    Thats my point US did to Iraq exactly what Iraq did to Kuwait, so there is your casus belli.

    I dont understand this point.

    Im sorry has the US eradicated crime and drugs? Because last time i check you also have organized crime.

    Im sorry i find murdering people in their own homes to be a despicable act i guess you get some sort of talk during recruiting in order to justify it.

    Wow, this is one of the biggest scumbag posts/string of posts I've seen in some time.

    You doesn't care at all about US soldiers killing hordes of Middle Eastern civilians and combatants alike, and probably openly root for it, but think we need to cry crocodile tears anytime some self-interested person (or worse some dip shit wannabe patriot) dies fighting an illegal for-profit invasion that you would support wholeheartedly no matter how pointless or brutal it was.

    Also, being a service member (a Canadian one at that lol) doesn't change the fact that you're an intellectually lazy coward and a useful idiot to boot. That you realized you could better yourself more easily by taking a public position that exists on top of the fears and nationalist sympathies of your countrymen instead of actually testing your stuff on the open market yields the opposite inference.

    You realized you were worth more as cannon fodder than you were as a person left to their own devices in the market. The fact that your had a warm body was worth more than your actual brain and heart.

    No, he didn't. You keep insisting that he did because you realize what a piece of shit you are for saying so.

    Or you are just so stupid that you can't escape the skew of your own dogma.

    And then you whine and moan like a little bitch about him mischaracterizing your position (which was, again, just undetailed tribalist dog shit).



    Full disclosure, gents: I'm not a serviceman. I just happened upon this exchange, if you let your fraternal instincts allow you to side with Tropodan, a moron of huge proportions, you're a piece of shit yourself.

    O look the neighborhood commie scumbag showed up to defend his fellow psychophant.

    My actions and contributions to society speak for themselves, I'm sure more than yours. So you can go ahead and vomit out your rhetoric and throw haymakers at everyone on the internet, I'll stick to positively influencing the world in real life. People like you think you're a good person because you have the "right opinion" on things. Try actually doing something that positively effects the world.

    What the hell is a psychophant?

    Do you mean sycophant? If you did, then you clearly (and unsurprisingly) don't seem to know what that word means or how it's spelled.
    That's embarrassing.

    Also, Rod and I don't agree on much.

    Cheerleading the deaths of innocent people because you're too dumb to be critical of your own community? Patting yourself on the back for being so average that you needed to join the Canadian army to gain self-respect? Being so incapable of independent thought that you have to be offended for Americans and pay lip service to our military men?

    LOL, yeah, your actions speak for themselves. And they scream "just another self-deluded useful idiot to be cannon fodder in the dustbin of history!"

    I help people in need and fight for those who struggle to fight for themselves.

    You wallow in mediocrity and get your rocks off on nationalist reduction to distract from said mediocrity.

    Having actually been to the countries in question since 04, and still going back. This is one of the most common fallacys, how many Afghans and Iraqis have you asked about our involvement? Were you there in 03 when Iraqis civilians cheered for our arrival? How about 12 Wren they cried at our departure? In Afghanistan when we literally freed tortured person's from the Taliban? You ever see a girl get an opportunity to read for the first time? Because her government restricted her ability to do so? I know of what ISIS did in Iraq and Syria and it's every bit as bad as the media portrayed it but even worse. When it's settled they're going to write books about the shit.

    So you can talk the politics or that soldiers are dumb and fuck them when they die. Which no one has ever said to my face by the way but I read it here constantly.. I've seen the stuff there, is it perfect, no. Is there actual progress? Yes. It's war there's mistakes and horrendous things. I think many in retrospect agree that Iraq 03 was a mistake however if the insurgency perpetrated heavily by Iran had not happened many would be singing a separate tune. Not 100% blaming Iran because our planning was inadequate as well.

    Anyways I see some door has been opened and now this sticked thread has turned into a place to come attack military members, and seemingly demand a defense. Which I admittedly just did so I'm out. Good job you win last place I actually gave a fuck about on SD and I gotta deal with this.

    That was a great write up my friend. Unfortunately those who have not served or done a tour of duty in Iraq or Afghanistan will never understand. The military was an exceptional experience for me, a positive experience -- it defines who I am as a person. In some ways I wish I could go back and do it again - with more experience this time.

    One of the most sickening things I witnessed in that culture is how grown men like to rape young boys. A culture that is very backwards and barbaric. Stoning people to death. Cutting limbs off for committing a crime. Women are treated like dogs. ...and somehow, in the middle of this, we Americans become the bad guys.

    @Mark Cutting, thanks for the 'likes'. Just my 2 cents.

    Ive had a similar career to you but on the British side, but went private sector in 2010. I concur the best examples of 'success' were at ground level. The bigger picture never worked out, but we can say we did what we could where we could. Looking back though the flaws of what we encountered bother me greatly. I came away quite disillusioned and quite disheartened by it all to be honest. Which fuckwits like the poster you responded to really cant and dont understand, no matter how much they read about it.

    Not sure what you mean by ART. Rhymes with FART. Are you talking about U.S. Air Force guys assigned to U.S. Army/Marine units as forward observers when it comes to aerial airstrikes?

    Air Force reserve technicians. You hold a GS position while serving in the air reserves. I was looking into it because of a job someone told me to apply for. Definitely passing that one up.

    What job is it for? If it's something up your alley, definitely don't pass it by. Let me tell you that being able to retire after 20 years (AD anyways) with medical benefits and pay is a sweet deal!

    It was an education specialist job. I’d be working out of the education office as a gs11.

    The thing is that even though you’re a GS, you have to where your uniform everyday. And I would still have to buy my time back from being active. The job sounds good but I really like my job now, even though it pays less.
