It is very sad indeed! Some of these kids, and they are just that kids joined up after 9-11 to protect and serve our Country! That felt that strong to put there life's on hold and join up after the horrible events of 9-11.

People, please do not take this thread off track into another debate about the war, policy, etc etc. Believe me, it has been discussed ad nauseum!
All loss of life is a tragedy. You can't say that any one loss of life is more or less important than others. If you say that, then you are devaluing all life. This thread is meant as a show of respect. It is not meant to say that anyone is more important than anyone else. Please don't hijack it. That goes for both sides of the argument. Death is a subject which deserves some maturity. If you can't treat it as such, please just leave this thread alone.

Quoting Cairo (Reply 1): But they died spreading freedom and democracy to the world. Surely that must be comforting for their families
In a perfect world, but in our world, they died knowing that people are saying it's a shame they died, and nothing has changed....
im not taking sides on this matter, but it's a bit simplistic to say that's what people think....people dont think that anymore...people are sick of Iraq and the issues it is causing around the world...
a new answer is needed

A) your statement about "kids" is surprising, as they must have been aware that joining the armed forces of a superpower can mean REAL war. I mean, if somebody joins a small army in continental Europe then he can really expect NEVER to encounter war.
B) "life put on hold" in view of that film-sequence ? Yes, I have seen that father, just so proud only two years ago, having both his sons with the marines. And NOW, one of his sons brings home the human remains of the other one.

Manni, I'll keep baiting you tomrrow. It shows just what a sad person you are. This isn't about bullying. This is about the grief of a community, so I sugges you leave this thread. You don't belong on it.
