"We need to return to the spirit of the military draft, and how people felt about service to their country. The military draft was viewed by most of us the same way we view income tax. I wouldn’t pay my taxes if there wasn’t the threat of jail. But as a responsible citizen, I also see that paying taxes is necessary to fund the government — my government." This person is insane

#48
Is that the argument they are making? I read that as "the Vietnam war made this country insane, rather than merely evil, and we have yet to recover." I also did not read the article, and have no plans to.
#49
They're arguing for a return of the draft NOT because people would rather join the army than go to jail. Defintenly NOT for that reason. Not that and 2. we can help people rationalize away their direct involvement in killing thanks to National Pride

ill be interested to see what is published for this series. the second article is far more level-headed.

troop argue in the wild, update, 1/13/2017. troops are beyond judgment because they do bad things due to some combination of mental illness, self-interest, and false consciousness, presumably unlike everyone else who does bad things

way to cripple US imperialism:
1. be elected president (this is the tricky part)
2. issue an order to invade antarctica or other unpopulated area
3. issue order to retreat
4. they all shoot each other for retreating

there's been a lot of ink spilled on the horror characters to be found on the internet, from the early freakbashing to the current obsession with being aghast at the anime nazis. but nobody has really ever mentioned what goes on in troopchat, which in practical terms is some of if not the worst shit happening today. deplorable_pepe says "he's a fucking cuck jew" while perhaps hoping the person dies, while killersteve_1992 says "yeah, you know, i actually killed all those people, and they were mostly 'civilians,' but they all had it coming"

there are a couple of themes to be found in troop posts, in relative order

1. stories about jacking off. this is the majority of them. every sub, surface ship, and base is full of dudes constantly jacking off. there is nothing wrong with jacking off in itself, but the military loves to present itself as a deeply professional institution which is contradicted by the fact that its every congregation is a giant cum fiesta, as it is by
2. stories about pranks, mostly involving bodily fluids, sexual assault, and/or the human ass. as one would expect, the inexhaustible cum supply makes a big showing here.
3. political posts written by someone with an 8th grade education where the thesis is advocating either more war or bitching about how their preferential treatment is not sufficient.
4. stories about that One Guy, the guy who stood out as a complete piece of shit even by the standards of moronic jizz factories wiping their asses on each other. this is usually followed by stories of pranking him or giving him a savage beating.
5. all women are cheating whores.
6. stories about fucking prostitutes.
7. stories about sexual harassment and/or assault they either ignored, or was ignored by the brass.
8. stories about how they killed somebody but they deserved it for being a piece of shit who decided to become a terrorist by virtue of shooting at the invading foreign army, followed by
9. that, except they have no legitimate excuse but are still fine with it.
10. i saw a kid blow up and man it fucked me up

The group was originally founded in 2015, and open to male members of the US Marine Corps, Navy Corpsmen and the British Royal Marines. According to a description from a retired Marine on Reddit, the group has a history with this type of content, with a “vast majority of the posted items were pictures of girls posts without permission, revenge porn, creepy stalker-like photos taken of girls in public, talk about rape, racist comments and just straight bullshit.”

https://www.revealnews.org/blog/hundreds-of-marines-investigated-for-sharing

The U.S. Department of Defense is investigating hundreds of Marines who used social media to solicit and share hundreds — possibly thousands — of naked photographs of female service members and veterans.

Since Jan. 30, more than two dozen women – many on active duty, including officers and enlisted service members – have been identified by their full name, rank and military duty station in photographs posted and linked to from a private Facebook page.

In one instance, a female corporal in uniform was followed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, by a fellow Marine, who surreptitiously photographed her as she picked up her gear. Those photographs were posted on the Facebook group Marines United, which has nearly 30,000 followers, drawing dozens of obscene comments.

One member of the Facebook group suggested that the service member sneaking the photos should “take her out back and pound her out.” Others suggested more than vaginal sex:

“And butthole. And throat. And ears. Both of them. Video it though … for science.”

Senior officials with Headquarters Marine Corps have verified that incident, as well as the distribution of photographs of other active-duty and veteran women through the page and links to a Google Drive.-photos-of-naked-colleagues/\\

Terrence J. McNeil, 24, of Akron, Ohio, pleaded guilty to five counts of solicitation to commit a crime of violence and five counts of making threatening interstate communications involving his soliciting the murder of members of the U.S. military.

The announcement was made by Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security Mary B. McCord, Acting U.S. Attorney David A. Sierleja for the Northern District of Ohio and Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthony of the FBI’s Cleveland Division.

“Terrence McNeil pleaded guilty to soliciting the murder of members of our military. He disseminated ISIL’s violent rhetoric, circulated U.S. military personnel information, and explicitly called for the killing of American service members in their homes and communities. Now, he will be held accountable,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General McCord. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism. We will continue to use all of our tools to disrupt those who use social media to threaten acts of violence against our military members and their families, on behalf of terrorist organizations.”

“This case demonstrates the challenges faced by law enforcement in confronting global terrorism,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Sierleja. “It highlights the dangers posed by terrorists committed to carrying out attacks here in the United States and their use of social media to accomplish their mission. The message should be clear that individuals who engage in this behavior will be aggressively prosecuted.”

“While we aggressively defend First Amendment rights, the individual arrested went far beyond free speech by reposting names and addresses of 100 U.S. service members, all with the intent to have them killed,” said Special Agent in Charge Anthony. “We will remain vigilant in our efforts to stop those who wish to support these despicable acts.”

According to documents filed in the case:

McNeil, a U.S. citizen, professed his support on social media on numerous occasions for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization. On or about Sept. 24, 2015, using a Tumblr account, McNeil reblogged a file with the banner “Islamic State Hacking Division,” followed by “Target: United States Military” and “Leak: Addresses of 100 U.S. Military Personnel.”

The file type is a .gif file, which allows multiple still images to be looped in one file, with a timed delay between each image. The text of the first file reads “O Brothers in America, know that the jihad against the crusaders is not limited to the lands of the Khilafah, it is a world-wide jihad and their war is not just a war against the Islamic State, it is a war against Islam…Know that it is wajib (translated to “necessary”) for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”

http://popularmilitary.com/us-army-base-lockdown-sixty-four-soldiers-busted-cocaine-drug-ring/?utm_source=The+Salty+Soldier

Authorities arrested several soldiers at Fort Stewart on Tuesday. The soldiers are believed to have used, had or involved in the sale of cocaine.

Officials at the base were reluctant to speak with Popular Military, only offering a small statement in a press release.

“We dedicate resources and work closely with our local law enforcement partners to identify and suppress illegal drug use in our ranks,” Maj. Gen. James Rainey, senior commander of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield, said in a news release.

An anonymous source at the base told Popular Military that sixty four soldiers from the 3-15 Infantry Battalion and the 1-30 Infantry Battalion are involved. It is not clear how many of them have been arrested. The source said the soldier at the top of the drug ring had ties to a known drug cartel.
