What does he need "the Russia Highest Honor Award" for?
It will not be worth a credit for his next life, his deeds and actions will!

It's purely symbolic, those awards are to honor people in death for the sake of the family as they gave his or her life serving their country. We have funerals for the family, not the corpse.

Many people are honored posthumously. I don't see anything wrong with that

Nothing wrong maybe,
unless in cases like this it is felt as a gesture that hurt others, enemy victims!

Why not honor them [if they really deserve] when they are alive?
Is it possible that there are no other soldiers still alive who have the same merit?
...... sorry boys, we will honor you when, wait, if you die at war.

My point is what difference does the honor make to the dead, or what will the dead gain from it?

I'm not arguing about a simple funeral for family, friends, corps and officials, and I agree also with Strigoi about the symbolic. But I don't like the fact of making it bombastic, declaring a hero and honoring him [for fighting].

I do not have the statistics, but I assume that the reasons of most wars or terror attacks have been acts of revenge.

But he did die at war.

And like Strigoi explained very well, I thought, is that honoring the dead is not for the dead, it's for us living people. I too have put down roses and candles on the graves of fallen heroes. It's a token of gratitude and appreciation, not done to "gain" anything.

Well the Truth
Though it hurts to say
it's there ,,
and it ain't going away

Honor thy Hero's
and to all the rest
treat them like zero's

set a statute to the Man
who blew up a country
just because they can

Weapons of Mass ?
oh com'on man
that bullshit
ain't gonna last

Can't see your future
when you ignore your past

I can't stand it no longer

If you're going to Bleed
your Deeds ,,

first you need ,,,,,
A look at your seeds ,,,

You came from War
back and forth
you've pushed it
more and more

Can't change your Minds
when all you've ever been
is fruit off the same old Vine

War Monger Man
here's your award

Just make sure Man
it doesn't turn into
your Just Reward

So Stand for Humanity
or Step down

This World Needs a Leader
not another Clown

World been run by your Vanity
get the F out Man
Just step down .

Talk drain a Swamp

meanwhile ,,
down in the Island
with little Boys you Romp

Sick is your mind
sick your goal

If I was to do right
You'd be dead in a Hole

You treat people like a slave
think it's best and time
for you to retire to a Grave

Yeah , I know , You're the Best there is

at what ? filling our cups with Piss ?

Protest Song # 49
same old song
every freakin' time

Tired of Writing same old Verse
time and again , over done ,,,

Try changing your ways ,,,

Before You fall
and destroy it all ,,,

~~~ Something to Chew on ,,, if you can't change your Pattern , Repeat , and you're down for good ~~~~~~

so , what's this thread about anyway ?

Have a Happy Picture

I don't know anymore...

Still saying that you fight
if/when your homeland is attacked

- everything else reeks of imperialism
and bat shit crazy unrighteousness.

Syrians - nobody else - still going to have
to solve Syria's problems.

Seems to me foreign intervention
is making things evolve backwards
over there, right now...

It's to convince the civilians that his death was for the greater good. What it does is put a price on life.

That said, is it real?

I was recently having a conversation with a friend. The possibility arose that, if this is all a simulation, that the POO might know and that the lives lost may have no consequence.

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
