Nobody should be in the military. That's it. Jesus spoke of love, love for the enemies aswell. Shooting them, killing them, is not part of it.
A true pacifist!
If there were no military, we'd all be speaking German, or we'd be worshiping Allah.

So I'd ask, pacifism at what cost?

I agree
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.
Death by starvation is a terrible thing, Goodsir, continued Stanley.
And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

When I was one day in Israel, I saw women-soldiers. So I suppose, in Isreal also woman serve in military.
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.
-- 1 Thessalonians 5:21

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Of course, what man wouldn't want to be instructed by Wonder Woman. :ebiggrin:

So I'd ask, pacifism at what cost?
And Ireland may have sovereignty, Indigenous Australians may have not been slaughtered, in Tasmania almost wiped out. African Americans may not have been exploited, Native Americans not stripped of their land. If the Vietnam war was actually about civilians and not policy. If Gaddafi wasn’t assissinated.
But yea what if??
If not for the military self servicing actions of the few, the many would be much better off.

It was. I was simply pointing out that your response was a typical leftist response. And the poke was to lighten the mood, because sometimes leftist snowflakes are easily offended.

I admit that I could've responded by saying that I agree that sometimes military is used for evil. But I didn't think that was necessary, because I was originally responding to someone who thinks there is no good reason for military, whatsoever. And even as far left as you are, I don't think you believe there should be no military.

And btw, don't you think Gal Gadot is hot?

Oh good god I’ve seen the stupidity of social media and this snowflake insult and I guess I thought maybe those on here where a little more above that.
Haha it’s been a bleak winter I guess lol.
Give me something a little more clever.

Amd yes I think there should be military intervention where and when needed. In direct response to threat. Perhaps in your scenario gal gadot is just as plausible as every other US invasion.

Good, then I really don't see why you responded as you did to my comment about if there were no military, we'd all be speaking German or worshiping Allah.

Nazi Germany was a threat, as well as Islam was, and may be again.

I responded to your comment because it’s elist and bullcrap.
It’s not difficult to look outside of your own box to see how that viewpoint is very narrow.
I get it your American and somehow you guys are lost in your own sense of grandeur.
From a foreigner, we see you as the agressor. In this century many a conflict could have been avoided if not your self serving reasons. Many women and children have died at the hands of American aggression. Millions in fact. And many are awoken up to it.
