Looks like they're trying to appeal to people's self-importance by making it look like their life is going to be this. "You're gonna be such a badass AND You can keep being an anonymous troll, but now you can get paychecks from the government for doing it." Ads for the military shouldn't exist to begin with but definitely shouldn't look like movie trailers when they do

I think they really missed the mark if that shit is supposed to get young people excited to go die in a foreign land for the army.  The military is necessary but every vet I know who has served in this last 20 years warns against it at every turn.

One of the more eye opening things told to me from my buddy, a USMC infantryman, is this: "For the most part, only the idiots stay in the military and they move up the ranks and they're your bosses.  Smart people realize they can make way more money outside so they leave and the military retains people who are too stupid or not driven to make it in the outside world."

Guy was a door kicker in Fallujah, thought he would be a career Marine and 100% drank the Kool aid until he had realizations that his bosses were college grads with no combat experience telling him how to get the job done/endangering them and what did they accomplish?  I'm pretty sure he said his platoon(?) lost more marines to suicide than combat and he looks back and nothing of value was accomplished.

Now he is a huge pacifist, funny how that works.  In high school he couldn't wait to go kill people now... Preaches to steer clear of the Corps. and how you only get one life

The only job I'd want in the airforce is to be be in the nuclear silos in North Dakota and Iowa and shit.

My father was a bomb technician in New York and regularly worked in the sub zero nuclear warehouses. Not to be confused with silos, these warehouses stocked bombs that would be delivered by plane.

He advises against it. He says the job was brutal and the pay was miniscule.

I don't imagine many services jobs are any fun.

I'm sure they gotta scrub the silos and maintain the hydraulic bay doors and shit, but probably just lots of training and maintaining 50 year old equipment that will rot and never be fired.

I think they just stripped the stuff and build new ones not like they need to save funds. :lol: I think there's something like 250-350 abandoned nuke silos in the US.

The most creepy stuff is the contingency of operations/continuity of government plans

Propaganda has a major impact on both wars and the course of world politics. It's had a huge impact on US history, Russian history, Chinese history, you name it. It's for real, you can win wars with propaganda, or stop them from starting in the first place. It's a serious discipline that influences entire populations and is highly effective.

I was a combat engineer in the Marines. It was honestly a waste of my time. I try to forget as much of it as I can. I didn't see combat or anything. It was just a terrible time and everyone was an asshole... and really stupid.

Combatting violence with diplomacy is preferable to combatting it with more violence and violence rarely solves problems in the long run.

I wonder, is it really possible to train someone to become numb to the destruction wreaked on a human body by one of our weapons of mass destruction. Doesn't it have to eat away at part of someone's humanity bit by bit as they press buttons, knowing that innocent lives will be horrifically destroyed as a result.

"A young figure sits still by a pool
He's been stamped "Human Bacon" by some butchery tool..."



Some things just don't ever change.

"Why, why do we suffer each race to believe
That no race has been grander
It seems because through time and space
Though names may change, each face retains the mask it wore".



We seem are destined to continue doing the same shit, we just refine the tools.

They've always been like that. Call of duty was the best thing to happen to military recruiting. And ofc half of Hollywood is just advertising for them.

But tbf military service has always been glamorized when most of it is just dealing with bullshit in house and hanging around. And alot of cleaning.

Before modern mass transit it was advertised as honorable and glorious while most of it was just a shitload of marching.



It was always a scam. Now it's just a scam with high production value.

I have no doubt in my mind that if I were to join up with the ongoing war effort, I would undoubtedly rise through the ranks, shooting up through them like a majestic shooting star, until finally landing in the position of 3 star brigadier troll general.

Check out my latest work - a string of cryptically encoded graems meant to subliminally entice the enemies’ trolls into revealing themselves by deceiving them into believing that a call to action has been issued from one of their own.
