Why Enlist?

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.

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.
