    Do NOT read this if you hate crying. It's a tough read.



    Before departing for a tour in Afghanistan, First Lieutenant Todd Weaver left a note to his 9 month year old daughter. Todd Weaver was killed on September 9, 2010 by an improvised explosive device. The letter to his daughter reads:

    That is heart wrenching but it was cool he left the note for his daughter. I'm sure it will mean a lot to her when she gets older

    Not that simple brother. I wish it was. A lot of those people want freedom (the men are hypocritical with the way they treat their broads but let's face it, if you could get away with treating your woman like it was a century ago..."no lip, no whoring around...you act right, please me and shut the fuck up"...you wouldn't mind :jj:) of free enterprise. To run their businesses, prosper and provide for their families peacefully.

    The assholes do not represent the whole. I used to believe all of that "extremists hijacked the religion" stuff was bullshit too but I have too many Muslim friends to ignore the humanity and inherent goodness I've experienced. These uprisings are good. The turmoil and casualties suffered at the moment are tragic but revolution is necessary. These despots need to be driven out...a balance of wealth and accountability established. Only then will the humanity of the non-militant Muslims be evident to the rest of the world.
