"if he had been sent to Afghanistan"

Yes. The war that was in response to the attack on our country by a group of people in Afghanistan. DEFENSE.

Bud I sympathize, Iraq war was a BAD idea destined for failure. Nonetheless, learn to read beyond the spin and euphemisms ESPECIALLY when you're signing a contract with Uncle Sam. In this case you signed up to fight anyone congress (or the President) deems an "enemy".

HG: "He...signed up to DEFEND his country."

You obviously didn't read the whole letter, he says that he wouldn`t be whining (total bullsh|t) if he had been sent to Afghanistan.

Besides that the oath of enlistment he took says, "I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

Please take particular note of that "..all enemies, foreign and domestic.." part. It doesn`t say "some enemies" or "only the enemies I want to fight against".

So once again, Yes, he did indeed sign up for that.

The moment the planes hit the twin towers I KNEW we were going to war with Iraq. Absolutely knew it. I finally made it to boot camp by November.

"Because he didn't order the death of an American citizen without his right to due process?"

You mean Anwar al-Aulaqi the American traitor who was living in Yemini and recruiting for al-Qaeda? The guy the Saudi news station Al Arabiya described as the "bin Laden of the Internet? Yes, it was unprecedented for President Obama to put him on the CIA terrorist kill list but seeing who he actually was and what he was doing I don`t blame him one bit. Who knows how many lives Obama saved by ordering the killing of this al-Qaeda recruiter. Conservatives would have been fine if Bush had ordered the strike but since it was Obama they have turned into pussy liberals with this issue. Ha ha.
