I'm sorry, but I don't give respect out just as a matter of course, because some people CHOSE to put themselves in harm's way (not for us, but for big business) and think that we really need to break out of the paradigm of warfare, the military and resorting to violence.
Sure, this has flaws and I'm sure some people will say" but what about if they didn't do it you'd be speaking Japanese" etc and to them I say "konichiwa".
I'm done with glorifying, idolising, respecting, praising the military and the people who choose to sign up.
