|If you've never served in the military than you can't criticize those who have.
This line,which I've heard here and elsewhere, is bullshit. I don't need to wear a uniform to know that willfully invading foreign nations that pose no threat to you and killing their people with bombs, bullets, and drones is wrong. And just to be clear I consider anyone who enlisted during the Iraq War to be guilty of willfully invading a country that poses no threat to your own. They knew there was a high likelihood of them being sent there. They are just as guilty as the congressman who voted for that war. I don't need to have worn a uniform to know that everyone who participated in, ordered, or covered up acts of torture is scum who need to be arrested.
I don't need to enlist to know any of that, in fact knowing that is a big reason why I will never serve in the military even if they institute a draft. I would rather be thrown in jail than kill people simply because someone orders me to.
