Go back half a millennium and more, the leaders of a country were expected to be actually in any wars, sword in hand.


I think that has great merit as a rule for governance.

You want a war, Fat Kim? Donald?

Ok, here's a sword, a horse, and a field. Let us know how you get on.



Of course,  nowadays it's unusual to have national leaders who have served.


I am beginning to sound like Frank1....

Frank 1 is too busy trying to get a band of people to believe in a Monarchy form of Government for the U.S.  Wink Grin

He wants King George all over again Grin

I get that.  I do not know what it was like to serve in a conscript military.  There is a difference between giving up freedoms to serve and having them taken from you.  Thank you for your service!


It wasn't the conscription to which I objected, it was the needless war.  And if we go to war with NK, it will be because of two petulant toddlers (Kim Jong Un and the Donald) chest bumping in the school yard.  An even worse reason than Viet Nam.  Bushy II's reason was he wanted to be a war president.  Also worse than Viet Nam, but not by much.

And I get the "we're fighting for each other" drift.  But if the fighting was started for a shitty reason? 

Kind of reminds me of a quote I heard during the height of Iraq.  "99% (or some such) of our forces are engaged in force protection."  IOW, they're protecting themselves.  Well, heck, if that's the mission, just come home!

And if the mission sucks, DON'T SEND AMERICANS IN HARM'S WAY just so they can "fight for each other."

Kim Jong Un and the Donald are essentially the same person.  The only difference is the Donald is hindered by a constitution.  They are both petulant, chest-thumping, impulsive, narcissistic sociopaths.

(Actually, serving in a conscript military has a lot of pluses if you have to serve.  Of course, that would be the ONLY reason you have to serve.)

Funny how certain posters' concern over the military is based on the party occupying the white house.

I am assuming... I tend to anthropomorphize the trolls... it doesn't always work.

Incoming CC!!!



I think Seawolf was in the navy.

Generally they don't dig holes when under fire, for technical reasons associated with a thing called 'sinking'.
