I finally graduated Basic training a week ago. I'm not in Fort Huachuca, Arizona for school. Basic training wasn't as easy as the history channel made it seem but it was easy as long as you could handle the mental aspect of it. The hardest part was getting treated like a child even though everyone there was a grown adult. It kinda sucked doing Pushups and situps in the cold rain wearing a thin longsleeve t-shirt and shorts though. I wish I hadn't gone through basic in the winter that's for damn sure. Now I'm in AIT and I have more freedom. They have some AT&T cyber zone thing here too that I can use the computer on so that's where I'm posting on.

OH yeah and by the way, don't join the army, it fucking sucks not being able to do what I want when I want.

Your job is to die for America so I can continue to drink large alcoholic drinks from plastic coconuts.

And by "drink large alcoholic drinks from plastic coconuts", of course, I mean sit on my ass and absorb CRT radiation.

Yeah I'm on holdunder status right now waiting for my classes to start. I don't start class until January so until then they put me on bullshit details all day long. I'm bored out of my fucking mind and I'm ready to go home for christmas vacation.

I'm more than happy playing America's Army: Operations.

I'll stick as far away from flying shrapnel as possible.
Unless I'm called upon by selective service.... But even then the U.K. isn't looking too bad.

Maybe you'll get sent to Iraq as part of Operation Human Shield? It worked in South Park. :)

The odds of the Selective Service EVER being reactivated in this country are pretty slim. The structure of the military these days isn't all that manpower intensive, and since the majority of the military is in the reserves not active duty (at least, last time I checked) there's a whole lot of activiations to call in before they'd start drafting.

Anymore, it's as if the world lacks the spine to wage a bloody ground war anyway.

Rather than handling Iraq correctly the first time, going in by hand and rooting him out and incurring casualties in the process, we make a flashy circus out of killing the enemy from across an ocean with Tomahawk missles. I doubt we have the conviction to actually send our soldiers into a campaign where there would be heavy casualties.

If a single american pilot gets shot down over Afghanistan, the media talks about it for a week. If, god forbid, a helecopter gets shot down over Mogadishu in an operation against a hostile warlord, it's labeled as the worst military blunder of the decade, and the U.S. runs away with it's tail between it's legs and we make a movie out of it.

I'm sorry, I don't like the idea of war at all, but if we do need to go to war, then the nasty cold reality is that you can't stop and pause every time someone gets shot-- it's going to happen even in the best of circumstances.

So we'll see what happens with Iraq. It seems really stupid that Iraq would even attempt to rebuild any weapons, knowing that there would never be an instance where they could use them and not have the entire UN declare war against them. Based on what little information we're given, I'm going to assume that Iraq really doesn't have anything major-- but I also believe that Bush is going to use whatever excuse he can to drop some more bombs on Iraqi civilians, so he can score one for ol' pop

So, holy christ, how times change.

I'm now an officer with nearly a decade of service time.

We were dumb, then. Still are, but were then, too.


Don't ever let these forums die, Rihard.

Richard has nothing to do with these stupid forums. He died of heart disease 6 years ago.

That bitch is dead.

We're left with a fully paid-for, thanks (somehow) to Google ads, forum with no moderation, no ability to sign up new members, and almost no posters.

It's great!

Frankly, i'm in favor of no moderation. But only because everyone here grew up and isn't going to be super annoying.

This is just an email server that happens to also have a forum.
