Chris Kyle, the former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper who was responsible for 160 kills during his career as U.S. Navy SEAL sniper, was shot and killed with another man at a gun range on Saturday, the co-author of Kyle's book said. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/03/us-usa-crime-sniper-idUSBRE91202K20130203

He was a piece of shit responsible for at least 160 murders. I find it funny and ironic he died by the gun. Especially after he advocated arming teachers in the wake of newton. POS rot in hell.

Ron Paul's puzzling critique of murdered SEAL Chris Kyle

By Peter Weber | The Week – 11 hrs ago.. .

http://news.yahoo.com/ron-pauls-puzzling-critique-murdered-seal-chris-kyle-072000026.html

In 140 characters, the newly retired congressman reminds us why he — and maybe his son — won't top the GOP presidential ticket

When news started spreading that Chris Kyle, a former SEAL and author of the best-selling autobiography American Sniper, was shot dead with a friend over the weekend — allegedly at the hands of a PTSD-suffering former Marine he was trying to help by taking him shooting at a hunting range — conservatives were incensed over the callous tweets of "some on the anti-gun Left." And then this happened:

Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense

— Ron Paul (@RonPaul) February 4, 2013 And just like that, the three-time Republican presidential candidate's tenuous coalition of pro-gun libertarians, anti–Federal Reserve goldbugs, and foreign policy non-interventionists crumbled. Paul is an opponent of gun control — saying after December's Newtown, Conn., grade school massacre that "more guns equals less crime" and that "private gun ownership prevents many shootings" — but also of U.S. military adventurism. Kyle, also an outspoken gun-rights advocate, earned a reputation in Iraq as one of the deadliest snipers in U.S. military history. With Twitter erupting in outrage over his comment, Paul took to Facebook to explain himself:

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle's family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP

That not-quite-apology didn't quell the anger or the virtual yelling. "You really are vile," tweeted GOP strategist Rick Wilson; Commentary's John Podhoretz said Paul's tweet was "appalling." The newly liberated Paul "is more callous than ever, with an extra helping of sanctimony and a healthy dollop of anti-military sentiment," say the editors of Michelle Malkin's Twitchy. Not content with just "dancing on the grave of a military hero," Paul poured fuel on the fire by invoking Jesus to justify his "ghoulish" views. Even Paul's son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — rumored to have presidential ambitions himself — rushed out a statement to Breitbart.com: "Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country. Our prayers are with his family during this tragic time."

Et tu, Rand? says Ryan W. McMaken at Lew Rockwell's LRC Blog. Yes, "every American soldier is a hero, just like the Bronze-Star-winning Timothy McVeigh and the Marine Lee Harvey Oswald." But Rand isn't the only "sycophantic" conservative throwing Ron Paul under the bus for "truth-telling about the tragic outcomes that are sure to come from time spent in a military where rape, suicide, domestic abuse and general killing are widespread."

Who can be surprised that conservatives... have been falling all over themselves to condemn Ron Paul for quoting Jesus — in correct context, by the way — to note that the violence wrought by over a decade of nonstop war in America leads to tragedy on the home front?... The most transparent were the conservatives who claimed to be former supporters of Paul who must now go support some more "patriotic" politician: One who doesn't actually question anything the military does.... This is what it comes down to for most conservatives, of course. All that stuff about laissez faire and freedom and free markets has never been more than an act and an affectation.... Among conservatives, Ron Paul has only ever had minority support, for in the end, conservatives love government, as exhibited by their latest outrage. They just love it in a slightly different way from the left liberals. [Lew Rockwell]

Well, for better of for worse, this is the genuine Ron Paul, says BuzzFeed's Rosie Gray. Paul has started sending off his own tweets "since he left office," according to a spokeswoman, so "get used to off-the-cuff Twitter activity from the former presidential candidate." Paul's "remarkably offensive 140 character eulogy" is certainly a good reminder why politicians are "protected from scrutiny by both aides trained in press relations and friendly journalistic outlets," says Noah Rothman at Mediaite.

Paul has long opposed American military action... but the former veteran has begun to conflate the missions that he opposes with the men and women who carry those missions out. The sentiment Paul broadcast in this tweet betrays a contempt for Kyle that is, at best, ill-timed.... Paul would be smart to apologize for this insensitive remark, but his political opponents should be thankful for the clarity this unguarded moment has provided the general public. Though the 2012 campaign is long over, Paul's most stalwart supporters continue to insist that the Texas libertarian is the only politician who has the best interests of the troops at heart. This tweet would suggest otherwise. [Mediaite]

Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Here's another quote of Jesus showing his policy of non-violence.

