As a member of a military family, I would have to agree with bullgatortail: Blame the government and not the military. The military goes where they are told, when they are told. They do not have a "say" in where they are sent or what they must do once they get there.
That being said, they do chose to join the Armed Forces, but outside of that, they are at the government's beck-and-call. The "disasters" are not the fault of the soldiers. The disasters cannot be placed on the shoulders of one person or one group. Both sides fight and are held accountable in different ways by the different sides represented.
