    So you agree that your stand on this issue is an example of Darwin in action.
    Thanks for your honesty.

    My stance on the issue is that if the soldiers share similar judgment to yours, their "service" is nothing more than a misguided power trip and they are doing more harm than good on behalf of our country.

    Yes -- and you arent competent to make that judgement.
    Nothing you have posted has changed this

    The position you've taken that indicates that Darwin was correct was that you'd rather die yourself that kill 49 innocents in pursuit of killing one of the enemy. You, yourself, agree that your stand on this point is indeed evidence that Darwin was right.

    Was there anything else, or were you going to just continue to submit posts that do nothing to invalidate the assertions, above?

    Yes there was something else, what qualifies you as competent to make the judgment? Or are you not responding out of fear of hypocrisy?

    I see, so you cannot say that my judgment is wrong, only pull the claim that I'm "incompetent" out of your ass?

    Apparently, I gave you too much credit in thinking that you would understand the term "competent judge". I'll not be so generous in the future.

    You may now continue to submit posts that do nothing to invalidate my assertions.

    I have to agree with Goobieman, not necessarily his tenor of response but the truth of his words, if you haven't served nor seen combat you're not qualified to pass judgment on those who have.

    Additionally if you admit you're ill suited to be in the military (whatever that means as there are many reasons people are ill suited for service including being a convicted felon, asthmatic, incapable of meeting the standards, uneducated, etc.) and claim "religious convictions and morals" this in no way places you on higher ground but reads as if you're trying to position yourself there.

    Yes, you are welcome to and I support your right to express your opinion. Even at the expense of offending others but remember those who have and are serving have done so to guarantee your right to do so. .

    This is the knee jerk reaction that leads me to believe combatants should be held to the same standards as the rest of us. The second anyone even hints that a soldier could act inappropriately in combat, their peers rush to their defense. You say I'm positioning myself at a moral high ground but really I'm just analyzing the situation from the rest of the world's position.

    You also couldn't resist that last line of BS. "That marine who killed 49 civilians and 1 insurgent was ensuring my right to speak!"
