it pisses me off every time i hear someone say that some sports player or movie star is a hero. cause 99% of them are pussy and when you have bullets wissing by you. but, in the cause of pat tillman he was a real true american hero. i just wish there are more like him. i am in the service and yes we have our fair share of pussies, but off the most part i say 90% of our military are all pat tillmans and i am pround to say i serve this might nation.
some general say something allong the lines of "people say they are worry about the youth of our nation, but the things i see our youth do everyday in the United State miliarty, i am not worry at all" i could go on all day about this but i won't. good vid.

RIght on. I agree with you, and like you said, we can go on all day about this. As a person, I hope that I can live up to the same standards that Pat and others like him have set. Thanks for the vid.

I want to know how in the hell is he a hero??? He death was sad and a tragedy, but he was killed by FRIENDLY fire, meaning that his own people were shooting in his direction and he was mistakenly killed.
So...what do you figure it takes to be a hero? Like it would have made a difference if the bullet came from the Taliban instead of one our guys? In my mind he is a hero because of his achievements, his courage, his sacrifices, and his willingness to put his life on the line to save others and to honor our country.

The internet (GDC specifically) is incredible...
In a matter of ten posts, what was a nice tribute to one person's life and death turned into a heated debate on the significance of a war. If that is going to be the case, then it seems to me that this conversation needs to be taken outside (Politics Forum). Why is it that people have to get on here and start dogging someone or something when that was not even the point of the original post?

Since this seems to be the theme of GDC:


Lets at least argue over something important, like...
Who's hotter, Jessica Simpson or Angelina Jolie?

I read each one of those articles. The writers refered to him as an "idiot" and "sucker" and "wasted life". And "he got what was coming to him." BULLSHIT. Still a hero.

No argument, you're exactly right, this is a "Forum"... I'm just saying it's not the right "Forum" to be posting up crap like that. You're welcome to your opinion and I'm glad you have one and I'm glad that you're able and willing to voice it, this is America afterall. But THIS is Pics and Vids, and the point of this post was not to get people riled up about a War. I'm not taking offense to what you said, I was just trying to use humor in my previous post in order to get this thread back the original topic. If I was looking for a discussion on the war I would not have clicked on Pics and Vids, that's all.

I'm done

No, I don't think John Lennon would have though he was a hero. WTF?
Anyway, I agree with the others. This is a Pics and Vid section. Enough.

I don't see him as a hero, I saw him as someone that wanted to try and help. Hell there are still men/women that are losing their life in this useless rage of war, and are they getting the kind of attention that this cat is if they make that ultimate sacrifice? HELL FUCKING NO. Just because he was a professiona athlete before, doesn't make him any better than the 18 year old kid just out of HS that enlists also. There were a few of our troops that lost their life about a week ago, I want to see what kind of press coverage they give them on their homecoming and how many CNN cameras will be at their funeral, and how many articles will be written about them
I have been there done that. Did it for 10 years and I am glad that I did, but so much happier now that I have my freedom back and not blinded by the way the government covers shit up.
