A thought provoking piece. All through history the leaders have thrown away the lives of thousands of service men who have been deemed disposable. Yet these brave men died for their country and have no choice what battles they fight. Who knows what drives a man to fight for his country. I'd like to think it was for honour and to defend those who are weaker and for his people's right to freedom
I absolutely hate the fact that there's still a need for military anywhere in the world. Yes, it's voluntary but people are basically losing their lives because world leaders are unable to communicate effectively. Wars are fought because leaders can't agree on something (simplified I know, but break it down and they are the facts). It simply doesn't make any sense. At all.
Huge respect to all service men and women that protect their countries and their allies, I just wish they weren't needed.
Really sad but thought provoking Craig :-) x
In what we now call our "modern age" it's not that leaders don't communicate because I think they do so rather well. Us little folk will often despair at the bargains they reach, (and some elections lol), however for the most part the world chugs along ok.
It's the nut jobs and extremists that create the need for military. How much is born of envy, how much of greed? If these people in power could simply grasp, that if they actually stopped shooting innocent people, and tried to work things out the world would welcome them and this would be despite their past deeds.
Jesus our nations history is drenched in blood. It took centuries but we got there!
As long as there is a man or woman out there with the "I want" instead of the "we need" attitude. Then war is unavoidable.
