And If I have to watch one more video of a load of soldiers killing someone else and then cheering and high fiving each other, I'm going to be sick......
These actions should be carried out with a sombre disposition... unfortunately these "grunts" are incapable of independant thought, which is drilled out of them in training... dangerous in my opinion...

Some of you military bashers need to put your heads on straight.
Fact: Politicians and Lawmakers and by extension the people that elected them are responsible for the wars.
the soldiers that fight in them do what is asked of them and are not capable starting a war;

Being in the military is a job. It is by choice and if you choose to get shot at good for you because you also signed up to shoot people. There is more than one way to protect your country but you chose to shoot people. which is fine i have no problem with it. I did not join the military because I know they are just pawns.

I have tried to express myself in such terms, but often the words have failed me.
It's hard to explain your three decades of service to someone who never has served, ya know? They just don't understand.
Thank you for your words, I think that you may have made my life easier.edit on 24-6-2012 by TDawgRex because: (no reason given)
30 years of service requires no explanation. I'm about to graduate AIT with my aviation wings and I dont feel the need to explain myself to anyone.. You shouldn't either.
And if nobody joined the military, then you wouldn't be free today to be posting on the internet. And if nobody joined the military, then you wouldn't be free to worship (or not) as you wish. And if nobody joined the military, then you'd be either dead or enslaved by someone else's military and they wouldn't be treating you well at all. The FACT is that there are entities in the world - both government and ideologically orientated - that want the free Western world not to be free. They want to impose their rule of law or religion over you. that's just the truth. Troop-bashers ignorantly forget the FACT that this is real. Having a strong military is a deterant to those who wish to impose themselves on us and to destroy our society and our freedoms. That's the truth. Deal with it.

I bring visual proof and corroborating links etc of what I speak....
Afghanistan isn't as dire as many here would have you believe (I acknowledge it isn't all peaches in cream either] Having said that, Personally I'd prefer we weren't there. I have two Nephews stationed in the Stan. My son served in Iraq, I was against that invasion from the start but supported the troops. People don't like that?
Too Damned bad!
What do you bring to the discussion?

Plans are for a new world order government government by price explosions caused by a money obessed culture (whose horns are more disgusting than those.) No spiritual virtues, but thanks for the pictures of progress.

In comparison, I will admit that another American politician who I actually have quite a lot of respect for, comparitively speaking, is Dick Cheney. The reason why, is because comparitively speaking at least, while Dick was a deeply and thoroughly evil human being, he was open about it. You couldn't really look at Dick and not know what you were getting. He was a psychopath, and there was absolutely no hiding it.
