I am a 39yr old Gulf War Vet with two kids and a grandson, I will take that sh*theads place and while I go and fight y'all can kick her headless torso around and play polo with her head. Or we could put her *ss on a plane headed for Afghan land, maybe she could explain her position to Bin Laden. People like this make me sick.

I understand your fear for I have experienced it myself in the Persian Gulf War. It is a fear of the unknown. This is a fear that all human beings carry in time of war. In my case, I wasted a lot of time, and energy worrying about nothing. I was in service, but wasn't sent to war. The War only lasted 2 weeks! "The Mother Of All Battles" turned into "The Mother Of All Surrenders." Don't fall into the same rut. Sure the prospect of going to war is scary, but it hasn't happened yet. As for me, I'm waiting for war to be declared. Once I know that my country is serious I plan to volunteer. Whatever you do-- don't let your life be ruled by fear!!! As for killing it goes with the turf.

I know a man in his 80's who was rejected by Uncle Sam due to the fact that his work as a blacksmith for the Santa Fe Railroad was considered critical to the war effort. He is a huge, strong man with a blacksmith's handshake, even at his advanced age.

He wanted to go, and tried, and tried, but was continually told that his work keeping the trains running was more important than anything that he could offer on the battlefield. All these years later he still feels guilty that he didn't "serve", even though his contributions were vitally important in winning the war.

Contrast his attitude with that of the cowardly girl at the top of this thread and you don't have to wonder why they called our elders "the Greatest Generation". God help us.

It sounds strange to me to hear the phrase 'cowardly girl' actually used to refer to a girl!

When did we ever actually decide that women have to be ruff-tuff-muffs and catch bullets to protect us?

Man, we are in a hell of a fix...

I agree with you that we are "in a hell of a fix". At the same time, the phrase "cowrdly girl" is appropriate for one who swore to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States, regardless of motivation, and who is now wanting to weasel out of that solemn oath.

In my perfect world, only men would take that oath. However, since she has taken it, voluntarily, she should be held up to scorn and ridicule for backing out.
