Thread Name: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Subject: RE: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Why do people join the military, the majority would say it was out of a sense of patriotism. Wanting to defend their country in turn preserving the lifestyle that people enjoy.
Complaining and belittling the people who protect the lifestyle that many people enjoy leaves me to ask a simple question. What do you do to ensure that your fellow country people keep these freedoms and their lifestyle?
I know what the soldier does,put his/her life on the line,"no greater love" and all that. Stands between the people,who want to kill you or take your freedom,and you.
You may not agree with this method of defending your freedom,but you cannot deny it has worked in the past, you cannot deny that those who have died done so thinking they were doing good for their country,being a patriot and proving it the hard way.
So why all the fuss when soldiers die, think about the message people give to their children,how they must be patriotic.
