Do you know how much courage it takes to join the military after the events of September 11, 2001 have affected you and your patriotic feelings to HELP any way you can the country you love, then ship out to Iraq, work your way to the rank of Sergeant, find out that both yourself and your comrades in arms come to learn that this war you are fighting with your life on the line to be nothing more than contrived BullShit, then come home (thankfully not in a coffin that Americans can’t see on TV) and then be told you have to go back?
I sure as hell don’t! I have absolutely NO Friggin’ Idea what that would be like.
Do you have any idea how much courage it takes to learn the truth about why you went to war and to then face prison because you simply CANNOT continue to support, let alone be a part of the war-of-lies that you were brave enough to prosecute before you learned of the lies?
That takes some serious conviction. It takes a special person. One who is not only willing to get up and take a stand, but one who is willing to put their ass on the line in order to do so.
Please find time to watch the attached video (9+ minutes) and understand what it takes.
I salute you, Matthis Chiroux. If Honor is based in doing what is right and what you believe in, Matthis Chiroux is the most Honorable of US Citizens today.
