Pimps in Our Midst – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 8, 2018

Do military recruiters tell recruits that they will be defending other countries instead of the United States?

When you see a young service person thank them then tell them not to die for Israel, Saudi Arabia and ExxonMobil.

I’m talking about pimps, but not the sleazy, flashy, abusive kind who solicit those willing to hire themselves out to perform illicit acts for paying customers. Worse. The ones who look and act respectable while they solicit those willing to hire themselves out to perform illicit acts for paying customers.

The customers in this case being the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. And those hiring themselves out being soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.

Someone has to say it so it might as well be me. I’ve said worse…

Military recruiters are the middlemen who help to facilitate this. They are the pimps in our midst. How else are you going to describe them? They pimp for Uncle Sam. That is their job. They try to convince recruits that military service is honorable. They extol the pay and benefits of military service. They do everything but tell the truth about war and the military.
