The two sides in every war are manipulated and played off against each other, whilst the bankers supporting BOTH sides of the war, sit, observe and rake in the cash. There is nothing to support. We should be supporting our troops by telling them to drop their weapons and return home to their families, this kind of propaganda makes me feel sick to my stomach.

As for the actual fight, I hope Kennedy loses, I've just never liked the guy.
Can I book you for my kid's birthday party?



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

If it means your son won't be brainwashed into joining the army and "serving his country with honour", which could result in him murdering strangers on the other side of the world, being murdered himself, losing limbs, or returning home haunted by the devastation of war (mass murder), all to fatten the pockets of a few corrupted bankers, then yes. I'd be doing him and you a favour.



Your stance on animal rights today is a reflection of your stance regarding slavery in the past.

I like the matchup. Kennedy will be the favorite but Natal should have some tools that could find him a win in Tim's game. Natal hasn't looked terrible this year, he will be going for his forth win of 2013, but Kennedy is a definite step up in comp over his last three opponents.

Also, keep whatever BS political rhetoric you have in a section where people actually want to discuss them please, as in not MMA discussions. Not the place at all.

I like MMA less because of this forum

"Support the troops" means you support the men and women in uniform, not that you support their exploitation, or war in general.

This thread was probably not the most appropriate place for your mini-rant.

"War" Kennedy; he wins via decision.

I don't necessarily see what's wrong with posting about the military in a thread about a fight for the troops card.

What about all of the other threads on forums about fighters personal lives and the morality of their decisions? Such as Jon Jones crashing into a lamppost and people debating how much of an asshole he is? That has nothing to do with actual MMA discussion, but plenty of people want to talk about it.

If the mods/admins declare that it is irrelevant to talk about such issues in a "fight for the troops" thread, then that's fair enough.

@Heelhook. How can you support people whilst blindly ignoring the acts of violence they are committing? That's the same as blindly supporting a "president" in uniform for helping to run a country, even though all he/she is doing is destroying the country.

Never blindly support any thing. I support the troops putting down their weapons and returning home to their loving families. I'm not going to blindly support their murder in foreign countries because of a badge and uniform, and neither should any one else.
