    I am surprised that the reception station at FT Benning still looks the same.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    He always repeat "I love my country and that's why I want to join the army"...that's alright, but there are thousands of ways to be at the service of your country without joining the army! What made him choose the army and not a politician carreer for example?


    Furthermore, do you think that a boy who is weeping and wants to go home is ready to fight? Look at this pic

    What can a 19 y/o boy do in this situation? Do you really think he is mature enough to react correctly? What if he panicks?! What if he walks on a mine?!

    I don't understand what's wrong with what I said. If you disagree, give arguments.

    I said that

    1) I find it a bit stupid to join the army if the only reason is that you love your country. There are many ways to do something useful for you country, the army is only one of them. The question is "why the army?".

    2) I also think that 19 is really young to go to a battlefield. Not because he can't physically do it, but rather because I don't think that you're mature enough to do that. Maybe 25 would be more appropriate.

    Probably a matter of his skills, opportunities, and values. For instance, unlike you, the pictorial notes that he's not a good student. That rules out a lot of opportunities.

    19 year olds have been fighting wars for thousands of years, Bub. They seem to manage.

    Then it's like the students who choose to study law because they suck at maths!

    There have also been rapes for thousands of years, that doesn't mean that it's a good thing
