I hate to be "that guy", and I mean no disrespect to any soldier, but the war for independence ended long ago. Now we kill for oil, and we kill for democracy, and as of right now, that's it. There is currently no country out there capable of defeating the US army (especially not in the middle east) and there is no country dumb enough to even try. The reason we have troops in the middle east is to prevent the different political groups from killing each other, and to protect the US stake in the oil industries. Call me a hippie, or an anti-American asswipe, or whatever else you please, but I am none of the above. This is just how I see the US's current military situation. Again, I mean no disrespect to any soldier.

This is actually a pretty accurate view of the current situation. Despite what the media would like to portray we are neither saints nor the hellspawn of satan and the US military is a hell of a long way from incompetency. The US involvement in the Middle East is primarily political and economic with a little bit of humanitarian on the side.
#201 to #175 - bigrog (11/26/2012) [-]
i strongly disagree with your opinion but i respect it and i appreciate that you stated in a way in a non-douchbag like way. It's rare nowadays that people can be respectful when expressing there opinion
#248 to #201 - bigrog (11/26/2012) [-]
Sure, First off i dont believe the war was over oil. I think both wars were over different things. I think the war in Afgan and the war on terror in general were about satisfying the public and sending a message. After 9 11 the general public wanted blood, and bush gave it to them. Not to mention that if nothing was done it would have made us look weak witch would have opened the gate to more foreign aggressers. And you are right that no can defeat the US army but the problem is they are attacking civilians, not are military. That is part of the reason we are still there. As for Iraq I truly do believe that they believed there were WMDs. I think we stayed because you cant exactly leave after overthrowing a goverment and getting there leader executed. I wont say that we just for the people, I think the main reason was we were fearful of someone even more dangerous, though i dont think that our presence there has been all bad. Sadam kept many terrorist groups supressed so after his fall many of them emerged and our soilders have been able to try there best to control them. I personally know a sniper who took the head off a terrorist holding a Iraqi family hostage. They were even able to give them the protection to hold there very first elections

It is kind of irrelevant nowadays anyway. We live in the Nuclear era therefor i suppose our major wars will be fought in politics under nuclear threat, as shown in the last great war, the Cold war.
User avatar #233 to #175 - Crusader (11/26/2012) [-]
1 - The picture is referencing how even small freedoms people take for granted are earned by the blood of those willing to sacrifice everything.
2 - That is still happening, though in a different area, yes, the wars fought now are more for money than freedom or liberty.
Over in the middle east, the USA is putting in politicians with pro-america ideals, meaning that to remain pro-america, they will try and make their countries into america, meaning that even though it is for money, they are creating freedoms in order to create a bond with the USA.
Instead of the ends justifying the means, the means are here to justify the ends.
3 - I would debate the whole "no one can defeat us" no one can flat out defeat you.
If China for instance were to attack the USA, if it were a conventional war, then I think China would win, not only is the USA in debt to China, therefore you already don't have the money for resources. But China outnumbers the USA 3-1 (last time I checked). Yes the USA has many, many allies. But those allies are quite weak when you look at them, UK? a few million, Canada, a few million, Russia? They trade more with China and would join them given what I have seen coming from them recently. The rest of Asia would join China, purely because much of Asia still resents the USA, sure South Korea may join, but they can't exactly compare to North Korea can they?

All in all, China would come out on top, but both countries would lose heavily.
User avatar #241 to #233 - iliekcereal (11/26/2012) [-]
I think if the US was to be defeated in war by a country, it would most likely be to China. However, I don't think China is quite there yet. In a few years we'll almost definitely have something to worry about, especially if we don't get our **** together economically. If we were to enter war with China today, I think it would be pretty close, but I still think the US comes out on top, just barely.
#342 to #233 - Stamyham (11/26/2012) [-]
China may have quantity, but the US military dominates in quality - for the time being, at least. Not to mention the large amounts of armed citizens who would be more than willing to stand up and fight in a serious war for our freedom. With the way the Chinese government oppresses their citizens, the Chinese citizens (even if they were armed by the government and willing to fight) wouldn't have the degree of competency with weapons that the US citizens have. They also wouldn't have the same national spirit and desire to fight, assuming the Chinese initiate the war in an attempt to dominate the US. In a situation like that, national spirit would heavily favor the defenders. Besides, if there is a conflict with China, it will most likely be an economic conflict. They know that if they were to pit their military against ours, it would be too close for comfort for either side.

