The Military - a necessary evil?
Posted 6/18/12
If we didn't have the military, we wouldn't have Full Metal Jacket. And a world without Full Metal Jacket is like a world without Morgan Freeman. It just ain't right.

Do you think all the technological advancements in the past century had anything to do with two World Wars?

I wouldn't call militaries evil, in themselves. They can be used for evil purposes though, corrupted by evil people, etc. I certainly do not agree with everything they do, but you can't claim they don't have a usefulness as well. I just wish they weren't needed.

Well... The Allied forces stopped the genocide of the Jews during WWII.


Basic world history- above most of our heads.


That's why the nice TV networks try to make it fun. Go watch Band of Brothers.

No of course not. War can only bring destruction and ruin to the world. If you think anything can be created in this sadistic excuse for "Civilized men" you are sadly mistaken.

War is better than a massacre.

In reply to your comment to underlock, consider duct tape, synthetic rubber, radar, modern computers, and rockets, just some of the shit made for WW2. Not that I'm encouraging war, just saying it's ignorant to say that absolutely no advances were made. It's actually ridiculous how much scientific thought is put seemingly exclusively during war time :/

Cops are enough...
We can give the attackers each a flower and they will know that we are peaceful and go home since they already killed all the police. Remember, FREEDOM Is never free! Its paid for in blood.

The police in the United States are akin to an occupying army. They're armed with military grade weapons and vehicles.

Food for thought.
Would you take a knife to a gun fight? The police are in an arms race with the bad guys.

It's necessary, though I wouldn't call it evil.

I wondered if you were just stupid or being very sarcastic, but I needed to kill some time. Had fun :).

I would suggest further reflection and further reading on our county's military lineage. War is an inevitable consequence of the human condition.
