Separating the War from the Troops

weather: raining
outside: 10°C
mood: contemplative
It's somewhat shocking to me that people have a such a hard time with separating the soldiers from the war. People really do equate them... I don't know what to say, I'm not even from a military family, I have no military background and I've always understood this.

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.
