Food for Thought on Soldiering

The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
- G.K. Chesterton

A soldier cannot be held responsible for the National Anger that leads to war. In fact, the last person who wants war is a soldier, with a few extreme exceptions of those individuals who crave war, but they will probably at some stage realise how misguided they were. In the end if the government of a country decides that war is the only way then we are expected to kill and therefore we train hard so that we can be ready and if we train hard enough maybe nobody will be foolish enough to start a war with us.

Long live Peace.

The Americans summed it up quite well: "Forget the politics, support the troops." I think it's important to realise that the guys and girls out there are just doing their jobs.

And yes, long live peace. It is nice to know that we are combat ready in the event that peace decides to go belly up.
