O/T Disrespect towards troops have you seen this?

I had heard about this on a local talk radio station and couldn't believe it. So I did some checking and found out it true. Apparently this guy who has an obvious forgein name thinks that it's up to the troops where they are stationed and fact of the matter is it's because of these troops that this [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] is welcome here. Maybe he'd like to go back where ever he came from and enjoy the freedoms they provide.
Here's the story
Here's the owner of the companys name
Wish we were all as proud to be Americans as my eight year old.

Re: O/T Disrespect towards troops have you seen th

He's right!!! I was in the NAVY durring Desert Shield and Storm. And One of the reasons I was there is so that we could have Forums like this to discuss the things we enjoy and love...lets face it this is a Jeep forum adn how many baby anouncemts do we see or OTs for that matter...Its all good this page is what we make of it. If I decide I dont like it I am free to go.
That being said it sounds like the company rep does not understand how the military works. And yes mayby someone should politly explain the basics of military deployment. It is complicated to an "civilian." As for his feelings they are just that HIS feelings. Furthermore I am proud that he feels comforable and safe enough to publicly speak those feelings. Sonds like Our Troops (past and present) have done there job quite well!!!!
Keep up the good work and we are all pullin for ya.

Yes the owner is Pakastani, yes there was a reply to some Army guy, and the owner of the company says he fired the individual that made the response to the Army guy.

Just like I said in the other forums about this, Freedom goes both ways, they/anyone has the freedom to speak their mind and you, the consumer have the freedom not to usse that company,...it's up to you.
