    Red face F*** the Troops

    Why do people think that hired mercenaries (which is exactly what The Troops are) are so sacred that we are not allowed to point out bad things about them? Everywhere you go, people and the media worshipping them just because they are a Hired Murderer of the state. Apparently it makes you a "traitor" if you talk about their murderous psychopathic killing sprees around the globe in the name of "democracy".

    The West has been indoctrinated to worship a gang of people whose "job" it is to go to the other side of the world and blow up, rape, maim and kill people! Heaven forbid that you criticize the people, individuals, who do that!

    Imagine if they did it in your actual country? Chatting to a bloke in a bar and you tell him there is a bad bloke in the next town. The response that he gets a war plane out, strafes the town for a month, kills a few hundred civilians who happen to be in the street, sends out troops in armed vehicles kicking down doors in the burbs and dragging people like you out to torture in some place a thousand miles away, oh and and got the bad guy! No one would say "thanks pal". You would say "you're a fucking lunatic! Stop doing that!". Not in your back yard but if its a load of brown people on the other side of the world.. then that's fine?

    As for the "veterans" and people opining "but my son is a marine how can you disrespect him" blah blah well maybe you should have taught your son Morality instead of blindly obeying the most evil people in the world, politicians, military leaders, unCivil Servents and the Elite when they send you and your kids to be mercenaries on the other side of the world.

    "But they are fighting for out freedom" - Horseshit. Does anyone actually think that an Afghan chicken farmer is going to enslave your country?

    If the troops were interested protecting the freedoms and rights of the people they would be invading Washington DC, London, Paris, and all these other capitals of the countries that start this shit. So Fuck the Troops.

    It's OK though, as long as traitors such as Julian Assange and Ed Snowden are not allowed to show us what actually goes on, aka the Truth, then everything is fine in noddyland.

    To a certain extent yes, especially in the US (and as sabang notes above), but I think you'll find some of our more - umm - senior members here are Vietnam veterans and they may tell you that they weren't treated well all the time by their own.

    IMHO this veteran hero worship bullsh1te heightened as a result of how the troops were treated when they came home from Vietnam. And it’s gotten totally out of hand. Criticizing the military is and should be an important part of how the civil population keeps the military in their place. Bugs the fukc out of me to see veterans asking for and taking advantage of every little hand out available to them.

    Can’t deny though, with the exception of teaching in Thailand for two years, my entire adult life I’ve made a living off the Military Industrial Complex. Really don’t much care what anybody thinks about that. As long as the US government follows through on its promise(s) I’m good.

    Sk criticises, invites criticism and at the end of the day sees his own position - can't be more equal than that.

    But on a more serious note. Assuming you are living and voting in a democracy, of course you can criticize the military. Happens all the time even here in Thailand.

    However, you might consider not voting for the kunts who send troops all over the world to kill folks who as you rightly point out are no threat at all to your nations security.

    Military folks train and do what your governments tell them to do.

    Agree, this whole hero thing is out of hand but been going on for thousands of years. Reckon we humans need them.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    None - all political parties exist to push and ultimately violently force one group of peoples views and opinions on another group. They all suck, and they are all run by psychotic power crazed pieces of excrement without exception. But that's a different thread.

At what point does putting on a squiggly patterned trouser and jacket set makes it morally acceptable for a human being to bomb someone else? "oh he's just following orders... we salute his service". No, fuck your service. Get some god damn morals and call these psychotic bastards out for what they are. No one with an ounce of humanity could be "paid" and allow themselves to be called "employed" to murder people. There's a massive difference between picking up a gun and defending your physical home than what "the brave military" do. Brave? Sat on a ship 200 miles away blowing apart a street just because some other psychopath tells them to?

    Armed militias work nicely for some. Real heroes they be indeed.

    If no one was brought up morally corrupt enough to become a member of the "military", they would have no people to send out around the world to kill for them.

    Who was talking about a militia? Your house does not need an armed militia to protect it I assume?

    Perhaps, that's not the case of most of them, they just do not see any other choice of livelihood for themselves... (didn't Michael Moore speak about it in one of his film?)

    Sid if it wasn't for the military you could well be speaking German now,or perhaps even Japanese.

    The Military are at times needed,and those guys who protect us should be respected,the majority are just normal people who don't rape and Pillage
