My damnation of "the military" is of the apparatus and the demons that wield its power.
Like I said....the military is made up of mostly well intentioned people who's efforts are manipulated for various ulterior motives. We have proof
that the US Army, under the direction of Project Paperclip Nazi's, experimented on its own soldiers throughout the 50's and 60's. Likely the
70's, too. And I would not be surprised if it has never stopped, since we have those nice little relics of decades past still (Gulf War Syndrome,
I feel sorry for our soldiers. I am thankful that they love me enough, a total stranger, to be willing to die for me. It is most unfortunate that
there really isn't a need for them to actually have to die for me. Because in reality, they aren't dying for me, they are dying for a bank account.
I appreciate the ones that serve with honor and valor, and understand those that just can't quite measure up (without giving a pass to the true
monsters that kill civilians because they are sociopathic psychos). It is a tough job, being away from your family, sitting in a tent somewhere God
knows where. I would rather they be here, to raise their kids and provide some direction that our country seems to be lacking right now.
I dunno.....its a real messed up situation. I don't like so much of it that it is hard to figure out exactly what I think about it. Other than I
just don't like it.
