GUEST,achmelvich BS: Jingoism or Commemoration (1235* d) RE: BS: Jingoism or Commemoration 14 Nov 15


keith, i reckon that anyone would 'bear arms in defence of their home'and it's a major reason why many people across the world are so angry about modern day imperialist adventures by the usa and their allies. of course, i would fight in defence of my home but i certainly would not fight for cheap oil, general haig, capitalism or just because 'we have to do something' about syria.
in my own occasionally engaged though always enraged way it feels like i have been fighting against thatcherism all my adult life but never felt the need to get physical about it.
it's a long time since any of us had to fight in defence of our home - we are lucky to live in the uk with our soldiers abroad. we should remember all the victims of war, everywhere.
