Democrats are happy when soldiers commit suicide...means one less Republican vote, plus it feeds into their long-ago fantasies that our troops are a bunch of homicidal psychos.
What an utterly ridiculous thing to say.
I honestly believe you’re right. People say it must be the horrors, but my guess is that today’s horrors of Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. were/are no more than WWI, WWII Korea, or even Viet Nam.
The difference is ROEs, hatred of our military by Democrats (well, they did this during VN, too), and a determined purpose to demoralize and debauch our military.
Frankly, if my son, or daughter, or grand children wanted to join our military, I’d advise them NO.
The military gets volunteers who are patriotic American-Americans, heterosexual and have a Western moral and ethical world view.
The military under a leftist regime, is the opposite of that and is hostile to American-Americans.
It’s probably terrible to end up risking your life for leaders who are your opposite and who don’t mind you dying in preference for the Muslims you are supposed to be fighting in a war. This “war” has been misrepresented to soldiers. They are being treated like social workers in service to the gross and hateful mentality of the Taliban/Muslim Brotherhood. Their politically correct leaders are amoral, delusional idiots.
Then, when they get home, they are harassed by ignorant leftist pigs who name their normal recovery and reintegration period, mental illness, and name them dangerous to society. This is worse than the way soldiers were treated after Nam. At least then the amoral leftist pigs were on the outside of society and you had some normal people to deal with when you got home. Now the leftists run society and they hate Americans - especially soldiers.
