Please read the OP before voting.

This is a hypothetical scenario, which is not concerned with politics / the real world situation but your personal sentiment.

The scenario is as follows:
A) Your home country is attacked and faces an invasion.
B) Your home country occupies the moral high ground in this war (the attack can not be justified by any commonly accepted moral standard).
C) The invasion imposes a serious threat to your home country.
D) It is not a world war. Surrounding countries could offer a save haven.

Now you can vote.

Only because I support the cause. If I felt the attackers had the moral high ground I would fight for them instead.

I wouldn't. Seriously, if a country invades, I'll step over the Belgium border!!!


Which is conveniently located 3 meters from my front door.

What would change in my country if this invading one took over? If they set up a more morally sound, productive, and more humanitarian friendly society, why would I fight against that?
#14
No.

I'd wait until our national army gets beaten (wich, sadly, would be pretty much inevitable), then I'd go geurilla

EDIT: Come to think of it, I should've picked 'Other'...

Of course I would.

I'd even go as far as telling I'd enjoy proving any invader you don't mess with the French, no matter what the common groundless American stereotype says.

I'd defend it but that doesn't necessarily mean I'd do any fighting.

on topic, yes, i would. no doubt in my mind. i'd sit on my front porch with my own little arsenal. i would hope that pawn shops would start giving away guns in case of invasion. there are some automatics at some pawn shops down broadway.

in any event, i'd definitely kill anyone invading.

You know that the French have a reputation as "Cheese-eating surrender monkeys" right?
I mean hell, back in the 1700s you tried to invade my tiny little island and we beat your ass.
You attacked on a day that we considered 'Old Christmas Day', we were completely unprepared and we won.

Seriously though, any country in the world could walk into France, give your troops a lapdance and you'd surrender.

P.S. Yes, I'm an ass.

My home country as in the country I hail from, or the US? In either case, I would still fight for it. I would give up my life if it meant that the people of Vietnam had one more day of safety from what ever force that is invading it, and I would be damn proud to have done so.

As for the US, things are a little different because I don't have any real cultural ties to the populace, but I have many friends that I would willingly lay down my life for. If the United States was invaded and the war came to my area, I would fight as an insurgent rather than in the official army, so I could be sure I am defending what I love. If I fought in the army I would probably be shipped out to who knows where and I'd be defending people I have no emotional tie to.

But like I said, either way I would fight. For those who have the power to fight have the responsibility to fight.

No, but not because of anything to do with the actual war itself, but because I am a pacifist.

Hm. I probably could have worded it better. But my point is, I would rather be here fighting for my friends and loved ones and know that they are safe rather than be out somewhere fighting for John and Jane Doe while being unable to be certain of the fate of my loved ones.
