It's only to get them to join, once there in it is too late to realize the recruitment video was mostly just window dressing and the real world hit's
I would not be too bothered about a group of choreographed Chinese or an angry Russian lad who looks like he just found out his girl is cheating with
is former best mate but yes that US video is pretty damned awful.
But even over in Blighty our Recruitment videos have changed over time and have gone too woke these days.
2016 (before it went woke)
2018 (not army the British Marines are NAVY but this is better than the Army videos in my book)
2021 (A SAD state of Affairs when even we have fallen to this)
Here are some more Royal Marines ad's.

It's by design. TPTB want to bring us down to knock us off our high horse. They've been working on policies and economy, and they've been
systematically been working on deteriorating our culture. Now it's spilling into our military. Our military is the only thing keeping us in the
position of power we have left on the world stage.

Why do we want to be anything like china or russia?
How about we stop trying to be involved in war.
I have the greatest respect for Conscientious objectors but you know MOST of them are actually men whom are NOT afraid of a fight they simply refuse
to on grounds of there belief's and moral codes.
Other than them until the world as a whole is at peace nations will ALWAYS have to be ready and able to fight, you only have the freedom to have the
belief you have because men fought and died for that freedom.
I understand the sentiment and wish we could as a world lay down our arm's, turn our spears and swords into ploughshares but sadly we as a species
are often our own worst enemy, army's and protectors will always be necessary and to protect sometimes they will have to go very far away as part of
tactical strategy's which may often be incomprehensible to us, sadly though it boils down to our leaders, if we have good leaders they will use these
ability's the way they are intended to protect and keep free, if we have bad leaders they will abuse the power at there disposal.
Remember foreign strategy is often in aid of allies and allies are necessary so that we stand together against common threats, an enemy wants to
divide because alone a twig snaps more easily but a bundle of twigs is far harder to snap.
It's a lot more complex than that but that is the best I can explain the way I see it.

I never joined and in hindsight it would have probably been a good thing if I had. I could have used the moral balancing and direction.
Had I been required to serve, I would have simply claimed I had bad feet much like a charlatan so many here praise and worship on a daily basis
