Now, the one thing I want to get across here is that the US Military does not start wars or military action. Civilians do. Every time. Civilians tell our military to "go there" and the military obeys
I have a lot of respect for civilian control of the military. Otherwise, we have a military dictatorship. I just wish civilians understood that. You can't force your military into battle, then condemn them for going there. That's the epitome of being hypocritical.
Civi's didn't tell you to go to war. Your commanding officer did, and his did as well, and up and up. Please don't EVER try to say the PEOPLE told you to go to war. You need to admit your own fault. You were duped into a nationalistic standpoint due to your family upbringing and YOU will continue that family tradition of military. Because it's something YOU were taught and now believe in, and now you are passing the belief. Our military has been a glorified killing brigade for the better part of 2 decades. There were never real threats in our invasions, only private interests and false information. I respect people that join the military, because you applied for a job that you will now possibly die in, but at the same time I also loathe you. You serve a corporate interest. If you didn't you wouldn't be paid.
