Okay, let's say tomorrow Putin declares war on the US and the UK and the major European powers ally against him. Iran sides with Russia and most of the middle east and Eastern Europe crumbles within days and is forced to surrender. We have a split down the centre of Europe between occupied Russian/Middle Eastern armies and Spanish and French soldiers holding the line down the middle.

Now assuming something like this happened, would you fight? I mean, would you wait to see how it pans out or wait for conscription to come into force, or would you sign up to defend the western world?

Let's assume that this guy is hell bent on controlling the world. It's a proper war, an old fashioned good vs evil war.

What would you do?

Personally, whilst I'd rather go to prison than fight in some politically motivated conflict like Vietnam or the Gulf, in the first event of a real war starting I'd be straight down to Sandhurst training as an officer to do whatever I could to defend the world from domination.

However some people probably would attempt to avoid conflict at all costs. And that's cool I guess. Thoughts?

I don't know if I'd be happy killing other people who are just regular people as well...

I think I'd avoid it if I could.

I would probably do something in the electronics side of combat, like fixing tanks/planes etc. I'm quite hands on, but I hate actual fighting.

I'd enlist as soon as possible. I'd be extremely proud to fight for my country.

Riding in those tanks look fun.

If my country (or an Allied country, but especially my own) were in danger, I'd do it. Otherwise, I'd probably avoid it. Yeah I'm a bastard like that, don't get messed up with it until someone makes it my business.

i think id volunteer.

i figure if a war like that comes, im gonna be in it whether i choose to or not.

I'm not really sure. I'm probably too puny to fight anyway.

World War II started from appeasement being a main cause.
I wouldn't fight in the battle, but i'd do whatever possible from home and make sure this guy is put down before he gain any more power.

I would fight, yeah. I think you're underestimating Scandinavia a bit though, Finland fought for independance against Russia, which has an army bigger than the entire population of Finland, and they still won...
#20
I just had an epic thought.

Imagine the armies of each side meeting up opposite each other, then just running in a la lord of the rings. How epic would that look. Millions of people hurting into each other.

Plus I would probably go and buy gas masks and radiation shield my home, and stock up of supplies first. The 'war' would consist of two men on other sides of the planet, hovering over a button that says 'nuke.'
#21
I'd try to avoid it. Nuclear war or non-nuclear? If it was nuclear you're ****ed pretty much wherever you are.

I'd try to avoid it but if there was a serious chance of world-domination, I'd probably fight to try and protect it. I just don't know whether I'd actually be able to kill normal people. Still, I'm pretty sure that if they were trying to kill me, I'd be able to shoot back.

Well since i'd be busy trying to take over the world and all....

Id use my chemical knowledge to help research and build chemical weapons to use against our enemies and not feel guilty about it. If it came down to it, I wouldnt care about the enemies life because they are the enemy. In war, one must lose all shred of humanity if they are to win the prize of peace.

Also Im just a sick bastard...

Hurrah for being in a neutral country.

Depends on the reasons, in a stupid ass reason for a war I'd stay at home but if there was a REAL reason then yes I'd go fight.

It's okay, they got totally blitzed in week three and surrendered. Now they're all in concentration camps being turned into cyborgs to fight for the enemy.

I said it was a main cause, meaning that it was one of the causes. My bad should have written that differently.

Translates to "you're too fat to pass an army physical"... There's this new concept called equality, seems they're actually letting women in the army these days! Fancy that!
