 @MrWeenie, if you had to do what they have to do everyday you'd have a completely different view on it, imagine the shit they have to go through and what they've seen, more to the point its a good way to bring americans and brits together in biking and the shit-ass war, POD all day!

 I have the utmost respect for any man or woman who joins the military of their own free will to fight to defend the lives of people who in some cases hate their military. that takes balls. my brother is a combat medic, and next spring, I'm shipping out to boot camp. I cant stand the idea of being one of the civilians cheering on the heroes from the safety of my couch. the fact that bikes are sometimes allowed on base might just make deployment bearable!

 The war in Irak and Afghanistan have little to do with bringing peace to that area. The US economy was not growing at a point that they had to search for new means to make a buck or two (knowing that the financial system will collapse anytime soon they are trying desperate to save it by any means)

I totally respect the loyal soldiers that give their lives for peace and security for people that have non. But the true reasons of this war are a bit different, they are risking their lives in a filty game of power and money. It has yet to be proven that the war in Irak and Afghanistan have brought peace and stability to that area.

In Afghanistan, since the United States Army is there, the Opium production went up big time, especially in 2007 (Opium is what is used to make the drug Herione) The funny thing is, the Afghan people don't make a lot of money on this, but the most influential politicians and international relations do. It doesn't need a smart guy to know that the United States is making most of this money.

It is believed, and their are hard facts, that the Taliban wanted to ban all Opium production from Afghanistan in 2000 while their Opium production was only 10procent of the world wide production, in 2001 the US went in there and by 2005 90procent of all the Opium came from Afghanistan. Most of the biggest Opium dealers are now top officials in Karzai's (Afghan) government.

Do your own math on who has got the power in that area...

Opium kills over 100.000 people each year, mostly in Europe and Russia.

 I feel sorry for the American people who have fallen victim to the misleading financial system of their corrupt leaders. People are loosing their houses and everything because some people in the government discided that everyone should lend more money in order to keep the economie running. It's the modern slavery and designed to keep us working every day.

Really, it suprises that the American people are still taking this crap from their government.

And for more information on how the United States Governments play tricks on their people and the world, visit Wikileaks and have a nice read or two.

Love&Peace, we are one.

Great photo by the way, love it.

 r4p1s7: you are clearly a total idiot. As a serving soldier I have been to Iraq, Afghanistan and several other countries on many occasions. I joined the Army to serve my country, to defend us from acts of terror. I have charged down enemy fire and along with my fellow soldiers saved countless civilian lives. If you had seen some of the things I have you would withdraw your pathetic comment, the one you post from the safety of your nice warm house sat behind your computer. I have served alongside many fine American, Canadian, Australian, Dutch and Afghan troops, every one of them a hero, every one of them braver than you'll ever be! So to call us all retards, I'll be happy to supply you with my home address, pop round to discuss any time you like.

 @r4p1s7

I know where your comming from, but you might want to be a little less offensive about it. There are more ways to make a point.

The soldiers, from all countries are hero's in every way. I believe they have also fallen victim aswell. They did something they believed in and they trusted their governments.

Sadly, most of these governments have a double agenda and are never to be trusted for a full 100procent, we need to be critical and we most of all need to open up governments like Wikileaks . org is doing right now.

 @WestPennHunter:

This go's way beyond the troops. It's about the failing financial system we are living in, the same financial system that made your fellow Americans loose their jobs, homes and even lifes. So, close your eyes if you want to, but if your truely proud to be an American, you better start to question the Government who's destroying everything the American people before you have build up in all these years. They are throwing it all away.
  • 6 9
 Its not the government! You are ridiculously paranoid. The banks chose to give out loans for practically nothing, then when no one could pay of the loans (mortgages) the banks needed bailing out cause there was no money beacuse no one could pay off the loans. The only mistake the government made, and it was a mistake, no one is trying to destroy america, was that they let FM give loans for nothing. We need a new president now to fix everything, not Obama who just throws money at problems and keeps printing and printing.

 @r4p1s7: MURDERERS? What planet are you on? I have never murdered anyone, neither has anyone else I know of in battle. Your stupidity seems to know no limits! I have pulled a trigger on my enemy, because if I didn't I would be the one draped in my countries flag. All soldiers go to war because we are ordered to. Our it not to question why, ours but to do or die. A soldier at some point in your history will have fought for your right to free speach, vote, food, water, shelter, LIFE! Remember that next time you go mouthing off you utter twat.

 Honestly people, there is a time and a place for everything. This is a light-hearted biking website. Drop the political crap. If you care so much about these issues, find an appropriate place and an appropriate way to express that care. The caustic and vulgar remarks being made here do nothing but polarize. You will never win people to your side by calling them f-ing morons. You just intensify the hate in yourself and in them. It's a self destructive strategy. If you really want to convince people of a certain line of reasoning, start a political blog and ask people (politely) to visit it. Don't be a hatemonger on a biking site that people (I) visit for some fun and inspiration.

