Right, because Halliburton was not funded by involuntarily-taken taxdollars in anyway when it accepted the Iraqi contract. And our troops played soccer with local kids while you did what exactly? Saddam did try to exterminate the Kurds, and if gun control laws are so essential for civilians logically chemical agents should not be allowed either considering they're way deadlier then a so-called "assault weapon"-M16s and AK-47s have at least two firing options beyond safe Commie, therefore they are assault rifles. Semiautomatic AR-15s are not assault rifles. Ask any real soldier if they'd take an AR-15 over an M16.
For all his mistakes, Bush didn't have our boys gun down a little boy and his sisters for their parentage. And who won the Cold War again-Reagan or Gorbachev?
If you don't like capitalism, don't wear Levis, Nike, or Reebok, don't drive a Ford, Chevy, or Toyota, don't eat McDonald's, Burger King or Pizza hut, Don't Drink Pepsi, or Coke, Don't take pictures with your Kodak, or Canon camera, don't use the Internet, Don't use Photo Shop on your HP, Dell or Apple Computer, don't use you Iphone or Droid device, All these come from capitalism, and if you don't like capitalism and use something produced by it, you're not a good communist.
interesting thoughts, as a communist i often find myself at odds with me being in the military, especially with it's goals and actions in foriegn nations. i like to think i'm doing some good by trying to be a voice of reason for equality and justice in the military, sometimes it does some good, othertimes it doesn't. in terms of the actual wars going on right now, neither of them are very just, i served in afghanistan so less capitalist greed going on there, but still very much NATO imperialism, overall i tried to dedicate myself to helping the afghan people the best way i could and making sure my comrades to my left and right were safe. is this an excuse for taking part in these unjust wars? maybe, i dont really know, i don't feel especially bad for serving, but others might see it differently, ending point is i think if you're in the military you may be asked to participate in actions that very much advance capitalist goals, but as a socialist or communist i think one could do alot as a part of the armed forces to help make these action less harsh. and i think it's good to have members of the armed services that are very much sympathetic to the workers, don't forget the soldiers are a part of the proletariat too!
sigh, it's a steep slope man, on the one hand i feel like i'm doing a service, but on the other i feel like i'm coincidentally defending imperialism by being a part of NATO, it sucks because alot of my views dont line up with the way the military acts, and i can't really defend my actions as really fighting the oppression...but the way i look at it, as long as i'm defending the man to my left and right, i'm helping the proletariat in some way shape or form...good luck to you man, just don't forget where you came from.
thanks man, we keep our honor clean, and if i can succesfully become maybe a UH-60 or other pilot i can be helping by transporting wounded etc and saving lives not taking them, though ive alwasy wanted to be in a position of command so i can steer things in the right direction, sigh it is a steep slope but whatever happens ill keep my honor clean, thanks friend.
