    I thought it would be nice to see what people are doing/want to do. So please, if you wish post hwta your job is or what you want to be or training to be. And maybe Why?!

    Mine:

    I want to be in the REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers)
    in the British Military, i want to be a Army Vehicle Mechanic or an RAF aircraft mechanic. I think it is a nice job and it's better then being cannon fodder. And when i leave the army i have a skill i can use instead of just being able to shoot a weapon.


    Love is not and item, you cannot buy it. How about loving me and maybe you can get some back?! - To my Ex , lol

    Don't join the military for Gods sake man. What differenence are you to a man when you stand in front of him defending his house and family when he has a gun and you murder him compared to you breaking into a mans house and doing the same? How in the same way is your action justified? In the eyes of my father, there is no difference and the same sin will be held against you, even though if you do repent you will be washed of those sins. I say to thee, do not harm this man or his family wherever you find him, rather embrace him and his family and love him, and ye with him and his family and your family will dwell and reside in the house of my father in the Kingdom of Heaven forever.

    That's something the J man would say...

    Please don't join the armed forces. Why can't people solve differences with words rather than with guns.

    I'm unemployed. Its the way of the economy at the moment and I do not wish to toil in a horrible factory like I have done. There is no love and respect for those that you work for, but then again there isn't anywhere. Do thy not think it best that man stand by man and brother by brother and say to these toilers. No! We shall not waste our lives for you for our sins that we feed with your money, that which you money you give us for our toil keeps us to forever sin. Lo! I say to thee! Glorious is He who stands in the face of danger and fear and says to it: " You will never be with me and my family, for I and they dwell within the Lord.

    Yeah, bad joke. Divine Brown was the hooker they caught Hugh Grant with. If you say "Hugh grant?" I will hurt my cat.


    Joking of course

    That's why the British Army has rules of engagement. They don't kill people defending their house and family. They kill people who are planting explosives with the intent to kill those of a different religion. As to solving differences with words, go have a chat with an extremist Islamic terrorist and explain the Bible's values. I'll stick with the rifle route.

    DementisVir, I highly encourage military service. RAF aircraft mechanic is a great, highly technical job if you can pass the security clearance. You'll probably get a signing bonus, a free education and work experience, not to mention money for college later (I'm a little fuzzy on college offerings in the British military). Vehicle mechanic is a great, high demand job too, just make sure you're willing to work. There's always something to do in the motor-pool. How many grease-monkeys have the opportunity to work on a 62 ton Challenger tank?

    As long as you maintain motivation and take advantage of what they're offering you, it's not a bad life.

    Just remember K, if you come back from active service with no hands and an eye missing, you'll still have to stand in line behind the illegal immigrants, for NHS facilities, do you really believe the UK or any other piece of dirt is wort dying for?

    If you have a gun use it to force the politicians to fight amongst themselves especially after they robbed the ordinary citizen blind.

    Don't be a bloody fool, all while we support war by joining up you are perpetuating it.

    British armed forces should be held in reserve for the defence of Britain NOT for the oil wars or defending one bunch of sand monkeys against another.

    In summary, illegal immigrants are socially beneath the disabled, untermensch sand monkeys should off each other and stop being such an eyesore on the tele, and the UK is nothing more than a piece of dirt, rather than the people who call that dirt home. How poetic.

    The extremist in their own eyes are still defending their home, who they are and their families or they'll go to hell. So their still defending their homes. If the UK and US hadn't pissed them off in the first place, you wouldn't be under attack. If bullets in your direction were met with something other than your own bullets, maybe they'll stop firing and you'll be a brilliant example for the next generation...

    Look at all those who have fought and died over thousands of years. Their only lasting victories are borders of countries, and those countries are corrupt and degraded as the world is. The world is a prison, and all you do is keep it in control. Your not a solider, your a murdering patrol warden who shoots anyone who steps out of line.

    And don't argue with me on this one, I've seen it, I know the outcomes of war and I know what its like to fight war. NOBODY WINS. NEVER. Not even freedom...

    Is that why you have a bug for your avatar? So if they come a knockin' they'll think your nearly akin to them? They say the best way to stop zombies coming back for you is get out of the dirt and pretend to be one of them...

    Alrighty, so let me understand this enlightened world-view. 1. If they don't fight, they go to hell. Their misguided perception puts them in the right. 2. Contact with an isolationist society, "pissing them off," gives them license to put a plane through a building or bomb a bus station. 3. Returning bullets with words will make them stop firing. On that last point, i'm in agreeance. While it is common practice for militant extremists to shoot and mutilate corpses, the novelty will soon wear off and they'll get bored.