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn " 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law--a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.' "Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me."

Matthew 10:34-38

And here are some examples of that policy of non-violence.

The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.

When evening came, they went out of the city.

In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"

Mark 11:12-14, 11:19-21

On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.

Mark 11:15-16

When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

John 2:13-15

What an interesting character for a libertarian to quote. The Court of the Gentiles is where both legally and socially sanctioned bussiness had been conducted since the gentiles could go no further into the Temple and the Temple had in part served as a Jewish national bank. Jesus had engaged in violent activity that had clearly interfered with the conduction of legitimate bussiness. Interference that libertarians are supposed to be against.

Of course, in reality, one man couldn't have driven out a bunch of businesses all by himself. In reality, one man would have needed a group of men to have pulled it off. And in reality, the Roman garrison that had been stationed at the Temple and been on high alert during any Jewish festival would have put down the disturbance and had the men crucified for insurrection.

Live by the sword, die by the sword.

How can you call the guy a piece of shit without really knowing anything about him? when you made a statement like that, did you ever take into account that he specialized in taking out enemy snipers who killed US troops? Or the countless lives he saved killing those who wished to kill our troops and Iraqi civilians because they did not cooperate? How about the incalculable sacrifice he made by going through 4 tours of the worst that Iraq has to offer all the while he had a loving wife and family waiting at home? He gave the all the money he made from his book to charities for wounded soldiers and dedicated his life to PTSD awareness. The truth of the matter is that CHRIS KYLE accomplished and helped more people with his left pinky than you would in a dozen lifetimes. You don't have to agree with the war, I surely never have but you have to give the utmost respect to a man who has risked his life time and time again for his fellow soldiers and Iraqi civilians. Frankly, if i had an opportunity to actually meet the writer of this post I'd make sure he fully "understood" what this man bled, suffered and sacrificed for. So continue living your life as an internet pussy, Ill make sure that my children and everyone I know are made aware of the great sacrifices of such men.

[-] 1 points by EmergencyAlert (51) 1 year ago

Good post. The guy who is attacking the soldier may himself be suffering from PTSD of some sort connected with war or military personnel, as he is not responding rationally, as if emotionally triggered. So let's let it rest. We don't want to trigger another episode. Taking a PTSD patient to a shooting range is probably not the best thing to do. Shooting a gun with blanks in the backyard would suffice, if even that.

I wouldn't get excited about what is posted - if they think that way about him I wonder what they thinkg about our WW II and Vietnam Vets? Their answer will tell exactly what they are all about.

As you well know most who post on this site live in the big cities where there are mass murders. They know nothing about anything outside the city limits.

Hell there were people coming up from NYC to go deer hunting years ago and they shot several cows because they though they were deer.

What does that tell you about "city dwellers?

I don't have an argument. He became a contractor which is part enlister for the military, part recruiter for the corpaortion,

He stood for violence and war & he died for war, his buddies don't have shit to say, ... but deeper ...He was a man, was an US man, was an US voter, was man with borther or sister - father or mother, ... so yeah, he is gonna have family that speak up. Your kid dies in Basic training in the US miliary... okay that is careless death & a lawsuit.

rkhlgatian, is talking about Leadership. You and me we don't have to consider or recognize Leadership. Leadership exists in an other world. War exists in another world.

PTSD does exist in tihis world.

Our veterans are humans, are warriors, and they exist in this world. No judgment. We can't judge the Veterans. They can't pre-Judge us. You and Me might be active in helping and understanding veterans and what happens to veterans ... and we might be trying to reach out to verterans ... but it is tough. Veterans might not want to listen to us. Veterans might feel Judged, boxed in, controlled, monitored, and feel cutoff, feel denigrated, feel abused, and feel like they are totally under the microscope.

Our veterans don't really deserve to be abused, or constantly examined. No one does. Today the veterans are the subject of multiple surveys, tests, examinations, studies ... no one wants to be subject to all that with no financial compensation that pays for housing. Our Veterans deserve some basic program to give them living space and to have their post war treatement provided in a quiet and opaque kind of way. There is no reason to beat down our veterans.

I guess I was taking a "Humanist" view and applying it to Veterans and the people that join the military system when they are young. That seems fair. I have this idea that some people in the extreme left or the extreme right would take the right to vote away from those on the other side. Understand they both talk about democracy. But it is not democracy to dehumanize and take rights away from people on the other side....

I like that old song Bill Murray was singing in "lost in Translation" ... what's wrong with peace.., love and un..derstanding? I don't know the name of the song. Sounds like Humanism.

