    Chris Kyle Murdered

    http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=18389238

    "A former Marine has been charged with three counts of murder in the killing of former Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle, the most deadly sniper in U.S. history, and another man at an Erath County, Texas, gun range, police said."

    Unbelievable. Killed at the range with a friend. Sources tell me nobody knew he was killed until later in the day because the only people there were Chris, his friend, and the shooter.

    Mr. Kyle ended the life of many a man who was not expecting to die when they did. He apparently went the same way.

    He did this in the line of duty to enemies of our country. He saved a good number of American lives by doing what had to be done. God bless and keep him.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    No American's life would have been in danger if we weren't there. Mr. Kyle was proficient at killing people who were merely fighting a Foreign Invader.

    Hopefully before he died, he was able to repent of what he did and the PROFIT he made from KILLING.


    Defending Mr. Kyle's "accomplishment's" is equivalent to defending the actions of a member of a home invasion crew who proficiently kills off any armed occupants who could have harmed the other invaders.


    SouthernBoy, you would be signing a different tune if Mr. Kyle's name was Mr. Chang, who set records killing many an armed resistor in China's War of Debt Collection in the USA.



    We didn't BELONG in Iraq and glorifying Chris Kyle's "work" there is the worst form of Nationalistic Propaganda. To profit from the killing of other human beings comes with spiritual consequences.

    Iraq is a better place today than it was under Hussein. Kyle was part of that.

    Maybe you like it when dictators use chemical weapons to gas and kill 25,000 women and children ?

    Please leave America.
    You're kidding right?

    Iraqi deaths due to US involvement(War, Sanctions, War) over 20 years topped 1 MILLION!

    WE, sir, gave Saddam those chemical weapons he used on his own people. WE, sir, promoted and supplied Iraq's war with Iran that cost 500,000 lives.

    We MADE Saddam.

    You, are a prime example of what Goebbels on Steroids type propaganda does to the American mind.

    I'm on Jeff.State's side with regard to not glorifying Kyles "accomplishments". As far as I'm concerned, he's just a senseless murder at a shooting range.


    The downside is that Kyle won't have the opportunity to discover how he was duped into serving the empire, nor repent or seek redemption for his killings. That he killed for empire is bad enough; that he won't have the chance for the latter is tragic.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Did we not give Sadaam all those chemical weapons to gas those Iranians in the 80's?

    Just sayin...

    Chris Kyle Murdered

    Instead of demonizing a soldier who lost his life due to some senseless act, why not instead look at it through the eyes of this forum and the Second Amendment.

    Chris Kyle was an outspoken supporter of the right to bear arms and was a prominent voice for the nation to hear some of our views.

    Why would you judge someone based his being a sniper? Just because that was his job doesn't mean that's who he was.

    In my opinion we have lost an advocate to our cause and we should all mourn his loss for that reason if for nothing else.

    Ummm. The US Government did; not we. The fedgov is not the nation; its senior personnel are not the leaders of society.

    Sorry, but the news was making the rounds within minutes of the event occurring. The hue and cry for a pickup truck "high off the ground" was on the air before, as best I can pin it down, rescue vehicles arrived.

    Initial reports suggested that Kyke and his friend were at the range to help someone deal with a PTSD issue. That has been clarified to more accuratrely report that Kyle and his friend were representing Kyle's security business at a charity event (fund-raiser?) and that the shooter is alleged to have a PTSD diagnosis.

    ALWAYS WATCH YOUR SIX! If you can't, take steps to reduce the territory you need to cover or use mechanical devices. Be polite, be professional, and have a plan to kill everybody you meet. And have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.

    Agree with the politrics that sent him out to do his job or not, but recognize that he tried to do his job always with consumate skill and never in anger.

    In spite of the fact that he was a mud puppy I wish him fair winds and following seas.

    stay safe.

    Friends, Americans and countrymen, lend me your ears;
    I come to bury Chris Kyle, not to praise him.
    The evil that men do lives after them;
    The good is oft interred with their bones;
    So let it be with Chris Kyle.

    What cause withholds you then, to morne for him?
    O judgment! thou are fled to brutish beasts,
    And men have lost their reason. Bare with me;
    My heart is in the coffin there with Chris Kyle,
    And I must pause till it come back to me.

    Americans, YOU and ME are responsible for letting OUR Government do what it does. We elect the POS to their "representative" positions, WE pay our taxes to fund their actions, WE allow them to continue their destruction of the Constitution and this Nation unmolested.

    Yes, WE did. Our society is morally bankrupt, the Government/"leaders" we put in place are a mere reflection of US.

    Some people need to take some history lessons and see where some of the past dictators have come from. The US did not put every bad guy in power, no matter what some of the nuts (including some who come to this forum) want to think. We did not provide every nation chemical weapons. We have not backed every piss poor leader. At times, I wonder how many people on this forum would not pass a legit evaluation.

    BTW Jeff, look in the mirror before accusing others of being linked propaganda in any way. You are only spouting off some spoon fed material that you can in no way back up. Even the Liberal media trying to burn Bush wouldn't use the things you have used because they know they would be made fools of for doing so.

    And you willingly live in that same empire. I guess you're not so good yourself.

    I absolutely do not live willingly in that empire.

    I want it stopped/gone!

    I discovered in the last five years or so that empire existed and had thrust itself upon me. It was here before I was born. It has lied to me about its justifications for existence and its operations since I was old enough to listen. It leeches my produce and the produce of my countrymen to maintain itself, driving us into crushing debt and economic ruin. Almost everything about it is illegitimate.

    This is my home. I do not owe the empire and its operators to leave it. Just the opposite--they owe it to me and us to cease or leave.

    I would guess that most mental healthcare professionals would not recommend amateur therapists try to treat a PTSD sufferer by taking them on a trip to a gun range. Maybe I'm wrong. Is that a recommended therapy?

    And you may never will; they don't publish this kinda stuff. You sure seem to trust our gov't lol

    Sure, and we are still not developing new chemical weapons or biological weapons either ...

    Remember, this was in the late 70s-80s time period .. killing Iranians was considered OK.

    More effective yet: calling your opponent "Hitler" or "Nazi". There's no defense!
