I always hear this when I'm sad
I almost cried the first time I heard this song.
You are nice people.
I agree completely with you, and what I despise most in life is the indifference of people who choose not to do anything, when they can do so much to make the world a better place.
if we don't end war war will end us. H. G. Wells
True, that is always a probability. My personal beleif, is that human psychology (In most cases) dictates that we, in general, want to be better/superior to others. We may get lucky and evolve past te need for war, but in my opiniion it won't happen. The biggest reason is that some of our world's biggest super powers economies rely on war to keep their economy afloat.
mankind is also a species of growth. at some point we'll have to let go of violence to evolve. history tells us the "fight or flight" mentality must die for progress. we can't play childish games like follow the leader forever. group think will eventually stop, and there will be an age of enlightened thought.
The reason I say this, is because some of mankinds greatest acheivements have, sadly, been a product of war. Mankind is a species of necessity. We progress quickest when the situation is dire. I truly want peace, but I know it will never happen. Every period of peace will end, because humans are violent. There will always be someone who can stir shit up, and cause another war. Look at Hitler, he single handedly managed to start WW2 by using Germany & co.'s hatred of the Allies into a war cause
you hope it never does? when is killing good?improving, learning, evolving. what's the point if were not learning from our mistakes?
Please, please tell me your first comment was sarcastic. Cuz, if not, then fuck your comments are confusing. If you are serious, then I agree wholeheartedly with ur second comment. War is a terrible thing, unfortunately, it is in the blood of man to kill. That is something that will, unfortunately, never change, and in a way, I hope it never does.
not one person in the united states had a right to walk on their land. not once had the iraqi government or their people ever make a threat to any american nor had they ever asked for help. finding, and killing Saddam is one thing. Dropping bombs on apartment buildings and small businesses on public city streets is another. If you do not defend staying there, then you cannot defend the lie they used to go in originally. the end result was always their goal. so yes, there is blood on our hands
I can't defend staying there, but the actual invasion was justified. Should the world sit by and watch someone like that reign free? No matter what happened, invasion or not, things weren't going to get better unless someone did something.
If you hadn't noticed, shit was pretty fucked before we invaded. Pick your poison.
Just think about that, it shouldn't be good or bad. No one lives a perfect life. I do believe though that we should all try to strive for something more than what we are today; something better. America has more than enough room to improve. Other countries do to. Before you judge others think about something you or your country has done that you or it could do to improve it. Possibly something that you could do to help your country to improve.
Look at history, history is usually written by those that won. Not necessarily who is 'good' or who is 'bad'. No country is every going to write history portraying itself as doing something wrong. Note: I am an American citizen. I am not saying this to make what my country has done justified because we have done terrifying things to other countries; things that I am ashamed of. Events have occurred that haven't really had a decent reason, the politicians just found whatever reason.
im joining the navy when i get older and if i come back ill come back really fucking buff
There is no true way to do good, someone always gets hurt, we try to do one thing and what happens? people fuck up and we fail at what was meant to be a good thing. but if we did nothing then what? do we trade one form of hate for another? maybe it would not even be bad if we did nothing but nobody knows, we destroy ourselves, but we can save ourselves just as fast if we don't obsess over the crimes of others.
The government just uses us a pawns for their own greedy needs. If America wasn't so greedy, the war at Afganistan could have been prevented. But no, America has to try to take it, killing many of their own people for their greedy needs. I am an American yet, I hate my politicians.
True that mate...its why people believe in freewill. I totally agree and understand ^_^
I agree completely. And what you are referring to is laced marijuana, correct?
AHH A intelligent responce from someone on youtube? Its the end of the world!!Seriously though i couldnt have put it better myself. My ideological point of view is very similar to yours as im a Marxist so we rely on the idea of everyone being out for the greater good... but a large part of me just cant accept that the worlds like that.Hopefully im proven wrong ^_^
Marijuana is a plant, not a drug. Examples of drugs would be some of the things that citizens are being prescribed to every day. And though your viewpoint is quite nice, humanity is most likely never going to reach a point where everyone respects, loves, and tolerates each other. I wish that is was, but that's the human race for you.
