Posted by: thegreatsage2000 on 06/12/06 at 01:30 PM Question, why do fallen soldiers of todays wars have to be held in such reverence?, last time i checked joining the army was not compulsory, and if im not mistaken killing and being killed is part of the job, and lets face it u.s and british troops, in iraq for example are not dying protecting you and i(it could be said their pressence has made us more prone to terrorist attack), it would appear they are dying in vain, and going by philomelas pro war rehtoric she is o.k with that, which makes the original post on this thread all the more sickening. The above is a response to someone who defended, if any defence was needed, a thread that is running on the London Evening Standard web site, detailing a group of people in the USA who show respect by putting Christmas Wreaths on some US war graves in Arlington National Cemetary. You would not believe how these twisted politicos jumped on this story. The example I give is from someone I would dearly love to meet, especially down a dark alley. This is not posted as wind up, I am gutted, not surprised, just gutted at the mind set of this person.
