I wish I joined the military. I yearn for proper disipline and order. I could have made special forces.

To all you assholes who said he volunteered and quit whining, have never been a part of something bigger than yourselves!! So the measure of a man is to make six figures? Typical "frat boy" mentality. When mom and dad pay for college it is easy to judge. I served six years in the US Navy, got out and raised a family. To all who said you  could have been special forces, give me a fucking break. Why didn't you sign up?  Eat a bag of shit and die!

Those thieving warmongers should be hanged for their crimes.

Besides their own soldiers, dying for no reason besides lining their leaders pockets, how many Iraqi's have died.....?

How many people would still be ALIVE today if not for these warmongers?

Then these same criminals accuse other countries of 'human rights abuses' while they've killed up up to a MILLION people or more either directly or indirectly as a result of their illegal war.

Any other country that defies the UN will get invaded but the USA can ignore the UN and invade.

Do you want to know the sad truth? He signed up for it. I have long thought that I should have served in the special forces. That does not mean that I would blame other people for what happened. You sign on the dotted line.
He like the rest of the country was mislead and lied to!

Feel for him. Signed up when emotions ran high, thinking he could trust his government to not put him in harms way unless absolutely necessary. Apparently he forgot about Vietnam. I've got no problem risking my life to defend my country, but Iraq wasn't a threat to my country and it sucks so many died for stupid reasons. I certainly support the troops, it's not about the troops, it's about a government of non military wanks who will throw american lives away because ....because...well I haven't figured that part out..

I think Vietnam was even more justifiable than Iraq.

Dying vet’s ‘fuck you’ letter to Bush&Cheney needs to be read by every American



To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young

I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.

I write this letter on behalf of husbands and wives who have lost spouses, on behalf of children who have lost a parent, on behalf of the fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters and on behalf of those who care for the many thousands of my fellow veterans who have brain injuries. I write this letter on behalf of those veterans whose trauma and self-revulsion for what they have witnessed, endured and done in Iraq have led to suicide and on behalf of the active-duty soldiers and Marines who commit, on average, a suicide a day. I write this letter on behalf of the some 1 million Iraqi dead and on behalf of the countless Iraqi wounded. I write this letter on behalf of us all—the human detritus your war has left behind, those who will spend their lives in unending pain and grief.

I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.

Your positions of authority, your millions of dollars of personal wealth, your public relations consultants, your privilege and your power cannot mask the hollowness of your character. You sent us to fight and die in Iraq after you, Mr. Cheney, dodged the draft in Vietnam, and you, Mr. Bush, went AWOL from your National Guard unit. Your cowardice and selfishness were established decades ago. You were not willing to risk yourselves for our nation but you sent hundreds of thousands of young men and women to be sacrificed in a senseless war with no more thought than it takes to put out the garbage.

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues. Instead, this war has cost the United States over $3 trillion. I especially did not join the Army to carry out pre-emptive war. Pre-emptive war is illegal under international law. And as a soldier in Iraq I was, I now know, abetting your idiocy and your crimes. The Iraq War is the largest strategic blunder in U.S. history. It obliterated the balance of power in the Middle East. It installed a corrupt and brutal pro-Iranian government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror. And it has left Iran as the dominant force in the region. On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.

I would not be writing this letter if I had been wounded fighting in Afghanistan against those forces that carried out the attacks of 9/11. Had I been wounded there I would still be miserable because of my physical deterioration and imminent death, but I would at least have the comfort of knowing that my injuries were a consequence of my own decision to defend the country I love. I would not have to lie in my bed, my body filled with painkillers, my life ebbing away, and deal with the fact that hundreds of thousands of human beings, including children, including myself, were sacrificed by you for little more than the greed of oil companies, for your alliance with the oil sheiks in Saudi Arabia, and your insane visions of empire.

I have, like many other disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used. We were betrayed. And we have been abandoned. You, Mr. Bush, make much pretense of being a Christian. But isn’t lying a sin? Isn’t murder a sin? Aren’t theft and selfish ambition sins? I am not a Christian. But I believe in the Christian ideal. I believe that what you do to the least of your brothers you finally do to yourself, to your own soul.

My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial. But mostly I hope, for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live. I hope that before your time on earth ends, as mine is now ending, you will find the strength of character to stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness.

—Tomas Young



He did join the military you know.  Getting killed or seriously wounded is part of the job description, no matter where they are sent or for what cause, justified or not. What does you or he expect at this point?

I truly respect anyone who serves and risks their lives.. But I do take exception to some of what he said.. You do not get to determine where you serve.. Why the war is being waged no matter how shitty the reason for such war.. Or where you go.. You serve knowing that they can send you anywhere at anytime to kill and fight for American interests... No matter how slimy..

 So before one enlists for their college assistance.. Or to get various breaks for university.. Know that you can get sent out to fight.. Reminds me of some of the enlisted throwing fits during the first Iraq war when hey enlisted for college and found out way were being shipped overseas...

 I do feel for him.. But remember that the vast majority of wars are not for righteous reasons.. They are for greed and land... The day of the " honorable war"  is over.. You now will most likely will fight for  "American interests" .. Money...

Maybe you missed the memo by the entire marine corps, or as dumbshit Obama calls it Marine "corpse" telling Harry Reid to Fuck off, as a matter of fact the majority of the armed forces are telling Obama and the left to Fuck off. Fuck you Benny, you hate this country as.much of not more than Obama. Your.kind isn't wanted Here.

Good post El Diablo Blanco...

This guy has no one to blame but himself. He shouldn't have signed up if he didn't want to face the consequences but I guess the money was too much to turn down.

A lot of better people, who might have really changed the world for the better were swept off the game board way too early.
