Lol. You are so ignorant it would be amusing if not for how sad it is. You know nothing about the military. Your opinion (which is unimportant) is so common among civilians. "Oh if you serve or have served in the military then you are just a brain washed machine programmed to believe everything your government tells you like a hivemind." I'm sure you believe that everyone who has ever served is a White, Christian, male, NRA, Pro life, pro war, anti gay, Republican, right?Yeah that's pretty stupid. The honest truth is the military is as diverse and opinionated as the civilian sector. We have people from all walks of life who believe all manner of things. Joining the military doesn't magically make you abandon all your beliefs in replace of some "group think" (seriously how stupid is that concept?) in my section alone out of 35 people we had 9 guys who believe 9/11 was an inside job, 3 guys who believe the moon landing was fake, 12 guys who believe we invaded Iraq for oil, at least half who believed in the illuminati, and 1 guy who even believed in alien reptilian Jew overloaded. But according to you it's physically impossible for any of them to have had such beliefs. I mean we're all wome giant hive mind? right? WRONG. What you and all civilians misunderstand of misinterpret, usually intentionally, is that while we are in the military we, for the most part, keep our political views to our selves. Politics is something we talk about amongst ourselves when we're out in the Field or on our 16th hour of firewatch or waiting for formation and the conversations about beer, sex, guns and killing have gotten boring. But only amongst your close comrades and not out in public or on social media. As professional military personnel we keep our political beliefs to ourselves. For instance. I despise Obama. Hate him. Absolutely hate him. But whilst I was active duty it would be unprofessional and unbecoming of me to take to Facebook and post anti Obama comments, even though i personally hate him. Does this magically make me a robot who now believes in the your "group think" and now I follow Obama every word and worship him? (*)(*)(*)(*) no. I still hated the (*)(*)(*)(*)er. And now that I am out I do post (*)(*)(*)(*) Obama memes on Facebook. So you see. Your opinion is as ignorant and baseless as you yourself are.
