The general public is so naive when it comes to the US military, the majority think that our military adheres to the Geneva convention and does not engage in torture or other hostile acts, give me a break. There is so much classified shit that happens that would blow your mind, its the stuff no one except those involved know about. My only point is the US is not as righteous as most think they are. I knew rangers and recon soldiers, they are the ones that do all of the nasty dirty work that you will never hear about, which is probably a good thing for most because you might think different about the US government, how power hungry and corrupt it really is.
Whoever asked me about being in combat, no I did not go to war but I had many friends that did, and I don't need to go to combat to know what I know. I was in the Army and I did spend time in the field with infantry (I was a medic) and I know how sick and stupid most of those fuckers are.
