Does sighing up for the military mean you lay down your life for any battle whether you agree with it or not?

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

No debating no argueing, where are the librals. Oh you guys aint no fun. where are the bleeding hearts? I thought this would really get an angry response. Not that I'm looking for trouble.

How could you fight? It's right there in your contract that you must do just that.

thats the whole idea

you are giving your life to the U.S government for the amount of time you enlist for. you must fight in any conflict whether you belive in it or not.

if you have to doubt what you are fighting a battle for, then you need to fill your fanny pack full of your shit and run home to your democrat mommie. military has no place for you. in the corps. your ass would get a beat down for even thinking shit like that. oorah....

If you do not stand behind our troops...please stand in front of them....

No questions asked

I participated in many shit storms I did not like. When we landed in Somalia, CNN was there waiting for us. We were used like a infomercial. Every time a hot spot started up, we were sent as a show of force. Bunch of shit, but thats what we signed on for. Sometimes you fight the good fight, sometimes you are a pawn.
Look at the prison scandel in Iraq. These privates were using specific CIA techniques to humiliate intergatees. Do you really think these National guard troops were smart enough to do this. You think they were coached? But the officers do no time. The CIA was not involved? A specialist E-4 took the fall with a few E-2's getting Article 15's. Thats the game. But we all are here to risk our lifes and reputations to perform the heavy lifting of the United States.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do

Like they told us,

Crap rolls down hill. The little guy always gets it in the end. When you sign up and if you think you will never have to go to war, that is just plain stupid. Like telling someone that does not like blood he will be fine working as doctor in the ER. It is part of the job.
