Why do people in uniforms turn my stomach?
 I have this problem with people in military uniforms. I'm not sure what causes it. And no, it is not specific to american military personell, in fact I have not been exposed to any of those for a while, since I live in Europe. It applies to uniformed people from anywhere. I just feel a weird kind of jolt in my stomach, like I might be sick, when I walk past one. It sort of applies to military uniforms of all countries, but it seems to be worse if the respective country is involved in some sort of war. Anyone have similar feelings? Its really weird, I can't really explain it?

On a side note: It doesn't seem to be connected with guns. I grew up in the south of USA and we had guns, rifles etc. at my house. I have fired them myself. A person holding a rifle doesn't bother me. Just uniforms.


Most of the DUmmies have the sense to disagree..... including the only decent member

68. Generally, When I Pass By Someone In Uniform, I Feel An Immediate Sense Of Respect.
 I know the courage, convictions and unselfishness it takes to be a soldier. I can't help but respect the heck out of them.

Then there's this exchange:

7. I don't know where you got your attitude towards those in the
 military, but they are hardly "mindless automatons who are trained to follow orders and kill without questioning authority". I suggest that you educate yourself before you start making such broad brush statements.

15. Smedley Butler said the same thing, and in no uncertain terms
 And, as you may know, he was awarded the Medal of Honor twice plus the Brevet Medal as he rose to become the most decorated and highest-ranking Marine of his time. He missed being appointed Commandant of the Corps only because of his politics.

The DUmmy OP should just commit suicide since he clearly doesn't want the protection of people in uniform.

I read that entire thing this morning and thought about bringing it over, but it was such an odd and long thread I decided to pass.  It's worthy for the original post, if anything.

I was reading this thread yesterday, ProudDad is one man I would LOVE to meet in a nice dark alley and show him just what I was trained to do as a US Marine.

There are a few other posters in that thread that just made me shake my head in amazement that some people are like that.
