We’ve been at war for ten freaking years, with our ruling class treating our military, as Mark says, like cement to be shoveled around the world at will. What do they expect?
We are ruled by a criminal class of vampires who suck the life out of these good men and women and think only of their portfolios. They will be lucky beyond their deserts if the troops they crap on do not one day decide that their loyalties lie toward their countrymen and not to a vampire class with no loyalty to country that sees the rest of us as a herd of cattle to be butchered and eaten whenever their tongues within their wobbling jowels feel peckish. Our troops are only flesh and blood. You cannot use them and their families as tools forever, Caesar.
