Americans have been destroying the future of America for quite a while now.

In 1965, Vietnam seemed like
Just another foreign war
But it wasn't, it was
Different in many ways

As so were those
Who did the fighting
In World War II
The average age of the
Combat soldier was twenty-six

In Vietnam, he was nineteen

In Vietnam, the combat soldier
Typically served a twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average age was nineteen

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered
From what psychiatrists call
Post traumatic stress disorder
Many vets complain of alienation, rage, or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight-hundred-thousand men
Are still fighting the Vietnam War

None of them received
A hero's welcome

Kids getting shot up in school is just an extension of what we have been doing for decades ;)

Side: True.

What gets me everyday is how shocked people are when I tell them that I love to study Hitler. I mean I know he was shocking- but our leaders go kill people in the Middle East and Asia just because they believe in a different way of living. Not because they attacked us - because we think they are different???

And Hitler wAs a soldier. None of our recent leaders saw combat!!

They send our kids to die !

And no flags go up anymore?!

I wish there was a way that I could just blank you out so I'd never have to see another one of your moronic posts.

America is modern day Sparta. 300 of our combat trained school students (like the ones in Parkland) can take on 20,000 French school students ;)

Side: True.

If you're really as stupid as you come across, how do you manage to exist?

You are correct. Sparta took on the Persians, not the Parisians. I should have said 20,000 Iranian students ;)

Side: True.

If you can’t be trusted to purchase a beer, then how could you be able to be trusted with 10 assault rifles.

This is very simple, register all semiauto assault receivers, minimum age requirements of 21, maybe even requirements of a co-signer until 26.

In our defense, we now use drones to save American lives. Maybe school children can send drones to school to learn ;)

I like the song.

The problem you have with your "heroes welcome" theory is that they weren't heroes. In WW2 they were heroes. In Vietnam they were the weapon of a series of presidents who were deceiving the country about the need for involvement. Vietnam wanted a peaceful transition to Communism after many years of French colonial rule, and instead they got many more years of American colonial rule.

You can argue that they were just doing a job etc... And that is all fine and dandy, but on that occasion they picked the wrong job if popularity was their career aim. Since then America has become a textbook military culture, with pressure being put on everybody to worship "the troops" regardless of what they actually do, or who they do it on behalf of.