You have a very cute look on the world mate. You seem to believe people will do whats right and always try to better humanity as a whole.Im a historian and i also study psychology at college so i dont take that view of people. Infact i believe everyone is only out for myselves (milgrams studies) but i realise i am biased. Point being, you cant convince me otherwise mate...no offence to you.
My boyfriend showed me this song and now i love it.
The world would be much more peaceful if everyone smoked weed. And before you berate me for saying this, try it. See if you don't become an advocate of world peace.
I would love an anarchistic society, but I don't think we could survive as one now. Society hasn't evolved enough yet.
Zimbabwi, various other african countries... chinaDo i need to go on... if anyone cared there would be a world wide purge...no one does anything due to pride or wanting to do the right thing anymore.
So true bro...a utopia would be a amazing world to live in...but its just that a Utopia...sadly its almost impossible to change the world anymore...although watch this space in 10 years time im going to be PM of the UK!
Lennon? Agreed, John Lennon was such a horrible person, should have kept his Liverpool trash to himself... literally worse than Mao, Pol Pot and Stalin combined.My point? That you're a fucking idiot, and I'll go ahead and block you straight away to avoid wasting more time on your extraordinary non-sense.
In words of Anti-Flag: There's no war without the warrior! :P
everyone just stfu and listen to this amazing songAll people are equal and they deserve to have thier own opinions, but you don't always need to voice them so just SHUT UP!!!!!!
.......WHAT!? why in the hell would the middle eastern peoples (people like you and me) want China to take over the US!? pick up a history book, the middle eastern people didn't hate us before we forced them off their land in the name of Israel. we've been bombing various middle eastern countries since then for decades now, you'd hate us too.
They'll hate us either way. That's guaranteed. Don't worry, we're pulling out,so be patient. I don't think it matters though. They'll hate us, EVEN if we were peaceful with them.
could not agree with you more
sorry you have to deal with that kind of shit.I live in san diego and i can tell you if some foreigners came here wearing camouflage and machine guns i wouldnt be too nice to them My family lives in san diego so ill pretend to be their friend and shoot them in the back too when they look away.
all agencies are the arms of the government. I'm demonstrating that their really is no threat (al queda are amateurs) and if their were the government is worthless in protecting us. here's an idea....maybe if we stop bombing the middle east...they'll stop hating us :o
TSA is NOT military you idiot! :( It's a CIVILIAN government organization.
I wonder how many people Rise Against has converted to be Vegitarians. I was already half vegetarian not eating Beef or Pork or Lamb, but in the past week that i've listened to them I am now a full vegetarian. Much respect to Rise Against. (:
no, but its true.
@misfits12o there's a difference between fighting for the US and fighting for what it should stand for. We should stand for loyalty, freedom, hope, and integrity. I wish there were more people fighting for that daily, it's disheartening seeing how cruel we can be. Anarchy doesn't mean no rules, it means no rulers. We are completely capable of becoming something great, we just keep screwing up and choose not to. For me, I'd rather fight to change who we are than simply watch.
i think this song is talking about the corruption of the military, but yet soldiers pull through and do the dirty work in order to create/maintain some peace.
@imnumber0ne Just because war has always existed doesn't mean we have to accept it and by that reasoning disease has always been around so whats the point in hospitals. My point is we should always try to do thing peacfully because no matter what they have do to us.
he almost cries in 3:32
rise against are anarchist they arent saying they love this country they r saying they respect soilders kinda. me i think they are brave to fight, but dumb to fight for the US
@doomlordist1 mexico wouldnt have a chance against US
@doomlordist1 stfu! does this comment even have place in this song!?!
war has allways existed and will allways exist, there will never be world peace. im not saying war is wrong because there are so many bad people that need to be eradicated (taliban for example) and there is no easy way to do so, war is a necessity in many cases, innocent lives lost is allways wrong but often unavoidable. its like "ChaosDragon018" says, there is a difference between war and warriors but also between unnecessary and necessary war.
@RavenDestroyer If it was possible to just swoop in, eradicate the military and government leaders, then I wouldn't hesitate supporting it, but that really isn't possible without putting the entire world at risk. (And I haven't even mentioned China being allied to NK)
@RavenDestroyer North Korea is the second largest military power in the world, with 41% of the nations entire population with military training. Not only that, North Korea have demonstrated that they're in possession of WOMD's.Saddam, on the other hand, was in control of a relatively small and ill-equipped army, which was easy to destroy. It's been a war against insurgents since 2003.
