If someone invaded your country would you fight back?

Forums - General Discussion - If someone invaded your country would you fight back?

To protect my family from death, dictatorship, or horrid living conditions, I'd do anything.  That includes fight.  I'm no superman or anything but there are things I'd fight and die for.

yes i would but to say the truth i want aliens to come and invade my country instead of other humans so i am not killing my own race. Atleast then all earth will be unified against them



 

 

Depends on who and why my country was invaded



Nothing to see here, move along

Nope.

I'd be a shitty freedom fighter anyway.

What can I say... I'm honest with myself.

Most people wouldn't.

As human beings, I think it is pointless to fight eachother. So here is a better question. If something invaded earth, would you fight back?

If aliens have the technology to invade earth, it'd be pointless to fight back.

We could never take the fight back to them... and if they got fed up with us, they could just retreat, and then orbitally bombard us to death. 

Then resettle the planet and take it's resources.

I would leave the country. Duh. 1 person won't make a difference and I would rather not sacrifice myself for any country. Although if I have no opportunity to do that and the invading force will likely enslave or kill most of the civilians then of course I would fight. Though thankfully my country of residence does not seem to be in any dire risk of invasion except in call of duty games.



Depends entirely on the regime I am living under and the intentions oif the invading regime.

 



I'm not really here!

It depends. If the invading country esentially treats me as a second class citizen, not giving me any rights and persecuting me (like the empires who ruled over the region where Romania is currently located), I'd definately join or found some sort of resistence movement.

However if the invading country treated me like any other citizen of it's empire, allowing me all the rights and freedoms that any other citizen has, then I'd have no problem with it. It would probably be a good thing in the long run.

If you want to create a alrge empire, you need to create an assimilation plan where the conquered populations eventually are assimilated and become equal citizens of the empire, or else people will eventually rise up and the empire will crumble.


so if your country was invaded you wouldn't fight? that's all you had to say...

 

as for me honestly don't know I am a decide what to do at the time kind of guy  

If that's all you got from my post, you should try reading it again once or twice.


you were talking about whether they took your rights away or not, something that could only happen after they have invaded and taken over. So in regards to the question posed by the op you would not take up arms if your country was invaded, but you when't on to  if they started impeding your rights you would start a resistance.

Considering how the OP worded his post I assumed the country had already been invaded, and he was asking if I'd become like the Iraqis fighting the American invaders.

If the country was on the brink of being invaded I'd make my choice taking into account the current conditions in my country and the intentions of the invaders.

Risks? Pretty much guaranteed to die
Benefits? Pretty much guaranteed to be zero.

Despite what Hollywood tells us, one man armies seldom get beyond their front door. :P

I was also talking about the risks/benefits of the invasion, and I wasn't thinking specifically about a one-man army situation ;)
