Personal opinion.... it's all programmed BS!
I find it quite distasteful all this crap labeling anyone in uniform as a "Hero" all the time. To me, it's more heroic to refuse to go kill people
who are in no position to harm us at all, on the say so of a bunch of sharp suited shysters in power. There is also nothing heroic about getting
killed or maimed for life acting as the government's hired muscle.
There is nothing patriotic about supporting those in uniform, it's all programming for the masses. After all, nobody wants to be seen as being
"unpatriotic".... do they?
I have also heard the argument that the troops perhaps don't agree with the reasons behind being sent off to fight in a far off place, but that they
have no choice. More BS reasoning, of course they have a choice!
The idea that they are fighting for our safety and freedom is just more BS fed to us by the government and media in carefully managed PR campaigns.
You only have to look at what the governments are doing with their mass surveillance campaigns, profiling and massive buildup of government agencies
and the powers they have, to realise that Johnny goat herder 5000 miles away is no threat to my safety and freedoms, but my own government and it's
hired enforcers are!
Bit of a ramble there! So, back to putting uniformed people on pedestals. In short, it's all just controlled thinking on a mass scale. Don't get
me wrong, I wish them no harm at all, but at the same time I cannot support what they do and want them all home safely with their families, rather
than sitting in a crappy hole being shot at by angry natives.
