Has War become more safer and comfortable for the USA in modern times?

From what we hear. Soldiers travel to war in nice comfortable Humvees. Aircon in the tanks. A massive massive combat armor. Internet, telephone, 3 nice meals a day. Rest, Sleep in nice beds. health, dental care, Movies, nice nurses and Madams. Spend free time hobbys like Golf, Boxing, soccer etc.. It appears war is like a walk in the park nowadays. Also alot of the damage is done by the airforce guys and the marines confortably waltz in and take over the Arab country that they are fighting Do you think war is more safer and a nicer vocation? Gone are days of brutal trench warfare, the jungles of the Mekong delta where the Vietcong would kneecap the unassuming GI and then r-pe him in his tiger cage. War is nothing like the IWO jima campaign in which 250'000 US marines perished in. So would you say you feel alot more safer, comfortable and well looked after? Also do the nurses do all them things that we hear about? lucky dogs!

War can never be "safe and comfortable". Those humvies can still be blown up, the air cones dont work when your trapped in a metal box and temperatures rise above 80 degrees. Modern technology and air attacks help soften up the enemy so that the army has less casualties but go and talk to a veteran of wars in Iraq or... More

Todays warfare is safer than the past years. But its still not safe by any bit.
