"Lewis, of Helena, said the state chapter of Veterans for Peace is coming together more slowly than he would like. He is also a member of Just Don't Go, a Montana group committed to "stopping the militarization of our schools."
Early on, the military shows off its shiny helicopters to kids and gives them little military pins, he said. The kids are primed.
"By the time they get old enough for us to talk to, they almost need to be deprogrammed," Lewis said.
They can't compete with the Department of Defense's resources, he said — Lewis can't furnish shiny helicopters emblazoned with peace signs.
He would keep kids from joining the military altogether.
While Lewis rants about "cutting off the oxygen supply to the empire," the services whip some kids into shape."
In U.S, "counter-recruiters" tell off people (youths and kids) who are interested in joining the military the downside of enlisting : abuse and harsh realities of the allegiance they swear upon.

“ . . Logical, since they are the future of our nations and are the ones who will determine the outcome of tomorrow. Educate them early from the age of 5 and when they reach their adulthood, a wise and intelligent man he will be. Teach him or her hate from youth and forever it will be nestled in their principles.
With so much anti-war sentiment going on around the world, is it logical to say that if we want a future with no war and conflict, our youths must reject military service?

I want to ask the members of this forum, is this a wise decision? In one view, yes, with youths totally dedicated to a peaceful "war-less" world and against military service, the world will be a much better place as soon as we die and our youths take over. It will be a whole different world with a new generation impregnated with ideas of peace and tranquility.

The "primal instinct to fight" is just an excuse for not exercising respect, tolerance and intelligence.

If Americans turned their backs on their country and refused to protect it, then we would be run over and destroyed in an instant. The ONLY thing holding back WW IV . . the

Darn! Now you’ve shifted to the Geo W pro WAR rhetoric, F/Fan.
