    Conscientious objectors among the troops

    Advertisements
    Watch the whole video...

    I met a few of these guys today.
    Truth be told, I really support them.
    Sold a lie, and then sent to destroy.

    I'm going out for beers with a few of them tonight, the stories haven't gotten any better it seems since the last time I was over there.

    I understand going for profit, we know what we're there for.
    Not sure I understand going for any other reason.

    Sad...

    Generally speaking, I support conscientious objectors, as well. I will watch the video when I have more time to sit back and watch the whole thing at once.

    I support their right to object, but I don't support the idiocy of them signing up for service if they do.


    I'd like to actually talk to these guys, the video was off-putting; looks like cheap propaganda.

    Talking to them over several pitchers really got in my head.
    I've been over there, and yea, its bad. But it was bad for profit, and there were rules.

    Some of these guys, who I am not 100% sure weren't BS'ing me, told some real horror show stories.

    If it is true, I am taking their cases.
    If it isn't, then that's bad pool.

    Thanks. Congratulations on cooking up a little one!

    I am sitting down trying to verify some stuff now. Not sure how far I am going to get due to several laws in my way. Pesky laws, always in the way, like pedestrians.

    It was pretty grizzly though. Photos, video that wasn't confiscated. Dark end of the street man. I am no longer wondering why so many are coming home so goofed out.

    Yeah. We did a LOT of research before the hubs joined up...and his MOS choice was a direct result of it. Not pretty, some of that...

    Dissenters of the war ? Sure I support them for they have that right . Sold a bulk of goods and join the military ? Not so sure I agree on that. When I think of military I think of war and killing and not pretty .

    I am sorry , you joined , you cant be that naive to believe that the course of events are going to match your agenda ....

    There are some conscientious objectors among the troops who have had their views and opinions CHANGE since joining the military. Ones who sign up with great intentions, do research, and truly believe what they are signing up for, but have some event happen to change their minds, or just grow older and have a different opinion....
