    Fake. According to every recruiting poster, sign, brochure and tv commercial, our soldiers are women or black men.

    This assymetrical warfare where we usually kick ass has really done a number on how these guys treat threats. He's very lucky. But at urban warfare ranges if you can be seen you can be killed. Gotta keep your head down and act as if someone has a scope on you. Because sometimes they do.

    Photos like this were used for years to represent the Nazi "arrogance" and lack of respect for the danger when fighting in Stalingrad. Don't stand up except to run to cover.

    That's because all the people fighting are Black, Brown or poor White.

    No rich White boys to be seen.

    Ok, you got me. One rich White boy.

    In all seriousness, there was a time when fighting wars was something the whole country engaged in. Now we've got 1% of our population fighting the wars and the rest of the country is texting on their iPhones.
