    Heroism Under Fear

    I am a pacifist, but do respect that some good men and women hear "the call to arms". Having said that, I'd much prefer them to join to help Medicins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders) or another philanthropic organisation, than go to war. Bring the Armed...

    The Retaliation Factor

    As of yet, I've not managed to find anyone who shares the opinion I'm writing about here. Maybe somebody on this site will agree with me (fingers crossed). I am a pacifist, and thus do not think war is the solution. In any discussion on this topic I've had with other people, the...

    I Will Get A Lot Of Hate For Posting This

    Frankly, I believe a large amount of people who serve in the army are bigots. I am not saying ALL of them are like that, heck, I am not even saying MOST of them are like that. But think about it, people only enlist in the army for these reasons: 1) They can't find any other job...

    Not All.

    The key word here is all. Anyone can be a hero to others, including a soldier, but I don't believe they automatically deserve hero status just because they enlisted. Make no mistake, I have friends and family in the armed forces that I am proud of. They're good people. But, the...

    Ethics

    It's unfortunate that the military teaches "Not TRY to harm" (collateral damage is OK, danger to soldiers is minimal) vs TRY NOT to harm (Reduce collateral damage, danger to soldiers goes up) Yes, the danger would go up, but if done properly, no one would be hurt and our foreign...

    Dog Tags Can Hang Round Anyone's Neck

    That hideous lie that all soldiers are heroes has only one thing wrong with it and that's the word all. A while back a man in Afghanistan a man defied orders to break cover and remove a child from the crossfire. Risking his own life and severe punishment to save a child is...

    Quite Right

     Soldiers are sinners and saints.  Soldiers are bullies and protectors, Soldiers are lonely or in love, straight, gay, fat skinny, attractive and unattractive.  Soldiers are people with a dangerous job.  We would be living under a fascist dictatorship with out...
