FYL, #49/50, for being disrespectful to a veteran of any nation. OP, thank you for serving your country. :) I'm sorry that an ignorant/senile/rude old woman did something like that to you. You should be proud of what you have done, and I hope this experience doesn't mar it for you.

Do any of you even know what the Taleban do? Every year hundreds of woman cover themselves in petrol and set alight to it, trying to kill themselves, as it is the only way to escape from the arrange marriages forced on them by the people we are fighting against. This may not be the entire reason we started the war, but it is definitely why we should continue it. Every soldier who dies valiantly in combat will save the lives of thousands of men, woman and children who choose not to follow ever

You speak for humanity? Then speak out and denounce evils that are done, not specifically insulting the people who go to stop it. I am not naive, I am sure that cruelties have been committed by soldiers on all sides- American, Canadian, British, Australian, Taliban alike, and the others who flock to the banner of ANY war. What gives you the right to speak out and denounce one side before any others and claim you are speaking for humanity? Our soldiers are fighting a greater evil. They are fig

more justifiable than the falklands war, you are joking arent you??? the falklands war was fought by the british to protect a british land, with british people living there, who didnt want to be argentinian, but british, and the afghan war is being fought to prevent terrorism and to protect western nations against extremist faggots, and to make life better for the locals in afghanistan, but the falklands war was much more important than the war in afghanistan will ever be, for a start the taliba

The OP isn't saying that we should all respect him for being an Afghan war veteran. But it's standard practice to wear your medals at a military service of any kind and he's saying f his life because the old woman started yelling at him and calling him a liar during

Actually....In Canada, our forces in Afghanistan are made up of militia, to the tune of 20 to 30% in each and every Roto. These part time soldiers do everything from being in infantry sections, quick reaction force, provincial reconstruction teams, to police mentoring. Not only are they all volunteers to wear a uniform, but each and every one of them has volunteered for Afghanistan. Militia cannot be ordered to war, they must volunteer. They do not have to go, but they do, in droves. Im not sur

(Directed at #56) I'm confused as to how you're relating the Taliban to marital affairs in other nations. And are you referring to the ancient practice in which women by choice set themselves alight on their husband's funeral pyre? Because I hardly see why we should wage a war over cultural differences. Although I would believe you if you were referring to a small number who are forced to do this, it's not some pandemic. that being said, thank you for the service you've done for America. Altho

#56, I'm sorry but what do you mean by: "---who choose not to follow every single word in the K'oran." ? English is not my native language, so if I've misinterpreted your post, please correct me. I've read the K'oran and I assure you, with all due respect, it does not tell anyone to go and harm others. I'm 15 years old, so I don't exactly know a lot about politics, but anyone who says that Islam and the K'oran or any other religion speaks of spreading destruction, harm and horror are

56, why are you assuming everyone in Afghan are Muslim? Also, war makes no goddamn sense anyways. We go to war under the impression that it's helping people and saving lives. Isn't that ironic? War is caused by the mindset that "what we think is correct, and if you don't think what we do, you're wrong." Maybe they have different beliefs, but it doesn't make them WRONG or EVIL.

How very disrespectful of her. Even if she thought you were lying she had no right to accuse you in front of everyone. And at a service? even if you were lying that is not the place to make a scene. shes just as bad as what she was accusing you of doing, upsetting everyone who is trying to pay theri respects at the service

The OP is obviously young so the old woman probably assumed the medals belonged to one of his elders, most likely grandfather. I doubt the OP would refer to his grandmother as "an old widow".
