India, Bangladesh and Pakistan are all lucky that their massive populations (very difficult to quell popular rebellions and form a large enough contingent of people in those countries loyal to said Crown), distance from their homeland (and British public opinion at the time) drove the English Empire to let them go. Ghandi was absolutely correct in his use of non-violence to make his argument carry weight that was just. He is also fortunate the English legal system allowed him enough freedoms.

This movement was exceptionally rare in history.

What exactly in my post led you to the conclusion that I think war is, in your words, "some glorious example of the human condition"? I'm not a fan of war. I wish we,as human beings, didn't have to kill each other to solve our problems. But that is not the world we live in. War has always existed and it always will. You can't just wish it gone. It's not going to happen.

My perception of the fellows post, that seems to have everyone in a tizzy, is where he exclaims that there shouldn't be any wars. He's right... there shouldn't be. But there is, and there always will be. Young people tend to look at the world through rosy colored glasses and think that everyone should just share a peace pipe and hold hands. Sorry to burst his bubble. That's not reality.

If you think that war isnt mean to to stimulate an ecomony during dire times (money making business), you need to do a bit mroe reading. Aferall we only war during recessionary times!! How ironic.

This movement was exceptionally rare in history.



Okay, Alex Jones

What India and Pakistan did there after was not the question. The question asked was if the needless killing of innocent people was needed in order to solve a problem? Yes or no?

Why is that that companies can work out infastructure, buyout and merger negotiations without killing each other in a gun battle? Yet when two nations go into a phase of trade, they need to kill one another? Maybe its because there is no negotiations, its "My way or the highway buddy" mentalitiy.

If you take celebration in killing people in order to prove a point, thats up to you. I dont object to it. But to stand in the way of telling people that the end all solution to solving a problem is to kill it is being pretty naive in my books.

By the way, the english didnt allow ghandi the freedom to choose, India was a democracy well before they came. Infact, history shows you that the birth of democracy came from some of the oldest religons known to man frome east asia. The right NOT to fight and kill existed well before you think.

Again, back to to the tribute for a man that did his duty!!

I'm surprised no one has brought up Ron Paul's tweet about Chris Kyle. I'm hoping it's a hoax, otherwise, its a good example of someone putting their foot in their mouth, up to the hip!

So if your family is a threat and he kills them you wouldn't be upset? Those people he killed were son's, daughter's possibly father's mother's ect.. Like I said anytime I have ever seen anything about him right next to it is about his 160 kills which I find crappy to talk about. Say what you want you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to my own but I don't think killing people make's someone a hero (unless it is a certain case that needs it like at Sandy hook, but I do not want to go down that road, I am just using it as an example).
and you're just coming off douchey, I know what you're trying to say but it's all wrong and you're going after the wrong people. That Sandy Hook guy was a son to!!!!!

How isnt this man a hero? He is legend.

If you disagree with that then you never served and or gutless and take being an American for granted.

He didnt ask for the war but volunteered to serve this country and did it the fulliest of his ability.

RIP Kyle.

Coming back from my tour of duty, it seems that I was greeted by the same wonderful Americans that still crawl around. I was only spit at.
Judging from this message board, we will never come together again on anything. But, some of us like Kyle will still step up and do a job that gets notice. That's the kind of people that I want watching my back.

This isn't a political thread. This is a man who risked his life fighting for his country. He was asked to do a job in order to protect his fellow citizens, and by all accounts did it flawlessly. At no point should this ever be a polarizing issue.

If you have an issue with war, you need to take that up with your Congressman. Senator etc. Never anyone in our military. They are doing a job that the rest of us are too much of p*ssies to do.

Once again, may he RIP.

Heros are the ones who didn't make it home, all he did was his job.

The best thing to do is not start threads like this.

Contribution for the well being of a nation is done by everyone. Not just a few. Everyone deserves a pat on the back. Some more than others. This is the reason why there is always arguments on who to give the nod to and who to ignore.

truth, everyone has their own purpose and reason for what they do. Some people want to fight wars, some like to protect the home front, some like to invent the technology that is made to fight the wars.

So the only way to be a hero is to die in the act? So there are no living heroes? So a fire fighter who has pulled small children from a burning building and survived isn't a hero? I'm apparently missing the connection between heroism and death...

Come on man!! This should not be about what you guys are making it out to be. The reason why there is tension between civilans and military is because sometimes military guys come off as if the rest of us owe you something. Thats what starts fights.

In my earlier post, I stated that we all contribute to the health of the nation we live in. While one might not serve in the military going over seas and killing people for whatever reason, they work and pay taxes to keep money rolling in so that these troops can have the guns, armour and weapons needed to go out and kill people. Everyone from Docs, lawyers, accountants, labourers all contribute to the health of a nation. Not just military. As much as anyone should give thanks to the military, maybe recognition the otheway is needed as well to say thanks for contributing to the "machine" that helped pay for the vests, helmets and guns that were put on me to do my job! We all do thankless jobs, not just the military. No one should be put down for it.

Just 1 question tho, how do you defend a country by going into a another country and blowing it up? I watched Green Zone lastnight because of this thread.

It should not be about who is a hero and who isnt. It should be about doing a job and being good at it by giving the best effort. Lots of thankless jobs out there!!

Has there been a draft? Did Chris Kyle get drafted to fight? No.

Did he choose to serve his country and fight? Yes.

That right there earns him all the respect that he deserves from all Americans.

He's one of millions of Americans who voluntered to serve the country so people chose not to, don't have too.

All Veterans want is RESPECT. Now when you show disrespect over someone killing 180 men as sniper, while saving fellow Marines/Soldiers from enemies?

How does that make you look in a Veterans eye? You chose not to serve your country and you bash the very people who served your country so you didn't have too..

I don't care what job you had or where you work.

I served 5 years in the Marines, now I'm a Mechical Designer at a top 50 fortune 500 company.

Chris Kyle is american hero. He died helping someone with PTSD, and wasn't right. Where you there helping that man? Was anyone else? No. He was veteran helping another veteran.

There is no reason to disrespect Chris Kyle.