 Let's think for a second:

If we only had comments like "POD" ; "that a sick shot...keep it up" ; and the o- so overused "Sick" and "Stoked" comments, wouldn't it get really boring at some point?

Rules could also say "no politics", but do you think that everyone is able to resist? Politics is a topic you just want to talk about, doesn't matter how f*cked up you find our current politics. You just want your opinion to be heard.

It's good to see people talk about politics and let other come to realize the sad truth behind current wars. I totally agree with r4p1s7(not because I'm Bulgarian as well(live in holland) ), katinasd and all the other guys. But don't do it like r4p1s7 does it. Take it easy like katinasd and prove your point in less aggressive way. That works.

United we stand, divided we fall. Lets bring the "Divide and conquer" mentality down. We are all one. Act as one and be as one.

Peace & love to everyone that loves biking!

Okey they reason is "War on Terrorism"...but everyting was right until they don't attack Iraq because of the reason "the possibility of Iraq employing weapons of mass destruction ". When they do a lot of innocent people died(World Trade Center incident). After this everybody said that the iraqui and afghan people are terrorists because the mas media said so, but the funny thing about this whole theme it is cause even in 2010 80% of the iraqui and afghan people don't now about the WTC incident! What they know cause most of them is homeless they don't have to much food some childrens lost they parents or reverse... I realy believe that this war is poitless because America and United Kingdom spend a lot a of money on military and as you see they can't prevent the back-attack of the afghans and iraquis(example: multiple attacks in London in 2005). Another interesting thing is that cause the american and british guvernament said that they attack the iraquis and afghans because they are against the western culture but they do attacks only in America and in London. Germany, Spain, Italy... are western cultures but they don't have problems like this because they don't go to others country to make "peace".

Another interesting thing is that cause the american and british guvernament said that they attack the iraquis and afghans because they are against the western culture but they do attacks only in America and in London. Germany, Spain, Italy... are western cultures but they don't have problems like this because they don't go to others country to make "peace". So the scheme is very simple if you hit somebody he we will hit back...

 To be totally realist absolutly nobody was asking America to go in Iraq and make piece there! Okey they reason is "War on Terrorism"...but everyting was right until they don't attack Iraq because of the reason "the possibility of Iraq employing weapons of mass destruction ". When they do a lot of innocent people died(World Trade Center incident). After this everybody said that the iraqui and afghan people are terrorists because the mas media said so, but the funny thing about this whole theme it is cause even in 2010 80% of the iraqui and afghan people don't now about the WTC incident!

 A show for the troop s is awesome. Great backflip Superman, one of my favorites. As far as support for the troops goes. However they got there, and whatever they are doing there, they are in a tough spot, in some cases far less luxury than jail, so good for them getting a nice show.

 We are all truly mad.I feel blessed that atleast for now I live in a peaceful country.We as humans have lost are way and its sad.Just remember far more people have died after 911 then died on 911 and are still dying.Fathers,mothers,children its all sick.It wont stop anytime soon.Some terrorist with a dirty bomb or even a nuke wont end the world it will be how the powers that be react and use it to spread the hate that will.Im glad Canada didnt go to the lie of iraq and I hope they get out of afganistan soon.

 Regardless of wether the men and women serving abroad in this picture are doing what is right in peoples opinions, I respect them, and if I were ever the brave person they all are, I would be proud. I love this picture. Its even more awesome when you add a superflip, too.

 Okay let me just settle this. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is free to express it no matter how wrong someone else thinks they are. I may not agree with the war, but i do have respect for the men and women in uniform. Please just respect me and others and their opinions no matter how wrong you think they are.

 Fun Fact: In the USA 25% of every dollar you gave to the government goes to the military. (and is a waste IMO)
  • 2 0
 Sorry, but's that's actuall not a fact. Only 18% goes to the military, which is a HUGE difference--and that includes military humanitarian support around the world. Over 55% of the U.S. budget goes to Social Security (gov't-backed retirement security for everyone), Medicare, and Welfare/Unemployment. It's easy to call it a waste when you don't bother to think about the consequences of NOT spending the money to support and maintain our military.

 I don't understand how all these bulgarian and weird ass countries speak perfect english?
bikes make the world a better place !
  • 6 0
 Dear jakeheath you are very blind! In most of the "weird ass countries" as you named bulgaria and probably my country to which is Romania(we are neighbors) the english class and german or france class is obligatory at the school and at the university to. Another thing. I live in Transilvania which was part of Hungary before the second world war so my spoken language is hungarian, but obligatory we have to learn romance from the first class because you have to speak the languge of the country were you live. So I can speak hungarian perfectly, romance very good, english pretty well and a bit german to. Btw. tomorrow i was in Bukarest to make an english exam named "Lingva" which will be available for only two years and it costed to me a lot because it was about 40 pound which is a lot of money considering that cause my father makes only 80 pound/mounth. But luckily I dont have to ask money from my parents because i have fellowship which is again only about 30 pound but I have collected to make this exam for myself and I plan to make another exam in the near future TOEFL or Cambrige which validity will be lifetime.
