    Was it difficult to get away clean doing a steady 15mph on a dirt road?

    If cops started catching up to I would just run away. I can run fast.

    Yeah driving around as bait isn't even close to asking them to hijack you

    Stupid ass

    Did you see what she was wearing? She was totally asking to get raped. That's entrapment, it wasn't his fault.

    Try to think for like two seconds.

    Defender if you can't see the difference between actively trying to get them to hijack you so you can shoot them and somebody saying "it's her fault she was raped"

    You are a broken broken man

    OK, Wiggin. I see that difference. However, my purpose is to point out that leaving something in a state where it can be attacked, even if you do it on purpose, doesn't justify someone else attacking it.

    EDIT: That also means that you are still justified in defending against it. It doesn't matter that you're "looking for a fight" because you're not actually starting the fight. It's dumb, yeah, but it's not unethical.

    That thing about how Calvin and Hobbes grew up to be Jack and Tyler is surprisingly well written

    Not on the same level as the Pokemon coma essay but still well done

    How would you say it compares to that one essay that analyzes MGS2?

    Really I mean we could kill all of those and it would be cool with me. The amount of culling I would like to see would be ridiculous.

    Taranis, the difference here is that Defender is kidding, at least somewhat

    Whereas you are whole-heartedly endorsing murder

    there's a huge difference between relieving stress like that while under fire and talking among other servicemen who shared the experience with you versus telling strangers you want to hunt and kill pirates

    again, you consistently demonstrate that you are unable to grasp moral nuances that many teenagers have figured out

    you guys still going with this?

    Taranis just go join the army already

    hopefully someone will work out that you're the superior killing machine they need and make you a badass commando

    can't wait for the movie based on your life:

    TARANIS: SAWS AND WRECKS

    So watching a JDAM demolish a house that had numerous hajj in it is "relieving stress"? Seriously? How many people feel remorse because they lit up someone that was trying to kill them and their comrades? Feeling elated when snuff out the life of someone that's trying to kill you and your comrades is common. To say that infantrymen who reup time and again don't like doing their job is a fucking joke. I'm not trying to say that they enjoy killing though, I'm trying to say that the experience of combat isn't altogether terrible like most civilians believe. You can't have an all volunteer force if infantrymen don't reup. What of SF units? Some SF guys stay in theater for years on end (they get RnR, not sure how much but that's not the same as time back in the states). I have several friends that tried to stay in country when the unit was redeploying to the states. PSG turned them down. In combat you hunt and kill the enemy. Pirates are no better than terrorists.

    Honestly if there's a better job out there for me where I get paid to get shot at and shoot back, I'll take it.

    i really don't want to be surrounded by people like that. the military isn't a fucking football team.

    Druhim can't acknowledge the fact that not everyone is the same and the truth might not necessary be palatable to the rest of society so some people put on a front. That most people of decades past felt how they did, is not surprising times change. The Romans had their Coliseum and their gladiators. We have our video games and violent movies. The way most infantrymen feel about combat shouldn't be all that surprising.

    Best analogy for the Infantry is a football team + a fraternity. Day to day life in garrison is much like the Office.

    POG's don't think like I do as far as I know. So if that's the sort of MOS you want go for it.

    I have a friend who is a Marine and I have talked to him about pretty much this exact topic.

    None of them, at least he and the people he knows in the Marines, want to kill anyone. They would be much happier if they never had to kill a man, and even happier if they never had to be shot at. They joined the military and do what they do because they believe it is their duty to help protect their country and to make sure the rest of us do not have to do what they do.

    They're not there because they want to kill people. They do not enjoy killing people. Sure, maybe some guys in the military enjoy killing. You know what they're called? Sociopaths.

    But is he in the Infantry? The Infantry is completely different than the rest of the Army. That's the army though, I'm assuming it's the same everywhere. Generation Kill was pretty spot on and I wasn't in the Marines.

    what fucking difference does it make, you tool

    people in any other division are allowed to have souls and be normal people but when you're in the infantry it's all about cheering when you take out insurgents and then hitting the showers?

    if you enjoy soldiering and being a soldier, that's fine

    i think its a totally different thing to not fundamentally understand that even if it was the lesser of two evils, even if it was for a good cause, killing is fundamentally evil and so is war