Also, what the **** would the Russians do, anyway?

User avatar #218 to #213 - sketchE (11/26/2012) [-]
Ive seen so many people say that the military isnt protecting them because the country isnt being attacked. When you look at it, however, the reason no ones ever waltzed in and taken our freedoms is because we have always had a powerful military with men and woman ore than willing to lay down their lives in defense of their fellow man

1. what oil company in the U.S. has the rights to import oil from Iraq? it must specify iraq not the middle east because we already get a lot from saudi
2. our nation is defended by the mere presence of our nation

In Canda our soldiers die because your people pick fights they can't win.
We got our freedom by asking for it.

My history book says otherwise.
We clearly won our freedom by picking a fight we could win.
#178 to #165 - keroberios (11/26/2012) [-]
Granted. That is a very good point. I will give the states credit for taking freedom and holding it like the mighty torch that it is. Pretty much the one and only thing you guys have ever done right. Well, kind of right. Because after you won that, you did fight against yourself about what to do with it.
And then you fought Canada for territory and we burnt your White House down in 1812.
It's been pretty well downhill ever since then.

Though our troops tend to be misused these days, keep in mind that our soldiers are still doing what they do for us, not for the government. They get sent wherever the politicians want them to go and just have to make the best of what they're given.

Instead of this invading and sitting around getting shot at that we've been doing lately, we ought to be going in, eliminating the threat, and leaving as quickly as humanly possible.

The mere threat of the military is it's greatest asset. Peace through superior firepower.

'Though our troops tend to be misused these days, keep in mind that our soldiers are still doing what they do for us, not for the government. They get sent wherever the politicians want them to go and just have to make the best of what they're given. '

Keep in mind that what you wrote was the same reason that German citizens had a moral obligation to support their troops in WW2.

Not always good.

When some of your troops are massacring an entire group of people, the situation is clearly different.

But keep in mind that even under the Nazi regime there were soldiers who realized what was happening and tried to stop Hitler.

So yes, you do have a point in a sort of "be careful" manner.

We stopped fighting for freedom after WWII. We started policing the world without the world's consent after that. A more appropriate picture would be the world holding America up instead of soldiers.

I respect soldiers to no end, but they don't fight for America's freedom, they fight for others'.
User avatar #55 to #52 - Crusader (11/25/2012) [-]
I would argue that the conflicts in Vietnam and Korea were about the freedom of those countries to choose their own economic and social system, which kind of backfired because then they attacked everyone, just trying to get them out.

As for the Middle East, they still are fighting for people to be able to vote and for equal rights, the problem is, they are also supporting leaders with very pro-america views, making it so the only ones that get elected are going to be the ones they want.
Sort of freedom, but at the same time, sort of not freedom.

The real question is whether or not we have the right to police the world.
User avatar #58 to #57 - Crusader (11/25/2012) [-]
At this point, I don't think this is policing the world.
If the USA was truly doing that, then they would be in Africe, back in South-East Asia, hell even down in South America.

Right now it's not that they are policing the world, it's that they are protecting their interests in the middle east. That's where a large amount of people are, that's where a lot of resources are, and that's where the USA is going to find it's biggest new allies.
User avatar #61 to #58 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
And we're wasting human lives to protect our own selfish needs and claiming it's for freedom
User avatar #67 to #61 - Crusader (11/25/2012) [-]
Well yes, and no.
To a point yes you are correct, but for every politician that they put in power because they help the USA, that politician wants to remain close to the USA. And to do that, they help give the people a little bit more freedom, so they look good.
The reason they do it is bad, but you have to ask yourself if the ends justify the means, and vice versa.

Even in World War II, it's said that Roosevelt might have allowed the attack on Pear Harbor as an excuse to enter the war to help the country escape the depression. We mostly joined because we let the Allies borrow hella cash and if they had lost the United States wouldn't get their money back.
User avatar #91 to #52 - The Fonz (11/26/2012) [-]
In my history class we were just talking about how maybe the US should stop being the "Big Brother" country by policing around the world, but one of the reasons we do so is because the treaties with countries bring perks.
