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

Dear Soldier,

The war that you are fighting should have ended a decade ago. It has only been continued because it allows U.S. government officials to raid the treasury to support the military industrial complex which in turn funnels money into their campaigns . Meanwhile as you sweat and bleed in the desert, your most senior commander was caught in an affair. Instead of facing justice under the UCMJ he was sent to Afghanistan so that he would be out of the public eye until his criminal activity is forgotten. This affair was discovered as a result of the investigation of a former senior commander's affair. These relationships are a violation of the very same UCMJ that will be used to imprison you if you are involved in a combat action that the American press deems unacceptable.

Christmas for Americans is traditionally a time for families to be together, yet you are denied even this simple pleasure so that the politicians can continue to erode out civil rights and the wealthy can book more profits on the backs of you and your fellow citizens. I know that you joined our armed forces because you love your country and you want your life to have meaning. Unfortunately your noble sacrifice has been co opted by the greed of a ruling class that will accuse you of "just wanting a handout" when you attempt to use the benefits that you so rightly deserve.

Meanwhile this Christmas the news media focuses on people lined up for "black friday deals," while your comrades corpses are dumped into their graves with scarcely a mention in their hometown paper. Americans have forgotten you.

This Christmas I urge you to do the right thing. Look around you, see the suffering that our ruling class is causing to the innocent. I also urge you to understand that your enemy is not the people of Afghanistan. They want only the opportunity to live without the constant fear of a so called surgical strikes that kill more civilians than combatants.

Please help put a stop to this imoral waste of life and treasure in the way that only you can. Refuse to go on patrols, refuse to maim and kill civilians, and target your field grade and general officers. It is the only moral choice.

God Bless you and Merry Christmas,

A Veteran

A Million Thanks (link) seems to be offering a similar way to send cards and letters. However, the deadline for Christmas cards was today. You can still hit on a random soldier though - Valentine's Day cards will be accepted until January 15.

zorlack7: The "Hero" tag for paid murderers raping and pillaging stuff that is none of our business on the other side of the globe?


How does one rape "stuff"? "Stuff" has no feelings. So, it is not like they are raping people, right? Then they have the common courtesy to pillage what they have raped so the people do not have to use sperm-stuffed stuff--that seems rather nice of them. Amirite?

This just in from the other side of the globe---a "stuff rape" update--you are a farktard.
