For those who haven't had the pleasure of standing before a representative of whatever Armed Service you've just signed the contract for, let me share with you a brief moment of that experience.

Please raise your right hand...

I (state your name) do solemnly swear to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies FOREIGN OR DOMESTIC.

This means if your name is Timothy McVeigh, and you are an American who has joined a militia and you attack the U.S. You have just one an all inclusive tour of the receiving end of whatever means the government wishes to retaliate.

If you are Osama humps a llama, then you also receive the same tour.
What if you have to defend the constitution by going agist our own leaders? Would that be a domestic threat?

Actually, since the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military, he would call the shots. With that being said, the only way for him/her to be removed would be a coup, and that won't happen in this country.

Besides, based on our system, the most you have to wait is 8 years, and fortunately for the Democratic/Socialist party, you have less than 2 till her majesty Hillarious Rotten Clit is in office.

An oath to defend the constitution is clearly not an oath of unconditional allegiance to a supreme leader. I think you are mixing it up with fascism. If there is fraud in another election there might be a coup. The professionals in all branches of government seem to be the only ones who know what is going on, although they are content that Americans are finally waking up.

First off...you can't be illegal and join the military. You have to have valid paperwork. And second...don't talk $hit about the military if you've never served. I've been deployed to the gulf 3 times. So unless you have the balls to swear an oath, pick up a gun, and defend our country, don't disrespect the military.


since when am i disrespecting or talking sh*t about the millitary? i'm always the one that sticks up for the millitary against all these weak, snotty, spoiled college kids. dont come after me, i'm on your side.


Your disrespect is bolded above.[/b]


that was directed at those who make the decision to outsource, not the millitary in general.

No... it is you that is "damn wrong"....

Casimir Pulaski was a mercenary who is now honored as the "father of American cavalry", the Hessians & Scotch/Irish mercenaries fought with the North in the Civil War.

Now they just call it "coalition forces"...


after the status we assumed after WWII, my reaction was proper for the USA using (or even worse needing to use) mercenaries.

Agreed...

If you've never personally served, you don't know what it's like. You don't.
When you serve back-to-back deployments in hot-zones, maybe I'll respect your opinion a little more.
