"Michael Phelps himself admitted he did wrong, thats why he came out and later apologized for his irresponsible behavior."

Nonsense. Mr. Phelps is sorry that he went to a party with strangers and was photographed violating some drug laws (taking a hit from a bong). He was given a choice between:

1) Tell the truth that what he does on his own time is his own business. This truth would cause him to lose millions of dollars in product endorsements, be thrown out of the sport that he loves and has dedicated his life to, prosecuted and convicted of several "crimes", and lose his freedom.

2) Or, he could tell a little lie and be rewarded with millions of dollars, allowed to play the sport that he loves, and keep out of jail.

It was an easy choice for him just like it would be an easy choice for 99.9999% of the people on this planet.

Besides the Pope and I am not sure of him, I can think of only one person who would do the right thing under those circumstances. He was a well-respected football player who gave up a very well-paid career in order to fight and ultimately die in a war that he strongly believed in. Unfortunately, he was unintentionally and tragically killed by one of his comrades in situation called "friendly fire".

Also, tragically, before his death, he had become disillusioned and began to see that the war, for which he had sacrificed everything, was unjust and based on lies. He had the courage to face that truth and the integrity to voice those forbidden thoughts. His name is Pat Tillman.

Hopefully, you and RR will someday face the truth about the injustice of your war against your fellow humans and their freedoms.
