The things your government hide from you.


Sigh... So just like every country yours paints itself in a nice light. I won't bother wasting time educating you, as the means are there for you to do so yourself. Just be smarter about what you say in the future. It's pretty disrespectful to other countries you know.


Ha...I never said my country was pure, thanks for the offer but back at school I had history education. I am just loyal to my country, sorry if my beliefs upset you.


Your from the UK and your bashing the U.S. Lololol your country has committed scores of atrocities around the world far more than the U.S. ever has.


Especially in the Usa, we violated your women, killed your innocent and burned your buildings. I haven't done much study on the red coats.


We also kicked you out


With the help of France hahaha

Regardless of the intentions of the command, anyone who risks their life honorably in service deserves to be treated as a hero, to make up for the ones who cannot. Notice the word honorably. And that goes also for all veterans, especially those with PTSD. Veterans served with the willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice, and to treat them without the utmost respect would be a massive disgrace to them.

Sometimes the army can be used to support (supplies like food or medical attation or just make a mess)

Yes in many cases they do end up in bad events and sometimes go agianst the people.
If you go higher up you could find more people trained to do better and would earn more respect (special forces, navy etc)
But the special forces are just super humans lol... they are som amazing from time to time.

Genearly there is alot of in the "lower" parts of the army that does things out of greed and maybe don't defend the people as they should do or as much...

When a army can become a family
sometimes there is no avioding of killing innocent civis in wars (really if someone runned wild and into the heat)
if done it because of selfish reasons or for "fun" then yeah.. ugh

I have buddies in the military so I may be a bit biased here but I got little respect for the military and there love of bucking up on new tech to kill people with. My friends has told me stories about his experience in boot camp and how they train soldiers in to effectively lose there empathy and how the command looks the other way when soldiers fight attack each other telling them to "deal with there own problems". Its a system that encourages people to become heartless killers.

Well thats true everywhere you are getting teached to atleast deal with things yourself, and maybe have some more confidence sometimes joing the army will help you and then you helping others or being like you said turned into to heartless people, crazy with power etc.

I spent a lot of time on the flight deck, a place where teamwork and cooperation are required. Someone doesn't have their head screwed on straight, a lot of people can die.
