Marinefag reporting in,
You fucking cowards have one post to explain why you aren't serving your country.
Make it good, pussies.
your the governments bitch and oboma is fucking you guys left and right
New Marine here, don't join the fucking military christ
1. I don't feel like it.
2. Welcome to America
3. Please enjoy your freedoms without shitting on anyone else's.
4. Don'tYour indoctrination bother the rest of us.
5. YOU chose your own path.
6. None of us asked you to do this.
Because I want to act hard in the marines and take orders from these guys. Pic related
Because I'm not gay enough to desire being with a group of men with no interaction with women?
But if you're into that, OP. Then I guess that's cool...
because i try, to the best of my abilities, not to serve anyone other than myself. the whole "honor" and "hero" stuff is just hot air to get stupid young people to do as they are told
Because I'm not a sucker.
because i'm a asthmatic drug user they wouldn't take me in the army why would they take me in the marines?
What the fuck is wrong with this nigger's mouth?
Because I don't want some jew motherfucker telling me what to do, say, eat, when to sleep, where to go and who to kill every fucking second of my short blip of existence in the cosmos
I'm going trough medschool right now. And you're going to be damn fucking happy I did once you (or close relative) get diagnosed with some terrible disease you can't even pronounce and my "coward-studying" will be the only thing that can save your dear life.
I wouldn't mind taking on arms to defend my people [note: MY PEOPLE... not my country] in a defensive war, but "professional" military for me is nothing more than a bunch of suicidal butchers.
I wanted to become a Marine but my ASVAB scores were too high
Infantry here. Do what ever the hell you want. I envy the civilian life. I cant wait for the day I can be a civ again and i don't hold any animosity for those who don't serve.
More then likely the person who made this post just got out of boot and sucks the dick
Military is entering a draw-down. It has enough manpower and it does not need me to serve it. The constant saying I heard in ROTC was "do more with less."
Besides, I'm going to make more money as a civilian. And it will be easier to find a wife.
>asvab scores were too high
Bullshit. My entire 5 years on active duty, I had SNCOs telling me I was lying about my ASVAB scores because "they don't go that high."
Recruiters fucking love a high ASVAB score. They can just toss a book of MOSs in front of you and let you pick one.
Got my DD-214 because I don't love cock as much as you.
i signed up
then on the rifle range figured out that the m16 is in fact a death machine.
recall instance of witnessing some homeless fuck's head exploding from handgun, when i was 3 years old.
instantly realize human shaped target would be shooting back in iraq.
fuck this shit i'm outta here
grab bitch ass recruit pham by the collar and let the DI know this bitch is dead if i'm not promoted to RSP.
promptly return home conveinience of government for being a nut job
>You're somehow serving us by dumping what remains of our nation's wealth into occupying a country that isn't fucking ours.
"Gee, look at how the people who live here are shooting at us! What a bunch of shit skins!"
because killing innocent people to expand your shit empire isn't serving your country. If anything, refusing to serve terrorists in expensive suits in the name of country is the patriotic thing to do. faggot. and marines are pussies.
Who said you can't serve your country without joining the armed forces? I am serving society by educating the next generation. Being part of the armed forces of your own country is commendable unless you're too chicken shit to question authority. No great leaders have ever been great followers.
look at this disgrace. if it wasn't for fgts like op, you niggers would be speaking nazi and terrorist right now. Hell, not even that! You probably wouldn't even have freedom of speech in the first place
I live in a country that isn't so filled with retards that it requires a large military to keep the dumb population down.
We're all civilized about it by letting them starve instead.
I genuinely want to know why I pay your salary with my taxes if all your gonna do is be an attention whore.
> I am serving society by educating the next generation.
>You see, Timmy, Jamal's not being "disruptive" to the class. That's just him vocalizing 2000 years of oppression by you filthy, filthy, privileged, white people.
