Yes that is what I mean by effective. That is what war is about after all and you've kind of proved my point by referencing the Nazi's. You must
follow orders to be effective and if you have people that are allowed to question orders and pick and choose what actions they want to take you will
not have an army that is effective at killing.
Therein lies the problem, Kro32. Humanity has been indoctrinated with this notion that we have to kill to solve problems. We shouldn't need humans
who are "effective at killing." When countries of the world evolve enough to understand that war has not worked on this planet--it has only caused
grief, pain, and destruction--then we won't need to have brainwashed men and women who act on command like a bunch of God damned robots and who are
absolved of the responsibility of putting value on human life.
By allowing themselves to be used as a pawn for the military, these troops are allowing our leaders to scar them forever. Our soldiers are the ones
that have to live with the guilt of killing other human beings.....not our politicians....not the war profiteers. Why do our troops put themselves in
this position....especially when time and time again, we see that the government fails to take proper care of these vets after the fact?
In my opinion, any American who signs up for the military at this stage in the game, considering the past decade of lies our government has told to
get us into war, will be viewed by me as a murderer. I'm sorry. This thread prompts me to say this because, in my opinion, it is completely
ignorant to sign up for the military these days, knowing you're going to likely see battle, without having done any research into why you're going
to be asked to kill another human being.
Apparently, the government has successfully convinced many young people that the patriotic thing to do is sign up for the military, regardless of why
they might be used. Patriotism is standing up for the people of America and protecting them! Patriotism does not mean being BLIND to government
