just wanted to start a discussion with some of my thoughts on the military. first of all, to be clear the military is more or less a mercenary force of "volunteers" and i hope it stays that way. In my opinion what democrats or the "neo liberals" dont understand is that for alot of people in this country joining the armed forces as a career is their best bet in terms of job stability and salary. how many times have you gone to a fast food restaurant and seen a worthless twenty something year old which will regrettably spend the rest of his life working for a petty hourly wage when at this point he has the opportunity to "make something of himself" by going to Iraq. I have all the respect in the world for servicemen and i dont really think there is a lack of available candidates for deployment its just that too many "wanna be rappers" are too worried about buying $100 shoes then growing some balls and putting a uniform on. i personally would never volunteer myself because i dont have too. as an entrepreneur i give back to the community by providing jobs and paying taxes. I really think that in 2007 we are very close to establishing "world peace". if we could just get more troops to "surge" we could contain militants and establish a safe and peaceful international world market of trade. im not sure what the numbers are in Iraq but with all the degenerates in this country we could easily triple the troop levels and with all the additional numbers the job could get done safer and faster. The war between communism and Capitalism is over. Its not about religion or ethnicity. People just want to make money China doesn't want to take over America they just want economic growth, same thing with Russia... I have traveled the world and i realized everyone just wants to have a nice family and make money not too much to ask. Why are we letting a bunch of "socialists" in caves control world economics when we are so close to having the "free market" move humanity forward. If there is such thing as the NEW WORLD ORDER i want to be on the side that is for advancement and peace.
