I understand the draw to serve in the military. I hold the utmost respect for those who choose to do so. Even if they have no other option and just end up in the military, I still have respect for those individuals.
What I don't have respect for are "regimes" and administrations that resort to violence and domination in order to assert their own belief system and agenda on others. What has worked for one group of people is not always necessarily going to work for others.
That's all I have to say today :)
