GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 28 Apr 12

////"All soldiers whilst they agree to murder and dominate on behalf of the oppressors are mercenaries."////

What does that even mean?? Whilst they agree?? You mean they sign a contract that says, "I recognize you to be an oppressor and I agree to murder and dominate on your behalf for $5000 a month"?

You sign a contract agreeing to serve and follow their rules and regulations. You take an oath. Nothing about murdering and dominating. If you're in a situation where you're told to fire on people then you fire on people. It's not a matter of agreement, it's a matter of doing your duty. If you refuse to fire and one of them opens fire on you and kills your buddies--what do you say? You have to accept that your leaders have assessed the situation to the best of their ability and have made a decision that has to be successfully carried out or even worse things could happen. There's no agreement or non-agreement. You do your duty and you try to keep yourself and your buddies alive. It's not an easy situation to be in and it's not for you or anyone else to pass judgment on someone thrust into that situation.
