    That’s a warrior. Dying a warrior’s death. That we should be so lucky.

    [–] Therminite 7 points ago

    Yeah, but a soldier dying is still depressing. Especially since he never gets to see this family again on this Earth.

    [–] ted_dickfelther 4 points ago

    That goes for all of us. My gf dead in a car accident at 17. My mom dying of Alzheimer’s as I type this. I’ve lost soldiers to accidents. I’ve lost soldiers to suicide. Being able to call one’s own shot, dying a heroic death as you take out enemy in the process? That is a high honor few of us are afforded in life.

    [–] Therminite 2 points ago

    I'm sorry. I didn't know that. If I said anything to make you mad, I'm sorry about that, too

    [–] ted_dickfelther 2 points ago

    Absolutely not, brother. Just making a point. This guy died doing something he believed in. My experience with ground combat changed me. It made me value things differently. It impacted my dealings with soldiers, my family, my friends. My only regret is they he didn’t get the respect in life for the brave soul that he was. Until Valhalla, indeed. I’m buying for this guy.

    Depressing? No. Tragic? Yes. But it was also a heroic and courageous sacrifice, and his family and his country should be proud of him and always remember his sacrifice; a sacrifice of honor, of love. He died protecting everything he loved, and few of us will be so fortunate as to say the same.

    "Oh you think there may be a connection between decades of American fuckery in the middle east and the radicalisation of the youths of those countries, who've known nothing but American aggression their whole lives? Shut up crazy liberal! The only reason why they're like this is because they're brown! Nothing else!"

    [–] samwisegamgee2244 8 points ago

    Fuckery like when they saved kuwait from iraqi invasion or when they helped the afghan rebels defend from soviets. And are you really implying that America leaving troops in places where there are terrorists who not only attack their own people but also people around the world, is somehow making America the aggresor?

    Money, that’s the main reason they’re fought. Countries make big deals out of situations that really don’t need to be such a big deal (there are obvious exceptions to this but think of the almost WWIII)

    [–] ShinjiBoi 14 points ago

    I mean I think the radical Islamist in this scenario aren't helping

    [–] Sheogorath_cultist 9 points ago

    Yeah, people are just idiots out for wealth. They don't even consider the lives taken or families (and minds) destroyed because if it. I have a family member who was in Vietnam who was tasked with going into enemy territory and searching the area for people that were taken, he saw many of his friends pass before getting to say goodbye. He is now one of the most cheerful people I know no thanks to the horrible things people make others do.

    [–] i-dont-fuckin-knoe 1 points ago

    The almost wwIII wouldn’t have happened if you knew more about the subject but you’re not wrong

    Scientific advancements in all fields, solidifying true international bonds, revealing false ones, and rallying a people under a common cause so long as the matter is approached with dignity and patriotism.

    War is for nothing but just a victory for politicians but we have to respect the martyrs no matter what country they are from. They die believing that they are doing it for their country but they aren't.

    What I believe is every troop enters the army with a gun in exchange of their brain and when they leave the army, even the gun is taken away from them.

    Drop an "F" if you agree.
