I'd love to see some documentation on this because I have yet to find many counts that are even remotely close to each other. I've seen everywhere from 16,000 to 650,000. Also, in a nation of 30 million or so, I would think it would be rather noticeable if over 3% of the population was dead. I mean simply holding funerals over there would become an overnight boom business.

I am actually a little speechless right now.
There is no way to learn the art of war other than by practicing it regularly.
Read about Task Force Smith if you want to see what happens after a military guts itself of its veterans and draws down and moth balls all the equipment thinking they will never need them again.

Originally posted by morder1I Our soldiers kill innocent people all day long, we steal the "enemies" oil, minerals, sell their opiates back in our country... The soldiers carry drop guns(ak47s) for when they kill innocents they plant the Ak's with the bodies to justify their murder. Leave DU all over the war zones so the future generations come out all deformed...
Originally posted by Unlimitedpossibilities You seem to be obscuring this fact by stating valid truths about honing skills. Yes you need "actual" experience to become great at something but do you really want to become great at war?
Originally posted by Unlimitedpossibilities To end the circle of hate, there must be a concerted effort to choose to end it. I agree with keeping a domestic military to uphold balance for now, but I will never agree that we should war with other countries, putting innocent lives jeopardy so we can hone our war skills!

It is not called defence if you leave your country to fight in someone else’s country, it is called invasion.
