In my opinion, the military has several functions:
Yes, one of them is eliminating the poor. Just look at how the majority of those US soldiers who fought in Vietnam were of the "Lower Classes" while sons of rich oil men and politicians (aka Bush and Gore) were protected from such service.... this is a fact.
Another reason why the military exists: Well, we do have this thing called the Military-Industrial Complex....
Let's not forget that these military people are getting salaries, college tuition, etc....
Also, the military is used to further a country's agenda, be it territorial greed, political "pride" (aka pissing contests)...
Simmer down you two.
