee Jackson Beauregard: [54x11 from http://img1.fark.net/images/2001/topics/hero.gif image 54x11] I won't argue with.

But who the hell had the bright idea of putting Combat Outpost Keating "at the bottom of a valley and surrounded by high mountains", to quote TFA?

THIS.

Downblunder: Just out of curiosity, do American's realise other countries don't treat their soldiers like hero's? Seeing all the hero tag posts on Fark for vets and stuff like that time Colbert had an audience full of returning Iraq vets seems weird to me.

From an external observer it kinda plays into the stereotype of the US being a little too in love with war as a concept.


From an external standpoint, your country seems to be full of racists.

/Kinda trolling, does it count if it's true?

They don't?

Would this be a bad time to point out that the plural of hero is not "hero's", but "heroes"?  English mother-farker, do you speak it?

In reality pretty much every country in the world does treat soldiers like heroes, especially when they face danger in the line of enemy fire and go above and beyond the call of duty.  Even Australia does that.

Get off your high horse kangaroo and step into the real world.

NFA: Nothing like using the achievements of a hero to take a low dirty shot at the president. Then again, I would expect nothing more from you.


Give your a TFer I thought you would be use to this but...
