as a former marine, coast guard rescue operator, and govt contractor I have seen i huge shift in the type of psychological profile the military is interested in. they now focus on the bully, egotistical, power trippers.
from the early 90's until 2002, (govt contractor til 2005) when i was discharged due to injuries, i saw a MAJOR shift in the type of guys reporting in. the same thing happened in law enforcement around the same time. it was not accidental or a coincedence.
I am insure if it was due to the decent moral guys no longer joining because of the amount of info now accessable, or if some type of "stepford wife" thing is being done on a subtle level.
anyway, soldiers of today are VOLUNTEERS NOT DRAFTEES, so the whole honor and respect our troops is not as necessary. anyone who signs up to be a war criminal should not be respected or honored, a large number of the troops today are DEGENERATES. Pat Tillman types are few and far between. (and look what happened to him).
this type of thing also happened in vietnam (trophies, rapes, theft). only then, the guys were forced to war. and it was a real war, meaning face to face against an equally matched opponent. Today's war is so one sided like a NFL palyer against a peewee leaguer. and these degenerates actually think they are "a force for good"?

anyone notice that the stories of the soldiers posing with the dead Afghans were all over the news yesterday, however today it is nowhere to be found? This was the lead story on Drudge Report yesterday with pictures and about 7 Separate links. Now I can not find one link to anything about it. Also went to fox news, CNN, msnbc, and cant find a word about it.
