Forsake our Troops?!? WTF??

Well, there's a new level of worthless ladies and gentlemen. There is an individual out there who not only calls for a reduction in pay and benefits for soldiers, he is actively cheering each soldier who dies. He appears to only be focusing on Iraq and not paying attention to Afghanistan or worrying about soldiers who die in training accidents. He goes so far as to have a counter on his site that gives the total number of KIA's and then says that they "got what they deserved." I am a firm believer in free speech. I may disagree with what you have to say but I will do my best to make sure you get the chance to say it. I may have to make an exception here though. I understand that there are many people who have a problem with us being in Iraq. To an extent I understand some of their reservations. But to openly rejoice when someone dies is out of line. He has a Shoot Back section where you can send a comment. On this page he mockes soldiers who have written. One woman writes in about her fiancee who is currently in Iraq. This waste of oxygen says that he hopes he dies in Iraq so that the soldier and his fiancee both get what they deserve. Can someone please explain the logic behind this to me? If you have a problem with financing the military that's a political thing. Talk to your congress and senate members but when you start enjoying someone's death cuz that's less of a tax burden on you I think you've forfieted the right to enjoy those freedoms that are available to you in this country. I'm sure many people will disagree that I'm being too harsh on this guy but if you feel that strongly about paying for the military then get the hell out of the country and go somewhere without a military so that you don't have to pay for it anymore. Move to Puert Rico. They don't get taxed so you don't have to pay for the military. What's that you say? You wouldn't be able to watch HDTV or play video games there? You wouldn't be able to go to movies or out to dinner? Well, the only reason you can do those things now is cuz some people with guns throughout the history of this country laid their personal wishes aside and put themselves in harm's way for something bigger than themselves. You can only see yourself and that amount of time you get to spend stroking your ego. Do us all a favor, put the headgear back on and then go play on your nearest freeway. When you see the big 18 wheelers comin at you, just run out in front of them. It's fun, I promise.
