    So, if the war was started by us (and understand that I don't support our starting any war at all), and we were invaded by foreign forces, you would just sit idly by and wait to be killed?

    1. That answer doesn't make sense since Chicken's don't understand those concepts.

    2. Still didn't answer the question.

    3. For a country that doesn't exist you seem pretty invested in it.

    I'm bringing my own, so I won't need the pink one.

    Well, if its a war of genocide, that's an entirely separate matter. The same if my government is going to execute me for refusing to fight. It all depends on the theoretical extremes we're going to.

    It would be more plausible to say I would be sent to prison or a labor camp to wait for my new masters to take control of the country, or for my old ones to turn their attention back to me.

    It's a very important point for me that I don't countenance somebody making me their thrall.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Because I'm a Marine. When the Founding Fathers dealt with their first foreign policy crises, they dealt with it by declaring a neo-imperialist war in the Middle East, to include overthrowing and replacing a foreign government. And they did it with a handful of Marines, because Marines of the Old Breed were indestructible super men. And every U.S. Marine learns that story in Boot Camp, and reiterates it every time we sing our hymn.

    Well, when I talk about war, I'm thinking an actual war. A Take No Prisoners kind of war. I can understand your lack of support for war in general, and I can understand your disdain at the idea of us starting a war, but if my homeland is invaded, I will fight with everything I've got.
