Serving Your Country

In what universe does participating in an illegal war to kill innocent men women and children one the other side of the world who pose no threat count as serving your country? It counts as self-serving sadism. It counts as serving Xe, (née Blackdown), Carlyle, Halliburton, BAE, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Raytheon, General Electric… but it does not serve the country. If that is serving your country, then the Nazis who manned the gas ovens at Auschwitz also served their country. The lie has been repeated so often, most Americans believe it.
