Keep them out of pointless wars in the first place. But hey, don't let me stop people from getting triggered and sending other people's family into war.

Soldiers sign up to fight wars. They didn't sign up to NOT go to war. This isn't Vietnam, there is no conscription. Categorically saying you are Anti-War or Pro-War is stupid. Sometimes, there are good reasons for going to war, other times there aren't. It only really becomes important to support the troops WHEN they are at war and afterwards. Saying you support them by being anti-war is as anti-sense as saying you support firemen by being anti-fire.

This is the 21st Century, a rapidly evolving and widespread world that necessitates projecting power in many theaters at once and a finger in every pie.

The big difference, Germany was invading other countries, just like the US is doing now. Imperialism is not justifiable!

No, the BIG difference is now we live in a global world and it is necessary to keep a finger in every pie. To do otherwise IS to Neville Chamberlain the situation.
And of course imperialism is justified. America first, disloyal one.

you sound like a German Nazi! That is the same language they used to convince the German population that genocide is good. I am loyal to America, not the puppet government controlled by central bankers, and the military industrial complex. You are well programmed to worship government, the patriot act, NDAA, the war on terror, is a war on the constitution, and the people who defend it. Wake up!

The foundation of the American government was to keep government power limited. To say anyone is disloyal to government because they criticize the government, actually is un-American.

Ahh, the Nazi charge. Thanks for confirming that you are an idiot, so I don't waste any more time talking to your delusional self. Your screen name is well chosen. Knowing you're out there, I will now invest in tinfoil stocks.

"Trump bombing Syria without provocation is an act of war and a war crime according to the Geneva Conventions
A declaration of war at one time, "was" supposed to require an act of Congress unless we were under immediate threat. It seems we did away with that over the course of the last two administrations. And while Congress did support the invasion into 2003 Iraq, the reasons they voted for war were based on obvious lies which no one was held accountable for, and for which a serious investigation was never even conducted by the government nor the media which sold the public on the lies to begin with.
At this point we are a lawless nation by design. Those behind the scenes with enough money to control both political parties and the media, instruct them to serve the interests of the plutocracy itself with no real discussion of who is making these decisions or why -- for this our politicians and media industry are handsomely rewarded at the expense of US taxpayers and those we impose on around the world.
Notice instead of questioning Trump's decision to bomb Syria, major news networks praised him. They could just as easily have created a public uproar for war crimes committed with the bombing of Syria, but the fact is the press is a vital part of the apparatus manipulating the public to serve the interests of the deep state establishment's agenda, which in this case is a combination of continuing Israel's near two decades old PNAC wars and regime changes, while also clearing the way for an oil pipeline which al-Assad doesn't intend to allow. Then there's the profits generated in the weapons and military contracting industries which all these various players are invested in and profit from directly.
This is much bigger than just Trump. Our political-economic machine that's near $20 trillion in debt and dependent on war to keep people working -- is a monster created for the specific intention of wreaking military and economic havoc on the world to serve the greed and power driven dictates of the Western establishment cabal."Mark Weiser

"So don’t let the talking heads on TV dupe you into thinking that “doing nothing about Assad” is some sort of strange suggestion. Tom Ritchford said it best when describing US foreign policy:
Imagine you have a friend who makes a habit of announcing that people are sick, and then performing surgery on them.
While your friend does have the world’s largest collection of surgical tools, it uniformly works out badly for his patients. Always the surgery turns out worse than the disease, and much of the time it turns out that the patient wasn’t even sick to start with?—?because your friend has no interest in doing diagnoses or really any form of medicine except surgery.
Now your friend has announced that someone else is sick, and a few minutes later has them strapped to the operating table and is preparing the knives. But when you justifiably express dismay, you are accused of wanting to “sit back and do nothing”.
It doesn’t work that way, America. You don’t get to decide who is sick and who needs surgery. That is not your place. Yes, it is that simple. No, it is not complicated." https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/the-situation-in-syria-is-not-complicated-heres-what-you-need-to-know-3f007290b49f

War can be controlled by the government, whereas fire can't be.

You didn't think it through. The purpose of a soldier is to fight a war, the purpose of a fireman is to fight a fire.

What do the soldiers in Switzerland do, then? Switzerland is largely known for being a neutral country. I know they were given money from the Nazis, but they didn't participate in the war alongside them.
Another thing: firemen actually save lives, whereas soldiers end up taking their own.

Protect the Pope.
And? The Country wouldn't have any soldiers if not for the possibility of a fight. As to why they ar primarily defensive? Because Switzerland doesn't have a finger in every pie and is insignificant on the world's stage because of that.
I am a vet, and I know of way more fireman who started fires than vets who took their own life.

Vets don't directly take their own life. They kind of enlist in an activity which involves taking lives.

I agree that war always brings needless casualties and hardships to our troops, their families and the innocent civilians, we should always make sure to take every possible step to avoid war. However, I don't believe in being anti-war, the worst thing we did for our troops in vietnam was protesting against the war and the troops fighting in it after it had started. Once we are committed to a war we should be supportive of our government and our soldiers fighting in it.

do you understand how the Gulf of Tonkin incident has been proven to be a false flag orchestrated by the USA, to garner public support for war there? Guess what, the Vietnam was a pointless war! https://www.usni.org/magazines/navalhistory/2008-02/truth-about-tonkin
