Warriors

I was reading a blog, a popular blog by the way, and he mentioned how he was a writer and a warrior and some other dribble. It got me thinking just a bit about a pet peeve of mine.

But let us first explore the word WARRIOR:

Etymology: Middle English werriour, from Old North French werreieur, from werreier to make war, from werre war
Date: 14th century
: a man engaged or experienced in warfare; broadly : a person engaged in some struggle or conflict

By examining the word closely we find that to be a warrior you need have been engaged in warfare. I don't subscribe to the theory that anyone engaged in any struggle can be classified a warrior....sorry....just don't use that term to describe such struggles.

I get annoyed by people that describe themselves as warriors without ever hearing a shot fired in anger. And never have served a day in the service of their country. Freedom is and always has been paid for with the blood of the warriors that have taken up arms to obtain it and defend it.

So if you want to debate if the current war is like the crusades, a silly notion dreamt up by those with a total lack of understanding of foreign policy, history, region, and cultural affairs, don't refer to yourself in any shape or form as a warrior. Now if I am wrong and you have worn a uniform in the service to this nation, then I apologize. But if you haven't then you are no warrior, no matter how much you study about them. Go risk your life and then you will understand.

You should get out more often. I can't believe I actually read all of that, but since I did I had to tell you how idiotic you sound to me and I am currently active duty, 11 years. There's my opinion.

LOL...I do get out a lot....and after serving for 30 years I think I have a better view point on that then you. So if you want to debate me fine, but calling me idiotic makes you sound like a little boy.

Idiotic??? RogueDragon sounds like the man knows exactly what he is talking about... and he is a man who is a warrior!! I would put your 11yrs active duty to his 25yrs active duty and pick him to defend me any day. "Anyone who says FREEDOM is free has never been married to a SOLDIER"

Let me guess the blog you refer to...loyalty-not and honor-not? Never read it, never will!

Thank you Sir for protecting these freedoms that I hold so dear!

Well I looked at your profile kindacrazy and you live far from anyone military base, so you are a BS'er, no wonder you think Rogue's post was idiotic. And I have read the crap that loyalty and no honor write, dribble. Uniformed dribble in fact.
