Evening all.

I was thinking to my myself, "if my career plans fail, would i join the army and go to Iraq/Afghanistan etc?'' I decided I wouldn't because I don't think my country is in danger if I don't.

Basically the only situation in which I would join the military is if my country (England) was under imminent threat of invasion.

So I put it to you! Would you ever join the military and go to fight in a foreign land on such a questionable premise of defending your country? And do you think the meddling in the middle-east is defending the western world?

GO...

Yes. Why not? I'll fight the Westerners if I have to

EDIT: Seriously, no, I wouldn't think about it because I have better things to think about like my own life and my family. I'd rather die in their arms than be shot by a blind bullets.

my point of view is very similar to yours.

I doubt most of the decisions our politicians make, let alone their decisions of what is "fighting for the country"

I wouldn't wanna fight a political war. But that's what the National Guard is for, most of the National Guard stays on the home front.

But if I were alive (and of the right age) I would have fought in WWI or WWII, those are both justified wars as far as the United States goes.

I'd fight to defend my country in the event of a direct invasion, never as part of a pre-emptive strike.

I often wonder though, like the people that do join the army, are they really doing it for us (the country)?

For instance my friend is only joining the army because he cocked up his GCSE's and has no other options. I can imagine he is not on his own. Now don't get me wrong I appreciate them, but I dunno, I just feel a bit awkward when I see all these 'Support Our Boys' headlines in the newspapers.

Iraq/Afghanistan? Not a chance in hell. Fighting for your country is the greatest honor you can bestow upon yourself, but we're not fighting for any cause other than profit and empire. If a REAL war broke out, I'd be the first one to ship out.

I never thought of this the day that I enlisted
That I'd be dodging bullets, seeking weapons that never even existed
For someone else's personal beef, I risk my health
When the Commander in Chief would never go and fight himself
I feel like I'm being tricked worse than the civilians
Nobody ever told me that we would be killing children
I'm thinking the ones that sent me here are really the psychotics
But if I say that out loud I'm unpatriotic

I couldn't fight for my country even if there was a just war. I simply couldn't face putting my neck on the line for little more than the prospect of dying.

Hell, I'd probably turn traitor and hand the country over.

No way.
Killing people to stop people from being killed doesn't seem very logical in my books.

On the other hand, if earth was going to war with Aliens who legitimatly wanted us dead for no reason, then i would gladly step up to defend the planet.

No, and depending on who's invading, nor would I join the army to fight in defence of 'my country'

True, but if someone was using unprovoked aggression against my country then I would defend it. Ideally it would never happen in the first place, though.

Even then I'd still be undecided.

I refuse to fight for someone else's agenda and I can't stand to be used.