Because i joined the navy. Its this awesome branch that sctually sets you up with cool shit and a person can do something with there lives in it. Also, the marine corp is for idiots who wanna seem tough, but they just end up hating there life.
Well if that was the case, we wouldnt know the difference because this culture wouldnt exist. Why would we miss something we dont know about? We would just live on in the regime that is ruling at the time, just like we live in the one that happens to be ruling now. There's no difference, the american empire is a terrorist organization and we live in it.
Did. Got blown up. Forced to retire.
In the age of M.A.D., the actions of almost all military personnel are completely superfluous. There is nothing a soldier could do to stop an incoming ICBM, there is nothing one billion soldiers could do to stop an incoming ICBM.
Nobody can invade us conventionally, because we can make their country cease to exist within hours. Hard to launch an invasion when the origin of your supply lines is a burning crater.
No US soldier has fought for America's security since WW2.
And you want me to join up now? For the "war on terror" ? They are terrorists precisely because they lack the means to threaten my freedom. And there's nothing special about terrorists, all they do is abuse the free movement afforded to them in a society that allows free travel. Anybody can do that.
If we ever magically get invaded, I'll be there to repel invaders, whether your group that calls itself the military comes along or not.
Your "career" exists as a pretense to transfer public money into the hands of private industrialists. Military spending throughout the cold war to today represents the largest transfer of wealth in known human history.
We are not supposed to have a standing army in peacetime, only a navy. The second amendment was created to circumvent the need for an army; the government is not supposed to have teeth. You are a traitor to the vision of our founders.
If you don't believe me, try reading what they said for yourself. I suggest beginning with the first congressional debate on arms and militia, 1789.
I don't begrudge you dipping your cup into the massive revenue stream that is ripped by force from productive citizens. The powermongers get their pound of flesh either way, either through the taxes of civilians, or the blood of soldiers who sign up. If this is how you choose to pay, that is fine with me.
But I soundly reject the idea that you're actually doing anything worthwhile.
graduated high school full ride to college casual enjoyable job where all income is 100% disposable entirely self-sufficient and I have no need to stroke my ego by being brainwashed by retards who believe anything the government tells them
>we wouldnt know the difference because this culture wouldn't exist
This isn't true, by the mid 20th century american patriotism was so institutionalized that if we were to be taken over or invaded, the aggressors would face civilian resistance. The culture would still exist.
But even if that situation didn't happen, the fact would still remains that we would be remembered from history as the losers or the conquered.
Obvious attempt at troll here because we all know that joining military is the easy way out. Sign a few papers, take a test, take a physical and ta-da; soldier. Had respect for military up until I realize every degenerate from high school from mexicans who shout "east side ese" to niggers who steal from mentally challenged were accepted into military. These are the guys who are to be respected? No thanks. I'll pass. The ONLY marine I will ever respect is marinechan.
lost my penis in '06 in a tragic accident. not fit for duty.
>ain't none of your business how i lost my cock, faggots
anyway, i salute you OP. may you continue plowing your brothers in arms with your average sized dick
Just turned 24 the other day.
In the best shape of my life.
Strength requirements are where they need to be to get in and stamina requirements are FAAAR beyond where they need to be.
However, I'm 24. Too old.
Hmm, i can't believe the argument actually lasted this long. I thought this would only consist of each other calling one another names. Whatever though.
If we theoretically were to be taken over by a foreign country, by this generation we probably would start seeing children speaking the foreign dialect. Of course, cultural, american iconography isn't completely going to go away (depending on how adamant the invaders are in unamericanizing us). But even, then you missed the point. Me saying that you people would be speaking different language is a figure of speech for america wouldn't exist as a country or that american people would be oppressed. Indeed, you need military to be globally relevant and of course for security.
the corps is the best thing that can ever happen to a lot of joes and betties and their familieis
inb4 despite being victim of the 'evil green weenie' or being the 'instrument' of government leader stupidity
inb4 are really an afterthought of the navy
inb4 you're just responding to a stupid troll
inb4 murricans is stupid
>army fag here op being in marines proves op is indeed a faggot.
we all serve are country, anon
and lots of people start out as marines, then route out to army, navy, air force, etc.
marines get a lot of army instructors training them, or had you simply forgotten ?
