War is not great, war is not honorable. War kills and destroys. Yet why do some start wars at a drop of the hat? We try to pride ourselves as civilized biengs, yet we kill each other for little or no reason. the particapents in war are considered honorable. Yet war is not honorable, so how can troops fighting the war be honorable? They are honorable because they are put into danger because of their leaders ignorance and stubborness. This gets me down to the question: How is it people can support the War and support the troops at the same time? War puts our guys into danger. Forces pain, isolation, death, fear, paranoia on them. It is because of war that they cannot walk, see, hear, feel, move. You dont send the ones you love to be hurt or killed. If you support the war, you are putting americas soldiers in danger, thus you arent supporting them. If you truly support our troops, then you dont want this war to continue, because it keeps them in danger, thus you shouldnt support the war. Think about that

You would think people would learn from past history...

I have really stopped even caring about wars, we are violent and will never learn. It is in our blood, we lust for greed.

Go and give Cindy Sheehan head Grizzly. If you don't support them then it kills morale for the troops, most of them want to finish the job before we leave. The job has not been completed though it is close. Once the Iraqi army gets it's ass in gear we can leave, until then the only way to win is to support both the war effort and the troops, if not, then you hurt the cause. And lastly, I've said this a million times; public support was why we didn't finish the job in Vietnam, any vet will tell you, they didn't lose, they left.

that is what makes them honorable, because even if the war is just or not, even if their leader is an idiot and hasnt been to war, they still go in. If we want america to stay in iraq, that hurts the troops but helps the national image. If we want a pull out, we will get the guys out of harms way, at the expense of making even more people mad. we have been boxed into this situation, and the ones that suffer are our troops. It sickens me.

Yep, I am still in. I cant believe its been almost 9 years now.Time flew by so fast!! I havent been in the sandbox yet, but I am sure if I continue to stay in, I will end up there. As a matter a fact. I am beying deployed in about a month to Germany for a year. The Army might send me to Iraq or Afganistan from there, but I doubt it. If I get my orders to go, I will, but I disagree with the whole "war on terror". I believe there are better way to fight terrorism, and its not with weapons Right now my plan is to get out of the Army when I come back from Germany, finish college, and hopefully things will quet down by then.

War is not evil. War can be good and evil. It is not pure evil or good. One war can be for good when another one can be evil.

I am for war when it is right like defending our country for giving another country freedom or we have no choice because some one wont listen and wont stop.
