    An day of reflection. However Trump found the opportunity to put himself again on the foreground, by stating that the "dead" would be proud of him of what he has achieved. Please bring the barf bucket. I guess people are forgetting that most wars were fought for nothing and did not make the world a better place. Also there should be an other Memorial Day for all the killed people due to our fantastic gun laws; I bet the number killed is close to all the soldiers killed in our stupid wars. Anyway enjoy your barbecue etc. The dead will miss all that fun. When is the US going to learn? Never I guess. Is a flag or the pockets of the rich more important than an human life?

    All valid points Dutch, let's not forget all of the wounded in action and their never ending medical costs and care. The world is still not a safer place after all of those wars. People around the world hate Amerika and Amerikans.

    The solution to gun deaths is to remove all guns. Since there is no vocal support for removing all guns I would guess that leaders of antigun groups think the USA will not accept removal of all guns. The rally cry "No more" used by David Hogg does not seem to have the support for "no more".

    Yes Dock you are right; not one country since Ghenjhis Kahn had so much negative influence on the world as the US ; the arrogance has only grown over time since WWII and will be the downfall of this country. It is not hate, but more like why "meddle" with the rest of the world if you even can't elect an decent President, who has no clue of the world around the US. There are of course plenty of good things America did in the past, such as to help Africa with famine; the Marchall plan etc. So it is not all bad, except our "politicians" here have an real dumb "island" (banana republic) mentality here. If that does not change then America will become as Rome; an has been.

    My family have lost a fair few in the wars. They would have unseemly words to say if they'd heard that it was for some fat. draft-dodging politician to self-praise. Wars are fought by people who are bored or have to, to make profits for the very rich.

    I volunteered for a duty assignment that I didn't get. Had I gotten that assignment and then lived to realize it was all about lies and innocent people died because of my ignorant persona at that time ???? Mr. Trump, I don't think you would like to confront fallen heroes.
