I guess you are one of those who fell for the lies. Reason why I haven't joined the army because they force you to go into a stupid war which I'm not going to be specific about it, but even Canada went to Afghanistan war on so called terror when they could've stayed out. What happened to the whole "Home Defense doctrine"? On the other hand joining Chinese army seems to have more hope of getting out because they haven't been sending troops into war since the last cold war. The only recent war they have is being in UN(africa) or special forces against ISIS. The west seems to be in a constant war just like Africa.
I mean after all, every single soldier in our service has volunteered to be in their position. There is no draft. If people want to war, let them war. It keeps us up to date with gadgets and resources to numb our minds and pretend none of it exists.
