NBC foreign correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin calls Chris Kyle a "racist" and claims that the MILITARY MISSIONS were "killing sprees." Now I'm sorry (NO I'm NOT), but the only real way to win a war is to kill the bad guys (that would be them, Mr. Mohyeldin) and protect the good guys (and that would be US).
If you were open minded (or intelligent) Mr. Mohyeldin, you would realize that if the bad guys (that would be them) are from 'local' nations, then a warrior will be killing people from that area. That's not racism! That's reality!
Also Mr. Mohyeldin, Who are these "A lot of people say" & "some people say", that you mention? BTW the little anti military voices in your head... They just don't count. Using "A lot of people say" & "some people say" is nothing more than a cowardly attempt to hide your own views.
You are SUPPOSED to be a reporter, cite your sources. Hell even I cite sources and I'm not on TV.
It's OK to be anti-war. It's OK to be liberal. It's OK to like Obama. It is NOT OK to tear down men and women who are willing to DIE for your rights. ESPECIALLY when you NEVER served and make a living using a right that they are there to defend.
Just so you know Mr. Mohyeldin, the military does NOT have the right to refuse an order (unless that order is illegal). So if you have a problem with the war, complain about the people in charge, don't tell lies about a warrior in the war.
If MSNBC wants to point at racists, how about pointing out that Islamic terrorists/extremists want to kill anyone not Islamic. And not their version of Islam. And anyone Jewish. And children for some reason. And anyone with a view that is not EXACTLY the same as theirs. And it oppress women. In case you missed the hint. These Islamic terrorists/extremists.... ARE RACIST and BIGOTED.
As much as extreme Liberals would like everyone to join in their belief that Chris Kyle was some sort of blood thirsty, bigoted monster, He was not. He was an extremely skilled warrior and a man. A man with flaws? Yes (who doesn't have them?). But those flaws are what makes him, and all who serve, Heroic.
