Libertarians live in a fantasy world where... if you just don't engage people in the world, they'll leave you alone.

Do we have the information to make any assumptions on the intelligence of the average US soldier over seas?
I for one have no idea if teacher is right, or if you are right. If I had to guess I would bet it lays somewhere in between the teachers assertions and yours. But that is a guess.

My daughter just graduated Navy boot camp and is the happiest I’ve ever seen her. She turned down a full ride scholarship to serve because she feels it’s the most patriotic thing a person can do, and she wants to give back to her country that has done so much for her.
She knows she will never get rich, but she gets to pursue a career that is very interesting to her and feels a ton of satisfaction with her decision. This character isn’t even fit to polish her boots.

I am not pushing a narrative. Certainly not a political one.
I am talking about a guy who obviously has as chip on his shoulder. I studied a lot of Sociology, Psych and Anthropology in school. I have also worked since I was 13 in various jobs so yes, I know a lot about people. How they act. How they try to assert control. How they bully. How they are a benefit to society.
Like I said. He can act however he wants but not on his job. Using profanity and telling people they are stupid or not worthy because they are part of the Armed Services seems to be ok with you.
Biological studies lend support to the ethic of universal brotherhood; for man is born with drives towards cooperation and unless those drives are satisfied, men and nations alike fall ill...In this sense every man is his brothers keeper. For every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main, because he is involved in mankind.
