Longer Tours Mean More Atrocities

The attraction of the military is it let’s the recruit lord it over others, bully them, torture them, rape them, extort them, even kill them with little chance of repercussion. For military to work, you need extremely strong discipline to counter these tendencies. With familiarity, discipline tends to break down. That is why the longer the tour of duty the more the atrocities.
