My facebook friend, who is in the army, is pissed about this picture and attached a long comment to it about how he is risking his life to protect our freedoms and this man should be grateful etc, etc.

I'm really on the fence about it. Especially since this friend is a black male. I can see both sides but I'm sure trying to explain the guy-in-the-picture's stance to anyone in the military would be like talking to a brickwall.

I've had discussions with my bestfriend (who is in the air-force) about how I'm not completely sure what freedoms our troops overseas are defending and its more likely they are being used as political pawns. I try to have these discussions in the most respectful way possible because I know how strongly people feel about these type of things. I really don't understand military pride and sometimes I wish I were more patriotic. But I feel like in order to be that I would have to pretend to be willfully ignorant to whats really going on.


What yall think about this kind of thing?

I would never be in the military. America treats us worse than dogs and you want me to fight and risk my life for you? FOH.

The part I am most confused about is the common "They/We are fighting for your freedoms!".

Who is endangering my freedoms?

Always wondered. and exactly what are the troops 'winning'?
Seems to me like people/countries do not like nor respect the US any more than they did before 'freedoms' were being fought for. Never got it.

War is stupid. Everybody loses.

it's too simplistic but

freedoms = stable standard of living

but before you "meh" you should have a clear understanding of how life is without the conveniences we take for granted

i admire our troops.
they are as much culpable for american wrong-doings as americans sitting on the couch.
the taxes we all pay buy the guns and bullets. they don't set policy. people just feel good on their own high horse.
