arma virumque cano (et alia)
"A recipient of constant death threats, King had armed supporters take turns guarding his home and family. He had good reason to fear that the Klan in Alabama was targeting him for assassination." People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. by George Orwell
The indoctrinated view of a trained killer.
Anon, you say that like its a bad thing.
Yes. You have been trained to kill. It's more of an instinct than a procedure. How many people have you killed? We need to get our young boys to kill for us somehow, so we make it an honorable act and decorate those who kill for us. Which makes killing seem the best thing one can do for their country. Being indoctrinated, I doubt you have any clue how bad that is.
And who exactly do you think trained me Anon? Not only have I been trained, but I train others. But I must have somehow gotten hold of the wrong lesson plan because I also teach when not to kill. I also teach when its legal, and when it isn't.
Gee, I thought you were in the service and that's who trained you. I guess it's just another one of your lies. So if the service did not train you to kill, who did.
That was my point. I was trained by the government. And you seem to think that's a bad thing. You want them to be the final arbiters of who can possess or carry a gun, yet you seem to find my training to be distasteful and makes me less of a person. Training which was overseen by that very same government.
Anonymous, do you realize that to achieve your gun-control fantasies, you'll have to have armed government agents to take guns away from the rest of us? Of course, since many members of our armed forces won't violate the rights of Americans, you'll have to hire mercenaries.
"Anonymous, do you realize that to achieve your gun-control fantasies, you'll have to have armed government agents to take guns away from the rest of us?"No, since I don't support confiscation, or even abolishing the 2nd amend., but thanks for proving again, that you only lie to make a point.Yes, I think it's distasteful that America trains killers and sends them around the world to kill. Often without good cause, like Iraq, or Vietnam. How many Iraqis were killed in the war? I have no doubt you enjoy what you have been trained for. How about an answer to the question, how many people have YOU killed?
No response from the cowards, as usual.
What exactly will my answering your question contribute to this debate? For example, when I post a comment here with a source to validate it, you call me a liar. So if you think everything I say is a lie, how could you ever believe what I say? Then there is the fact that I was brought up in an era that you didn't intrude into other peoples' business about personal matters. You do realize that your question is one that is normally used by six year olds talking to soldiers and police officers, right?
When you tell lies, you get called on it. Like dropped guns don't go off. HA HA HA HA HA When you spout criminal actions like beating people up, you should be labeled a liar and not be listened to. You are nothing but a crook.
When did I advocate beating people up Anon?

Hey soldier coward, when you agreed with every statement Greg made (as re-posted by Steve) including Greg's quote that it's fine to beat people up in today's society.You also agreed that revenge is justice, Calif. should be removed from the union by force, lard should be used as a legal lethal injection, I could go on but all know these criminal quotes by now, thanks to Steve.Sorry anon, I couldn't resist.
"Hey soldier coward, when you agreed with every statement Greg made (as re-posted by Steve) including Greg's quote that it's fine to beat people up in today's society." If you'll take a look at Steve's repost, you'll find I reposted my reply to his comments. I suggest you reread them and perhaps this time you'll notice that I didn't agree with everything Greg said. BTW, are you a different Steve than the one who reposted his comments? Or are you now referring to yourself in the third person?
Oh you don't remember me, I'm touched.I read your replies. You agreed with everything Greg said and stated your reasons. Your words speak better than anything on proving you are a lying criminal coward. Thank you.
