    To fight in the permanent war for oil.



    Trump remembers the hostage situation, one version of it.
    Actually a pretty unique version - he said we should should have wiped them out and taken the oil 40 years ago,.

    Those "kids" could f*ck up someone's shit in a heartbeat.

    They're not consriptees serving against their will, and they weren't drafted. They enlisted to be soldiers, and that's exactly what the want to be doing. They're the most highly-trained, well-equipped, and highly motivated soldiers of any military in the world.

    Ask most anyone who did combat duty in Iraq whether they'd be willing to go back. Their answer would probably surprise you.

    My niece on my wife's side was given an officer's commission when she joined the US Army five years ago. They sent her to college and she is now a doctor with the rank of Major. She just left for her first tour of Afghanistan. Her dad was a mortar man who served two tours of duty Vietnam. He remembers his service fondly and has some pretty good war stories. His brother was a Marine but got wounded by a grenade the first month here was there, and was sent back stateside. He also has some pretty good war stories. I also served four years in the Army and my dad was a paratrooper in WW2.

    The best thing a young person can do is join the US military. The opportunities are unbelievable and the adventure and experience they receive lasts a lifetime.

    Marvelous Mitch McConnell: "My Democratic colleagues should not plough away American unity in some bizarre intramural competition to see who dislikes the President more."

    "Yes, things were peachy in Iran until Ayatollah Khamenei came along! Let's start a war to restore Uganda's culture next.

    I AGREE! Iran is responsible for murdering more than 100 Americans at home EVERY DAY! No, I'm sorry, it's MEXICO that's responsible for 100+ heroin and fentanyl deaths in America every day. Carry on, irrelevant media" - Acerbic Ann Coulter

    I've never had a single problem with the VA. I have however noticed how much better they've gotten since Trump was elected.
