    I will trust that my son uses dignity and the ought most highest morals out on that battlefield in keeping him and his men safe from harms way as he does in his home life.

    Listen here you, don't insinuate that my kid would do differently.Your crossing the line there buddy.

    When someone receives the death penalty it should be used conservatively and when done it should be for heinous crimes to deter others with permanent consequences, as I truly believe it does.

    Instead of paying for the foo and lodging you would rather be a party to his death?

    Listen here you SOB you don't insinuate that my kid would do differently.
    You can call me an SOB all you want bro. I've been there done that many more times than your son has. Further, I never insinuated your son would do that. I simply plugged him into the scenario. You took it as that. If any moderators are viewing this thread, please do not infract this guy for the SOB comment. Its no big deal and he's defending his kid.

    What is YA? You didn't capitalize "Who the ****..."/ it should be two fly ****s, not "to". Your English skill degrades exponentially when you're mad.
