>>23353711 I don't think they're edgy. I just think a lot of them are dumb shit rednecks.
Not because joining the military makes you a dumb shit redneck... but rather because they recruit a lot of dumb shit rednecks.
And try as they might, it's hard to train the dumb shit redneck out of every single one.
As they say, you can take the kid out of the trailer park, but you can't take the dumb shit redneck out of trailer park... but the hundreds of thousands of dollars in training and indoctrination is only effective at taking the trailer park out of the dumb shit redneck about half the time.
>>23353711 >edgy >home boy is actually posing with a corpse At some point you cross the line between teenage Hot Topic rewards member to psychotic asshole, and this is it. Also, despite how it may seem, the military goes to great lengths to rid themselves of "edgy" kids who want to kill people. Why? Because it's a fucking nightmare having them in service and a Pvt. Pyle situation just waiting to happen. Tell people in the military you want to kill somebody and you will find yourself VERY quickly being reprimanded and out processed. Especially in combat arms where you could do something stupid and make a huge embarrassment out of yourself for the whole military.
A lot of soldiers are in the military because it's the only job they can get. You'll see a lot of disgraceful redneck/ghetto trash. Many serve because they have the sense to do that instead of running with a gang.
>>23353711 Stop kidding yourself. They give them rifles, armor, and ammo for a reason. They are called riflemen, machine gunners, and mortarmen for a reason. You know why? It's because they kill people, and that is a very big part of their job.
So what if he killed some dirty raghead and pissed on him? If you had to deal with them shooting at you and trying to blow you up you'd do the same shit because no one can be a super serious dynamic operator all the time.
The less soldiers pity the enemy the better, I would rather them cut off the sandnigger's head and put them on humvee mounted spikes than not have it in them to pull the trigger when need be.
No, but a lot of them, especially combat MOSs are desensitized. Either the Army does it to them, or they do it to themselves.
Hang around a couple soldiers, especially on a deployment, and it's all "Hajji's this" and "sandniggers that." It's a coping mechanism; when they can create a complete "Other" group by dehumanizing the opposition, they don't have to really deal with the fact that actual living human beings, just like them and their buddies, are trying to kill them. And vice versa.
>>23353758 White trash live in trailer parks, whereas rednecks typically live innawoods. The classical perception of White Trash is generally that of "White Nigger" in the south, in that they are perceived as shiftless, amoral, and generally a menace. Whereas Rednecks are generally just seen as ignorant rubes.
(It's kind of ironic because the largely Scots-Irish, Irish, and Scottish ancestors of the modern Hillbilly were perceived in the same way as "Niggers" by the English in the colonial era many of them came to this country, so much so that calling someone Scottish was equivalent to calling someone a Nigger, more or less.)
>"Take this gun and kill that guy, you are defending your nation!" >Kills guy >"You are a sick psychopath!"
If you have ever been to combat, you would understand. Those people they fight aren't worthy of being human, they are savages. If someone blew up your friend with an IED, you are telling me you wouldn't take pride in defiling his corpse and skullfucking him? Because I would.
>>23354043 >calling someone scottish was the equivalent of nigger
No it wasn't you dumb fuck, Irish was the insult. The only racial insult commonly used against Scots was Highlander due to the fact that a large number of them lived north of the Grampian mountains and had still not yet had the cultural and economic enlightenment well into the 19th century.
>>23353711 Imagine if you spent months of your time living in a desert shithole where the threat of death from an unseen enemy is essentially omnipresent. Maybe when you finally got one of the guys, the psychological need to reassert power and control over the situation might result in you doing something "edgy" like this.
Taking photos like that are the fastest way to get yourself under investigation, and subsequently drummed out. No military likes shit like this being circulated; its bad for publicity, its bad for the goals of the operation locally, and its bad with support of cause back home.
Many soldiers tend to develop a kind of black humour simply because that is how the job is. With guys who take their job professionally it usually stops there, but as ever idiots can take it too far.
>>23354150 Those people they fight are humans who are fighting for their country, against and aggressive invading force.
Your guys are fighting for the petro-dollar. Media sells it to dumbfucks as "freedom", "democracy" and "humanitarian" shit.
I'd bomb the fuck out of US troops if they'd ever invade my country illegally. War on Terror is the biggest pile of horseshit and not a just cause for war and invasion. Especially if its a country that had nothing to do with it.
You dumb cunts go around and fight the "BAD MUSLIMS TERRORIST OPFOR BADGUY KEBAB"-guys and destabilize all the countries you go into. The civies there are left with fucking nothing but rubble.
I'd like to see someone wipe that shit-eating grin from that ignorant cunts face.
>>23354408 >the Taliban aren't genuinely evil people who throw acid into women's faces, cut off little girls noses and account for 75% of civilian casualties in Afghanistan >the Taliban didn't commit horrific jus cogens violations including human slavery and mass murder >most Taliban leaders aren't wanted by the Hague for crimes against humanity >the Taliban aren't the result of the Pakistani government wanting a proxy state to their North >Afghans have any sense of nationalism beyond tribal loyalties
I wish I lived in your world. It would be easier to understand.
I'd be willing to wager that the amount of civilians wrongfully tortured, killed, and imprisoned without trial is now less than before we invaded (not counting civilians hurt by ieds, and other insurgent devices).
You guys realize how goddamn stupid you look debating shit you aren't even qualified with experience to debate? Especially you pretentious preachy terds. It's the equivalent to /k/ommandos listening to progressive liberals like Feinstein educate us on firearms. It's absurd. I'm all for discussion and debate, but I fucking hate when people with no literal experience speak in fucking absolutes about shit because they've read a book, watched some one sided documentaries, and hung out on /pol/
>>23355849 Let us never forget you silly kafir >>23355884 Whatever, it's fucking true. I literally feel like I'm listening to elementary school children. But you're all so caught up in your bullshit to realize how goddamn dumb you sound.
>>23355965 We lost our big momma goat to a stray round and we lost her little baby goat(coco) to a mortar on our COP in Baghdad. They were our pets. We took to the muhollas with all of our bottled rage and cleared block after goddamn block rounding up any suspected Mahdi Army terd.Coco's Revenge was the name of the operation. Heh. Haven't thought about that until today. RIP Coco you little QT
