@Scout - I actually did join over money issues, thats why you arent taken seriously scout. You make assumptions instead of standing on facts. I grew up on 700 dollars a month for three people in a house that was built before the government made it manditory to inspect houses to insure they were up to code. I couldnt even afford sneakers from anywheres other then Walmart. So yeah just because Ive seen what the military is really like and dont agree with your uninformed views doesnt mean I like the military. I just dont outright demonize them for things that arent real. If you paid ANY attention (your fifteen and in a country where the majority of Americans dont even know their own History so I can totally understand why you seem to find it hard to pay attention in a debate that you start) to what is said youd already know I WAS in the Army, but NOT anymore. I only served for 4 years. Theres only two reasons why I would leave the Army if I like the Military so much after 4 years. Medical or the Army forced me out.
1) I left with an Honorable discharge. I also recieved a GC so I never got into trouble. Which means, I didnt get kicked out.
2) I never recieved any injuries that warranted a medical discharge. I was healthy when I left the Army.
So why would someone (according to you) who loves the military so much leave it?
Maybe because in reality I have my own personal reasons that I dont agree with the Military. Since I know intimately what is wrong with the military and what is right with it. Im in a better position to criticize them then an adolescent that hasnt even gotten through US History classes yet.
@Fallen - Where was the exclamation marks from? Your arguement got shot down so you went after something that had nothing to do with what you were accusing the US of?
Your the one that made the accusations, not me. The burden of proof is on you. You claimed the US only invaded Iraq for the resources. You then linked stats about another country that the US DID NOT INVADE. You ask if I can prove without a reasonable doubt the US didnt invade over fuel? Are you serious? Is your arguement that weak that you wont even show how you magically *KNOW* the US is there for fuel but you think Im stupid enough to go out of my way to disprove your unfounded accusations? Come on. We both know its a weak personal opinion of yours and you cant prove it, what so ever. So just drop it.
I dont need to be thanked, thats not why I went over there. Thats not what Im looking to be. Im no hero, Im no savior. I didnt outright attack you. I just disagreed with your statment of why we were over there. My original statement said that from personal experience I never witnessed anything dealing with Oil. You then responded with an aggressive approach at showing how your opinion of why we were in Iraq was right and I somehow (even though I had firsthand knowledge of the Oil Fields status just a year ago went over your head) didnt know what I was talking about.
