Army men are not heroes
Kissing his unborn child just before he goes off to kill children and their parents in a foreign country because, you know, being brown/non american/muslim/anything the USA deems a threat to their greedy existence is cause for them to believe they’re terrorists. How lovely <3<3<3
It annoys me that I see pictures of Army men all over tumblr and everyone just gushes and falls apart with pride at seeing them. People have created this illusions that by simply being in the army you are a brave, selfless individual who stands for all things good in the world. Bullshit.
Seriously, when will people get that having an army uniform does not automatically make you a hero? You are nothing but a pawn in a game of mass destruction and you have willingly chosen to be a part of it. You’re only special in the sense that you think you’re doing good by obeying orders without thinking about them. I’m sorry, but it’s true.
Stop making them out to be heroes simply for their decision to join the army. Stop acting as if their PTSD wasn’t self-inflicted, something they knew was a more than probable chance of happening before they went out into the field. Stop acting like they’re heroes, they’re drones.
