US Army

I knew this wasn’t going to be “positive” since it’s a VICE video:

Tough jobs requiring tough decisions when you’re dealing with war.  I’ve seen similar pieces on drone operators, and it always surprises me that it’s almost like they initially assumed they would be exempt from PTSD since they’re not up close to the death and destruction.

I don’t like to get political on this blog (mainly because it’s not something I think a lot about), but I always find it interesting how democrats and Obama enthusiast-cheerleaders in general fully sweep the whole “King of drone strikes” title under the rug like it never happened.

I can sympathize with this guy in the video, however it’s not like he was in a prison camp being forced at gunpoint to fly drones.  Plenty of jobs available in and outside the military that don’t have all that potential for emotional baggage attached.

Thoughts?
