Are you a veteran of Vietnam or any other conflict? I am just trying to gain some context on where you are coming from with this statement. Or how you are basing your last statement in particular.
Im not really basing it in particular... Just comparing. Back in the days going to war wasnt really an option, half the wars fought by hand, and it was a real war... Nowadays it is an option, plus our military is spoiled as hell, and got it pretty damn good...

Hey man just made this account to let you know you aren't alone bro. I joined in 05 and was in Ramadi by 06 and Afghanistan later on. As you can tell by my username I was a machine gunner. It sucks man I got addicted to several drugs to try to get my mind off this bull ------ in Afghanistan. They gave me clonazepam while I was still in because I couldn't take being in that hole that was camp lejeune I just about lost it. Funny how those benzos are more addictive than heroin, it is insane. I stopped going to the VA cause they are full of --- and done with their mind altering ssri ---. I am always going to be different than those around me and I have made peace with it. It sucks being different but we have something most people will never have, a warriors mindset with real war fighting experience, real natural authority and leadership. Something like Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers is going to happen to this world and we are going to run this show one day.
Don't worry about it, my family and friends all think I'm crazy too. We are real warriors and leaders which is a threat to their bull authority. We know exactly what happened over there and we didn't get it from the TV so it scares people that we know from direct experience. We have become masters of the OODA loop and they don't even know what that is. We know we were fighting for a few elite rich just to make them more powerful at the expense of the innocent. Not sure about you but most of those doors I kicked in didn't have terrorists behind them but families with the look of terror on their faces. It was hard to face it, but I looked in the mirror and I saw who the real terrorist was. I refuse to be a part of their ---- society, I refuse to believe something is wrong with me because I have empathy. I have pledged my oath now to helping the innocent people of this planet against the global elite and their minions.---- countries, the military, terrorists, the elite and anyone who thinks they deserve more than the human being on the other side of the world because a system they were born into told them they deserve everything. This is the matrix, most people will die defending their reality that was programmed into them since birth, they know no other way to live. I am a Global Guerrilla now, ready to rid the world of this power elite that has been around since the beginning of civilization.

I thought Einstein helped recommend the A Bomb to Roosevelt?