[-] 1 points by EmergencyAlert (51) 1 year ago

Sounds like you are really hurt by the fact that the soldier killed so many people. It is a nice sentiment to not want people to be killed. I don't think any soldier wants to have to kill an enemy. But sometimes it is unavoidable. He must have personally lamented for having to go there and do all that. No one could come out of that experience without some remorse and regret. I think his donating his book sales demonstrates that this is likely the case. I also felt a lot of anger towards W Bush. All Americans (over 70%) and most of the world did too. he had the lowest approval ratings of any president. I think you are misdirecting your anger at the soldier, but it is understandable how you feel about these wars. They are not justified at all. Yet these soldiers didn't knowingly join the military on the basis of these false pretexts to fight senseless wars. If we want to stop this repeating cycle, then we have to clean up US intel that is generating the false intelligence. That is the cause. That is where we need to direct our attention.

To visitors, quantumystic speaks only for himself. He's actually an anti-OWS shill. Divide and conquer is his game. Obviously most soldiers/Marines sign up as true believers, trusting the call and seeking to serve their country -- but, sadly, frequently mislead by Pentagon/political leaders' lies. But the motives of the vast majority are beyond question.

Aside from the facts above, OWS needs to form alliances with vets and vet organizations to accomplish the reinstatement of constitutional law in the U.S. Preventing this is quantum's main motive, as far as I can tell.

[-] 1 points by EmergencyAlert (51) 1 year ago

He was not responsible. He was working under orders. The commander in chief was responsible for that war. I am not sure the war morally or legally justified, but the troops really have no ability to make judgement calls. They are ordered to kill the enemy according to the rules of warfare. If he committed war crimes that is another thing. Then you have to prove that. It appears he was not accused or tried of war crimes. So where is the basis for criticism? War means killing enemies. It is no party.

[-] 2 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 1 year ago

What you say is a rational response. But I have to say does not a time come where the whole Idea of these wars become so reprehensible to the senses that differentiating the warrior from the war is no longer possible For instance, I never heard someone say I detest stripping, but I support strippers.

Also, before I get pigeonholed as unAmerican, I invoke Vietnam, and say the sentiment looks very American to me.

[-] 1 points by EmergencyAlert (51) 1 year ago

Well it is bandwagon liberalism, as bad as, band wagon conservatism. I am a centrist so I get to criticize all the extremists. lol It's a great job. Someone has to do it. We are the only truly rational people. I say that in all humility. Okay we try to be.

But seriously, being a soldier is a noble occupation. It is not to be equated with strip dancing. That is a misunderstanding of its nature. It is not immoral, but one can make it immoral by committing war crimes like killing an enemy prisoner. That is murder.

Frankly, Americans HATE Nazis. It goes so against our instincts. Americans love underdogs. We cry when we see special olympics guys win gold medals. Nazis just want to kill them. They killed 100s of 1000s of handicaps. Euthanasia. They killed 30 million people or more. So when we see our government cutting a Nazi profile, it shakes us to the core. Wanton senseless killing like in Iraq. 100s of 1000s killed. 90% civilian casualties.

We were on the verge of a government overthrow in the 60s due to this crap. The plain truth is that there are real Nazi elements manipulating US intel.. So yeah it is hard to separate, but we really have to up to a point, which is when those Nazis gain control to the point they are able to unleash repressive and/or genocidal military power on the people of the United States through our own military.

That is where the line gets drawn and each soldier has to make the ultimate decision of who he is fighting to protect. If he attacks American citizens unjustly, then he has to face the power of the people. Bush suspended posse comatatos opening the doors for this. The Patriot Act has pushed us closer to the edge of realizing this. There is an agenda for this at some level, which is a genuine Nazi agenda.

For God's sake, read what the Nazi's actually did and how they did it. Then understand what happened to the top Nazi leaders after WWII. Thousands infiltrated and took over US institutions with the help of the CIA. They were given fake IDs, citizenship, jobs at the expense of Americans, and charge of NASA (150+) and other top posts in intelligence (100+ joined CIA as spies), military and the defense industry.

Hitler's brain, the cream of his crop, merged with the USA. These were SS officers, gestapo, all war criminals who escaped trial. They regrouped and were plotting the Fourth Reich. Their plan was to control the world by controlling Space, and we gave them full facility to do that through NASA. The first director of NASA and the top 150 guys who ran NASA were all Hitler's men. Nazi war criminals. How insane is that?

