They tell me the longer you spend on tour you can question orders and become defiant. And that sooner or later killing doesn't make sense. A friend of mine survived a fierce battle with the Taliban where 75% of his company died. The stories he tells me are out of this world. He says he likes me because I have some idea of what happens in wartime and that I am not ignorant like regular civilians. I think its because I work with a lot of veterans. The s**t that happens is out of this world. A lot of the press filters it out. I remember I saw he had an army backpack at university and I had a Hijabi t-shirt on. I went up to him with a lot of joy and said I love hijabis.
And I remember you were in Afghanistan to install cell towers.
And then I thought about it.
More than likely used to track Taliban.
I sometimes ask do you ever regret killing.
They say we can't think about it a lot because if we do, we start to have a lot of demons.
And that military training is designed to reduce empathy and not to think just react so you can kill.
I have a friend an Iranian friend in SK who got her PHD in battery chemical engineering. I might visit when I get my passport.
So, are you for the Tea Party or against it? If not, what political party are you? Not to be nosy, I just take interest in what political views people have. I am a conservative/independent. More right wing.
