My life goal was to be a soldier to do just that. I was 3 weeks away from achieving that goal when somebody wrecked my back and my chances to become a soldier. I would have loved to stand for those who can not stand up for themselves. I do not put much stock in nationalism though. I am a Canadian and happy to be a Canadian but being a soldier to me meant the chance to help people not as fortunate as myself. I think it is a responsibility to refuse to look away from some the the twisted things in this world. So would i become a soldier and would i fight for my country. Your damn right i would. If i could turn clocks back i would be doing exactly that right now.
I dont think being a soldier is something just anybody can do, that is why I respect them so much.

I second or just agree with this. Now where are my Vigoorian Flails or ninchaku at? I also need to get my hand-to-hand combat ready for war. I'll also be getting a khukuri, just in case.

Not likely. If I'm going to risk my life to oppose someone, I think I would go with disobeying my new overlords as opposed to going and trying to kill people. I mean, I really can't say for sure what I would do if the situation came up, but I think that is what I might go with.

Kill or be killed. Whichever you prefer.

Yeah I would just for the fun of it. I don't care about dying though.

Most wars? You could only get me over there by using the draft. And even then, only because if I didn't go someone else would be forced to. I am not the greatest man, but I wouldn't force someone else to risk their life in my stead.

Honestly it is insanely unlikely for a large country like the US to experience a war that would threaten the entire country ever again. Due to the way the global economy works it would cause a chain of economic melt downs.

I am already in the military though so to answer the question yes I would.

^this.

(If my country has to change the draft rules to draft someone as old and unfit for combat as I am, then the situation is likely already beyond hopeless)

I probably would, if it was a war that threatened the entire country and not just a tiny portion that would in no way affect my safety. Selfish? Sure.

At any rate, I'm not sure what this says about my mentality, but I've always thought I wouldn't be too affected by essentially being ordered to kill people (in a war setting, I feel I should add), by which I mean I don't believe it would have much affect on my conscience... I can assure you I am not a sociopath, though.

Depends on the motivation of the war, and honestly, how do I get to fight it too.

I'm a nerdy, weak, guy with a lot of book smarts but very few street ones. If I thought the cause deserves my help, and I could contribute in some significant ways using what I can do best (cracking codes, hacking, spying, doing weapon research) I would probably do so. If I didn't, or felt like I was sent to almost certain death for no sensible result, fuck that, honestly. I would fight personally risking my life mostly to protect actual people that I actually care about, not an abstract manipulated ideal. In fact, I'm pretty sure as a foot soldier I'd be more of a negative asset than anything... actively harming my own army by sheer incompetence . But then again, I have a strong case of myopia, so I would never get enlisted unless they were REALLY desperate for recruits.

It's all propaganda. It's all lies. It's all brainwashing. They don't care about us - all they care about is money.

Fight?

'Shit, general! They summoned Phersu!'

'Major....'

'Yes, general?'

'Ready the white flag. And new pants.'

Um... no. I'm too young to die DX Also, I'm pretty selfish and extremely out of shape. I'd be no use to the military to do any training or fighting.
