    Best answer: Kick out - no
    Refuse to enlist - yes

    Your question is "can" and yes they have the authority to act that way. But it practice, they will always have a reason. They might not tell you but they person who kicked you out will always have a reason to tell their superior when asked why.

    Kicking someone out is different than refusing to enlist someone. By joining the military, there is a contract between the military and the soldier. The military cannot terminate that contract other than according to the terms specified in that contract, which includes explaining why.

    Best answer: Broken Arrow.

    https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.p...

    The term may now only refer to nuclear incidents but that was not always the case.

    http://www.kgbanswers.com/what-does-brok...

    Note that if a regular infantry unit is broadcasting a "Broken Arrow" call then it is extremely unlikely to refer to a nuclear incident.

    Finally, I don't think there was ever a code phrase for a unit commander to call for a strike on his own position. However, the commander could provide the coordinates of his own position as the target for the strike after declaring the emergency.

    Best answer: If you join, you know that the USA being a warring nation is involved in active military activity around the world. You, at your young age, would risk being involved in these activities which could bean losing limbs, sight, hearing, speech. It could mean being captured and tortured. It could mean a life of PTSD and having to live as a disabled person for as long as you live. You want to take a chance on that? Don't believe the crap about serving your country. Politicians don't give a damn about you. You are only there to serve their purpose. Get educated and find yourself a good job with enough money to live comfortably or be an entrepreneur, but stay away from the military.

  • Is the Su-25 better than the A-10?

    Best answer: Before I give the answer let me just say: Both have advantages and disadvantages.

    Best answer: Before I give the answer let me just say:

    Both have advantages and disadvantages. The A-10 is more armored and more likely to survive a hit, an SU-25 is faster and more maneuverable and it's less likely to get hit in the first place and still has some good armor so can survive some amount of small fire which is unlikely to hit anyway. The modern SU-25 have systems which will jam most missile seeking equipment.

    As for armament, this is where it gets interesting, the A-10 has better gun and more bombs, the SU-25 carries more rockets and more sophisticated one, this basically effectively means the planes have different styles of completing same task

    As for defense from the air, the SU-25 has better ability to escape air to air threats, and is more likely to survive attacking a technologically advanced opponent because A-10's armor is not going to protect it from several MANPADS or 1 vehicle's missile, considering it's slow speed it's an easy target for missiles and even heavier guns.

    And now to destroy some myths.

    "SU-25 gets shot down more so it's worse, just look at recent news", yeah SU-25 gets shot down more because it's actually doing combat at this time, the A-10 is not fighting anyone, let alone well supplied army. The SU-25 is currently up against rebels in Ukraine who have access to fairly new AA equipment and is also up against terrorists in Syria who lunatics like John McCain have explicitly said they want to supply with modern AA systems. A-10 it's fair share of casualties in middle East during Iraq wars.

    "SU-25 is outdated and is old Russian garbage", Russia has upgraded it's SU-25 fleet to include more advanced tech, some avionics are more advanced than what A-10 has. It has better tech when it comes to guided missiles and defense from guided missiles.

    "One clearly outclasses the other", not really they both fly majority of their sorties successfully by a large number. The SU-25 however is used by several nations and is doing far more combat these days so obviously there will be more losses now. Both Russia and US have professional pilots, A-10 has been exclusively used by US, SU-25 on the other hand has been sold or given to many less capable and poor nations including Ukraine who don't properly maintain aircraft and often fly outdated, rusting and decaying planes with no upgrades.

    I would really have to say it depends on what you're attacking, A-10 is slow, well armored and carries a lot of firepower but against a modern military this Armor is not enough to do much. SU-25 has guided equipment, can go faster and can strike at high speeds but against infantry or insurgents you're striking at small vehicles and people on foot and it's harder to get a shot with cannon or bombs and slowing down is slightly bigger threat because of slightly less armor.

    ANSWER: A-10 performs some tasks better against some opponents but the SU-25 can be used in greater variety of ways and against more technologically advanced opponents. A-10s armor does help in ground attack against insurgents and outdated vehicles but anything more advanced would easily shoot it down if it were to try something like that at low speeds. SU-25 is designed to attack ground at higher speeds and has far more anti-missile and air defense systems in place, it actually stands a chance if enemy planes come, not saying it will shoot them down but it has systems in place to evade Air to Air and ground to air missiles

  • Is it illegal to lie to a military recruiter?

    I wanted to contact a military recruiter via an online web chat feature on the particular branch's page. I only have one or two general questions and I don't feel like being haggled by a recruiter later on. I was going to give them a nom de plume instead of my real name. Is that illegal?
