“slink around and set bombs to kill young men and women who think they are defending the country.”
They’re over 18, as you said, which means they should know the basics of the Constitution, and they swore an oath to uphold it. If they go against the citizens to strip us of our rights, they should know damn well what they are doing, and they’ll deserve no sympathy, no matter how young they are.
They will still be mostly the children of conservatives and think they are doing the right thing. You know during the Civil War, both sides thought they were right while they were killing their brothers.
Both my wife and I served in the military and my older son wants to join the Marines. It’s a sad thing to contemplate.
