My comments have nothing to do with these 6 young men who died. My question is why the hell are we still in Afghanistan? I certainly don't blame the troops - this is some lame-brained government policy and I can't find any value in our Afghanistan investment EXCEPT 1) Enriching contractors and 2) Protecting the opium crop. Yes, it seems insane, like a conspiracy theory.

    Now, why would a government so "anti-drug" that they lock up MILLIONS of Americans yet deal in the very same drugs. I assume its to fund off the books warfare and/or to enrich a very small clique. I'm wondering who is pulling these puppet-strings and who so casually exposes our finest to fiery deaths.
    You ask what the hell it has to do with the topic and then say your comments have nothing to do with those 6 young men who died. It seems that the death of those 6 good men could relate to any number of things in history, as well as what goes on in the human psyche.

    How much of it was Hoover's propensity for gathering info on everyone, and how much of it was led by Nixon, I don't know.

    But Hoover had his fiefdom, and everyone feared Hoover, because we all have a little dirty deeds in our lives.

    As to Ayers; The little I know of him.....your speculation is as good as mine ("what's his bag, man?", as said back then).
    The WU was an insular group.

    Recall the peace movement was far from monolythic. Bunch of hippie freaks
    The sexual revolution was the best part and I'd like it known that I served on the front lines.

    Do you even know what you are responding to? You took fragments of 2 completely different responses to 2 different people and mashed it up to - what? Call me out?

    Please go back and read each post. Then, if you think I am wrong about something, please present your case. Right now, it's apparent you are confused so I don't know what I can say in response.

    But what about those who actually killed these men? Any responsibility there?

    .
    We don't know yet if Obama's PC ROE was responsible for the death of these six soldiers.

    What I find interesting, I still haven't received the DoD e-mail notification of these six soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan. Usually I receive them with in 24 hours after a soldier, Marine, sailor or airman is killed in Afghanistan.

    I didn't say that Obama's PC ROE was responsible. I said I would be willing to wager a bet that it was.

    So far this week, one soldier died in a hospital in Germany from injuries from a non-combat related accident in Afghanistan. And one Marine from the 1st Engineer Bat. was killed in combat in Afghanistan. Engineer, I'm going to assume an IED.

    Thank you for responding and for your understanding that I'm just trying to make these discussions more interesting and less partisan so we can get "rewarded" for our time spent here.

    May I ask why you get notified usually? Are you still military?

    I believe anyone can be put on the DoD e-mail notification list.