@themightychickens Kim Jung-Il did the same and its more then reason that Jung-Un will followIraq is fishy and stinks to the core
senseless killing....thats what war is to me. so many innocent people dying... this is the only life ive ever known. a life that is in the middle of a war. thats all ive ever known. i wonder what a life of peace is like.... maybe there will be less killing... sorry if i seem like a pathetic weakling of a person. but thats my opinion. thats what this song says to me.
Soooooo many people giving there sense on the Iraq war, ya Saddam would of been good if he stayed, bullshit. What just so he could hundred of thousand of more people?
@ChaosDragon018 the difference is there's the people giving orders and the idiots doing what there told. Your right there's a big difference between telling someone to kill, and doing the killing.Big difference. I'd rather die then take an innocent life.
@themightychickens Minus "remaining"
@ImFromIraq19 You don't see me justifying the occupation of Iraq. You see me justifying removing one of the most genocidal dictators of modern time. Please, do continue remaining ignoring reason.Also, I'm not American. You should consider that the next time you say I'm what's wrong with your country.
@themightychickensKeep telling yourself it was justifiable. The families that were torn apart, the innocent, good people that died, a country rich in history and life, now a wasteland. All justifiable. You are whats wrong with my country. The politicians of america are the real terrorist. Your on the wrong side buddy. While the one's in power get rich, we suffer and listen while they say its ok. Wake the fuck up.
@themightychickens yea, because we left as soon as saddam was killed right and we didnt harm any of the innocent iraqi people right? We didn't MURDER anyone else? I was born on american soil. I love and respect MY country, and the people that live here with me, but im ashamed of this government.Any Iraqi would have said they were better off with saddam in power then having americans invading their country. Thats really saying something because all iraqi's hated saddam.
@ImFromIraq19 Invading Iraq was justifiable. It had nothing to do with terrorism and nothing to do with oil (because for fucks sake, have you seen the oil prices decline since the war?)In Iraq there was an insane dictator who had killed over 300.000 of his own people using chemical weapons. Now tell me, is the world supposed to sit and watch idly while Saddam continues his ethnic cleansing?
@mike52038: and THAT, my dear friend, is precisely what this song is about. =) it's basically supposed to be like what a soldier would say when the cameras are off and the microphones gone, like if you were talking to him yourself. I think you better than anyone can understand this song. I can't even imagine how horrible it is, and much respect for everything you went through. I could never join the army....I'd rather live the rest of my life WITHOUT PTSD thank you.....
@bcm01391 really? when's the last time someone invaded America or atleast tried? al queda? please, the TSA fails over half of all tests. the only thing that has stopped another attack is al queda's own incompetence. how many failed attempts have their been? quite a few. how many have been stopped before they were attempted by the TSA? hmmmmm
This isn't an anti-military song, (well, not completely) it's more of a song about a soldier who loves his country, and he regrets all the things he's had to do.
@allwittynamestaken Military i also one of the main reasons why you're alive, I wouldn't forget that
@algiuz First off all, my insulting remark to the asstard who misused "your" IS NOT THE NORWEGIAN MILITARY GUY.Second, I don't give a flying shit what your native language is, English is my third language. (And not my last)Third, what is the point of 50% of your message?
@skillet123ize If you knew the difference between your and you're, I might have reacted differently to your reply. Right now I'm facepalming.
"I'm just doing my job"-typical soldier/police officerthey need to understand that THEY, not the bureaucrats, are the only reason the state exists, without them the government would just be 500 pissed off lunatics in a room. they are the only reason the government has the ability to kill, tax and torture
@mike52038 Which is a valid cause, but bringing up your personal experiences in a (very flawed) discussion makes you appear pathetic, not "heroic".
@mike52038 Nobody gives a fuck whether you've been shooting at people in a country that doesn't want you there or not.
@shotdark100 Iraqi-Afghanistan war is completely unnecessary. All Americans should know this by now.
