The Soldier Myth

Press gangs... brainwashed, oppressed and
psychologically manipulated by the remote
suits and uniforms that fear the stain of
blood on their doughy soft hands...

No seriously... what sane person would be
eager to kill, maim, and destroy?
Let alone succumb to the idea that "killing for
peace" was an actual validation of their actions?

The intense hardship suffered by soldiers in the
theaters of their performances is beyond my
ability to comprehend.
... and there is just nothing macho about digging
latrines, crawling in sewage, or wipping your ass
with an arm stump.

* and don't get dragged down here... this is not a criticism of the soldiers.
The myth of the soldier is not about the people... only of the role.
