1. Actually, I don't understand how Bush is responsible for this.
It seems reasonable to believe that if not for Bush, he would have been in the car too.

and maybe if he was driving they all would have been killed???? Stuff like this happens and it's tragic, but (GOD, I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SAYING THIS) this is one time dumbass W isn't directly responsible for a soldiers death.


It is tragic, but you're reaching.

19. well, duh.. I know that
I was referring your comment here: "perhaps if he had been driving there would have been no crash"

You still can't blame it on W directly.

and that fucking rolling eye icon is so lame when you are the one not making sense.

27. That's a very good question

34. it is really sad
you folks don't focus on the sadness of the man's loss instead of my comments. Which were not intended as the topic. Sad, sad sad.

37. So make your comments pertain to his loss instead of your hatred.
Simple, simple, simple.

28. Didn't He Sign Up, Know The Risks?
Probably even voted for W

I'm sorry for his loss, but even W isn't responsible for the car wreck.

13. Isn't this the family that was returning from the grandmother's funeral?
Seems they would have been driving that route anyway. The timing might have been different, thus avoiding the accident ... but those types of things are only "what if" questions.

My heart goes out to him just the same. :cry:

36. You are being silly and insensitive about a tragedy.
You care more about attacking * than the tragic deaths.

Look at yourself, what you are doing is pathetic.

16. Your reasoning doesn't follow.
Do you have any idea how this families schedule would have changed if Daddy had been back in the picture?
To say nothing of the butterfly effect.

6. Well, guess who probably won't get a humanitarian reassignment
Hey, the whole family is dead, so per the regulations, there's nothing holding him back.

Back to the front, son, to serve our noble cause!!!

17. Actually, the more I think about it, there is a silver lining in this.
He'll probably get sent home.
