Most Americans who view US troops with disdain are also some of the most skeptical about the actions of our federal government. I wonder if this
demonization by the federal government will change people’s perception of US military vets.
I think you're confusing two separate issues and opinions here.
People are not critical of serving military or vets, they are critical of the actions of governments, and by extension the actions of those who
blindly follow without morality.
I am always critical of the military (UK, US and any other nation too) because all the recent wars we have seen have been based on lies, stupidity,
ignorance and immorality.
We're attacking nations based on BS, for profit. There is no denying this when you see the evidence used to go to war, the profits made by
corporations invested in war, and the access gained to favorable oil deals. Even the actions of military on the ground are proof of the motives -
securing oil fields while hospitals and schools are destroyed...
I don't see why people are so surprised by this. Many of those vets are now finding that they were lied to. They lost a decade or two of their lives
fighting for a collective of corporations. They return home, traumatized and having lost years of their lives and numerous people they loved, and they
get little in return for their sacrifice. Of course the DHS would see them as a threat - they CREATED that threat!
This is the fallout from the Bush government, and Obama too, systematically using their citizens as cannon fodder, a money making machine, a private
army of the corporate monster.
Armies should be used to defend, not attack. The USA and UK uses their military for monetary gain. They sacrifice lives for the profits of their
buddies, and people are waking up to it. Not least those who have lost so much believing they were serving their country when in actual fact they were
serving Wall St.
