I think Noah acknowledges that. I think he's also cognizant of the fact that most of the wars we've fought in recently have been bull****. If you care so deeply about these "kids" don't send them to fight in wars for private interests. Hell, if you love them so much, try giving a damn about them before they're compelled to join the military to provide for themselves and a family.

If we didn't send soldiers elsewhere we'd have many many more 9-11s here

Why? 9-11 was a byproduct of our interventionalism in that region of the world. You don't buy the nonsense about it happening because "they hate our freedom", do you?

If it wasn't for the is military they likely would not exist either. The is military is THE force that's keeps peace and order. Believe me if there was no us military things would be way different

If you are a public figure who makes incredible earnings you should be first in line to do the minimum to support the countries military. I'm not sure Noah would be as happy in a concentration camp somewhere

Conflict would simply manifest itself in a different manner. So instead of national militaries vying for power, you have several guerilla type forces doing so on a micro-scale all across the world.

Time for those that want our enlisted men and women to fight in one war after another, to honor the troops by taking their place on the battlefield, or send your kids instead.

the way out is for legislation to be passed to bring about two years of mandatory military service for a *defensive* purposes only, with citizens between the ages of 18 and 26 guarding and protecting our borders and ports.

this is not the same thing as a draft or conscription into an *offensive* army fighting wars overseas, but it will benefit the country and those that contribute in this manner, with college scholarships.

someone like joakim noah would have the choice of not serving because if his multiple passports, but then he would likely have to leave the country to find work were he between the age of 18 and 26.

you don't have to be a patriot to serve the country in this manner, but you do have to be a responsible citizen.

Briggs,

History teaches us War's are usually about money and usually those who gave were on the lower socio economic scale.
Trump is easy to insist we need to win and pound respect abroad.
"boots on the ground" means sending ones son to battle. For trump, its could be at his whim.

So imagine where Iran disrespects "America" and your daughter is sent into battle over an altercation because the american president ordered it.
And he can.

So when you kiss your daughter and wish her a good nite, think about under what military conflict you would accept sacrificing her?
Because a narcissist was offended? You and your daughter have the same rights as any other US citizen despite your financial success.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-iran-war-threat_us_57d36449e4b06a74c9f4e9c9

Perhaps having military is a necessity but that does not mean was have to abuse it. Honor and sacrifice in the face of tyranny is a noble act. History has taught us most wars are avoidable.
Why not embrace that we should respect life by not having war.
I can empathize with Noah's view that he is uncomfortable with the institution and culture of our military Culture.
Im not in the camp of "No military", but our "leaders" don't have enough skin in the game.
Trump flaunted his deferments and has has been very disrespectful to our veterans.
Im ok with his rights to not participate, its his choice, but this is the guy your voting for?
Many veterans are ok with those exercising americans right to free speech. Its why they fight.
Mandating Patriotism is a very nasty subject.

Anger sells, don't buy!

This is out of order BRIGGS. People supporting their military were responsible for concentration camps in the first place. What a ****ty dramatic escalation of where grown men decide to eat dinner.

And thousands of soldiers would still be alive if we hadn't sent our soldiers to Iraq and *hundreds of thousands* of Iraqi civilians would be. This idea that our "Defense" Department is wholly good and needs be glorified is out of touch with its actual impact on human beings throughout the world.

But you brought up concentration camps: something invented and executed by militaries. I'll cop to being naive if you admit to having no sense of perspective.

when was the time the US was involved in a military conflict that was fought to protect those values you mention? Korea? Vietnam? Desert Storm? Afghanistan? How critical was the loss of life in those wars to maintain our values and way of life? Your basic answer sucks... doesn't allow for much in the way of another view point. Briggs have you or your children served?

Noah was pretty classy in all his statement and in no way disrespectful.
