    For once I agree with Cullion. His words don't represent the entirety of my views on the matter, but this little post is the best I can muster. I feel like refried ****.

    Why did I become a soldier?

    Well, basically I was bored. I'd say I had (and maybe still have) a desire to prove myself, and the desire to see where my breaking point was. I was a really angry, hateful person, too. A few years later, I'm still not so sure I joined for any reason related to patriotism. At this point, I spend my days hunting people that just really need to die, and acting as a buffer between them and normal people is something that I feel good about. Military service has given me peace of mind in a way I never thought I'd have.

    Yeah, pretty much me too. It's like I always say - I did it for the free rifle.

    Think of the narrator's encounter with the psychiatrist in "Alice's Restaurant" except for real.

    Weirdly, now that I'm older and married I've also become oddly sentimental. So much so that being a Police Officer was hard for me. The caliber of asshole you deal with overseas can be so horrific that a plain old US criminal seems like a decent dude.

    Watching a bird go kinetic on a bunch of human traffickers through binocs was possibly the most poignant event of my life.

    Did you masturbate? I would have.

    Right there in my fucking BDUs (and I just dated myself.)

    Sigged.

    Seems to me that the word "terrorist" is the western equivalent for "infidel", it sure gets trhown around a lot.

    And now we hear people talking about collateral casualties with the same lack of concern as the "terrorists" talk about "infidels".

    "It's OK because they are terrorists/infidels anyway".

    Yeah, way to make a point.

    Quit being such a fucking Moro/n. (Ooooo that's so wicked clever of me!)

    That statement isn't particularly cogent. Of course you can't "kill terrorism" any more than you can "boil jogging."

    What you CAN do is destroy an institution. Especially when that organization's stated goal is the killing of everyone with a religious preference that is NOT Al-Wahabi Islam.

    Institutions like, maybe Al-Qaeda? Trust me, you can shoot the **** out of them.

    Kinda like ETA? Or GAL? Perhaps 11-M?

    Lose any loved ones?
