I have read your blog One Marine's View.
I am always in awe and respect of everyone fighting with honesty and selflessness.

But do you really think that all the good intentions and pure motives behind the sacrifices of the US Military personnel can make right ugly intentions of those hijacking the pledge of the troops to serve loyally, and putting good intended actions to use in schemes that neither respects the freedom and rights of Americans, the lives sacrificed nor the integrity of human life except in lip service.

If leaving Iraq is a failure for troops who have lost comrades and made sacrifices never understood by anyone outside the military, then what is "doing and dying" for the profit of a few, legitimized to command the military by a passive "bumper sticker" patriot and disinterested public?

No belief or faith or loyal deaths in their name, can make a constitution or pledge real when the service of them means serving people who do no respect or care for them.

Profit has no borders - the deeds to promote have none either.
And yet it uses the loyalty to bordered nations to make people die and kill, carry the blame and pay the price for it.

Because there is a "Made in USA" on your leaders and commanders in US politics, does not make them incapable of killing, oppressing, and in all ways but the literal one take a crap on the ideas and motives of every troop.

Tell me, how did and do you and in your opinion those of the military services reconcile the knowledge of this with the ability to proudly go on serving?
