Lol... there's a running joke in the military about how we're all waiting for the "war for cheap oil." At least that war would make sense. Anyway, I think it's much more complicated than you're making it. There are decades of political decision-making that all coalesced to the moment that was 9/11, with mistakes and foolishness on both sides of the isle. A good analysis of history and national security will show that no one radical Muslin or rowdy Texan is to blame for anything.

And luckily in the U.S. the blame is mostly on civilians since you essentially govern our policies. And the CIA for that matter. Ugh... that's a whole other story... please do not associate the military with the CIA.

To each their own, then. You may change, maybe not. Best of luck with everything.

I respectfully disagree (hence... the thread... lawl) but I'm curious if you've developed this opinion further, to be honest.

The thing I tend to keep to myself unless I get in a really heated discussion is that I think 9/11 - while tragic - really sparked some inappropriate reactions from Americans. There are countries who have undergone significantly worse (and sustained) atrocities that never used it as an excuse to perpetuate conflicts or breed contempt for religions/ethnicities in the same way. Civilians need to understand that we're going to get attacked because we have interventionist philosophies - it's part of the risk in our national strategy that we seem to have collectively just accepted (don't get me started). But our reactions to 9/11 have made me wonder a few things about American culture that I think are fundamentally flawed.

I feel even just this kind of questioning is unpopular.


Joins military anyway. lol

I would have more room to talk if I hadn't done the same.

This is very debatable.

Yeah, it's a bad stereotype about the military being all blind patriots... everybody's individual motivations are different.

Care to expand, or are you going to leave it at that? I don't mean to instigate, it just irks me a bit when people say things like this and basically take the cake lol.

Dubstep is redundant and sounds all the same.

I'd be okay with that. Zombies are pretty kickass.
And there's a few people I wouldn't mind waiting to turn. :P


yes, being controlled and stuff like that is the only way for peace.
but true peace is unachieveable. "a place where everyone lives freely and happy in harmony" doesn't, and will not exist. everyone has a different idea of peace, and other people will think that someone's idea isn't peace.

so the only REAL way to achieve peace would to give every single person their own, self-controlled univerese.
but that's impossible. at the moment, and probably will be as long as the human race walks this planet. because personally, i don't think the human race will live for much longer. we'll eventually kill ourselves in biochemical/nuclear war.

Yep, Einstein was right with " know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones"
We're on a path to destroy ourselves, it's almost inevitable at this point. Imagine each country is a boy in high school.
They each want the prettiest girlfriend (Country/Population) yet they take it for granted and treat (population) her horribly in most cases, however some of the guys are good guys and don't (Switzerland, Sweden from what I know of it.)
Then ya got all the jocks (MOST countries) comparing 'package' sizes (military size) and each wanting the newest, fanciest, and 'coolest' 'toys' (Nukes, bombs, stealth planes, stealth helicopters) and are willing to steal from eachother to achieve it.
Of course the richest one seems to be at an advantage, but most of the others will backstab, etc.

We're effed, royally, as a planet.
We were born into what I feel is one of the most messed up societies as a whole.

I want to have hope for the human future, I really do. But with what I see on a global scale, I'm scared.
With our future leaders in America being 10 years old and going to "tween" clubs and acting on a scale of nasty comparable to that of Jersey Shore, I'm terrified.
Not to mention America in general seems HORRIBLY screwed in economic terms as well. We're STRUGGLING to stay afloat. :/

-YOLO was interpreted the wrong way. i believe YOLO was supposed to be different and smarter. ex. "*stupid person YOLO* oh, some guy invited me to go smoke meth with him? well, i better do it, YOLO! *smart person YOLO* oh, some guy invited me to go smoke meth with him? well, YOLO, i better not do it, because if i only live once, i should value the only life i have."

-i am for homosexual activity, but i still eat at chick-fil-a because it tastes great. even if they are donating money they earn to be anti-gay, what could they possibly do? use the money to build some secret holocaust camp for gays and capture them one by one?

-life has no meaning and is supposed to be lived the way you want to live it. be your own boss and live by your own principles.

-no, if you have done bad things in your life you will not be dipped in lava in some place in the afterlife. death is equal as is everything else in the world should be.

-there is no being of godlike heirarchy. none. just science. that's as godlike as it gets.

But where I live it's not. I'm in a small , isolated city that's 100 miles away (at least) from the nearest sushi restaurant or place that sells good ingredients to make it. Most ppl here still think it's solely "raw fish" or that only fruity or snobbish people eat it. Sure, they're ignorant. They're victims of having lived in the same place all their lives. Yes, they should broaden their cultural horizons & I hope they do & I've done my best to help some. But there are none so blind as those who will not see.

"Popular" is relative to one's time & place.



I completely feel your pain. I used to be in the civilian sector, traveling a lot and usually in major cities where sushi is readily available (NYC was my favorite non-Japan stop). Now I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere for about a year and a half and the nearest sushi is about 120 miles away. Likely because of the relative "time and place" you pointed out... Oklahoma, U.S....


Yep. That's the fact Jack.
