Fellow Soldiers Call Bowe Bergdahl A Deserter, Not A Hero - CNN.com

Fellow Soldiers Call Bowe Bergdahl A Deserter, Not A Hero - CNN.com

“"In this case it means 5 other lives" - we are finding out that this report is BS.
"It also presumes that person was not a traitor." No, it is unconditional. Get him home and then deal with him, but never leave a soldier behind.
"Paying for a Trade leads to issues with Other Militant Groups, It does not show American Superiority." Nope, it has always been done this way, no matter how tough we talk. We are winding down this war now, and it is time to get our soldiers home - as has been done in every war.
"if you feel the Kid does not belong home to face the realities of his actions" I never said that, the first and only responsibility is to get all our soldiers home. After that, the military can deal with him how they want to.”

“Your right about the 5- that was in Roadblocks-6 includes the one that got killed directly looking for him... As for the rest I enjoy your skewed take on reality, And as far as what always has been- Never meant to be right. Only quiet and mostly before the internet accountability. And finally if you don't agree with a point you only emphasize the counterpoint by arguing...”

“You seem to have no sense of history...only dogmatic and unrealistic beliefs.
"Let’s recall that the United States negotiated the release of 591 U.S. POWs held by North Vietnam as part of the 1973 Paris peace accord. McCain was among those who benefited from the accord. There’s no doubt that the accord came at a heavy price for the U.S. war cause because, in order to get those prisoners out, the U.S. effectively had to agree to withdraw from Vietnam."
"Israel has made far tougher and more controversial decisions. In order to win the release of a single prisoner, Gilad Shalit, Israel wound up agreeing to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners, including some accused of some of the country’s most heinous mass bombing murders."
"The entire Iran-Contra scandal developed out of the Reagan administration’s desire to win the freedom of U.S. hostages held by Iranian-backed militiamen in Lebanon, including Associated Press Beirut bureau chief Terry Anderson, who was held for six and a half years."
This doesn't include every prisoner negotiation / swap since the beginning of time. Nobody leaves their soldiers behind....except in your mind.

“Talk about being off subject, We are talking about an individual case, I don't believe McCain was a hero as he didn't follow the regulations which at that time was: Name, Rank and Serial. Many Servicemen died as they wouldn't give anymore- especially if it would effect the lives of others.
Those who don't LEARN from history are bound to repeat it: Ignorance keeps us in that loop, Because it was done in case history, Does NOT mean those decisions were correct for the situation or Correct now.
No Soldier left behind means (everything Physically to get them- In this case it means 5 other lives)- It also presumes that person was not a traitor-Some might argue that makes him more valuable. Paying for a Trade leads to issues with Other Militant Groups, It does not show American Superiority. Trying to substantiate something that is Wrong only shows lack of Independent thought. You are clearly Wrong again if you feel the Kid does not belong home to face the realities of his actions- What Ever those were.”
