  • Chris killed alot of people for his country and deserves respect this is a stupid question posted by someone who wants attention

  • Yes. Chris killed dangerous people who opposed freedom, human rights, and who killed innocent people to communicate a political message (terrorists).

  • He killed the enemies of America and helped ensure the safety of his comrades-in-arms.

  • You people who picked no, you disgust me.

  • If you just read his book and things hes said the man was sadistic. Now that could be a unique result if trauma i dont know and u feel bad for his family after his death but he wanted credit for killing katrina looters, has such a hugh reported kill theres no way none of them were civilians, said he enjoys killing and sees it as fun and misses it, and said he wished he could just kill every oerson he sees holding a qaran, innocent civilian or not. Im not comrortable calling him a hero. .

Many people think he was. Heroes are often violent people.
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:24:33.4500246-05:00
People thoughtt of as heros are often violent people. Not real heros.
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:26:41.7979228-05:00
Everyone has their own definition of a real hero
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:27:24.3628147-05:00
Although I agree with you. I think (uncorrupted) journalists are heroes
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:27:28.0106676-05:00
Yeah. Some of thise definitions are just really effed up and horrifying.
Renegader says2015-04-14T15:29:26.7711837-05:00
Do not let your disdain for the war impact your decision about this man. There are few people against these wars as much as me, but I can still see the large sacrifice he made.
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:30:04.0700664-05:00
Yeah i agree. Journalsists, non violent protestors, advocates, diplomats, people who help others.
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:31:46.5132963-05:00
Renegader—look at this from a broader point of view. He killed hundreds of people. Think of the ripple effect that each death had. It most likely made the Iraqis even angrier. Not a good way to end conflict
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:33:18.5746995-05:00
He's a serial killer. We only celebrate him because he wears a uniform
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:33:48.3588634-05:00
Renegader: I understand where you thunk that it isnt because i oppse the war, though i do, or the concept of what a sodier does in general. If a soldier stops the death of a bunch of innocents by killing a terroist im fine with calling him a hero. But thats not what this man is. The movie left so many things out. He loves to kill and calls it fun and hea extremely bigoted towards Muslims to the point where he said he would kill anyone he saw holding a qaran if given the chance. Theres plenty of other war heros you can focus on but never Chris Kyle.
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:35:03.0137781-05:00
War hero is an oxymoron. One man's hero is another man's terrorist. I refuse to label Chris Kyle as either
Renegader says2015-04-14T15:35:28.8666412-05:00
I agree, but the government was going to have someone do his job anyway. The war was going to happen either way. Also, many of the people he killed were armed insurgents trying to kill his comrades. Putting politics aside for a second, he was fighting to save the lives of his comrades, which is inherently noble. Should he have been there in the first place, obviously not.
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:37:05.9015541-05:00
Yeah that part happened. But there is more to the story in that he was a complete sadist. Also his comrades shouldnt be there in the first place. (i recognize thats not kyles fault nor theirs)
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:37:13.3057198-05:00
Everyone is trying to save their comrades, Renegader. What makes Kyle special?
Renegader says2015-04-14T15:42:46.4090656-05:00
He was a sadist as an one can probably expect from someone who has killed that many people. That is not important. @Minnymillerza What makes him special is the fact that he potentially saved many young American men about my age, who were sent their by our corrupt government to die. There is no denying he killed a lot of insurgents who were going to kill other friendlies.
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:44:13.4425320-05:00
And Ted Bundy "potentially" saved us from college age girls who could have killed someone while driving drunk?
minnymilerza says2015-04-14T15:44:23.9145717-05:00
Thank you Ted Bundy!
Stefy says2015-04-14T15:46:02.7063055-05:00
Thats insulting to soldiers Renegader. Tona of soldiers have killed many people and are traumatized by it or get through it. They dont act sadistic and say it was fun and theyd love to do it again sometime. There is zero excuse fir that. There is also zero excuse for expressing the sentiment that you eant to murser katrina looters and all Muslims guilty or innocent
Renegader says2015-04-14T15:50:08.6726141-05:00
Yeah college girls are comparable to insurgents hiding Kalashnikovs. Real mature.
Renegader says2015-04-14T15:55:00.3282962-05:00
@Stefy Most soldiers do not have 160-255 kills. Sorry mate
komododragon8 says2015-04-14T16:02:33.9433307-05:00
How many enemy combatants they killed doesnt define a soldiers worth or hero status. What matters is their respect for the rules of war and thier sacrafice for their fellow soldiers.
Stefy says2015-04-14T17:16:50.6016615-05:00
What komododragon said and also 1) Yeah but he's also a kill addicted sadist 2) For someone who admits to a strong desire to murder Muslim civilians, do you think that with such a high number of kills, as well as a certain suspected number of undocumented kills, do you think that every single one of those was legitimate?
Renegader says2015-04-14T17:44:02.8606713-05:00
@komododragon8 I only cited how many kills he had to separate him from other soldiers who have PTSD. Certainly, you must know that the number of people killed often correlates with mental trauma. @Stefy There is no substantial evidence showing the reason he made such kills was due to bigotry. This type of speculation fails to contextualize the "minor" detail that he was fighting a war.
komododragon8 says2015-04-14T18:10:07.4013834-05:00
Ah ok
Stefy says2015-04-14T18:51:46.2393279-05:00
Yeah its speculation. But there is hard evidence that he is a huge bigit with a weapon who expressed a very real desirto kill innocent Muslims. He is not a hero.
