The difference is thusly:

Support the men and women who go overseas and serve in the military. They are doing a tough job and deserve all the praise we can possibly give them.

Vote out the ******* in congress who keep sending them over there!

Congress is the only body in the US which can declare war. Lrn2politics.

The president can send troops anywhere for 90 days under executive order, but any longer needs congressional approval.

I have nothing but respect and admiration for warriors,

And to be honest, I'm one of the rare people immune to PTSD, I've seen some ****, but instead of breaking I became more... well, plenty accuse me of being psychopathic

This being said, my empathy levels are high. It's a terrible thing when someone is traumatized to such a powerful extent.

Whether or not the war is just or necessary has nothing to do with it, all war is the same in the fact that bad things are going to happen.

You have to appreciate that risk when you enter one of the branches of military, but I think a lot of people are naive about it--they have no clue what their in for.

Personally, I just want the world at peace, or at the very least for the U.S. to stay out of other countries problems. Let them rot. We shouldn't have to sacrifice our own people. In the end war will just become useless violence and meaningless bloodshed.

If by machine you mean technology, and I don't even know why I'm answering since you're probably a pussy troll looking for attention, everything from knives to bow and arrows were technology. There is no difference.

Fighting is for killing. People tend to forget that. Everyone says a soldiers purpose is to protect, and that's a nice sentiment and partly true, but it's about fighting and yes, killing.

War has enemies, plenty of people get caught up in the crossfire: But that is a part of the nature of war. And **** you, people fight for a reason: namely insane regimes who do horrible **** to the people of their own country.

Why should we care if other countries are doing horrible **** to their own people?
Think of Cuba, the U.S tried multiple times to eliminate Castro and failed each time, and only accomplished killing men and women under the power of a pretty good leader.
The U.S also took over the Philippines for no reason and just ended up ******* the **** out of the country and leaving.
Getting into WW2 was pointless at the time, it ended up being good, sure, but it was completely pointless at the time.

Now about "technology" at least with lesser technologies I.E. bows, swords, knives.
Those had "honor" they gave the enemy a chance to fight back. But now with the pussy-ass drones they're wiping out everyone in mile radius's from "intel".
They're sitting behind their computers controlling a huge metal death machine from a whole different continent, killing a huge amount of innocents while looking for ONE MAN.

Ugh.

The death of civilians is a symptom of war. I've already said war becomes meaningless. But that never means it's purposeless. Lives have been lost, but lives have also been saved, in all manner of likely hood.

Your examples have little basis, geopolitically there were reasons for every one of those operations, but I can already tell you're probably not... how do I put this nicely; I don't have time to get on your level.

The evidence is in your own writing. You're only understanding one side of the argument, and as such I have no place wasting my time with you. I've acknowledge both ends, and if you read my original comment you would understand.

"Reasons" now we're getting into the opinionated part of the argument.
Look, if you choose to believe that war is just and that sitting behind computers controlling death machines accidentally killing civilians is okay.
Fine believe that. But even you must admit that although war is usually unnecessary, even from a geopolitical point of view.
Things like late WW2 was completely necessary for the good of mankind. While invading Iraq for their oil was so stupid it makes the U.S look like greedy sons of bitches, which is pretty much what we've turned into.

The truth is that the U.S government has been "brain-washing" its people for decades.
A lot of those "enemies" we're killing are just random people who look different, have different beliefs, or they have a resource that the U.S wants and doesn't have enough money left to pay for.
Those civilians die every day while you sit at your computer, in your heated house all run by oil at some point.
Oil taken by force from those people. Oil taken because the U.S is a monster and the soldiers they train are turned into monsters.
The truth is that most of the wars we fight and most of the people we kill, are completely and utterly pointless decisions.

It's called basic military training. :3 They intentionally put you in high-stress situations and watch how you react. Though, I can't say that it's very effective.

How do you propose you mentally train someone to be shot at, see their friends die in front of them, and innocent women and children caught in the crossfire though?

It is sad, war veterans have the bad luck that they have survived, but they suffer from the horror of war where there friends die next to them somewhere far away from home where the could have a nice live, making a family, getting a job, watching how there kids raise up in times of peace.

But they have to fight for something, the fight for the government, not for there people.

No matter what they say war is not the solution.
Not for freedom and not for peace.
