Who really cares? Sure your actions may promote them, but your reasoning is not for those reasons.

It's good to see this attitude chimed in right off the bat. No, civilians do not tell our military to go to war. What you just said you believe in is indoctrination. My condolences.
Civi's didn't tell you to go to war. Your commanding officer did, and his did as well, and up and up.
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.
