    knowing the history and strategies of european hegemony. knowing the history of europeans conquoring strategies. knowing that they have , still, and always will use people from the group their "conquoring" to fight the battle for them. it urks me when i see so many blacks joing this military. yeah i know their strugling , they need a check, its paying 4 college blah blah blah. i knew of a man who was homeless so he enlisted, i overstand the reasons behind that but does that make it right?

    the u.s. would not have the man power necessary to "take over" if it were not for the large # of aa's/latinos in the military. even in iraq where they are using other iraqis to fight 4 them. this is an age old problem, people who can only see money so they join forces with those whom are destroying their homes and peoples. i live in va beach, the military is big here. while driving past the naval base the other day i found it depressing the amout of aa soldiers driving into the base. many of these soldiers are voting 4 bush (so they say) will we ever learn???

    ive read posts where former military blks supported both gulf wars saying its necessary to kill and get killed countless iraqis and u.s. people over controlling oil prices. rather than switching to diesel or electroni/gasoline vehicles, or coming up with a new energy all together ( they say a # of scientists working on the latter have been found dead latley).

    when will we stop doing the white mans job 4 hi? is that not a huge reason 4 the condition of this world today??

    peace world

    Blacks are in the military for the same reason why Blacks are being taken in by D-1A colleges: We are bigger, better, stronger, and faster than anyone!

    if we r going to complain about this gov, and their foreign policy we should stop assisting them. there are many ways to get paid up in here with out helping the u.s. murder the world.

    it used to be guns and rum,now adays its tuition and mortgage. so if there was ever a rebelion or uprising in the u.s.(amongst aa's)...should these troops help put an end to that?

    When you are struggling to feed yourself & your family, you will do almost anything! The military does offer to pay for your college tuition & offers opportunities which are unavailable to the majority of black people. For many blacks, they are unable to land a job before they join the military. For this reason I don't criticize their decisions to join. I do think the military is taking advantage of them; however, unless an alternative can be provided...who are we to critize someone who is making an honest (legal) effort to support their families?

    I like that attitude. It is defintely time to ban together, and do what he have to do in the name of Survival. God is behind us, because we are the blessed ones here. Every single one of us will count. Get rid of the ignoring eachother, and get to know eachother because in the beginning, we were all family, we all went through the up's and down's together. No matter how much LESS you know someone, you and that brotha or sistah still are going down TOGETHER! Because we are close like that. We were before we were shipped over to this country. Our tasks are to be united. Without unity, there is NOTHING we can do on behalf of surviving these 'disasters' in this country.

    I really never understood why a black person would join the military. They have attempted to recruit me numerous times and I just laugh at them and tell them "you must be kidding if you think I'll serve this country". I guess when you see that many people do need what they can get no matter how they get it, you sort of understand. I just couldn't allow myself to be pimped for the sake of a dollar and free college. It's funny that it's so easy to go die for them but they make you jump through hoops to get a decent job. Makes me sick.

    i wonder how the shock and awe quadripaleagic men, women, and children of iraq feel. but hey their (aa service people) getting free tuition so who cares.

    was it justified for the chiefs who sold their own in to slave trades to boost their kingdoms economy?

    they are traing troops in chad to combat terrorism, so when they invade afrika will that money be worth it? will those aa troops be heroes or puppets on a string?