    Call us what you want you ingrate. We don't the need approval of the weak and morally deficient who stand by and allow men to do wrong. I'm not sure what kind of upbringing promotes such a sheepish mindset that appeases killers and feels any warlike opposition to evil is tryannic, but I'd be embarrassed to call you my countryman.

    Contact with an isolationist society,
    Don't tell me you think the US is Isolationist?

    I fail to understand why the US has to invade every ideology that is alien to them (unless of course the opposition is the same size like the old USSR, or China)

    Only picking on people smaller than you was called bullying at my school, and as for the the airplanes into buildings, you handled that atrociosly.

    All you had to do in September 2001 was drop a small local thermo-nuclear device on Kandaha then deny it came from you, and insist some local terrorists were playing with fire. A similar but conventional action in Libya (dropping a bomb in Kadaffis') garden shut him up at no further cost to American Lives.

    If you had BLitzed Kandahar nobody would fuck with you now, but every terrorist and his dog want's to prod now.

    How small minded you are. You have no way of understandong how your enemy thinks have you? Idiot. Carry on killing people and regret the day you meet me. Murderer.

    We don't the need approval of the weak and morally deficient who stand by and allow men to do wrong.
    Its a lot harder to live up to morals and ideals than to fight for them. The weak and the cowards are the ones who have more sense than any of you. If a coward of the 'enemy' and a coward of the 'allies' met, they'd drink and share laughter and show that war is pointless in doing so. If the world were full of cowards and the weak, there'd be no murder or war.

    I'd be embarrassed to call you my countryman.
    When are you morons going to learn we are all human and share the same goddamn planet? Men like you have fought, mained and killed a collection of billions in the past, and what has it done? NOTHING.... Killing each other for millenia's and all they are are dead men in the sand and so are their kingdoms and treasures. As you will be. Your a spec in the universe and so is your army, and that spec was destructive.

    Your the fool who trusts his life to a weapon. A man who kills instead of giving life, a destroyer. You are the same as the 'enemy' that you kill. Don't you see that? They cannot either because they see the same way...

    Don't you see? You and your enemy are the same person, with the same opinion of each other, doing the same acts, to destroy the same 'evil'.

    Idiot.

    Detonate a nuclear weapon in Kandahar, a city of 450,000 people, and blame it on terrorists? That's comic book super-villain caliber evil. You have lost the moral and intellectual credentials necessary to carry on this debate. Why don't you sit the next round out?

    I make it my business to understand my enemies' religion, the history of his people, I read his own words and I am in the process of learning his language. Please don't make the mistake of thinking I am an idiot because I have a different opinion than you. I'm not brilliant by any measure, but i'm no dolt.

    You just don't get it do you?

    There are no sides in war, there is no right, only who is left. I will not invade the land of others out of respect, unlike you.

    Talking my son out of joining the Army is greatly appreciated thank you

    It is the last thing I would want him to do, I didn't raise a child to become a Military pawn to promote Capitalism but then I can't stand in his way and stop him doing what he really wants to do....can I?

    As was stated above there have always been men’s armies, which at this stage – we probably need them more than people with the right ideas realize. I’m not someone who supports war, killing and violence but it’s what our world is these days.


    And if I were to suggest a reason I would say that even though we developed a mind and are “superior” over animals, our nature dose have some level of violence in it. Evidence of why we need to have enforcers of the law (both sovereign and international) is that there are always people out there who do not care.

    An Garda Siochana, the Irish police force was introduced as an unarmed force when the 26 county Irish republic was formed. But despite the fact that the police are unarmed here in Ireland, we still have gangs, drug dealers and in recent times more terrorist activity in the North that the garda need to be watchful off.


    A few years back a garda on his bike followed a suspect car travelling in Dublin. When he stopped behind them in traffic, he was shot point blank, with some shotgun. The garda was unarmed. Just last week, a young garda was struck by a car in the line of duty; two young lads who had stolen a car. I’d say they are currently regretting they ever took that car.


    My point is that people out there are violent (first example) and they do stupid things when they know no better (second). The same is true on a international scale, so we do need some enforcers.
    Stumble on through life.
    Feel free to correct any false information, which unknown to me, may be included in my posts. (also - let this be a disclaimer)
