@MacGuffin, it's politics that decides who we go to war with. People join the military for many reasons. This guys actions probably saved many others from being blown up. The reasons for being there are irrelevant.

Nice post Gary8162...EOD is an integral part of my USAF Squadron and from the know, Taylor Morris You are a hero.

@IBritInvasion - IMPO: a hero is a random person who does an amazing act just because. Not someone who gets an award for doing his job. Sorry fireman, policeman etc etc

drat your opinion! In my life experiences: There are degrees of heroism. If a random person chooses a dangerous/selfless profession such as Explosive Ordinance Disposal, he or she is a hero right out of the gate. He did not receive an award from the public. He received a reward.... You will probably pass the firemen, Police and EOD "doing their job" running toward the danger while you instinctually run away in fear.

Where does Iraq have anything to do with this story?

Nothing in particular. I was commenting on the thread tangent.

[Al Qaeda is primarily based in Afghanistan and trains there as well, you attack the source of the problem.

Maybe so, but Iraq had nothing to do with it. The US has a policy of intervening in other sovereign nations' business when it suits you, and the enemy is always much weaker.

A few of you people (and you know who you are) are missing the point of my post here . . . deliberately it seems.
1) This man IS a hero. In every sense of the word. He consciously put himself in harms way so that others would not be harmed. It matters not that it is his job or that he was trained to do it. He still did it. That takes guts. That takes courage.
2) Even after his arms and legs had blown off, his main concern was still for his own poeople. Do you understand that? While he consciously lay blown apart and bleeding to death, his first thought was not for himself but for others.
3) People have banded together to help this couple buy their dream house. People the Morrises don't know and haven't met. They did this out the goodness of their hearts.
This is a feel good story with a happy ending. A story about humanity at it's finest. Don't tear it apart just because you're cynics.

"Maybe if the U.S. never stuck its nose in other people's business we wouldn't have this problem."

You clearly have absolutely no idea what Islamist Militants are all about. They're brainwashed from birth to believe that the entire western world, not just America, is the devil. They're taught to hate everything from the culture, values, morals, religion, EVERYTHING, and if they're not Muslim they don't deserve to live. Read a book or something, you have a lot to learn.

Better yet, watch this documentary film about them and you'll understand what I'm saying.

Seems like many of you Americans still don't believe it was your own government that caused 9/11 in order to invade the middle east for its oil. Don't believe everything you read in your papers or see on your news, guys. This is the year the truths are revealed.

Macguffin - why bother posting your hypocritical diarrhea. No one ever agrees with you. You have no chance on changing anybodys point of view. The only thing you accomplish is ruining the comments section of IAB by starting arguments and insulting everybody. Please choke on your arrogance.

THANK YOU BROCKY FOR SUMMING IT UP!

@whodat or you just create more and they just keep coming. Maybe if the U.S. never stuck its nose in other people's business we wouldn't have this problem. None of the European countries have been attacked for anything (since WW2). I wonder why...

The source of the problem is the U.S. not minding its own business.

I live in the same town as Mr. Morris and he's a great person and all. I just feel very saddened that he gets attention and extra praise for essentially being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Why do all other soldiers not get this type of praise? Because they didn't get blown up. If he didn't step on that explosive, he would be just another soldier that nobody really would know. I'm not in support of any war, but i do feel it somewhat disturbing that he gets so much praise for being a hero while thousands of other soldiers, all doing their jobs, get neglected.

[quote">Did you participate in the corrupt election that gave them power? Then you are to blame, not just them.[/quote">

Said by thunderkunt here.

Now who did you vote for? Infact didn't you say you served in the UKs military at one point but don't support what the UK does. You are the definition of hypocrite.

@BritInvasion - US servicemen/women in Afghanistan, myself included, went there to kill the a$$holes that like to fly planes into buildings. Technically, that is protecting US soil by getting rid of a terrorist organization that commits terrorist acts on US soil as well as the rest of the western world. Al Qaeda is primarily based in Afghanistan and trains there as well, you attack the source of the problem.
