Yeah, but it's their choice.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/3/04 - 7:02:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if I could tell they really did not want to go. They were going because of what someone else wanted and not what they wanted. Other than that, I would not talk them out of it.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/3/04 - 7:39:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, probably not.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/3/04 - 7:57:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, my 14 y/o bro wants to join it when he's older. Whatever!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/3/04 - 10:16:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, if they want 2 go & defend our country then they should b responsible 2 make the decision 4 themselves.

no, as long as they were 18 it would be their decision. if they were under 18 i would try to talk to them and see if that's what they really wanted to do. i wouldn't try to stop them.

If they were receptive to it, I would give them my opinion. Sure, ultimately it's their choice and they can listen to me or not as they choose - but I'm not about to let a good friend do something I see as morally reprehensible and dangerous to boot.

My Dad tried to talk me out of it.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 11:07:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would try to talk them out of it because I know what it is like, but I would also support their decision if my speeches didn't work.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 11:09:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. It's their choice.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 11:32:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just the opposite
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/7/04 - 12:10:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
no way...one of my best friends is in the army and im so pround of him
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/7/04 - 12:13:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't make a habit of trying to tell people how to live their lives. If they asked for my opinion I would give it to them but I would respect their decision.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/7/04 - 12:21:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope...it's their life. If they want to go through all that difficult training, maybe get sent to war and kill a few people...and probably end up either going AWAL, getting injured or even killed it's their choice.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/10/04 - 5:22:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes because they might get sent to Iraq.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/10/04 - 5:26:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Quietly. I wouldn't actually try to stop them, but I would talk to them about it.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:31:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
hey its 2 simple: what is your name referring to, your brain?
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:31:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, of course not.
It's their decision, not mine.
I'd be VERY proud of them anyway.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:33:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I'd give them a pat on the back and be proud of them.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/6/04 - 2:36:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
AWOL, Simple. Absence Without Leave.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/10/04 - 9:31:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
If you would've asked me that 2 years ago, I would've said yes. If you ask me now, I would say yes.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/10/04 - 9:39:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes b/c I don't want anyone supporting Bush besides I wouldn't want one of my loved ones killed.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/29/04 - 10:34:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No I wouldn't talk them out of it. I'll be like "Are you sure you want to do it?"
"Are you really sure?"
"Are you really, really sure?"
"Are you really, really, really sure?"
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/29/04 - 10:38:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, whatever makes them happy.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/29/04 - 10:50:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
If they really wanted to do it then I would let them but of course I would be hestitant about it.
