Default RIP Chris Kyle

Nothing to do with sports or anything but I wanted to take the time to say rest in peace to Navy Seal Chris Kyle. If you dont know him, here is a short biography:

"SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and elsewhere. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Additionally, he received the Grateful Nation Award, given by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams, and he authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual."

Kyle was the deadliest American Sniper with 160 confirmed kills. He was shot at point blank range, he deserved an honorable death and shouldnt have went out this way. He is someone I look up to and a true Hero to this country. He will never be forgotten and his legacy will live on. Prayers to his family, his wife Taya, and their children. Semper Fi brother.

RIP it was sad for him to survive one of the deadliest places and to die at home.

Time to end wars. We don't leave it all there once it ends soldiers bring it back with them.

That doesnt mean its not possible. Should read up on Ghandi and his work towards taking the guns and sword out of the discussion and settling a battle with paper and pen.

Im all good with the tribute! Respect to those who do jobs to protect us no matter where they are from!!

It's entirely irrational to think war can be ended when one side of the conflict are not honest brokers.

Ghandi had the fortune of being a subject of the British Empire, had he been in a French or German colony, he and his contingent of protesters would've been machine gunned down for their insolence.

I cannot describe the abject sadness I have to hear about Chris Kyle, he was an honorable man and deserves all of the adulation he has received. His book is an excellent primer of what it means to be a Sniper. Carlos Hathcock's book is excellent as well.

Well did it go down with thousands dead at the hands of a war? Or not when they separated India into 2 , Pakistan and India? It was possible.

Back to the tribute!! War is a money making business!

So we are suppose to celebrate a person who bragged about killing 160 people? Sorry but I find that sh*tty. I can gaurantee that if it was the taliban that sniped 160 America's everyone would be disgusted.

First he is not my brother as I am in no way related to him so lets get that clear. Second I said I find it crappy that he gloats about killing 160 people. Yes that happens when you sign up for military (and law enforcement, armed security ect) but don't gloat about it. Like I said before if the Taliban sniped 160 american's I am pretty sure you all would be disgusted if they celebrated it over there so why should we celebrate it? It just show's how people only care about themselves instead of looking at the whole entire world.

Any time I see his name anywhere (newspaper, magazine, online,) the first thing after his name talks about that and usually says "with a confirmed 160 kills". Just plug it into google (his name) and I am sure you will see it.

That is people hyping him not himself- he makes it clear in the book
That was never a thought of his, read the book and get back to me. This argument is done I'm paying tribute to an American hero that is it

Wow, you have absolutely no clue. Read his book or maybe do a little research before you make such absurd comments. Guy was a true American hero.

there was really no argument, you just don't agree with what I said and I don't agree with always seeing "160 kills" after I hear/read his name. Carry on and have a wonderful night (even though the superbowl sucks so far)

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).

Ever been to one? I just want to know because it's usually only idiots who have never been to war who think it's some glorious example of the human condition. The fact that you think because he is anti war he is young and stupid, is a pretty good indication your lacking in the intelligence department.
