If you had bothered to read +Hans J. Furfjord
's comment properly, you'd understand that he referred to Afghanistan as the good fight, and the only one since WW2. Which is why Obama always supported it. And when you accuse him of being ignorant of US history, why didn't you bother to specify which part? Is it because you didn't want to be confronted with your own ignorance? Is that also the reason you made your accusation and preemptively blocked Furfjord just in case he might actually want to reply? What kind of cowardly and arrogant behavior is that? That's how children behave.
As for this post, it should be about remembering the dead, as you say, regardless of how they died. But it's stupid, arrogant and inhumane to remember just a few of them because they happened to be born near you. But maybe that's just something you can't wrap your vicious, patriotic head around. It's almost like people like you live in a psychosis of admiration of war and soldiers. If said wars were against other countries for arbitrary and stupid reasons, who cares, it's their "sacrifice" that matters. Sacrifice for what? What better day of the year than this to talk about why the veterans had to die pointlessly and needlessly because of politicized patriotism. That's what the dead veterans would've wanted. That's what anyone would've wanted if their death was the result of deception and politics and not real dangers and real enemies.