Read about Operation Paperclip and Operation Galdio and Odessa and open your eyes. America is famous for supporting right wing dictator puppet regimes after WWII. Why? Who was doing that? Hitler's top 100 spies who were working in the CIA after WWII. That's who. Everyone including Americans hates our government for that. Why? Because it is a sick Nazi way to do foreign policy. It was like that, because our intel is full of Nazis. Just figure it out.

Project Paperclip has been partially declassified, so you can do the math. What happens if you take 100 of Hitler's most devious and cunning spies from the SS/Gestapo and integrated them in the CIA? What would you predict? Good intelligence reports? Or smuggling heroin into the US on CIA planes? Is everyone here wasted on drugs, or have you never study the history of WWII? These scum bag Nazis killed only 30 million people because we didn't give them more time. They would have killed billions. And those are the same bastards we integrate into the most sensitive part of our govt, our intelligence. Just go out and implant tape worms in your brain and see what happens.

Rep. Ellison on Obama’s Minnesota gun control speech: Appealing to the people is the right strategy

February 4, 2013

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who attended Obama’s campaign-style event on gun control in Minneapolis, shares his thoughts on the president’s strategy with Current TV’s John Fugelsang.

By “jumping over the head of the Washington lobbyists [NRA] and going straight to the American people, the American people … will put pressure on their members of Congress to move forward on sensible, sane gun violence prevention,” Ellison says. Ellison also weighs in on whether progressives would support less comprehensive gun control measures, like expanded — as opposed to universal — background checks.

“It wouldn’t be enough for us to move on, but it would be enough for us to say that we’ve made some progress,” he says.

Ask the Russians fighting on the Eastern Front, from Leningrad to the Crimea, from Kiev to Stalingrad, the Soviet Union was devastated - at least 25 million Soviet citizens died. But they defeated the Nazi’s. My answer is more accurate than yours.

[-] 1 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

You said that a soldier is immune because they are "just doing thier job".

That is the Nuremberg defense. One that was flatly rejected.

Soldiers are just as guilty as the people they take orders from are.

[-] 1 points by Narley (-634) 1 year ago

OK, I concede, war atrocities committed by soldiers should be prosecuted. Doesn’t change the fact that soldiers fighting a war are just doing their job and should not be condemned for it.

[-] 1 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

That is called the "Nuremberg defense". Soldiers, if faced with a moral dilemma(in this case "murder or not to murder") have the duty to make the moral decision no matter what their boss or job tells them to do.

Soldiers who participate in the crime of war are just as guilty as those who started the war.

Well he's only doing what he was "ordered" to do just as our WW II vets did when they were fighting the enemy.

Failure is only an option while you keep trying and eventually become successful. You see there are many millionaires out there who have failed time and time again but kept trying and eventually succeded at becoming successful - that's how it works.

However there are a lot of people who don't understand that concept - for they want to be successful and wealthy now - without having to work for it.

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Again you relate success to only monetary terms...

I do agree with your second paragraph, that people have forgotten the amount of hard work it takes to become financially successful. That being said, when productivity is up, and wages are down, they have a legitimate gripe to an extent.

[-] -1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

But these soldiers did not sign up for BS, they genuinely signed up to sincerely serve their country (and you).

We can fill our Pentagon with agressive officers ...and recruit kids good with video games to fly drones and take out military objectives. The technology has been around long enough they could have done it to take out the Twin Towers through auto pilot devices. not saying they did, but...

You are not a murderer. Killing in war is not murder. You have the right perspective. The Vietnam War was fought on false pretexts and we should not be proud of it. But that is not a soldiers responsibility. The CIA gave false intel that brought the US military there to fight the CIA's opium war for the golden triangle. It was a drug turf war. The CIA was producing heroin in Laos and selling it to troops in Vietnam. 30% of the soldiers became heroin addicts. There were more heroin addicts serving in Vietnam than in the entire USA. The soldiers were exploited. The law was exploited. Congress and the people of the USA and Vietnam were exploited all for the greed of drug smugglers embedded in the CIA. That problem is still with us and the same story repeats in Afghanistan. The CIA linked AlQaida to 9/11 to drag the US military in there to spank Taliban who was encroaching on CIA heroin production in Afghanistan. Osama is in North Warizistan and the US military is in Helmund Dist where 97% of the world's opium production is. Figure that out. They flew all the way over there to hang out with poppies or to engage the enemy hiding in North Warizistan? They should have landed in Pakistan. They didn't because that wasn't their real target. The real target is the opium for making heroin in Turkey to export to the USA on CIA planes that can enter without customs or military scrutiny in the USA by the ton daily. That is WTF is going on in this town. When are people going to wake up and turn on their brains to this? Is everyone in America a drug addict now and therefore comfortably too numb to give a F?
