Are any of you in the military or know of someone in the military? If not what do you think of it? Please don't bring up how the military sucks and shouldn't be in iraq. it's not the soilders idea it's the policy makers that send them over there

I disagree with the idea of the military. No having a go at any soldiers or anything. I just personally wouldn't sign up. I don;t want to fight wars, especially if I am not picking them which ones I fight.

Yea and those soldiers, whether or not they knew what they were doing (because it is glorified, and alot of times they have no other choice) still signed up and agreed to do what they do. They signed up with full knowledge that if a war breaks out they would have to go fight it. I don't see people commending garbage men for doing their job.

I also agree with Immortal technique and Michael Moore. The army is made up of mostly poor people. The rich people send them off to die and get the rewards.

True story, the sad part is when non poor people join the military they gain all the benefits, but when poor people do, half the times they are never paid whats owed and come out worse than when they went in.

Than go storm city hall right now, because they are doing more damage to your neighborhood than any foreign country is.

If you wanna be patriotic, you wanna lash out on somebody, go wild out on a cop those are the real people causing you harm.

my best friend since 1st grade joined the Marines a few years back and has been stationed in Korea since then. He's fortunate all he basically has to do is fix computers even though he signed up for an open contract. I personally dont think I'd ever join though. My understanding is he signed up (according to him) for the job/ life experience, decent pay and free schooling. I would not call him a very patriotic person or anything though, and really we have very similar minds - both non religious too - so it kinda caught me offguard. He seems to enjoy it though.

I'm a U.S. Marine and I'm very involved in the war efforts. I won't say that I agree with any of it, or that I agree with the president's very existance, but I'm affiliated. I won't state any personal opinions within this thread right now cause I don't see a need to. But I will say that any and every "country" requires a military. Fortunately for us in the U.S., for now, it's all voluntary. This is what makes it so powerful right now.

Some rich people join the military to defend what they possess.
Some rich people join the military for its professional conditioning, corporate america looks at military experience as an extra check in the box for their executives.
A lot of caucasians join the military for self pride.
A lot of poor people (like me) joined the military because it was the most gainful employment opportunity.
The reasons very, you'd be surprised.
I know several people who had never seen a Black person "In real life" until they joined the military.
I can go on and on, but I gotta go.

Take it easy
Peace

im in the military and i enjoy it.. thoroughly!! the military has given me alot. alot more than i had before i joined.

some people got nothin but trash talk about the military... and rightfully so, since its their right. i mean it aint the perfect job... but show me one that is.

as far as the war and shit... i dont support it. but i gotta do my job. so when i went to iraq i focused on doing some good. im not alone in my efforts.... unfortunately that stuff doesnt get televised... everyone only sees the negativity. there is some good to come of this...

Anybody in the military?????


is the military in anybody ?That's like asking a college student if education is in her/him. Of couses, from the way that I walk to the way that I talk. Just like born invincible said, "The military has given me a lot." But to add to that we've earned every cent, every entitlement, and every benefit. Believe me they'll get it out of you.

That first comment is in the fine print of your contract. I know I've been shot up with some weird stuff. I swear until the day I die that that anthrax caused some serious memory loss for me.

I understand the second as well, but I'ma get mines while the getting is good.

I've signed the dotted line now, so I'ma get that good training. I'm an expert with my fire arms and military strategy.

I feel you though. I wouldn't try to recruit anyone else in, but I'ma get what I can while I'm still here.

Regardless of the content, thanks for the comments.

Take it easy

I feel you, I'm sure you guys joined the military with nothing but good intentions.

But the battlefront isn't in Iraq, and you signing your contract with them is like, when shit hits the fan over here and they call you back to fight your own people it's not gonna be pretty. America is going to be divided into two sets of people soon, it's gonna be like a crazier 2nd civil war. Alot of people think theres gonna be a 3rd World War, I think theres gonna be another Civil War.

It's not done by arms now it's faught in the minds of the mentally dead. I'm not talking about some Rzarecta stuff, I'm talking about arming men with the knowledge of what's really going on in this society. People are ready to fight and die. I don't know if I'm speaking of the same war that you are but it is time for a change.
