fury4738d ago matter how you justify it. war kills people. people should solve problems on a diplomatic way but what politicians often do ist just childish and retarded.
we as the human race are practically one species and we should stick together. did you know that the genotype of a white person is 99% the same as the genotype of a black person?
some racists should really keep that in mind sometimes

quit crying for those liberals who keep saying no more war. war will always be here as long as men existant, war will always happen no matter what. and children and women will always die in war, casualties will always happen. and what makes soldiers a baby killer, those children will eventually grow up to be men, what difference does it make if they die children now or if they die men later. and what difference is men and women when school taught us men and women are equal in people and opportunities. when has age and gender justified who should die and who should not?

but respect for the men and women in the armed forces who defend the US. My prayers go out to the soldier and his family.

It truly is a tragedy.

wtf is your problem?

Reported/Ignored ... and I wish I could tell who the 4 little asssholes are that agreed with you so I could report them too.

How the hell can anyone agree with the comments 'Blood 4 Oil' is making?

His comments are racists and uncalled for in this forum. This is a moment to say a prayer and respect someone who passed on serving a greater duty than any one of your children sitting behind you computers. Yes, each and every one of you. What you are saying and what you are agreeing to is not 'funny' and is not 'cool'. You are idiots.

You are able to use that computer, and you are able to play those violent video games, and you are able to what that sexual content on TV because of the brave men and women who go out there and put their lives on the line EACH and EVERY day.

I hope you burn, Blood 4 Oil.

well this explains why so many people agree with PS3 trolls (Not saying it's the same group of people)

God rest the souls of all victims of this war and other wars. Men, women, children, elders, gamers and non-gamers have all lost their lives to many wars. War is ugly and it never changes.

Prayers and respect to them all.

The war is a bad thing and the soldiers (most of them) are innocent in all of this, but all human life is equal. Thoughts go out to the Iraqi men, women and children just as much as western troops, if you don't believe that then you don't deserve to be living in a safe and easy environment like the US, Canada, U.K and western Europe.

Well said. Bubbles for you.
