Re: SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
The ultimate con is convincing kids and there families that being a soldier is just another job. Bullshit! It's about killing people and violence, it's as simple as that.

Until people understand this, they will never be free. This madness has to stop...

Re: SOLDIERS ARE NOT HEROES THEY ARE WORKING STIFFS
I am an American. And, I served in the military. I wasn't a hero then and our soldiers now ARE NOT HEROES. They are simply going to "work" every day and getting paid to do their "job". That is it. Soldiers are doing NOTHING to "protect our freedoms" here in the USA. It's all bullshit.bump
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25009119


Hell yea! I am in the military and I agree. I was young and unawake when I joined. Unfortunately , I am getting deployed to Afghanistan. To defend what? Nothing. I am getting out in 2015. That's when my contract is up.

My brother deployed last year and regretted it. He said they were told to not question authority or the higher ups will be mad. He said they were getting paid to get blowned up. I agree. The military is not defending anything. Only thing we do that is useful is help people who homes have been destroyed by hurricanes and disasters. I live in Louisiana.

This thread is boring now. The worst troll attempt ever.

And actual soldiers/marines/airmen/sailors don't think of themselves as heroes.

You will never hear anyone that served call themselves a hero. (that kid you mentioned was not in, if he joined he would not be calling himself a hero. That's a maturity thing)

It's outside entities that do this, like the MSN.

Your rational applies to everyone: firemen, paramedics, doctors etc. This is lame.

So all in all, really lame troll post.

They are no more a HERO than the people flipping burgers for a living.

Nobody is saying being a soldier isn't COURAGEOUS. Working at a job consistently and honestly and working your way up IS ALSO COURAGEOUS.

Being a soldier is just having another job. That's it. Nothing more needs to be said.

The statement "nor had" is a misrepresentation. You cannot rest on the moral laurels of the past. It 'is what it is' today, not under cover of military tradition. The military is now transparently exploited by th elite just as government, education, currency, religion, and all the other institutions of faith are.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1165448


I see your point; but the public at large has an abstract obligation; where the formal mandate; the oath; the obligation, rests with those in the public trust. This trust has been derrilect by at best negligence and at worst purposeful corruption. 'You (not personal)' are deffering the responsibility, if you serve, figuratively, to justify your personal culture of comfort and safety.

I am not referring to bravery in combat, I am referring to the lack of 'watching', or knowing the events that transpire that introduce the threat.

You are correct about the responsibility being all of ours; and the people's negligence as well. But you cannot disown the obligation to act. And i am not referring to you personally; just those that serve and "play stupid" or say "dont blame me" or "just follow orders". That makes you a DIRECT party to the evil; the peopl, an INDIRECT party... all are guilty.
