That's awful. Our family had a close friend who committed suicide one day without reason. He didn't have PTSD or anything, didn't leave a note of any kind. Him and his wife seemingly had been doing well for themselves just got a new place and everything. One night he walks into the kitchen while she was making dinner, and asks her to hand him his gun. Which had out since he had been cleaning it. She didn't think anything of it, thought he was going to put it away. He sat down at the table and shot himself in the head without saying a word.

I have a -minor- case. I was sexually abused as a child. Most of the time I am okay but if somebody touches my neck I just... I am just gone, I am not there anymore.
The last time it happened I broke a girls jaw. I then lost my job.

Someone close to me have severe PSTD (and depression), no war, no classroom bully. Just grew up in the wrong place, with the wrong kind of people. Been trough a lot he/she have, people often brush it off as nothing, I did too, now I have a slight idea how tormenting and awful it is.

What is this, the stone age? Another country can't be the source of another country's problems?
Let's take the biggest, most cliché example. Al-Qaida and America. How many jokes we make about 9/11 still doesn't hide the fact that 9/11 was quite the terrible attack on America. It has been the source of fear in nearly all the Western nations. ISIS too is a source of fear in Western nations.
Are you going to tell me that having our (Western nation) soldiers there to neutralize ISIS and Al-Qaida is unjustified?
Some people who live in First world countries seem, in my experience, to be ignorant as to why they are living such a comfortable life. A police force is to keep order and peace within the country. The military force is there to keep threats out of the country, in any way possible.
Now, I don't come from a Third World country, but neither was I born in a First World country (grew up for the latter part of my rather short life in one though).
I was born in Thailand, a Second World country (if that is the proper term). It's even one of the better countries in Southeast-Asia. I can still see the difference in luxury between the average Thai middle-class citizen and the Belgian or British middle-class citizen.
I find it, quite frankly, appalling how people could forget the basics of why and how they come to live in such a luxurious environment.

>2,900+ died on the 9/11 attacks
>2,500,000 (Still climbing) die trying to "justify" the attack
Don't fucking feed anyone or (yourself for that matter) that gimmicky "Killing more people will save more people" bullshit, the war was supposed to fucking end a long time ago instead of sending the American Men and Women to go die in a fucked up country loaded with a bunch of fucked up religious extremists. I'd rather soon see the Islamic state burn itself to the ground and become reformed than send another American as cannon fodder for business we should damn well have no part of.

You seem to be nitpicking on the details. I merely picked the 9/11 attacks as an example.
Matter of fact is, the Islamitic/Muslim extremists (or any extremists for that matter) are being a threat. Sometimes physically, sometimes psychologically and other times both.
Though, let's make a hypothetical situation where this isn't a vengeance operation. Where we don't try to avenge our dead. Let's say these people aren't even a threat to us. (Sidenote: when I say "us" I refer to the Western nations as a whole. This includes but is most likely not limited to the US and West-Europe)
Would you still be fine with living comfortably in your own home, knowing there are a shit ton of problems far outside of your own home which could be resolved through our intervention? I will admit that what I'm saying sounds very "Social Justice Warrior"-esque (for a lack of a better term) but I personally could not sit still, knowing there are problems to be resolved.
"I don't want to see one of our soldiers die for business we should have no part of" is what I anticipate you to repeat. I find there are at least two problems with this statement.
1) You are saying this in a manner, which implies people who join the military are forced into it. However, if you properly inform yourself of current day events and your military's policies, then you are joining entirely voluntarily. You should know beforehand what you get yourself into.
I'm personally preparing myself for the entrance exam of the Royal Military Academy with every intention to get in and join the Land Component afterwards, hoping to get into the Paracommandos. This means that I am fully aware I'm putting my life and sanity at stake here, and I'm completely willing to ruin both for what it's worth.
2) Your statement seems to be a "non-interference policy" based statement. A policy which, if I remember correctly, is nigh identical with the Munroe Doctrine. I fear this statement may be driven by relatively extreme nationalism/patriotism. You want only the best for your country and/or yourself and do not wish to help others. While this is entirely up to an individual's opinion, one should still realize that their opinion could get in the way of the others.
I can't speak for everyone in the military, so I will just hypothesize that a person joining the military has the intention to protect his country and to help other countries, should the military he is joining be capable of such feats. Considering the military power of Western countries should be larger than the countries we currently have issues with (see the Middle East in general), one should almost entirely expect to be deployed in such troubling countries.
While the choice of whether or not to respect the men and women serving in the military is entirely up to the individual in question, it is in one's best interest to not forget the purpose of each aspect which a country is built on/off.

"Would you still be fine with living comfortably in your own home, knowing there are a shit ton of problems far outside of your own home which could be resolved through our intervention?"
Maybe I could, maybe I couldn't that depends on the person and situation, Je Suis Charlie? Ebola Outbreaks? Protests in Mexico? All of these problems aren't MY concern because I technically have no feeling as though they are a threat to my way of life. Now, I don't feel as though your perception is very "SJW-like", if anything it's somewhat noble.
Now as to your two points:
1.) I know that we are NOT in a draft and that as voluntary as enlisting is, it may still be someone's only option in terms of "Join the Military, we'll pay for all your schooling and cover several expenses so long as you don't die and don't kill yourself when you get back home." Now I'm not one to judge nor stop you or anybody from wanting to join the military because it's their choice, as somewhat suicidal as I think it sounds.
2.) I see where you're coming from, but I'm afraid I might have given you the wrong impression I am all in for non-violent interference and for assisting countries in removing corrupt heads from power (Say, North Korea if an uprising were to take place without support or repercussions from China). However, I don't see that as the case in The Middle East as it seems our efforts there are wasted in bloodshed on either side. I'd be rather supportive of the conflict if I felt like the United States was in more of an immediate danger from that region of the world rather than them being a danger to themselves (which is why we still have African Warlords slaughtering each other while the gun runners profit; simply because the US doesn't need to be there since they're too busy killing themselves rather than staring us down). I don't believe in the US being a world-police trying to resolve every conflict, and as selfish as it sounds, I don't think sending our soldiers to other countries to fight in their wars is a great idea either.
As for the men and women in our country sacrificing themselves for a questionable cause with an uncertain-to-obtain payout, I respect them, but not the conflict for which they've gone forward with. I apologize if I came off rash in my first comment, but I do appreciate your time reading this and in all honesty acknowledge and respect your previous statements/opinions.
