Seriously?

How would you explain US economic, military, and humanitarian aid to foreign countries? How would you explain US military installations around the world? How would you explain 7 decades of foreign intervention? This IS an EMPIRE of olive branches and arrows; it can be denied the same way one can deny the rising and setting sun.

The brainwashing you've undergone in basic is working without a hiccup, and so filled with PATRIOTISM you consider it offensive when some weak, ineffectual, non-combatant criticizes your beloved military. Well buddy, I don't love your military where servicemen are used as pawns by the sinister machinations of a well-born few. I've seen how it destroys people with good intentions and sets their life upon despair and destruction.

OUR NATIONAL DEFENSE SHOULD START AT THE OCEANS AND END AT THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
