Lovely anti-intellectualism. Screw the philosopher, hail the soldier.
You ever read Hamlet? Probably not but if you actually have you might have realized that there are two guys left in the ending, the soldier AND the intellectual.
About your jingoist remarks concerning the great USA having protected ungrateful Euroscum from the grips of Stalin, no American soldier died in the process. Nuclear weapon did the job. You really gotta use that thing inside of your skull more instead of ranting about "keyboard philosophers".
Talking about anti-intellectualism, only pathetic creatures who have not achieved anything in their life and nothing to be proud of feel pride concerning the achievements of others, the anonymous social as such, the nation or however you wanna call it.
I admire and abhor many people but pride and shame are personal feelings.
