Medal of Dishonour: US veterans dump awards outraged by endless wars
The U.S. military has admitted that major mistakes were made during its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, in a report that showed flaws in training and policy. It also highlighted a lack of understanding over the realities faced by troops. Now, it seems the country's war veterans are joining an increasingly-angry public, over what they see as America's constant cycle of war. With some even ditching their honours of valour - as Anastasia Churkina explains.
1. I commend Raymond Knaeble and the rest of the war vet's. for taking a stand against Bush/Cheney
criminal war for profit, continued by the Obama administration. Many of these men and women return home after their service, physically and psychologically damaged, only to be discarded and forgotten as useless cannon fodder.
I was saddened to see a young Scott Olsen speaking about the war he served in, only to returned home where he sustained serious injuries by our own Oakland Police Department during a OWS peaceful protest.
If Romney should ever make it to the White House, he wouldn't hesitate to send thousands more to Syria.
(Four) deferment Romney or his family members, have never served in the military, so it would be easy for him to send others to be injured and killed. He has never had to endure the aftermath these vets face, no empathy, out of touch Romney.
He is a hypocrite, CHICKEN HAWK extraordinaire.
