some military jobs require really high IQ

2019-01-04 18:43:44 UTC  

I've looked at salary listings

2019-01-04 18:43:56 UTC  

being a sniper in a tense situation does require a lot of brain speed

2019-01-04 18:44:00 UTC  

I mean, if you're like an engineer or something

2019-01-04 18:44:06 UTC  

Quick reflexes isn't intelligence ngl

2019-01-04 18:44:13 UTC  

it's not about reflexes

2019-01-04 18:44:18 UTC  

it's about quick thinking

2019-01-04 18:44:21 UTC  

kinda is though

2019-01-04 18:44:22 UTC  

calculation involved

2019-01-04 18:44:22 UTC  

You just described “higher up[s] in the military” as requiring only the ability to listen to propaganda and pull a trigger

2019-01-04 18:44:30 UTC  

Thinking about spilling some civilian's guts

2019-01-04 18:44:47 UTC  

do you hate all military or only the good guys?

2019-01-04 18:44:52 UTC  

Eh, at that rank I guess you're commissioning propaganda and ordering teenagers to their death

2019-01-04 18:45:07 UTC  

You're implying there's good guys in the military

2019-01-04 18:45:20 UTC  

are all militaries bad?

2019-01-04 18:45:27 UTC  

Especially America's

2019-01-04 18:45:40 UTC  

you hate all of em and especially the good guys

2019-01-04 18:45:53 UTC  

>America

2019-01-04 18:45:54 UTC  

>Good guys

2019-01-04 18:45:58 UTC  

You, uh

2019-01-04 18:45:59 UTC  

that's right

2019-01-04 18:45:59 UTC  

do realize

2019-01-04 18:46:08 UTC  

US troops killed 600,000+ Iraqi civlians

2019-01-04 18:46:10 UTC  

civilians

2019-01-04 18:46:19 UTC  

we permit torture

2019-01-04 18:46:27 UTC  

there's plenty of unreported rape in the military...

2019-01-04 18:46:28 UTC  

assault...

2019-01-04 18:46:35 UTC  

minimal punishments, if any, for those caught...

2019-01-04 18:46:39 UTC  

civilians weren't killed intentionally and most iraq civilian numbers are inflated

2019-01-04 18:46:51 UTC  

we permit torture to save our own lives

2019-01-04 18:46:56 UTC  

Eh, yeah, butchering an entire town with a machine gun is usually

2019-01-04 18:46:58 UTC  

not because we think torture is moral

2019-01-04 18:46:58 UTC  

pretty accidental

2019-01-04 18:47:00 UTC  

I agree

2019-01-04 18:47:05 UTC  

I mean, who hasn't done that once or twice?

2019-01-04 18:47:07 UTC  

c'mon

2019-01-04 18:47:34 UTC  

Also, torture's ineffective, people'll just tell you what you want to hear more or less

2019-01-04 18:47:36 UTC  

no one did that

2019-01-04 18:47:37 UTC  

plus, we kinda

2019-01-04 18:47:41 UTC  

use it against civilians

2019-01-04 18:47:52 UTC  

that's a seperate argument
