Yes, way off topic.

Not any more way off than some of the things you post. ex: Your constant spewing about Obama. I'm not an Obama fan, but I don't think he is as bad as Bush was.


Anyway, the ironic thing is - there is no draft, so why did he volunteer to serve and why did he elect to serve in that war?

You didn't read his reason.....

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues.
