Authority of the Military

I am frequently shouted down and called every thing from disrespectful to a traitor when I point out that the U.S. military consists of mercenary soldiers fighting wars for profit. But, actually who is being a bad actor? I am a civilian. That means I am part of the sovereign.  Where does the military get its authority? From the sovereign.

As a part of the sovereign  it is my job to rein in the military when the military is doing immoral things. The notion that every citizen has to support every activity the military engages in is completely dangerous.
