    Would you defend your country?

    Say your country had embraced an ideology that was disliked by the majority of the world, and was committing practices that were deemed bad (genocide, environmental damage, listening to Justin Bieber etc.) would you allow a foreign country to invade, or would you fight against the invasion?

    For the most part, if it's disliked by most of the world it'll be disliked by me. I will never support something I don't like.

    Well...

    If any of my nations were committing atrocities or doing something that was severely wrong I would want that government to be overthrown... And hopefully it would be done by a UN force and I would go back after the invasion to help in the rebuilding process.

    I cannot defend the wrong just because it's wrapped in a South African, British or Canadian flag...

    Not being in that environment, I'd say I'd place bombs at select pinnacles of power.

    If the country I loved changed to the extent you described than I would conclude that my country had been overthrown and I would fight to restore it to what it was. I would accept almost anyone's help in doing that. I think with the way the poll is written, that means I would surrender to the invaders, but in actuality, I would probably fight with them.

    Those who are without sin..................
    Our nation was guilty of "bad practices" (slavery) (rights of minorities and majorities) and to this day, is not perfect -far from it..
    So who is ?
    I'd have to fight, just as the Afghanis and Iraqis have.
    Maybe, one of these days we will learn...
    But, to our credit, we did well with Japan and Germany.......
    I listen to no man, (except Jesus), including a Justin Berber, whoever he is....

    It would depend on the invading country. If I'm a citizen of Hilter's Germany and America/Britain comes storming in then I'm flying flags and arranging welcoming parties.

    I would fight to protect my country first, no matter what. If I have Nazis at home and Soviets on the border, I'm pointing my rifle at the Soviets first, and vice versa.

    What if it was the Russians storming in instead?
