Glad to see Jiigzz is still here. Switching back and forth from raw numbers to percentages as it suited peoples' arguments broke my brain.
Which is a shame (but expected). Militaries play key roles in more than just warfare but get no attention whatsoever100% corrupt military is a stretch. You’re on to something in parts of what you said. To say we are out there solely to feed the military industrial complex or for oil is incorrect. The military takes part in counter piracy, anti human trafficking, surveillance, and assists in training of foreign militaries to better snuff out problems in their own countries. Our civil affairs presence in developing countries is huge and unfortunately gets little to no attention as compared to us dropping warheads on foreheads.
