← Fault Lines - Religion in the military

Maddawg the level of societies ratio of military members varies across the world and history - therefore it's not some kind of balance in genetics. Sparta, 100% military. Iroquois 0%. Also the US tends to glorify military service more then many other countries. I can not drive 1 mile where I live without seeing some kind of "Join the *insert armed service here*" advertisement.

"So who's the idiot?"
Did someone call you an idiot? Personally I think participating in internationally illegal, profit-motivated, contrived threat level, wars - that attempt to force economic and/or social policy through bullets and bombs, is well 'not rational' to say the least...
