This is indentured servitude. This is only a way for the united states to continue to increase military spending. Taxpayer money is already wasted when over 50% of discretionary spending goes to the military. The United States government isn't sending soldiers out to fight for democratic values. They're sending soldiers in order to increase their natural resources and complete their imperialistic needs. Serving in the military does not make you American. That is not the core definition of being American. There are plenty of cases of soldiers who commit crimes during their duty so being in the military does not somehow make you more American.
