Alright before all y'all try to vindicate this ghoul just remember:

- Iran-Contra, flooded cities with cocaine, helped Oliver North brazenly lie, pardoned everyone involved
- supported fascism in Yugoslavia which helped create a civil war and genocide
- highway of death, killing thousands of civilians
- invasion of panama
- pardoned literal terrorists like Orlando Bosch
- ignored AIDs crisis just like Reagan
- defended Pinochet
- paraded the downfall of the Soviet Union, helped Yeltsin and his buddies "privatize" major industries which created the rise of Russian billionaire oligarchs
- allowed his neocon friends to use his idiot son as a tool to continue their imperialistic foreign policy in the middle east

    The man was a hero just from the standpoint of flying successful bombing missions against japan in WWII. Let your hate be tabled, at least for a full day.

      Hitler was a highly, highly decorated veteran of WW1. Does that make him a hero?

      Brutally bombing Japan was a war crime. We killed over 100k civilians, burned Tokyo to the ground, and nuked two cities. Being part of that doesn't make someone a "hero"

      No one asked them to cowardly attack pearl harbor and then ignore multiple requests to surrender.

      Bombing Japan was a war crime? This was before the Geneva conventions. What about the millions of citizens and soldiers killed by japan in China and Korea and Singapore. The Japanese were brutal and complicit in genocide. They instigated and started a war and we tried to end the war. If you are going to start a war don't be mad if your victims get desperate. Even most of the victims in Japan understand the grievances of their war.

      You need to read WW 2 history. The Japs were some of the cruelest occupiers and I won’t shed a tear about bombing them.

    How petty and small do you have to be to post a hateful message within an hour of a mans death? Try looking for the good things he did. Decide to focus on positive things.

      No, just don't be a revisionist. We don't need to eulogize people who's careers are built on the graves of innocents.

    You have a trivial understanding of how the world works. Please don’t run for office as you may have to deal with hard decisions and not great outcomes.

      I'm happy to debate these points but I have a feeling you won't be able to. I would like to see you defend Iran-Contra.

      I am not sure what there is to debate. You take an over simplification and one side account of history to make an American president look bad on the day he dies. If you want to celebrate and be a dick - it’s your right. I wonder what the Kuwaitis’ think of him? He served his country in probably more ways then you have and while all things are not perfect - they are not as simple as you list out a few negatives.

      OP
      No shit. A few bullet points about some of the terrible things he has done isn't going to be an exhaustive look at his terrible past. But so far I have shown more knowledge about the subject than you by far. Probably because I was an adult when this happened and you weren't.

      Remember when we shot down an Iranian airliner and he refused to apologise? I remember. Remember when he funded an illegal civil war in Nicaragua and then pardoned everyone involved? I remember. Remember when he flooded US cities with crack and then made more harsh sentencing for crack than cocaine, effectively targeting poor black Americans? I remember.

      So everything bad that happened while he was doing his 40 years of public service falls on his shoulders? Ok then your right. He was a bad evil person who did nothing for the country or care for those of other countries.

      Bush did. Clinton’s sanctions also starved millions of Iraqis to death. Death is sad, but I’m not particularly sad when people like them die... they usually get to live long, good lives at the expense of people here and abroad.

      “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not nor ever been in favor of making voters or jurors of n***oes, not of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry white white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality”

  • If tomorrow all the things were gone
    I'd worked for all my life
    And I had to start again
    With just my children and my wife

    I'd thank my lucky stars
    To be livin' here today
    Cause the flag still stands for freedom
    And they cant take that away

    And I'm proud to be an American
    Where at least I know I'm free
    And I won't forget the men who died
    Who gave that right to me

    And I gladly stand up
    Next to you and defend her still today
    Cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land
    God bless the USA

    From the lakes of Minnesota
    To the hills of Tennessee
    Across the plains of Texas
    From sea to shining sea

    From Detroit down to Houston
    And New York to L.A.
    Well, there's pride in every American heart
    And it's time we stand and say

    That I'm proud to be an American
    Where at least I know I'm free
    And I won't forget the men who died
    Who gave that right to me

    And I gladly stand up
    Next to you and defend her still today
    Cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land
    God bless the USA.

    And I'm proud to be and American
    Where at least I know I'm free
    And I won't forget the men who died
    Who gave that right to me

    And I gladly stand up
    Next to you and defend her still today
    Cause there ain't no doubt, I love this land
    God bless the USA

      John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
      John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
      John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
      But his soul goes marching on

      The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
      The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
      The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
      On the grave of old John Brown

      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      His soul goes marching on

      He captured Harper's Ferry with his nineteen men so true
      He frightened old Virginia till she trembled through and through
      They hung him for a traitor, they themselves the traitor crew
      But his soul goes marching on

      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
      His soul goes marching on

      John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back!
      John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back!
      John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back!
      His soul’s marching on!

      His pet lambs will meet him on the way;
      His pet lambs will meet him on the way;
      His pet lambs will meet him on the way;
      They go marching on!

      They will hang Jeff. Davis to a tree!
      They will hang Jeff. Davis to a tree!
      They will hang Jeff. Davis to a tree!
      As they march along!

      Now, three rousing cheers for the Union;
      Now, three rousing cheers for the Union;
      Now, three rousing cheers for the Union;
      As we are marching on!
