Another mission
The powers have called me away
Another time
To carry the colors again
My motivation
An oath I've sworn to defend
To win the honor
Of coming back home again
No explanation
Will matter after we begin
Another dark destroyer that's buried within
My true vocation
And now my unfortunate friend
You will discover
A war you're unable to win

I'll have you know
That I've become...

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side
A terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war

Another reason
Another cause for me to fight
Another fuse uncovered
Now, for me to light
My dedication
To all that I've sworn to protect
I carry out my orders
With not a regret
A declaration
Embedded deep under my skin
A permanent reminder
Of how we began
No hesitation
When I am commanded to strike
You need to know
That you're in for the fight of your life

You will be shown
How I've become....

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side
A terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war

I'm...

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side
A terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I am indestructible (indestructible)

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side
A terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war
-lyrics by David Draiman and Disturbed

This song describes the U.S. military perfectly. They are collectively the deadliest force ever assembled on the face of this earth or in the history thereof, and are truly indestructible. Semper Fi!

I don't intend any arguments this time, and I promise to keep politics out of this if you will do the same. Fair deal?

Yeah but its always troops or Disturbed threads with you. This time we have both in one. Not gonna get political on this end either.

Haha, you are right, I do need to diversify my threads more. The troop threads will continue but I do need to start posting threads on other topics.

Dude, seriously, if you dislike my threads, you really don't have to post anything in them ,or even read them for that matter.

Dont necessarily dislike them but I just dont see the point of making so many threads with pretty much the same subject line. We get it and I dont think anyone likes what the troops are going through and they ARE appreciated but there have already been several posts about it. Any thread posted is up for debate, some good, some bad. You cant just make threads and ask for no criticism. ;)

Okay, there have been so many irrelevant topics posted on this forum lately, but I can't post about the troops so guys like Ranger and Ecststatic can't read, feel appreciated, and enjoy them? My opinion is that there cannot be enough thanks given to people like the above, and so I put threads like this up for them.

It certainly beats a thread about how to get fired as a TV journalist.

Is someone else going to respond to this? I posted it with good intentions, none of which involved giving Destroyer yet another opportunity to be a troll.

I like the lyrics. I should have had the courtesy to say so. I'm not sure what else to say. This is the lounge and you should be able to post what you want. No one is obligated to read it if the topic doesn't appeal to them. I've totally ignored some of the threads here because they don't interest me. I've also posted new threads and received no comments.
It's the lounge, you can mingle or move on.

Thank you, Devil Dog.

I agree with you; I don't post in threads in which I have no interest; I either post in those that do interest me, or post my own threads. Some of them are succesful; others go unread.

The last time that I checked, I wasn't the only one who has ever posted a troop tribute video, or even posted a topic so random as weekend travel plans, slightly amusing yet pointless youtube videos, or other such.

I respect the rights of other forum members, but request that my right to post be equally respected.

That said, this video is an expression of thanks only. It is not intended for political debate or expressing some personal grievance that one of you may have with me. For either of those, use private messages.

Now, let us move on.

Yes, just like the last one went entirely too far and was pointless bickering, which was most likely your objective for this thread. I don't want your "bumps", thank you; I want a simple chance to say what I intend to say, let it be a short thread, and be done with it. I think that as a CF member, I have every right to that. If you have something which you dislike about my threads, then add me to your ignore list. Reading a thread does not in any way entail that you must post in it.

You have absolutely no class. That last post doesn't even rate a comment.

Destroyer, why are you so intent on wrecking his military threads? Let the man have his goddamned opinion. We let you have yours.

Because he is essentially a coward who, being incapable of seeing a pot without stirring it, will spend the rest of his life being an internet warrior. He'll spend the rest of his life patting himself on the back for his antics; those of us with lives outside of the internet will laugh at him and move on.

Do you guys know you can put people on an ignore list so you don't have to read the other's posts? Seriously.

Done. I asked him to do that a few posts back, if you recall.

Moving on. This one is "Like a Rock" by Bob Seger. Most veterans that you meet are rock-solid individuals, hence the song.

On a slightly different note, this came from a vendor management information site. You can see a significant connection between combat and negotiations in the message they are trying to convey.
I turned in my rifle long ago and now use a keyboard. I am in IT and deal with vendors who want to sell our aerospace company computing hardware, software and services.
