19. as if soldiers have done anything to protect my freedom ever
seriously i was born in 1979. Americans soldiers have never done a single thing to protect my freedom. They have done much to endanger it by killing innocent people in Grenada, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, but never once done a damn thing to protect my freedom.

they are fighting for empire, not freedom, it is so obvious.
how can people even justify that soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan are fighting for our freedom? they are fighting for oil, heroin, and hash.
