I don't like the military because their only job is to kill human beings. Those thugs killed a million Iraqis already and meanwhile back home politicians are unwilling to spend the money to let us have health care! Unreal! Killing takes precedence over living!
I find it funny that the military folk are beating around the bush of so many innocent dead as if a wrong figure can justify killing.

My fundamental problem with the military is their use of brainwashing against their own men, when otherwise good Americans are torturing Middle Eastern people in secret prisons or firing on civilians in the streets I believe it has a lot to do with brainwashing and desensitizing.
I don't like it how the soldiers are used as pawns to carry out our government's plans be them legitimate or not. I don't like the fact that my friend recently came back from Afghanistan and wasn't the same person anymore and I could tell he would never be the same again.
I also don't like that they prey on mostly poor people from low income families, and minorities, giving them thousands of dollars to join. My friend was promised that he wouldn't be sent anywhere outside of the US and after he signed up and went through boot camp they told him he was going to Afghanistan to drive gasoline trucks over the border to Iraq.

I have more personal experiences too, but this one is the most well documented.
Read the comments at the bottom too, someone else on their had a similar experience and mentioned it.

So I ask the OP, do you think we should be worried when the POUSA orders his most battle hardened unit for a domestic tour in case we need them? Do we need to be worried as this is clearly against all laws and traditions since the Civil War? Do we need to worry when we see units being trained in urban warfare in Oakland California? Well, do we?
