Sitting in front of the computer spewing ignorance
I have many family and friends that either served or is currently serving...
So, you look down on "civilians"? That'll make it easier to make targets out of them when the dissent really kicks off, right?
Bla, bla, bla. Big god-damn hero. I hear the John Rambo theme playing in the distant background. No one cares. The only reason you want this thread closed is because the consensus of truth is unsettling for you. Accept it.
Let's get this straight - you're unwilling to exert energy on faulting those you blindly follow instructions from but you've taken the time to verbally attack civilians online. You've even physically threatened another ATS member.
It's time to look in the mirror, buddy. Ask yourself what side of history are you on. You're beginning to sound like a NWO goon based on your contempt for the general civilian.

A few americans needs to understand that there's not a single country in the world where their 'people in general' likes the USA foreign policies, you probly don't care but its maybe the problem.
A good way to understand the situation is by taking for example Jersey Shore, they all think they are the real deal while in reality 'people in general' laugh about them. In reality Ronny or Snooky are just having issue with their self esteem, they know inside they are loosers but the cameras compensate for their lack of.
Those comment are not necessarily aimed at usa ATS users since we are not ' people in general'.

Maybe, just maybe they'll pull their heads out of their backsides long enough to take the time to look it up and find out that the Marine Corp is actually older than the US Government.
So what? Bottom line is that their a force of evil in the contemporary and present world.
If you want to parade yourself around as an aficionado of that kind of culture then work away; just don't expect the rest of us to be so easily duped by the sad brain washed notions of murderers and cannon fodder. If the marines were half the heroes that folk regard them as, the Federal Reserve wouldn't exist. taking your own advice, If you pulled your head out long enough, you might realize that.
I'm sorry I don't worry about boogeymen and things that go bump in the night anymore, Well not since I was about five years old. Enjoy quivering in the dark.
Where did I mention "boogeymen" or "things that go bump in the dark?"
Are all tenured ATS members this facetious? extra DIV

I will begin by saying all overseas American military bases should be closed down and ALL personnel brought home to actually protect our country at the borders, airports, and sea ports. THEN I could say they are actually protecting me. I don't live in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya.
When I was a teenager there was the draft for Vietnam to worry about. To this day I don't know why ANYONE in their right mind would voluntarily join the military with the threat of being shipped overseas to die in some foreign desert for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. It makes me sick when I see the parents and loved ones of a soldier, who are left behind, crying and trying to convince themselves that the death was so noble and worth it. They are all just trying to rationalize it so they can accept the absurdity of it. I am absolutely 100% sure they would rather have their loved one back with them.
Sometimes I think the government purposely wants a high unemployment rate so that many people feel their only chance for a job is joining the military.
Unfortunately I think most people not only in the military, but in any career area like local police, the FBI, the TSA, rent-a-cop security officers, do it for the rush of the instant authority it brings them. Instead of "serving" the taxpayers like their job is supposed to be, they get off on ordering people around and having people fear them when they pull up on their tail in a police car. They feel a need to feel superior to others.
They are brainwashed into "following the book" and are easily manipulated by their superiors.
I think they would fire on fellow Americans in a minute.

Well the problem is that we've tried this before and it didn't have good results. We left the Nazi's alone and didn't interfere and we eventually had to fight them anyways at a far greater cost than if we had intervened earlier. Same thing with Vietnam. The french could have knocked the VC back had we supplied them with more aid as they were asking for but we decided it wasn't any of our business so left them out there then went in later anyways.
Sometimes trying to prevent a problem is easier than trying to cure it later.
