This was a good video.
While i do not support the -reasons- we go to war, I do not blame this on the troops. Humans are capable of some aweful things when put into a
situation such as this. All the people who talk about them being 'baby killers' and stuff, have zero idea what its like to be in war. Hell, i dont
even know. My father retired from the navy last year, 27 years service? He was in the gulf war. I never really asked him much more about his job (too
busy pressuring me to join the military haha).
Some people are messed up. But when you go to war. Things change. Humans adapt to survive. And the troops suffer the consequences of that, while the
higher ups sit in a kushy tent, or, a ship, or, not even in the same country. Sitting behind a desk. There is no sense blaming them. They were put in
that situation. They have to make a living, they have to support a family at home. When there are NO JOBS around, what do you do? Enlist.
Then you have the kids who have no idea what they are getting into, what the actual reality is before its too late.
Soldiers out there.. become mentally unstable very quick. Hence why PTSD and Depression and all sorts of mental illness the servicemen/women come back
with. Hence why the suicide rates among soldiers are also sky high. People are not monsters. Situations make them monsters.
Friends with you neighbor one month. Killing him for his supplies after the bombs start dropping.
Heartfelt video, and i thank our veterans for fighting for our freedoms. No matter what the underlying reasons for 'wars' these days, these people
deserve our respect for sacrificing their sanity and their lives, even if the reasons are lies. All the more reason to end the wars, and stop the
