What's Your Take? The War on Iraq
Bush says that he is protecting the country but he is hurting [us] by sending our brothers, dads, uncles out to fight a war that has nothing to do with us. And that to me is just wrong. He should be the one out there fighting alongside them. But where is he? He is in a big house with men protecing him so he won't get his sorry A$$ shot.
My teacher's son was in the army and got his leg amputated 'cuz of it.
They always seem to make this whole deal out of people coming back from Iraq and going back to their lives perfectly happy. Well there are some very key parts that the army is not advertizing:
1) Soldiers are coming back mentally scarred.
2) Some can never have a normal life again because of physical damage.
3) Half of the people coming home are getting sent back with nothing more than a couple months to spend with their families.
yeah, but one benifit of the army is you get discounts off of taxes, and college and cheaper houses.
I know but i just saw this commercial when i got home about this guy that comes home from the war comeletely fine and then his dad buys him this car (it was a car comercial). I just couldn't understand how they could do that.
People don't come back from war like that. That's why there's "Gulf War Syndrome", and shell shock. People are not made to go out there and see people they know die, let people die, kill people. After an experience like war, people change – and it is absolutely not all physical. But of course the advertisment is propaganda.
War changes how a person is. My grandfather was in World War II and now when it rains he gets all scared and has flash backs from when he was in the war. That is why we have to watch out for him. We never know what he will do when he has one of these flash backs. It sometimes scares me to be with him. i wounder what Bush would do if it was up to us who to send to the war. If he was chosen, I wou=nder what he would do. Would he run and hide or would he be a man and go to war for us??
