"We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work."

I’ve really got to start getting more rest…
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
This bugs me so much. Soldiers do have to learn about the culture of the country to which they get deployed actually. And nobody, NO BODY, is more aware of the families that are hurt from invasions than soldiers. People literally kill themselves over it actually. So go fuck yourself and don’t ever blame the soldiers that have had the idea they their mission is vital for freedom shoved down their throat and told to pull the trigger. I dont give a fuck what you think about the war, support the soldiers. Because they go through more emotional shit than you can even begin to imagine and they need all the help they can get.
