Comments: An apology, explaination, and news

Sorry about getting overly angry, I'm just tired of people blurring the line between Bush and the Army, inadvertantly(or advertantly) insulting people who die to protect them. I also apologize for getting to angry. I am passionate about his country, but realize it could be better. What I meant by my comment was that yuo live ina priveleged country, one with stability, if you lived in Iran or Sudan yuo(or most anyone else) would be screwed. I realized it was sarcasim and maybe I crossed lines to, and for that I apologize. I am glad to know you meant know harm to the army, and again I apologize for any offensive comments I may have made. And I agree that Bush was wrong in about every way he could be, but the men on the frontlines did nothing wrong. I was frustrated that you seem to be perpetuating a common misconception: Because you are liberal you hate your country, and that is a lie. And I agree that advertising to you is wrong, and that it is pretty low. And you have every right to joke about the motivational statements, I think they are pretty weak too, and even the army brass, but I just have a strong dislike of people who don't know what it's like to be there(I',m not, but I don't insult the soldiers), they simply laugh at them. Noone appears to have any notion of what they are talking about, some people insult the army, others want to join because "Tanks are awesome!!!!" Grow up. The reason we need more men is that everyone expects someone else to protect them. Sorry again, your're a good person, but the combination of that statement about "America" and Outback Steakhouse(Australia should not be allowed to make music anymore) radio commercials had me pretty pissed. Didn't mean to disturb you, but I just got out of control. Nice blog by the way.
