    BTW: This isn't meant as a put-down. I'm just curious. I know I wish I was young again.
    soon, in about two years I'll be old enough.

    Enjoy your youth, don't join the military. Just friendly advice.

    This is a waste of time and money. ISIS is too well organized for some ad hoc rabble to go up against, even with American air support. The only way to coordinate air support is to have trained FO's on the ground.

    I would join for something useful and righteous were I required so much.

    I would not join for something like Vietnam.

    Well the House passed it, with a good amount of opposition. There are many questions to be answered, such as what kind of weapons will be given, will they be advanced? What "groups" in the FSA will the arms reach, etc? [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Idiots.
    Apparently they don't watch the ****ing news, otherwise they'd know it was Syrian "rebels" who turned over one US citizen to ISIS, who was later beheaded.

    This is good, because arming militant factions we have a temporary common cause with has never come back to bite us, ever.

    Re: House approves US arms for Syrian rebels

    Okay, seriously, this is the kind of bull**** that brings out the conspiracy theorist in me. I think everyone knows that our arms are either a)going to end up in the hands of very bad people or b)are going to be turned right around and aimed at us by the very people we gave them to. Nobody doesn't know this. Somewhere in the Amazon an undiscovered tribe is watching a television for the first time, is taking in the news, and one of them is saying, "Yeah, this is gonna end badly." So whose bright idea is this? Arms manufacturers, because they know that after this goes down the toilet we're going to sell more arms to more locals to fight the locals we armed, then that second batch of locals are going to be jerks with our weapons, and we're going to repeat the same damn thing over and over again until the arms manufacturers finally has all the money in the world.

    The only groups that i'd support arming in this situation is the Kurds and the Iraqi gov't. Everyone else involved should be considered as an enemy or generally untrustworthy.
