Name:Soldiers are not heroesCategory:Common Interest - PoliticsDescription:This group is intended to point out the absurdity of the many groups on Facebook that portray all soldiers to be heroes and shower the armed forces with unconditional praise.
Putting on a soldiers uniform does not make you a hero. Supporters of the group generally agree that the wars that our armed forces are participating in at the present time and in recent years are unnecessary and unjust. Therefore we don't feel that we should be pressured into offering "support" to people fighting and killing innocent people for causes that we don't believe in.
We recognise that the government are mainly to blame but also think that members of the forces need to take responsibility for their own actions in choosing to support these causes. Soldiers have free will and the opportunity to not sign/re-sign up if they feel they are being asked to participate in an unjust war, so they also deserve a proportion of the blame if they choose to stay.
We also find it amusing how so many of those who claim to "protect our freedoms of speech" tell us to shut up, or be duffed up.
Soldiers are not heroes. They can be heroes, they can act heroically, they can do heroic things - but the act of putting on a uniform for the next so many years does not make your life more important than others, it does not make your opinions and insights more worthy of respect than others, it does not exempt you from moral judgement. It does not make you a hero. And we should not fall prey to hero-worship.Ē http://whoviating.blogspot.com/2008/06/heroics.html
We are peacefully protesting against the groups protesting (with needless threats) against our peaceful protests against the forces!
THIS GROUP ISNíT A SOLDIER HATRED GROUP, JUST A GROUP AGAINST THE HERO WORSHIP OF SOLDIERS. (read less)

These keyboard commandos would piss their britches in the face of any military personnel. At least I can take satisfaction in that:pGovernment is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

I don't know ANY soldiers, and I know MANY, who think they are heros. They do not pin this moniker on themselves, it is given to them either fairly or unfairly by well meaning persons who are trying to show support and gratitude.
This group of morons who post this crap does so because of underlying hatred for the military. Interesting to note is these idiots seem to suggest that the military members don't pay income tax.
Well morons, listen up. Military members take jobs in an Armed service at lower pay than a civilian counterpart job. They ALSO pay income taxes on their earnings. Many are at the poverty level. Less than 1% of the population is willing to do these necessay jobs. They put their life on the line for their fellow citizens at the direction of their Commander in Chief, Republican or Democrat, regardless whether YOU FEEL the worththeness of "conflict".
Not a single one of these soldiers, er, heroes, had ANY say in going to war. They were willing to answer the call in a time of war, something you turds were too scared to do or couldn't qualify for at any rate. This speaks to above average courage of these soldiers if not heroism.
As for Welfare, not even close. Unlike your favorite entitlements that ARE Welfare, the Armed Services are Constitutionally mandated obligations for the government as in; "Provide for the common defense." Without these individuals, you Nancy boys too scared to pick up a rifle would be bending over for your Mullahs right now 6 times a day. (5 mandatory and we all know what the additional 6 is for;)).

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
