But then again, I have proven Cultural Osmosis abilities.
The military is NO PLACE for individuality and questioning everything (that would be journalism). Individuality is trained out of a soldier from Day 1. There is no other way to get what they need done without doing that. If you have tens of thousands of people all thinking and doing their own thing, it plain does not work.
Whether it is right or wrong for them to be doing something is not for them to decide. They're trained to do it and when the order comes, they do it.
