You don't exactly join the military to choose what you'll be "fighting" for. It was ultimately his decision.

Oh stop f*cking whining. No-one but himself made the decision to go there to bring "freedom". Right...what a free feeling those Iraqis must feel now.

I really do not feel sorry for this crybaby... maybe if he was drafted but he signed up on his own accord and i'm sorry when the military owns you - you don't get to cherry pick your locations you go fight in.

If not wounded and healthy sadly he would have been a proud veteran he went with anger and pride and came back bitter and sad... A terrible way to die! Now are they soon to publish letters from men spitting at obama and biden??? There are young men dying in a war they continue to fight and could have already stopped, it was won before they entered office yet now try to act as generals... For proof our Lord now brings His army to retake earth from all fools especially the likes of odrama... Go to Adam and Eve seed gathering ministry and on the prophecy and the signs page are the prewritten signs of sounding, many have come and are now coming such as the DC/Virginia Beach Virginia quakes our Lord brought on the same day as the unveiling of the martin luther king statue in DC {With more quakes coming there as we speak, also the Japan quake and disaster all prewritten months before they fell upon Gods enemy Deuteronomy 32:43... Also go to the website both found at any search engine of Adam and Eve in Action blog undeniable links on all pages ... Respect to all of Adam/God

I don't feel bad. He signed up for it, and its the same damn thing people say to me too. May have not known everything that I would end up doing and may not like it but that's the nature of the beast. Once in, take your orders and survive.

LOL.... golden. The people calling him a "crybaby" etc are the same people that wouldn't lift a finger to help their own country. This man is a War vet, a hero and has seen **** that 99% of people on neowin can't even imagine... but they sure can criticize him.

I don't blame him for being bitter. However, he did his duty and if Bush and Cheney did wrong they will pay for it one day, one way or another. Karma is a bitch.

Hey, I feel for the guy, but honestly, he wasn't drafted into the army... He chose to enlist. His job as such is to go wherever the US govt tells him to go. If he doesn't like it, he has the option to abandon his job and get a dishonorable discharge... Is that "right?" meh... This wasn't the first war the US has sent soldiers into with the wrong intentions, and it won't be the last. We didn't need to get involved in the Korean war, or Vietnam, but we did anyway. Those were terrible wars for the US as well, particularly Vietnam. I'm sure there are more in the past that were unnecessary... As there will be in the future... If you as a citizen don't want to be involved in wars which you don't agree with, there's a simple solution: don't enlist.

How is they guy doing his country any justice bitching because he didn't get to go to Afghanistan instead of Iraq. Like I said - you are government property when you enlist - they send you where they need you. If he didn't want that he could have left. I have a few friends in the service that probably feel the war in Iraq was wrong but they don't go running around crying and moaning about how I didn't sign up for this.

I don't blame him for being bitter. However, he did his duty and if Bush and Cheney did wrong they will pay for it one day, one way or another. Karma is a bitch.

They will never get their Karma..people like that always get an easy way out and never have to own up for what they did. I will say I do not blame bush but the people around him that wanted this war, the intelligence agencies that did whatever they had to do to make this war a possibility....

Not true. we have items such as legal declaration of war by Congress which was abused by Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. We haven't had a legal declaration of war since WWII.

Bush should be charged with "misuse" of government property(the soldiers and military equipment) along with murder and genocide. So no. he joined for the right reasons in his mind but was ultimately lied to by the establishment

He isn't a crybaby. I may not necessarily agree with his views...but it is his right to express them. He joined, served his nation and paid an unimaginable price for that service. Labeling him a "crybaby" for his expressed views is pathetic.

I saw enough sacrifice while deployed to Iraq that I would never demean a fellow Airman, Seaman, Marine or Soldier because they spoke out their feelings on the war. Their sacrifices credit their character and persona more then them expressing their feelings.
