Why do military members say that if you want to go to war, then the military isn't the right choice for you? Isnt that the point of the army?

    No.  Wanting war is a mental health problem.  Military people may be prepared to fight, but, virtually none of us actually want to.

    It's because in your previous question(s) you talked about wanting to kill people. That makes you a psycho.

    Most members of the military do not want to go to war because they know what horrors war will bring. The good soldiers will only go to war if they have to.

    Wars are only won when the right strategy

    Is used. The army isn't the best 1st move.

    What they are saying is that people who just want to go shoot at people generally aren't a good fit for the military because they are unlikely to have the discipline to follow orders.

    That's one of the reasons why so many of Eddie Gallagher's Seal teammates were angered at Trump pardoning him for war crimes.  They knew he was unstable - going so far as to mess with his gun's sights to prevent him from hitting illegal targets.

    Well the government has committed so much crimes that almost nobody wants to be in the army.

    Good soldiers don't seek their own desires or glory.   The Military wants people that unquestioningly follow orders and the rules, not make decisions on their own.

    Those that want to kill people and are itching to do so do not belong in a professional military.

    Those people are undisciplined.  They're just killers.  The military needs more than just the will and ability to kill.
