    before i say anything let me say this first, this is a rant :ecouteurs:
    So today i was in class and everyone was listening to a podcast about the army post 9/11. it was just an interviewer team interviewing people working in the navy on a aircraft carrier in the ocean. so everyone that got interviewed were basically just saying what they did and how they liked it. now some of these people were the jet pilots that dropped bombs in Afghanistan and wherever else they were fighting. and one person literally said after being asked what you feel while and after bombing places,
    "I feel no remorse about dropping a bomb on them down below. Its not sadistic. Its just i think its the right thing. someone came into our house and trampled on our land, and to go on their land and absolutely pulverize them makes me feel very warm inside. i think thats great. im just glad i could be part of the team thats out here doing it, and dropping bombs on the bad people. i sleep at night."
    this guy just seems like a typical stuck up jock dude thats a big tuff army guy :lmao: and its really dangerous if this kind of guy is the one doing the bombing in the army. seriously, this guy just sounds like a dick.

    Some soldiers are really fucked up, especially pilots though. Pilots kill huge volumes of people in comparison to foot soldiers but don't ever see or realize the damage they do. There's not a lot of reason for them to change from that line of thought.
    I've actually organized with a vets from Iraq and a lot of them aren't like that. There are actually a lot of infantry who develop radical sentiments while at war. This is especially true for Iraq and Afghanistan because it's becoming more evident to a lot of soldiers that they're there to provide security for contractors (meaning burger king, fitness clubs, imperialist industry, etc). There are definitely folks who go to war for nationalism or even out of the thought that they're helping people but realize it's all for a mythology while they're there.

    But yeah, it really fucking sucks when you know vets who've realized it's all bullshit but then you meet others who are totally brainwashed like that pilot.

    the army is a tool itself for mindless nationalism which capitalists exploits, in denmark the soldiers feel some kind of pride, when they go out and fight for oil and profit, the army recruits foolish people to do their dirty work only a few people gets it and stops being in the army.
