I don't get it

So...living in Canada and having some of your lovely channels I am exposed to some of the advertising putforth by the US army/navy. It's...interesting to say the least.

It seems there are some general traits they all have in common:
- Get off your *** and do something productive!!! Like...JOIN THE ARRRMMYY YAAAA
- The experience you will gain at the army is an exhilarating worthwhile journey. It's narrowmindedness disciplinary sheepish routines will make sure we maintain the best army in the world. YAAAA!!!!
- We have the best technological weaponry on the planet, we will blow away all of the competition, bar none. Don't you wanna play with guns...and tanks...and helicopters...and airplanes....and OMG yup, theyre in now....drones???
- We always have an enemy (to which we don't really tell you why) that we can **** up...and you bet they keep on coming, I mean...why would we be running all these ads right?
- The army is a great thing to have on your resume. You will stand out of the crowd when looking for further employment oppurtunities.

Army
- Be all you can be
Navy
- A global force for good

Excuuuuuuuuse me? Is noone astonished by the **** they say on these ads? A global force for good? A global force for good? Give me a break, how illusioned must you be to NOT SEE THAT THE UNITED STATES HAS NEVER BEEN ATTACKED SINCE WWII. (don't give me this stuff about 9/11).

So, I guess what I'm trying to ask is....Why in the world would anyone risk their life for the neo-imperialistic superpower the United States is? How much (dare I say) brainwashing goes on?

It is a completely different matter to speak of WWII, so please, enlighten me on your views.


edit: yes I realize most will poke fun somehow, or be in outrage over this post. I would like some half-decent responses however. Just trying to open up minds at the same time open mine

Evidently reading comprehension hasn't been one of your career choices.

My original reply was in reference to the "topic at hand" you just failed to comprehend it.

Oh and I joined the military so I could indiscriminately murder little brown babies.....and puppies.

I hear the peace corps is fun. You go to the same places as the military, except without any means to defend yourself ( aside from calling the military ). And you get aids. You should go bra.

Taking a serious look at your original post, I can tell you the US Navy slogan was voted on by new recruits at bootcamp. People that know nothing of what they will be tasked with doing.

The bonds that form, the ties that bind are not to the US Government. They are to the ideals that the ensign represents, they are to their brothers and sisters in arms. People are initially sold a lie, sure, but you can take that lie and do something with it.

Something I have noticed - the vast majority of people are lazy. They are listless, and will do absolutely nothing with their lives. They have no sense of responsibility or ability to work cohesively within a group to accomplish tasks with speed and finality.

Toronto? What a douche. I've worked in the Electrical field for over 2 years plus school, done 2 years concrete and currently doing High Voltage work. Work gets boring as **** and being a reservist spices life up. Week nights and weekends at the range make life less boring. That and the idea of a deployment someday
