    I'm comfortable with that.

    Absolutely.


    I already tried to go for Iraq Part One (Gulf war) and they said I was too close to half-deaf. I was sorely tempted to try again after 9-11, but I knew my hearing wasn't any better and I was probably past induction age.


    If there was anything remotely like an invasion, I'm with Kori: I'm going to war whether the gov says go or not. I'll form the "First South Carolina Highly Irregulars" and head towards the sound of the guns.


    IMHO if you're not willing to defend the State of which you are a citizen, you have no business voting.

    I Guess that you are all talk after all, or maybe it is that love for killing that outweighs you hatred for Hussein Obama?

    You seem very confused IMO.

    For myself I would say it all depends, if Hitler was running the country I might have to say thanks but no and take a pass.

    Re: Would you go to war to defend the USA?

    Absolutely. That presumes, of course, that USA sovereignty or interests abroad (military bases, embassies, ships, etc.) are under attack or significant threat of attack. Pre-emptively invading a country, Iraq, that could in no way harm us significantly based on faulty, deceptive "intelligence" does not fall under that category.

    Re: Would you go to war to defend the USA?

    It depends.

    Are you asking if I personally would take up arms to defend the US? Or would I support the idea of going to war to defend the US?

    The answer to either I guess is it depends on what I would be defending the US against, and whether I thought going to war would make the problem better or worse.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Well, I think the premise of the question is that you're not simply going to war for other people. You're going to war for a country you presumably have a significant attachment to. Would you go to war for that?

    Depends on Why, Where, and For what reason, the war is being fought', and the return gained as an American Citizen.

    The State makes it possible for you to live a life relatively free from foreign incursion and invasion, and tries to keep order so that commerce and prosperity and normal life are possible. Also, your State contains your family, neighbors, friends, acquantainces, business associates, customers.... in essense it is your HOME, and if you won't defend your home you have no business taking part in governing it. Frankly I think claiming the legal protection of a State and at the same time refusing to defend it against foreign aggression is a hypocritical or cowardly position.