Mustang, Hawkeye, Fuery, Havoc, Follman, Ross, Armstrong, Alphonse, Edward
@shotdark100 Invading Iraq and Afghanistan was not a matter of self-defense, you blabbering mongol.I'm not going to argue whether the invasions were the right thing to do, but please, stop being fucking ridiculous.
@winxclub92 shut the helll up he is protecting our country without him youd be deadand @Breman25 its ok hell come home safe
years ago two parents went out for dinner. A few hours later the babysitter was calling to see if she could cover the clown statue in the kids' room. The father said " Get the kids out if the house, we'll cal the police, we don't have a clown statue". The "clown statue" was actually a killer that escaped from jail. If you don't post this on 10 videos tonight the clown will be in your bed at 3:00am with a chainsaw in his hand. Sorry don't want this to happen to me
@wimopy Have you fought in Iraq or Afghanistan?
@winxclub92 You're a dickwad. Get over it.
@Bremen25 your boyfriend is a murderer, deal with it.
@sbcistheboss I don't believe in war or mass violence (sometimes an individual person deserves a walloping). But I DO believe in, and love, my boyfriend. I don't want him killing. I want him to come home to me safe.
thumbs up if the lyrics gave you chills
Don't confuse the war with the warriors. Believe it or not you anti-military folk there is a difference between the 2.
@Bremen25 Well, just remember to tell him he's bombing and killing the wrong people most of the time. :/I still wish him luck for you though. Not for his war.
@SilvuRBLX they are telling you what the military have to go through to protect us ...
Half the people don't actually know what the song is about.
@ash7mar The fact of there being arguments on the comment section should not stop you from enjoying the music, unless you have a huge lack of focus. Who gives a flying fuck anyways? It's the Internet, let people do what they want to do, argue about whatever they want to argue about, write however they want to write.There are no rules here. If you feel ''offended'' by arguments on RUclip, then just ignore them and listen to the God damn song, easy peasy.
@xlifeispointlessx That doesn't really the point of my comment, now does it?
@Bremen25 You must be proud; you have someone who might fight for you and what he believes in, so yeah, i'll pray.
@themightychickens Yes but his father also disowned him.
In addition, I love lamp.
@Niconi22 And you're blocked. Read what I write or stfu.
@Niconi22 She's talking about fucking mental therapy. MENTAL THERAPY. MEEEEEEEEEENTAAAAAAAL THERAPY. Ignore the fucking cancer patients, will you?Are you just pretending to be utterly retarded, or are you actually real?
@Niconi22 I'm not sure if you've misread something or are just generally retarded, but I was referring to mentally unstable people being mentally unstable, not cancer patients. If I were implying all cancer patients were mentally unstable, I would perhaps have said so.
@Niconi22 Why the fuck are you calling all bi-polar people retards? How dare you? Manic-depression comes in many forms, and just because some have it tough doesn't mean you get to insult all of them with your pathetic generalisations.Confused? 'Cause I'm just following your trend, accusing random people of saying things they clearly never did.
@Bremen25 ill pray for him because ill be enlisting for Marines soon so I know how you feel cause of my friends but i will pray for him :)
@warguy1945 Guess South Park's "All About Mormons" was wrong. Lawl. Also, I'm a Christain, but I don't mess with people that aren't and I don't tell them they're wrong or they're going to Hell, I just say okay do what you want to. That's why I say 'faith' in humanity. This goes to everybody: let people do what they want, it's not your bussiness anyway. And yes, listen to the music...even if it's from ATR. 8-|
@abb890 Wow. Really? You sir, make me very sad. Faith in humanity dwindling right before my eyes...
@abb890 You Christians are so nice :-)
@themightychickens damn atheist go to hell.
@themightychickens Aww, you beat me to it. I was going to say pretty much the same thing that you said.
@themightychickens It doesn't. Just stating a fact.
@Bremen25 So, what you're saying is that it's great therapy for the emotionally unstable... Now, how exactly does that apply to you?
@Fallingangel100 Praying: a type of meditation and mental therapy that has been proven to have positive results in cancer patients, whether by the relaxation it gives, a placebo effect, or something science can't prove.Bite me.
@nynick7 I'm hoping that none of this happens to him, and he doesn't DO any of this. I had nothing to do with his decision.
