The US picks and chooses its enemies very carefully.
Iraq, for instance, had the world's third largest standing army. Yet they were woefully inadequate when compared with the US war machine.
Not only does beating up on the little guy make America look tough, it sends a very strong message to the rest of the world. The disparity is
striking. The third largest taken out as if it weren't but a thing.
Hell, we won't even FIGHT unless we have a 3:1 advantage. That is SOP across the board.
And yeah, they target underage kids. Lots of underage kids SIGN UP. I knew several when I was in basic training. They have to get their parents to
sign a waiver allowing them to join.
Not only is this illegal, but I feel that those parents should do a little jail-time also.
Young minds are easily impressionable. We need to be careful the messages we send them.
But hey, I guess the military looks at it from the perspective that these kids are less likely to question the increasingly illegal "lawful" orders
handed down the pipe.
What better way to "fill the ranks"...
