|Why do you continuously attempt to redirect, rather than respond to my questions and answers? You are beginning to sound as if you are running for U.S. political office .

1. Have YOU enllisted, and if not, why not?
2. Ask the same question of each and every politician.
3. Ask the same question again of each of the children of every politician.
Over 95% ...
I was enlisted in the early 90s, luckily the only conflict I saw was the last part of the L.A. riots. I would not enlist now to enter an illegal war. When it was only Afghanistan, after 9-11, I actually considered re-enlisting.... but I didn't like the idea of following Bush's orders. Luckily my dislike and hesitation kept me from making a huge mistake.
Politicians are often cowards. They are fully willing to risk the lives of other parent's children, while protecting their own. There are some exceptions whose children are serving right now (very few), but it is often the biggest warmongerers that have: a) never served or b) served in limited capacity (national guard or reserves pre-1990).
Unfortunetly, it is often the poor who fight the wars.

Even the Nazis could have taken lessons from these murderous baby killing cretins.
BTW The Nazis said the same thing i.e. they were only following orders. But the powers to be still hanged them!
Put away the propaganda for a moment and trully look at the implecation of your words. If what you say is true, why would a great nations like China sit idly back and do business with the U.S.. Why would the peace loving nations of the world not bring charges forward in the world court?
Some of the moves in the past few years have concerned me, as I am an avid student of history. Many of the political moves are reminiscent of pre WWII Germany, but the majority of American soldiers do not have the blind devotion necessary to commit those levels of attrocities. Of the cases that have occured, soldiers often came forward and reported the incidents.... but leaders covered them up. The fault lies with the officers in charge and the men who committed the attrocities. There is no need to try to ascribe their actions to the entirety of the U.S. military.
