This guy tells us he joined the Marines at 18 years of age because he wanted to "kill people". He continues on, telling us that his recruiter felt that wanting to kill people is the best reason to join the Marines. This doesn't surprise me too much; but it does make me wonder about how our kids are raised. I do sympathize with the PTSD that can occur after combat. No-one should have to live with that; It's the "kill" mentality that manifest's itself even before some join the military that's disturbing. In this guy's case it kind of makes me feel that some sort of karma is at work here. Certainly terrorists have that same "kill" feeling. It's just sad.
