Your feelings are as mixed as my own. Thanks for answering.
Good question. We have these cycles, it seems, of wars and other military adventures and I hate to think of reservists being called up again for more deployments. I really hope the question is moot, and we can stay out of armed conflict a long time.
True. If the sons and daughters of more affluent citizens had been sent into Iraq, that war would not have lasted so long. I am not in favor of a draft, it is the lack of jobs for lower income people that feeds the military, as you say.
The unemployment is kept high so kids don't have much choice but go into the military. It's a shame that 1% are deployed over & over again. Make it like the IDF, All sexes, 2 years, get education, housing help afterwards.

Also all the debris was shipped to China instead of shifted through for years by the FAA as in all other plane crashes.
