11. They should be shown graphic pictures of the products of war
before being allowed to "enlist"...

Instead of antiseptic computer games or fancy uniforms performing snappy close order drill or fanciful vignettes of collegial bloodless manipulation of machines played during football and basketball games...

They should see the bloody missing limbs, the blown apart heads and torsos, the rape and pillage...

The shrapnel-filled children...

And be told the futile history of every fucking war that was ever "fought" on this planet...

How there's not situation that can't be made worse by war...

And instead of supporting and glorifying that grotesque abomination we should be breading it OUT OF THE RACE!
