Translation: we need to paint the entire us military in a bad light when two or three soldiers go whacky.
Where were you in saying all the stories of good about our military NEED to be told? Sounds like an anti American military hater to me. And I don't respect those people.
turn a blind eye and remain silent if that's what floats your boat. i always thought that patriotism has never been blind allegiance to people or policy. it's loyalty to an ideal - to principle. if you feel that an injustice has been committed, or ideals or principles have been betrayed, you should speak out in defense of them and speak out to preserve what you feel is great and speak out because of what you love about the country.
hating America is remaining silent. hating America is defending and excusing such actions.
Why do we fall?
