    Default Millennials and ISIS

    Why Millennials want war against ISIS, but don't want to serve



    A new poll shows how young Americans take a strong line against terrorism, and perhaps the Islamic State in particular, but don't trust their own government.

    Everyone wants government to do a lot of things. No one wants their taxes raised. This is no different.

    Or they know that our government doesn't follow through and finish the job, so that they would be risking their lives for nothing. Ask the families of service men and women that died in Iraq and Afghanistan and ask them if they think it was worth it, now that ISIS is taking over Iraq and the Taliban is re-taking Afghanistan.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    You also have to remember we have a volunteer army. I can go to a local government meeting and say "we should look at rehabbing the intersection of 4th and Broadway," but that doesn't mean anyone would expect me to be project manager or pour the concrete.

    If we limit opinions on military engagement only to those who are willing to serve, I cringe at what our foreign policy would look like. We probably would have nuked half the world by this point.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
