we are the horizon...

Technically the Roman Empire fell when Islam came around. When the Germanic tribes invaded they restored the empire after cleansing it

2018-09-04 18:48:02 UTC  

The military is such a mindless bunch of conformists to whoever is in power. I really think that if we went head-to-head with the Russians right now we would be sent back to the locker room right quick. I have heard rumors that in the German military, there is a secret oath that many of the officers take with their hands on the old Imperial flag. I hope that's true.

2018-09-04 18:48:09 UTC  

The Navy is so poorly organized and motivated in my opinion. Cousin just graduated Navy basic and the organization of the whole thing was a shitshow.

2018-09-04 18:48:23 UTC  

Rome fell into degeneracy, mass immigration and their army being replaced by outsiders.

2018-09-04 18:48:34 UTC  

I find Rome analogies useful, but like any analogy it isn't a perfect parallel.

2018-09-04 18:49:02 UTC  

Yeah, a civilization that old and one today won't be perfect parallels but they are sure good as examples of what not to do.

2018-09-04 18:49:11 UTC  

History is a parable, if we will learn from it.

2018-09-04 18:49:25 UTC  

doesn't seem like we have, or will.

2018-09-04 18:50:14 UTC  

@Sam Anderson navy is one of the worst

2018-09-04 18:50:54 UTC  

@OMGDwayne no one would want to fight the russians lol

2018-09-04 18:50:56 UTC  

We could use a good ass kicking. It may drive all those who shouldn't be in the military out.

2018-09-04 18:51:18 UTC  

Military is way too cushy right now.

2018-09-04 18:51:41 UTC  

Just a way to pay for school and retire early for most ...

2018-09-04 18:51:41 UTC  

It's mostly just pog jobs that are cushy

2018-09-04 18:51:55 UTC  

A good ass kicking is all we have been getting for the last 20 years. And then we only fund the cushy benefits more so we can get more people in.

2018-09-04 18:51:56 UTC  

tell my friends who went to war that... (too cushy)

2018-09-04 18:51:58 UTC  

And pay for your sex change of course.

2018-09-04 18:52:09 UTC  

Being a grunt or a pilot or in spec ops is still really difficult

2018-09-04 18:52:24 UTC  

Yes, the Roman Empire was a collection of distinct nations. They would have been better advised to simply have a united Italy. Back then they would have been able to whip all comers. But also back then, the SOP was to conquer as many of your neighbors as possible. It kind of worked even though it was unstable. But after all, the Greek Ptolemaic dynasty ruled Egypt for hundreds of years. Back then I don't think they had a whole lot of situational awareness though. The ancients were sort of "go for it" types.

2018-09-04 18:52:27 UTC  

Too many people join simply for the GI bill.

2018-09-04 18:52:42 UTC  

Those are who I run into

2018-09-04 18:53:20 UTC  

A huge portion of the medical people I work with are puggy military

2018-09-04 18:53:42 UTC  

In it just for the payout.

2018-09-04 18:54:39 UTC  

But like the Jews, I'm sure it's "not all".

2018-09-04 18:54:40 UTC  

The romans and americans are basically incomparable, their society was built on martial might from the ground up

2018-09-04 18:55:17 UTC  

They went out to conquer shit to win personal glory and prestige, not to some high minded loyalty to Rome or whatever

2018-09-04 18:55:38 UTC  

^now that's the truth

2018-09-04 18:55:46 UTC  


2018-09-04 18:55:47 UTC  

Americans on the otherhand don't really have anything that drives them

2018-09-04 18:55:53 UTC  

Other than like money I guess

2018-09-04 18:56:23 UTC  

The Russians have super high moral, and their weapons procurement is mission oriented. Do any of you guys ever read the Saker in his Vineyard. He is disgusting Communist apologist, but he is totally in tune with the fact that the U.S. is the irrational aggressor all over the world. The U.S. neoCons are total psychos. He is also a keen military analyst who knows the team rankings among the world's militaries. What scares him to death is that at some point the Anglo-Zionist Empire will be backed into a corner where they will simply lash out with everything they have. Desperate losers are very, very dangerous.

2018-09-04 18:56:30 UTC  

We used to but definitely not anymore

2018-09-04 18:56:36 UTC  

Perhaps I wouldn't have a grudge against the GI bill seekers if I respected them

2018-09-04 18:57:49 UTC  

The russians play up the anglo saxon dominance thing a lot

2018-09-04 18:57:55 UTC  

In my work place it is minority imports and girls that have no fight in them that join.

2018-09-04 18:57:57 UTC  

It's not that dire

2018-09-04 18:58:21 UTC  

At least not with drumpf in charge

2018-09-04 18:58:27 UTC  

Rome had an interesting dynamic around its society where they looked down on merchants to an extent. The tax collecting class that served in the upper echelons of the military (The Equites aka Calvary) were seen as lesser than those of noble blood.

2018-09-04 18:59:11 UTC  

Crassus was the richest man to ever exist and he died being a bitter loser cause he never won any glory as a great general

2018-09-04 18:59:26 UTC  

The merchant class was looked down on by most western societies until relatively recently right?
