Armies of people with guns and swords and bombs were often send throughout history to defend old men's property against other old men for often purely selfish reasons. Nowadays, this has become easier, with the amount of humans with better health, the increased world population and the variety of weapons.

Armed forces in the broadest sense, are the land-based military branch, service branch or armed service of a nation or country. It may also include aviation assets by possessing an army aviation component. Within a national military force, the word army may also mean a field army. Occupied forces and clandestine units may also be armed forces.


Private Armies: How Mercenaries Fight Today's Wars - The Armchair Historian

Ancient Rome, Ancient China, Sparta and Egypt were one of the first organized armies. In the middle ages, armies began being hired units, and personal security of royals. Around the 1800s, mandatory conscription began the modern trend of countries creating large standing armies. These standing armies werre distrusted at first, such as before the reconstruction and WW1 in the US, but became a standard way of forming armies for countries. Starting around 1945 with Operation Gladio, secret armies, purely focused on scaring a population and maintaining a strategy of tension became normal. "Terrorists" starting around the 1980s, with the rise of TV, the new millennium became known for special interests forming armies and invading countries with weak police forces or ineffective governments. They started fighting for commercial gain as PMC or private military companies.[1][2][3]

Violating Geneva Conventions

Hundreds of armies have committed war crimes throughout history. The 1949 Geneva Conventions have been ratified by all Member States of the United Nations, while the Additional Protocols and other international humanitarian law treaties have not yet reached the same level of acceptance. However, many of the rules contained in these treaties have been considered as part of customary law and, as such, are binding on all States (and other parties to the conflict), whether or not States have ratified the treaties themselves, but the UN has proven to be selective in its handling of violations. Countries themselves often let a lot of people go without any charges in their investigations.

Vietnam War

Following the massacre a Pentagon task force called the Vietnam War Crimes Working Group (VWCWG)[4] investigated alleged atrocities by U.S. troops against South Vietnamese civilians and created a formerly secret archive of some 9,000 pages (the Vietnam War Crimes Working Group Files housed by the National Archives and Records Administration) documenting 320 alleged incidents from 1967 to 1971 including 7 massacres (not including the My Lai Massacre) in which at least 137 civilians died; 78 additional attacks targeting noncombatants in which at least 57 were killed, 56 wounded and 15 sexually assaulted; and 141 incidents of U.S. soldiers torturing civilian detainees or prisoners of war. 203 U.S. personnel were charged with crimes, 57 were court-martialed and 23 were convicted. The VWCWG also investigated over 500 additional alleged atrocities but "failed to verify them have happened at all".[5]

Black sites

Armies such as the CIA, 国家安全部 (Chinese Ministry of State Security), and the FSB have often acted as liason and abductor and kidnapper of civilians to be transported to black sites. These black sites are often secret military bases, where torture takes place, violating numerous international laws.[6][7][8]

Cover up

Most Brutal War Crimes in the History of Mankind - The Military Channel

The U.S army increasingly allowed soldiers charged with violent crimes to leave the military rather than face trial, according to a report in The Texas Tribune in 2023. Reports of rape, child abuse by soldiers and domestic abuse against family members of soldiers was going unpunished.[9]


Although Army Regulation 610-210, which covers recruiting guidelines, states that applicants are ineligible for enlistment if, “as a condition for any civil conviction or adverse disposition or any other reason through a civil or criminal court, [they are] ordered or subjected to a sentence that implies or imposes enlistment into the Armed Forces of the United States.” Other branches carry similar enlistment requirements, a substantial amount of US judges force individuals prosecuted for serious crimes to "join the army" or go to prison and jail, even for the most serious crimes as child rape, murder and robberies, according to military personel.[10]
