You're making a huge leap based on dislike for the meat of his article I suspect.
True enough by why is he saying what he says?
We all know war is sh*t, we all know soldiers don't start wars, we all know soldiers are humans who love and are loved, we all know that soldiers aren't politicians, we all know soldiers risk their limbs and lives to protect us and the people of the nations they are sent to defend or rebuild.
So when it comes to saying it's lip service he's up his azz because the respect is there in our hearts if not always on our lips.
So what's his point other than self-promotion?
If you want to be rotten to the Corp be rotten to the Corp but why the fluff and bullsh*t claiming people don't care enough?
Change your scenario from a first person iteration of what I'm going to do with "I suggest that all first borns be strangled"... Now, take that statement and publish it with the MSM.
A little different now, isn't it
