You don't understand our founders

"I can no longer lie to myself day after day to justify military service when I know the truth. I know full well how immoral all war is and how incompatible my beliefs are with service. I am sure I don't need to explain this part to the DP Community."

Sorry but I have no sympathy for you. War, in and of itself, is a horrible thing but war for actual national defense - not foreign interventions - are sometimes a necessity and those that partake in it are not immoral. It took war to break away from King George of England, that was not immoral it was for liberty. When individuals are subjected to living under a tyrant, either a domestic tyrant or foreign tyrant, they have a human right to try and defend themselves and their country. Our 2nd Amendment was not for hunting or defending against random crime, it was to repeal a tyrannical government...and that is war.

Wake up and smell the coffee junior, you might actually need that training someday.
