Thread Name: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Subject: RE: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
No I dont think joining the military is mad...usualy they are youngsters looking to escape the problems of homelife whether it be unemployment,or dull career prospects...they join up looking for the excitement of traveling,perhaps the camradery of military life,here in the UK the military has long been promoted as a means of learning a trade in engineering...No sorry mate,but dieing in wars hardly enters their young minds,after all you can be sent out to have your head blown off in the name of militarism before you are even old enough to buy a pint of beer or vote in an election..yes death does occur to soldiers in war,but to call death in such an instance duty is nothing more than a load of old jingoistic baloney...