“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!”
Because I choose life. And also not serving a corrupt as fuck government that lies to its people just to invade places to get oil.
>mfw 9/11 was a setup
>mfw your probably going to get yourself killed for a bad cause
>mfw after I get done laughing about how stupid you are
>mfw you probably have mental issues like most people who join the army
>the corps is the best thing that can ever happen to a lot of joes and betties and their familieis
>pre defending your post from backlash
>please tell me more how the cor made your life better by putting you in a war zone and paid you shit
you or anyone else would be hard-pressed to find any other organisation that bonds as closely as the corps
there's a lot of guys that need that and have been denied that
easily twice as long and twice as hard as any other branch, and...yes, it is a form of 'reprogramming' recruits into really effective, highly-disciplined groups, able to do the seemingly impossible at times
elite groups like the rangers, the navy seals and others do have better and more exquisitely tuned training specifically for extreme situations, but even a greenhorn recruit who's just out of basic is arguably now more disciplined and ready for further 'moudling' than any other branch
i like to compare marines to firefighters: both have been trained to run into the fire without flinching without worrying about personal consequences, because they're focused on a mission which is more important
there are times when we absolutely have to have that kind of dedication and service and the corps still cultivates this
and someone has to be there defending the nation, so just be glad, anon, that some people are still willing to risk life and limb to protect civvies like you and a still mostly better way of life, right ?
>still dying for Israeli interests
Amerifats when will they learn?
the rivalry is light-hearted, particularly when you guys start hating on tun tavern and what faggets we are
just tired and got in an argument with a neighbor yesterday who was hating on the corps
as an illegal immigrant, she should just be glad she lives here and someone's defending us all
The amount of iraqui civilians that have been killed by american soldiers as of last year is somewhere around 150,000. The amount of american civilians killed by iraquis doesnt even exceed 3,000. Also as a side note, american police officers have killed over 5,000 civilians since 9/11. Nothing about the U.S needs/deserves protection.
5'08" black drill instructor wearing glasses. wtf devil dogs?!
The military was going to be my emergency plan but I have self afflicted scars on my bicep and thighs. I was told that's a no no.
But mostly because like... peace and love, man
>I hate the people in my country
bought says it all right there, anon
there is plenty of room overseas...and the door is always open, right ?
So thankful for this thread.
>two years ago, just graduated high school
>"Mom, dad, I don't want to go to college. I want to join the Marines. I want to serve my country and do something I can be proud of."
>"No you don't son, you want to go to college and hate your life like we do."
>agree with them
>recently have epiphany
>want to join Marines and serve my country
>decide to still get my degree
I'm still going to join, despite my parents' wishes. I figure it's better to regret what you don't do than to regret what you do. My therapist agrees with me. Any advice? I definitely need to join a gym because I'm a hungry skeleton.
But the Marines is part of my family history and I'm ready to serve and to die for my country.
>The military should be for defense
100% totally agree, anon
starting with johnson, we became embroiled in a series of cold-war mini-wars and conflicts that really did not serve our nation's interests especially
starting with madeleine albright, our leadership started to redefine our military as a police force for the new world order and a weapon of choice for political goals and not necessarily defensive ones for our nation or our allies
this was the reason colin powell and madeleine never got along
blaming the military for the mistakes of the country's leadership is like blaming employers because our schools are turning out stupid-heads
the military has to do its job and its job is not running the country, unless we want to go the route of south american dictatorships
If this country is truly mine then I should be able to do what I want with it, which involves not going to war.
So far, I have failed to accomplish this, which tells me that this country is NOT my country.
I have no obligations to it, other than the work I do for it that pays for what it gives me in return.
