Or maybe you were born in a cushy part of the planet and are ignorant of just how much evil there is elsewhere in the world? That good people in our country have to do bad things so that you can sit at home typing sanctimonious stuff on the internet? Just asking.
And just to add, it is noteworthy that recently an american serviceman publicly stated that the reason that 18 veterans on average self terminate every day in the states, is not because they were over there helping Iraqis. They top themselves because they know they were committing atrocities.
What illegal ground forces are now on the ground in Syria? The information is on the net. You could start with RT or the wikileaks stratfor material itself. You wouldn't even need to leave the comfort of your own home
I don't think it will happen but it is possible, that in the not too distant future, the current crop of children will be turning around on their parents and saying, "Just exactly WTF were you doing nothing daddy when all the info was on the net?"
A million years ago the state propaganda was "What did you do in the war Daddy" to get men out the door. Now the propaganda seems to be to get the men to stay in door's and just watch footie and gameshows.
