    Here's a clue, guy, something the world began finding out after WWI: it's very, very difficult (in terms of blood and treasure) to occupy other nations if they don't want you there. That's why there were so many colonies before WWI, and pretty much none now. If we stayed, the people there would see us as occupiers, as colonizers, and - since they are Muslim - as crusaders...and that means a great deal to them - all bad.

    But I guess that in your book, we're not patriots if we don't stand up for America's imperial aims to occupy other nations....
    Right. So let's drill here. Drill now. And leave the Middle East. Agreed?

    I don't believe these men have any honor. If you've got a problem with someone in your unit then you either deal with them directly, take it up with your commander(s), or keep the hole in your face shut until there's a hearing. Honorable men don't go slithering to the media to launch a vicious assault on a man's patriotism and loyalty, especially when the man you're accusing cannot defend himself. And they certainly should not be whining about performing their duty in searching for him.

    They are free Americans with every right to express their views. You just don't like their views. Bergdahl forfeited their respect when he walked away from his duty.

    Not only that, but it appears this in charge tried to shut them up and then their commander in chief starts lying to the citizens of the US about this guy.

    They had enough " honor " to put their lives on the line by going out and looking for a known deserter.

    Just be honest.

    You think these men have " no honor " because by publicly divulging the true nature of Bergdahl's disappearance they're making your President look really bad.

    You have no place to question anyone's honor, let alone these Veterans who DID server honorably.

    When did the definition of honor change to covering Obama's incompetence at any cost ?

    Because thats not honor, that's blind allegiance.

    The President doesn't look bad.

    I don't consider running down children in their vehicles for sport to be serving honorably. They're garbage.

    No President has ever traded hostages before so what Obama did was illegal. Besides, Bergdahl is a Muslim, so he's not really an American. The last thing we need are more non-Christian immigrants.
