    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

    I can agree with that.

    While you may want to believe that there was something special about the part of the military you were in, so does everyone else in the military. What it comes down to, though, is that you're all defending a country. You do it in different ways and with different equipment. Some of you are in more immediate personal danger than others. It doesn't matter. Being willing to kill and enjoying killing are two entirely different things.

    I'm not saying you don't know anything about "the infantry", I'm saying that no matter who you are or what your job is, enjoying murder makes you a sociopath.

    See what I did there? I said murder, not "killing". Calling it killing makes it seem like some clean act. Murder is what it is. You're killing a man. We allow it because it's war (for some reason) but it's still murder.

    Each MOS and unit can be special, but that's not what I'm talking about. Every aspect of the Infantry is different than other MOS's and units. PT, discipline, NCO's, everything weapon related, humor, etc. are all different in the infantry (not to speak of the way every other MOS (18 series not included) behaves in combat). Ask a POG what he thinks about infantry NCO's. He'll probably tell you he thinks they're all assholes. The way people act in the Infantry compared to POG units is very different.


    This is somewhat topical.

    Weaver was also in the Army

    he doesn't boast about how many dudes he killed, instead he tends to mention how sometimes he wakes up trying to strangle his wife because he's still dealing with the shit he did and saw

    but then by taranis' standards he probably wasn't a real man either

    That post was very nice bit pretty much irrelevant to the topic at hand, which is mentality about murder.

    Upon further consideration, I think the only people who are enthusiastic about murder in the military are a.) the people who have never done it and b.) the people who have and who have to convince themselves that it wasn't a big deal by joking about it.

    I know this turned really serious and that I won't win this argument, I just find it offensive that you believe the military are all such horrible people that they WANT to kill.

    Edit: Posted to Taranis, not you Dru. Your post was good and you know what is up.

    Hmmm.

    I was talking about how the mentality of killing is different in the Infantry than in POG land. Irrelevant? No. How an infantryman feels about killing is different than how a POG feels. So not the whole military. I didn't even say everyone in the infantry felt like that.

    Killing is not fundamentally evil. Killing is an action with no context. It's not correct to label things as good or evil without context.

    So what you're saying is "the infantry (or a portion of them) enjoy killing, but you can't contradict me by citing examples from other branches because the infantry are special and unique"

    Killing a person in self defense is not murder. Killing somebody because you don't like them is murder. Killing somebody in combat who is wearing the uniform of an opposing army is not murder. To be sure, it is not a good thing. But it is often necessary. ( kind of. I think you get the general idea of what I am trying to say. )

    I've heard of some units in the early years of OIF getting theirs as soon as their battalion took contact. When I was there the MND-N and MND-B commanders wouldn't sign off on a 4187 (unless it's a different form used in country, I don't remember) unless it was accompanied by 2 sworn statements describing the events that warranted the award. So everyone everyone that got theirs when I was in country got it legitimately. It's another story with CAB's though.

    Honestly I haven't been paying attention to it. I just saw the CIB and thought I'd throw in the old "didja ern it?" joke/remark.

    Umm... I read a little. Right, not all killing is murder, but I think if you go into an area where you know dudes are going to try to kill you and you go in there only to kill dudes that are going to try to kill you, like you're not there shipping goods or whatever then you're probably a murderer. If you're actually going there of your own free will and not some sort of government operation I mean.

    Also if you're sailing into an area that you don't really know, picking a deadly fight with dudes that have been doing this their whole life while you sat around trading stocks or whatever then you're probably an idiot.

    I dunno, I think killing in self defense is still murder and I think the legal definition says the same, though I may be mistaken. To my knowledge, many states don't even allow the murder in self defense argument.

    I think we just have different definitions of what qualifies as murder.

    Also how is war not "killing someone you don't like"? I mean, I get what you're saying and I don't really expect an answer (I'm going to bed now, so whatever). I can totally understand an argument for why war isn't murder, I just think that it eventually boils down to the same thing and we should call it what it is.

    But this is not D&D so I don't know if it is appropriate to debate that here. I'm willing to concede that by your definition, war isn't murder. However, I use a different definition where murder basically equals "knowingly and intentionally killing another person", so war falls under that. Does that seem fair?

    unfortunately, "to your knowledge" is pretty much the opposite of "what is actually true"

    so, maybe you should do some research before you open your mouth about things you don't know about

    1. Law. the killing of another human being under conditions specifically covered in law. In the U.S., special statutory definitions include murder committed with malice aforethought, characterized by deliberation or premeditation or occurring during the commission of another serious crime, as robbery or arson (first-degree murder), and murder by intent but without deliberation or premeditation (second-degree murder).
    2. Slang. something extremely difficult or perilous: That final exam was murder!
    3. a group or flock of crows.

    If you go by your definition, fair enough. But I believe your definition is flawed. I think you underestimate how widely self defense is allowed re: killing. There are laws about excessive force, and there are gray areas here and there. However, in general, if somebody is attempting to harm/kill you and in the act of defending yourself you kill them, it is not murder.

    As far as war not killing someone you don't like.. I was saying just going out and killing somebody that pissed you off. That is obviously murder, premeditated and all that. In war, sure you might not like the other guys, but that kind of misses the point of what I was trying to say. Your main purpose is generally serving your country. Not killing another person, unless you are fucked up e.g Taranis. A lot of this goes into some pretty gray areas.

    Also is anyone else catching the fact that he is throwing out acronyms left and right to make it look like he knows more than he does?

    No that's actually an army thing. They speak in acronyms, it took me like 2 years to get over it. Though I don't know MND-N/B are.

    Yeah it is a thing, I was in AFROTC. However, it being a thing in the army and him using it does not mean he has actually served at all. It is entirely possible that he is using that to make us think that he is in the Army.

    Multi National Division- North
    Multi National Division-Baghdad

    Ah, yeah. I don't think they had those when I was in. I was in during the first invasion. Back when you could shoot dudes for driving at your checkpoint too fast and not get in trouble for it.

    Yeah I was there during the surge. You can still do that and the media will still bitch about it.

    This is why I have done my best to continue this conversation without stating that I had been in the Army. I can't conclusive prove that I was in the Army over the internet. I said this a few pages back. I can post pictures of myself in Iraq all day long, but that would prove nothing.

    Is that something to brag about?
