    Re: Marines being surrounded in Iraq?

    Why anyone who has not been brainwashed by government/Neo con propoganda would join the United States military today is beyond me.

    Dying in the middle of nowhere to defend causes that are getting merkier and merkier by the day seems like a very poor career move to me.

    And patriotism? please. Running all over the world and pissing off just about everyone (even with the best of intentions) with the Stars and Stripes on your shoulder seems to be hurting America FAR more then helping it...not to mention getting a lot of it's brave citizens killed in hopeless causes.

    There have been many times that joining the military was patriotic...this ain't one of them. The government (both Bush AND Obama) are putting the military in terrible situations that it has NO CHANCE to win.
    It is not the military that is at fault. It is the pathetic POTUS's that are telling it what to do.

    And it is the fault of the electorate for putting these political losers in the White House.

    What do you believe are the reasons behind these terror attacks?

    In fact the military supported Bush but definitely do not support Obama. Military Times: Mere 15 Percent of Troops Approve of Obama Why would any rational person support Barry Obama?

    Probably a sort of hatred for the great white north. Or even a dislike of sow bellies, lilly whites, that haven't anything more to do than make an issue of German politics. Who can know?

    Occupying their lands, stealing their oil, propping up leaders for our own interests. If other countries tried that in the US, how would you feel?

    We were part of an International peace-keeping force. (the UN)) in Lebanon, not some trainers placed in a war zone by a pathetic excuse for a POTUS.

    Contempt? LOL. Trivialization? Bigger LOL. Like I said, sign up. Go fight. If you can. Our current military and public has done plenty. More than plenty.
    I have no problem handling a dispute, on my own. Unlike you who wish to send others to do it for you. Well not really for you, for a foreign nation that don't give a rats ass about you.
