    I have no fear of fighting, but I'm not fighting someone else's war. If a politician wants to start a war with Iraq, he can pick up a gun and go blow someone's head off himself - I'm not taking orders from those jackoffs.

    If I fight, it's either because A.) I'm fighting for my own honor B.) I'm fighting for my family or C.) I'm getting paid well for it.

    Only a fool would join the military, IMO.

    What would the rest do, capitulate to the new tyrant?
    The given scenario is what's a little difficult to swallow.

    Yes, I mentioned that earlier in the thread. Invasion of this country would come very late in the game.

    At that point I'd say they're free to have our hopelessly radioactive wasteland. Although "they" wouldn't exist either, because their entire military would have long since been nuked as well. Maybe if the hypothetical situation had included "Nuclear weapons don't exist," then perhaps most people would have voted differently.

    Yep, not sure why anyone would want to come here. [for several thousand years]

    Okay, then I think it's safe to say then that I wouldn't opt to be drafted to fight a nonexistent enemy who wants to take a our toxic, unarable wasteland. Happy?

    I haven't... and I'm truthful and say I don't know how I would react.

    Fully trained soldiers have cracked under the pressure of it.

    So I think it shows a lack of maturity that you think you'd be just dandy.

    With my security experience I find those who talk the loudest are often the weakest.

    That sounds like a challenge. I know for a fact I wouldn't be afraid to fight in a war. And no, I haven't been in combat because, as I said, I'm not fighting someone else's war.

    No you don't.

    It can crack even the hardest of the hard.

    I'm big enough to admit I'm not sure how I'd react.
