    The fact that soldiers seem to think leaving means their buddies who died lives are wasted because of political bull**** we can't control between two factions of a religion turning into what amounts to a civil war.
    And the implication that usually goes along with that mentality you displayed is that we should continue to be there, possibly forever, possibly wasting more lives, just to honor the dead.

    Real soldiers shouldn't be such melodramatic pussies and cry about wasted sacrifices.

    Actually...I think his comment was spot on if I understand his meaning. You join the service, you understand what you are doing. You fight for your battle buddy, or your wingman, or your shipmate. You go wherever and you fight whoever but you fight alongside the people you serve with. If you try to make sense of the politics of it, it will tear you apart.
