Be all you can Be.....
An army of one....

Lately the Military seems to be employing their own mind control people upon to young adults of America. It isn't as broad as psychic control, or using some form of advanced mind altering radio waves, its as simple as tricking people and dumbing down their senses.


It's really sick to watch some of these recruitment commercials they have flying around the airways like crazy. They all say that its the best you can be if you join, or that you'll be a highly esteemed person in there. They even go so low as to try to lure teenagers into it by promoting that they pay alittle bit of your college after you leave the service. They have recruitment drones hurl phonecalls and pamplets at seniors in high school, and march around schools like theyre looking for fresh meat. I'm not saying the armed forces are bad, but I'm saying that theyre preying upon the suseptiable. Not only that, they show a false image of what its like in the army. They don't show you getting blown up by a car bomb, and sweeping away enemies with grenades through mosques, or being some generals pawn in a big game of chess. No they use a subdle mind control to trick people into coming into their forces.

Video Games

Now with the aid of Video games, which help numb out voilence, the mind control of the military can be pushed further. The military has been putting out tons of games now, made by then, in the effort to not only numb the minds of potential recruits, but to help employee their mind control upon people. Games like Full Spectrum Warior and America's Army, made by the military, try to promote realistic warfare scenarios and what its like being in the army. With games like this, it helps confuse people into thinking that its not so bad, that they cant die, or it would be fun.

The Military has a new weapon my friends, it's not a new jet, or a new tank; it's a new weapon that is able to tap into a near endless supply of potential meat to through into the front lines: The Media

I don't want to burst your bubble, but the military has always done tactics like that. Ever heard of bait and switch? The military always tells recuits that they are going to get all this training, and they ask the potential recruit which kind of training they want and it sounds great and exciting. Recruit signs the contract without reading the fine print and knowing the law. And it's shafted by the US military again.

The military also gets 4/5ths of the intelligence spending in the budget. What do we get from it? 911 is what we get. WMDs in Iraq that were never there is what we get. If the military has your back, heaven help you.

I like this one

I have America's Army on my comp right now but I don't feel the urge to sign up. However it is fun to frag people with a realistic M203 at super long ranges

hmm.. I always thought his hat was red white and blue.....

Anyway, i know what you mean but propaganda is what the military does. If they showed the truth, how else would they get thousands of teenagers to throw their life away and most likely die before even being legal drinking age. I think it is rediculous but I'm not going to lie. The propaganda gets to me sometimes, and during that cheesy patriotic music and funny voice-over, I do have this weird patriot feeling. Then I smack myself and it's gone. But it is not something to take lightly.

It's not just propaganda anymore though. Propaganda was in World War I & II where you had short movie clips about the doughboys fighting off the enemy and such. Lately it's gotten alot farther. In my highschool, every day we have soldiers patrolling the cafeteria and hallways, going up to you and talking on and on about the military. I have recruiters calling me trying to tell me how much better I will excell in life if I join the army. You have Military made video games with the secrt agenda to train potential soldiers and also numb ones mind againt voilence and even try to show people that they should join. It's gone far beyond just propaganda as they start invading your personal space through "mind controlling" video games, and confrontations with them in person or via the phone.

The military has been launching this major campaign to recruit people, especially ages 18-21 into the armed forces. I tolerate the ads and flyers because this way we don't have to get to the point of a draft or required service.

I'd like to hear some responses from people that caved in to the gov't campaign and joined the amred forces. Can you offer a perspective on why you decided to and how much of an effect the propaganda campaign had on you.

Didn't join, and they won't take me (just tell them you've done '___' a couple times, lol).

Here's the scoop from my friends, though... One friend joined the Navy, we'll call him A for anonomity. A went to the Navy because he was only 19 and already tired of feeling like he was going nowhere in life. Christ, he hadn't even tried to tell you the truth! He kept seeing these Navy commercials about travelling the world, blah blah blah. Needless to say, he's out of the military and selling medical equipment. Wow... and guess what! He only got to see ocean for the most part! Yep, I guess they didn't lie... he got to see parts of the world he never saw before.

Another joined the Army to get away from drugs and stuff... Now, instead of shooting himself up, he's shooting others up and he's stayed in the army because he gets to play with guns and tanks.

Almost all my friends that have joined the military joined because they saw the 'propaganda' commercials and figured a crappy job in the military was better than a crappy job in fast food. None of them really even tried to make something of themselves, just worked the same job they had in high school for about half a year and joined the military.

Another one of my friends joined and got stuck in a tiny office answering the phone for the base hospital, which only rang about 3 times a day. He tried to commit suicide because of that crap job (which he got through the 'switch and bait' technique).

So, there's a couple of the bad stories for ya. It's sad, but the commercials really do make you feel like you are nothing if you aren't military personnel. Plus, most of the military personnel around here will talk down to you when they realize you have never been military. Alot of them act as if they are the ones who keep our city going, not the city government or the mechanics or engineers. Pisses me off to no end when I run into alot of these meat shields with that attitude. I just want to hurt them and show them, once again, that they are only human and no better than the guy sleeping under the bridge, or you, or me for that matter.

Aaah, yes... the newest one I just saw (probably been out for awhile)

"...because rocket science is more fun when you actually have rockets." - NAVY

Of course they don't show what that rocket does to all the humans inside a Mosque when it hits. I've been too close to death, too many times, and the damage of any weapon is quite a bit more real for me... even ropes and knives (I hung myself when I was a kid... on accident, about shot myself in the face with a .22, went through a widshield, fell about 30+ ft from a tree, darn near blew myself up several times... the list goes on... not to mention stabbing myself in the knee with an xacto, ripping my thumb off, etc, lol!). I don't want to kill anybody that doesn't want to kill me

All the military recruiters have called me and I've rejected all of them. I really had the urge to be in the Air Force, but not anymore, I've lost interest in joining the service period. As much as I would, want to serve my country, I just don't want to put my life on the line.
