Why would the US military put resources into such frivolity as Stars Earn Stripes?
They are trying to disguise the basic fact of the military — why people enlist.
- It is not to defend the USA. No country has attacked since the 1940s.
- It is not for the pay, $2 an hour.
- It is not for the flexible short hours.
- It is not for the personal freedom.
- It is not for the vacation-like locales.
- It is not for the back-door draft.
They enlist because they like killing people, mostly civilians and children. They like torturing and sometimes raping with almost no chance of going to jail for it. They enlist to bully.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
