Let me guess: another squaddie got injured whilst invading somebody else's country in a war that the vast majority of humanity disagrees with? Where's the "hero" bit again? I don't agree with the vast majority of what the Taliban, Al Quaida, et al stand for, but at least when they get hurt or killed it's genuinely in the course of defending their own countries from an invading army that's engaged in a war of aggression against them, and they have the good grace not to have the cheek to expect my sympathy or gratitude afterwards.

@tedgp:
I don't begrudge you your beliefs. Believe what you want. I'm fine with that. But . . . you're being kind of a dick here and I think you even know it. This man lost his his arms and legs SAVING LIVES! Just what is your definition of a hero anyway?

Jeezuz I was feeling sorry for myself cause the military left me with one lung..well two halves..and I've got a chest infection at the mo and don't have the strength to cough any of the fluids up.

This is just one of those reminders that however pooty you feel, there's always some poor drater got it much worse.

@Ted, not everyone agrees with or supports the military...servicemen/women are used to that - however sometimes you come across someone that actively hates people in the military and come across as really bitter about it too because not only do they not like the military, they don't want anyone else to either.... that's how you're coming across right now.

@tedgp - good for you, now I hope something really bad happens wherever you live and you have to rely on the patriots in your country who joined the military to come save your ungrateful a$$. Then when they get there, tell them you think they're disgusting for being patriots to their faces and see what happens. Sounds to me like you're just a miserable douchebag and a sh*tty person, what goes around comes around.

@tedgp- While I tend to agree- stipulating that it is not confined to Americans- I find it telling that you came away from the story with bitterness, derision and general negativity.

@tedgp - He's not a soldier, he was a Navy EOD tech. If you go to any country that has an organized military the citizens generally do look up to those individuals who volunteer their lives & well being for their countries. (yes, there are a few smaller countries out there who don't) Whatever country you live in, there are men & women that sacrificed life & limb so you can sit on your computer and talk sh*t thinking people actually care about what your dumba$$ has to say. If that's what helps you sleep at night then that's fine, but I still think you're an a$$hole!

Shut up Tedgp. Frankly, I'm sick of folks of other nations groups all Americans into one big ball with words like "...you Americans..." We're not all the same, do don't all share the same beliefs and we don't all do the same things, good or bad. But that's not why I'm writing....

I'm writing you to shutup and stop disrespecting another human being that's obviously suffered and deserves at the very least, a little kindness and recognition, regardless of his nationality or the circumstances of his situation.

Be a little more citizen-of-humanity-ish. Will ya?

Im not an arsehole at all. It seems that every american considered every single solder a hero, an awesome individual etc etc.

It's sickening.

You americans call anything "incredible" and for some reason, any soldier is instantly " an awesome undividual".
