I'm gonna get BLASTED for this one... it's ok...I'll take the heat cause I come from a Military Family.
Why is this even an issue? Because we believe we have rights. Why does the US get bashed Worldwide? Because we believe we are better than everybody else (arrogance) and lastly - why do our Soldiers - Men *and* Women - catch beatdowns in other Countries?
Simple. We still believe in the Honour System.
Anybody remember Vietnam? I'm not old enough - but - I'm old enough to remember the effects it had on our Soldiers (including those in my Family). Let's Fast Forward to today.
It's 2011, and other Countries who believe stronger than we do, (they) will use Guerrilla tactics - including Bombs on their *own* children. Good Parent, Bad Parent doesn't matter - You honestly think that someone wouldn't walk up to a child and give them *something* and watch the aftermath without smiling and looking for the next target?
I say it like this - I have the Right to Protect My Family - this also includes me watching this pat-down to ensure my Kids are not having more than their Rights Violated.
...but then - I'm always "that other guy"
