9. The DoD does not even know the exact number of military golf clubs and vacation destinations


(known as bases) it has around the world. The military does not protect my freedom and liberty, in fact it endangers them because the rest of the world is scared shitless of the US and must arm themselves just in case we look their direction for resources. We invade countries without provocation. The real topper is, we have not prevailed in a conflict since WWII. Vietnam was a bust and cost 50,000 of my peers lives and hundreds of thousands maimed. Korea got nowhere and is still costing billions per year. Iraq is still up for grabs and still has sectarian violence on a daily basis. Afghanistan will always be tribal, the English found this out after ten years, the Soviets found this out after ten years, and (lol) America is finding out after more than eleven years, so far. You might point to the Iraq/Kuwait conflict, well hooray, we protected our oil companies what a stunning victory ( ). We are the only nation to kill with nuclear bombs and this started the "arms race" of the '60s,'70s and '80s. Anybody that praises intellectual midgets that enlist in the military as "America's heroes" are too misguided to even pity. "Thanks for your service General Petraeus and General Sinclair" now go back to pressuring subordinates for sexual favors.
