They want me they really want me!!!

Lately every day I have been recieving phone calls emails even snail mail from uncle sams agents looking to get me to re-enlist. They offer cold hard cash promises of college and personal growth for myself. A chance to travel the world and see many new places. A new career and the pride of serving my government.

So I ask you my fine friends with such eagerness to get me back how can I refuse such a generous offer. Especially considering how well the government treats the soldiers I should leap at this once in a lifetime chance right?


With this post I mean no disrespect to the servicemen and women fighting out there. I do however see the futility of sending young americans to their graves in vain. I completely support the troops. I cannot support the war though.

afghanistan, taliban and al qieda are one thing but iraq was illegal and a scam. i would have a hard time supporting such a hardcore christian reformist myself. not much better than the zealots of the middle-east is he. of course i'm not sure where our recently elected "head of state" is headed either...definitely some similarities. harper has banned media coverage of the funerals of our service men and women killed in combat in afghanistan. war is real and the public had a right to honor the dead as well, not be shielded from it because of some political agenda.

Flagg, i know this topic isnt your favourite one.

You did your bit once before. They should learn to look after those they have before they re -enlist.

I abhor dictatorship.

I agree with every word, Flagg. The reasons given by the US and the UK governments for the invasion of Iraq were known to be spurious at the time, and have since been admitted to be wrong. Meanwhile Iraq slips into anarchy and it seems every day another atrocity is reported from that country involving the deaths of scores of civilians and sometimes US and UK soldiers.

Being the father of four who served and two who are still in, I understand what you mean fully.
I too, do not support the war but Lord help the fool around me who disrespect our flag or the uniform worn by one of our brave soldiers.
That is unforgivable.

ROFL Night $8 billion in first quarter profits for exxon mobil and now they are crying over being taxed for it oh BOO fucking HOO.

I hear you DBG do you know they alter the number of servicemen killed over here because if you died in the hospital or on a helicopter it doesn't count wtf is that. People have a right to know just how damaging this war has become.

Thanks DBG I just hope you don't want my ass roasted like they do!!

Phoenix Yes I didn't like the military style to much never been one to deal well with authority they did however take things to far. I am a human being after all not the biggest deal in my life though.

Fit This war is a total waste of lives all over the place the reasons for starting the war have been more or less proven to be malarchy. It become a guerilla warfare zone and we all know how well america fared in vietnam. Its hard to fight when you don't know your enemy.

Rooster I would never look down on the troops and I get angered when people spurn them. It isn't their choice its the politicians and greed mongering corporations that spin the wheel of propoganda its all in the name of capitalism. ~sigh~

"A chance to travel the world and see many new places" eh?
And get blown up doing it. No, not for me either.
Luckily, the government doesn't bother with me. I'm too old.
Yeah, they look for the youngest and freshest meat to send
to every arm pit and rat hole around the world.
Of course, the ones in charge of the mayhem are a buncha rich old farts.
It would be nice to send the people in power (Politicians, corporate big wigs) over there. Let them get blown up.
Ain't gonna happen.
The powers that be, get there by making others do their dirty work.

Ok, my rant is over.

Be proud of what you've done for your country...and be ready to serve when you're comfortable again.
