I don't know how "I was in the war" fact matter for me to agree with your opinion.
I'm sick and tired of US troops considered as saints, when in fact they did some horrible shit.. I remember one soldier who kicked me on my chest really hard with his boot (I was 9 at the time) I remember his boot was as tall as me.. It happened inside my home, he was wearing black glasses, I fucking hated this guy I think he's the first person in my life that I hated this much.. He began to shout loudly at me even though I couldn't understand what he was saying,, and then he kicked me really hard I couldn't move for two days. Thank god one of his friends talked to him and they got out of the house.
There are so many many terrifying things I remember they did to other people, one guy hit some kid in the face with the back of his gun because he said "fuck you" even though he obviously didn't know what it meant.
