....And these are the stories that need to get more press here in the states....I could give two shits about who the kar-trashians are fucking are what country angelina jolie is going to bring her next baby home from. That's one brave man that I would take next to my side any day

But most people don't feel comfortable hating on soldiers. We do, however, like hating on celebrities. The media nowadays exists primarily to fuel and profit from our most cynical thoughts, and that business model has little use for heroes.

Yeah you're right, we love controversy and negativity in our news over here. Pretty much why I gave up watching news on tv and just read it online now

"Kyle is a shining example of what our nation need to encourage," Carpenter said.

I think that was misquoted.

Such a brave and humble guy. It's crazy that the other guy seemed to get more damage. He looks pretty good considering. I saw a before and after of a marine before that was just devastating.

Sounds more like a failed suicide attempt to me.
