I think that she makes too many generalization. I think she has good points, however there are going to be different kinds of people in the military. There are still good soldiers and there are the same kinds of bastards on their side. And she has no clue what they're doing, none of us do. It severely lacks the tact needed to sway anyones' opinion, so I think its pointless, presumptuous and she harps on the same 3 or 4 points.

Without them, she wouldn't have the freedom to complain about the government.

You know what I hate more than what she said? Sloganeering bull crap lines that are unsubstantiated and unprovable. "The troops" are not fighting for my freedom (or hers, or yours). I'm sure there is a reason but our freedoms aren't one of them. Never buy the sound bites of a politician.

The worst thing you can do in a case like this is to try and argue with those who are like minded with this girl.

The level of misunderstanding and misinformation that pervades this video, and the posts of some of the forum folk here is so vast, that to properly respond would be futile. If a person can be convinced that this is a legitimate opinion based on logic and truth, then you will not be able to "correct" their opinions.

The only thing to do is be thankful that this is a very vocal minority, and like minded individuals will likely never ever be in a position to do harm to the rest of our society with their beliefs.

Actually, she does support the troops by complaining about them. Without them, she wouldn't have the freedom to complain about the government.

Wow. I just got back from overseas after being away from my family for 15 months. I didn't care that nobody clapped or cheered for me when I got home, I was so happy to see my family, it didn't matter. I hate that this woman is generalizing all troops as "dumb, evil, morally corrupt serial killers." That's like walking into an elementary school that is majority black and telling all of the children that they will all grow up to be thieving, murdering rapists. People like her make me sad that troops are giving up their lives and personal freedoms to do a job that no one else will do, and last I checked, being in the military is being employed by the government and, therefore, constitutes a "real job." I support the right to be able to state your opinions, but why not put your compelling arguments toward a cause that is much more valid? Unfortunately, war will always be waged somewhere, so troops are necessary, but it doesn't make them "evil" for doing

While I don't necessarily agree with this young lady's opinions, I wholeheartedly agree with her right to voice them.

i agree they do not protect our freedoms, seeing as said freedoms are being taken from right under us everyday, or worse given away gladly by the ignorant population.

troops are wasting their time defending what liberal idiots give away freely.

I really don't even know where to begin in responding to this video or the posts. First off I would like to challenge everyone without first hand knowledge of the Armed Forces to go visit a base or some troops before positing anything!

I can't believe some of the things I'm seeing posted - 'most troops have never even touched a weapon' All soldiers receive weapons training.

-the three types of people to join the military? They're absurd! Sure the military has those 3 types, but it also has a lot of good people too.

-Does she assume that all soldiers are infantry or combat arms? What about the clerks, cooks, doctors etc?

And I would really love for her to post the sources of her statistics. Really hope it wasn't wikipedia.

"She is absolutely right about the three type of people in the military."

If you believe that you are as stupid as she is or as stupid as someone who claims the military is made up of saints. I will also point out, again, that most Iraqi casualties were caused by other Iraqis. Refer to my previous post for the link. Most people in the military have never even touched a weapon, let alone killed anybody. But please, don't let facts stand in the way of making your idiotic arguments.

Now to all those who are fine Muslims. That rant is not to demean your religion. It's targeted at the f*ck's of your religion that distort your prophets words and intertwine such draconian interpretation. making it miserable for all good Muslims. Just like all the radical Christian twats who do the same like Westboro or Aryan Nazi's etc...

Get my meaning.

Meanwhile, you've got airheads talking about how they support troops but not the war. Get over yourself hippy lib's. The troops all chose to do the job. They knew full well they were going in because they were too dumb for anything else, they are comfortable with the idea of killing strangers, or they were too spineless to find a profession in life that didn't conflict with their morals. All that said, you support the troops, you support what we all knew we were going over there to do. War. And not some grand beautiful war where we're fighting to protect our younger sister's from rape and pillage. It's a corporate war. Has been for fifty odd years now.

continuing rant....Yeah America then you can convert to Islam and then wage Holy war on all of the infidels of Europe, S. America and Asia in the name of the Taliban and Allah. Oh yes don't forget Canada your neighbor up North.

Maybe then people were learn the value of Freedom and what evil really is. Freaking retarded twats who think America is evil needs a freaking cracks to the head. it's not a perfect country but get a grip. No one will ever have peace as long as some twats with a radical religious agenda hang around and want to rule the world.

I for one thanks the guys for having the guts to stand up to punks.

So much ridiculous admiration for soldiers and hate for those who think serving in american wars is dumb. Best part is most, if not all, of you guys with your unadulterated love for the military have never actually been in or married anyone in the military.

She is absolutely right about the three type of people in the military. Her figures on iraqi's killed and civies killed overall aren't idea's she just came up with. They're commonly (Even if not completely accurate) used figures. She IS wrong about soldiers having to assume the enemy is a lesser human, but that's only because you have to be capable of killing someone before you can make that deduction.

I know let's just freaking forget about it all. Let's just cave in to some tribal thugs who have distorted Mohammad's words with their tribal version to suit their need to control the rest of the world. Let's just make sure all us infidels are sub servant to our new overlords. Making all those who worship different religions and especially atheists conform to the interpretation of the Koran.

Freak it you dumb twats who resent America. Let's especially start with Europe. All women will have to wear a burka and fully clothe with no make-up. You look or even talk to a single man with out the family head chaperoning. Then you die. You dumb ass men even look or talk to a girl off with yours. How about when a women gets raped. Forget about speaking in your defense and a man must find 5 witnesses to testify on your behalf otherwise your guilty of adultery and are stoned. Sounds sweet huh?

So Yeah America lay down your arms and surrender to the punks of Islam.

Hmmm...so she has the right to speak her mind on stopping those stopping those who would take her freedom away. Interesting the hypocrisy.

I suggest that she spend a week on the front lines and see if she feels that way. never judge a person until they walk in their shoes.

as a son of an retired us soldier I seriously want to kill this bitch. I dont think supporting the troops equates to supporting mass murderers. It is more like "gosh I hope my dad survives another day in the desert. Support the troops!" I generally disapprove of most American wars, however I hope that every single one of the soldiers make it out of the war safely. That bitch needs to take a look at the pure relief of the families of deployed soldiers when they come back home. however I think shes putiing up an act, so who cares

@Luniz82, you made a statement and I don't see anywhere that you qualified it as your opinion. So it sounds like you are making up facts. Also, just so you know, she did not make up the fact that 90% of casualties are civilian. The Council of the European Union said it in December 2003. Here is the link for ya!
