How is purposefully killing anybody, a good thing? With the exception of killing someone whose trying to kill you or a loved one.
This 'feeling' is not Human. We are compassionate souls. Or at least, we were. We have empathy. And the soldiers who used to defend their land and
family, did it thinking they were doing a just-service.
The wars now don't look right, don't feel right and haven't been 'sold' to us as doing something right.
We infiltrated these countries for what? Why is their country our business? We are hardly the poster-child of a country run right.
Some of these soldiers were hard up to make a living. So the recruiters set up kiosks in their impoverish stricken cities selling this as a viable
option to make a pay check.
These kids don't know why or what they're fighting. Osama and Hussein are (supposedly) dead. What is their justification? Never mind that because
that's too big of a supposition....but how 'bout....why are they so pleased in killing other people? What's with these smiles lately?
Although I'm a bit too young to be a part of this.....I do remember some of my Vietnam vet friends coming home riddled with guilt and shame. They
knew that war was unjustified and they tried everything, not to be recruited.
This is not the impression I am getting with this generation who are short of human killing machines.
