If someone wants to go and fight a war I don't support and inevitably gets their legs blown off while while doing so, why should I feel obliged to help them out? If it was about aiding the troops from WW2 it would be ok, but most of them are dead now.

You're good at isolating a single situation and taking a moral high ground from it.

If you didn't realise, we were fighting a war, people tend to die. You're no hero sitting on your house waiting for a bomb to drop. You are if you risk your life to protect the piece of soil you come from.

The only good thing that came out of WW1 and WW2 was the technological advancement of the West. Period.

The rapists were were instructed to rape from their higher ups?
No. My bad, I was thinking abouy My Lai when I wrote that

Didn't say you should. If you're going to respect a soldier fighting another cause or in another country though, no reason why you can't respect british ones, since all soldiers are the same (if they're not committing crimes like killing innocent civilians or raping people).
That's what you're not getting. I do respect British soldiers, but not all of them. I respect all people who act honourably.

Because not all of them are respectable!

I've been saying the same thing over and over :sigh:

What makes one soldier more respectable than another?

Excluding criminal acts of course.

The same thing that makes one person more respectabe than the other - their conduct and actions.

Do you think that all soldiers conduct themselves the same?

So you're not judging them as soldiers, you're judging them for their personalities?

I judge all soldiers the same as long as they act in accordance with the law.

I don't need to know any soldiers to know that not all of them deserve respect.

If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be free.

You can see alternate histories now?

The died defending their own freedoms. They won, and the status quo remained. Are we to remember every conflict there ever was because our way of life has been influenced by siad conflicts?

So what you're saying is, if we had lost the war, everything would be the same as it is now?

I didn't say that.

I'm saying that we don't know what would have happened.

But, more importantly, the soldiers of that time were fighting to secure their way of life. They weren't fighting for a new way of life.
