Combat veteran here..... Vietnam Vets Against the War member....Veterans for Peace member... [View all]

I was appalled at the "Shock and Awe" videos of the Iraq war.

I HATE the "war porn" videos we see today. It's truly awful.

I firmly believe that war is NOT the answer.

And yet....

I find myself hoping that the newer, nastier war technology - like the Javelin and the Switchblade and the Stinger - will blast the shit out of the Russians.... kill them all.

Conflicted. I guess you can take the man out of the Marines, but you can't take the Marines out of the man.
