The real deal on Joining the Military

Interesting video by Before you Enlist showing discrepancy between what the military offers you to convince you in joining them and what you will get when you come back (If you were lucky).

Its not meant to tell that war in Iraq is bad or good nor but to push young people to re-think about their personal choice of joining the military.

* Collage funds
They will promise you to get enough money for your collage but on average the Montgomery GI Bill will only cover 1/2 the cost of a public collage and 1/5 the cost of a private collage.

And the other interesting fact is that almost 1/2 of Montgomery GI Bill participants never receive funding.

* Military will help you to get better life when you come back (If you were lucky)
but according toe VA estimates on any given night 200,000 veterans are homeless, you will learn how to clean weapons and floor but you will have nothing that would help you in getting job when you are back (if you were lucky)

* They will tell you anything to let you sign the contract, they will tell you war is just like a video game! but you will be bount by the enlistment contract but the military is not, they can change anything at any time int the contract.

Since the start of the Iraq war the Army has extended the enlistment of more than 50,000 troops through Stop-Loss

I don't want to ruin it for you, watch this video and you will understand what I'm talking about.

  1. I enlisted in the US Marines when I was 18. They broke every promise. No complaints from me :)

    I was in the infantry, so I learned absolutely nothing that was of any value in the private sector. What they don't say in that article, is that being ex-military (or at least, ex-Marine) is pretty damned prestigious in the US. You won't find anyone else in their early 20s that gets shown the kind of respect an ex-Marine gets, here in America.

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
