GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 09 May 12


/////Teri - get a reality pill. The military personnel are there and are fighting because they were ordered to do so. They do not have an effective personal choice to exercise. They know when they join up that this is what will be.

They may be brave to take the decision to enlist in that knowledge, they may hope that they will defend against aggressors or bring enlightenment to savages, but it does not make them heroes, for they do not know what they will be ordered to do./////

I agree with this. But I would add not to say that they aren't doing for it you. That's exactly who they are doing it for. If you don't like that, well, life is full of stuff that we don't like but that's how it is.
