Trying to alert the military the only way he knew how, he blinked the word "torture" in Morse Code during an interview.

I have never thought war was a good idea and I try to keep an open mind but to say all solders are female villains is stupid.

It would be a liberal (dm2754) to bash the men and women protecting his sorry ass.

dm2754 - Every soldier is a hero for if they weren`t, you wouldn`t be in the Western United States allowed to berate them. To sit atop your self imposed stool of morality and bash these men and women who risk their lives involuntarily or not is to trash them. To believe that every single soldier in the United States armed services is a villain and a murderer by nature is not only shortsighted but is a case of extreme stereotyping.

Gerry, to say the Jews benefit from WWII is a fools statement. The Jews became victims because germany lost WWI...Ironic? Hell yeah.

I think Brittan benefited from war. Or should they have opened the doors for Hitler to rule them? And of course the jews in europe are only alive today because of war. The U.S. was born in war. In fact, many many people benefit from war.

Extremist ideologies are usually wrong. Either for war or for pacifism.

No soldier is a hero. By their very nature they are villainess.
We talk about war crimes, it the soldiers who commit them.
When we talk of evil dictators, it the soldiers who give them power.

This happened in the Iraq war of the 90s also.

Hell in earlier wars we even smuggled toothbrushes to prisoners with tiny wafer thin maps of the area they were in so they could plan an escape.

All these things are well and good, but it all comes from war. No one benefits from war.

No one.

Once the Vietnamese realized he got a message through they REALLY tortured him.
But very brave nonetheless.

I had to go check his Wikipedia page for his middle name, but unfortunately it`s Andrew.
