    If the military condemns the action as they did in this case, I would think so. Do you have a link to the military condemning a hungover sailor?

    I asked for what YOU think, not what you think of what the author of the article was thinking....Don't you see the difference?

    Why would I need a link? You've decided that the soldier in this case deserve a dishonorable, why do you need support to make a decision in the scenario I provided?

    LOL!! Are we not a democratic nation? We are the most warring nation in modern history!!!

    Sorry I don't support military force used to establish hegemony. That is the one thing I agree with Ron Paul, our military use should be used for defense, not offense.
