Wars cannot be fought with weak open-handed punches and slap-boxes. Wars are won by decisive action, and the leadership of men and women who are willing to do whatever is necessary to a) kill as many of the sons of bitches as possible, b) destroy the enemy's will to even look a gun, and c) triumph over all. You punch with a steady closed fist, not a limp-wristed attempt at a slap.

Wars are won by killing significantly more enemies than you create.
When do plan to enlist?

I don't think that is fair. He has said nothing to suggest he isn't serious that I know of, anyway.

Or do just find it impossible to believe that anyone would volunteer given the abuse and misuse our military is currently experiencing?
Thanks from imaginethat and coke

Chosen a branch? I would suggest that the Navy is a good choice. They have hot food, hot water, warm beds, interesting places to go and see and cute uniforms. Additionally, if you get close enough to the enemy to need a gun a baseball bat will do as well as a firearm. It is a really nice package. Stay away from the USAF...top heavy because of pilots and really tight for enlisted promotions. You would end up 1 or 2 pay grades lower than any other service.
Thanks from coke

So sending in troops from other countries like the USA, England, may be the only option left to fight and defeat ISIS. But Obama said that there will be no USA boots on the ground. So whose folly will it be: Bush's or Obama's?

And Obama had better think about the mass slaughter of the Iraqi civilians. Does the ISIS leader Al-Baghdadi really advocate such a terrible thing like that?
And when are YOU going to enlist ??? How many of YOUR CHILDREN are you willing to sacrifice to a country where the people WILL NOT FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES ???

Why should WE involve ourselves in a conflict when they won't ????

You are free to hold whatever opinion you choose.

Agreed. Promotions in the AF for enlisted me is very slow. Plus, if you don't make it a career you are likely to learn an employable skill. No one gave the slightest shit how far I could throw a fragmentation grenade when I got out of the Marines and went looking for a job.

Like an old WWII vet told me. Yep, you can get killed in the Navy or Air Force, but if you do you'll die with a full belly and clean clothes on. Not true for a poor old mud Marine.
Thanks from coke
