YEY SYRIA!

I asked dh what his opinion on syria is, and wasn't suprised to hear the answer. he's 8 years navy (seabee) and deployed right now. he's always been bluntly honest. lol. here's what he said:

me: what do you think about the potential war in syria?
dh: honestly?

me: yea
dh: dont give 2 fucks
 we go to war there are alot of potential benefits for the navy and my job
 war cause military surges
 they bring lots of people in and stop kicking them out
 which increases advancement quotas for the short term
 war stimulates economy regardless of what people want

me: i keep hearing about how people think it's non of our business and to stay out. but i figured youd have an opinion.
dh: if we go to war with them, i can get deployed there
 being there = more money
 its not really our business
 they are in a civil war, one that will shape their country for the future
 we have no right to interfear
 but when has that stopped the government from sticking its nose where it doesnt belong before

me: true
dh: i dont really care about their country or their problems
 doesnt have any effect on my life
 nor do i care about our governments reason
 if they want to go to war, then im all for it as long as they are willing to pay
 hazard duty pay, imenent danger pay, and combat pay total is about 450-600 a month
 depending on how they run the numbers
 they want to give me an extra 450 a month for building shitty buildings in a shitty country, I am totally ok with that


so what do you think?

Obviously, your dh doesn't have to worry about being one of a three man team doing a halo insertion into the country to link up with insurgents.

How special for him the benefits outweigh the risks.

And this is why your dh is a Seabee.  The Navy really didn't want him for his brain, did they?

I want to know where his common sense is. It doesn't "have any effect on his life"? Ha!

Quoting chrlstoncharmed:

I want to know where he studied economics.

So your DH only joined the military for the pay. Does he have any patriotic feelings at all? Why did he bother joining?

From the sound of it, your dh is only for himself. I only hope my dh will not have to worry about standing next to yours.

 Wow, I really don't know what to say to this, other than that was really painful to read.

Your husband sounds like Uncle Eddie from Lampoon Vacation.
