I'm an American. No way would I fight "for my country". I may fight for a cause, or for loved ones, or myself. But, I don't feel any sort of responsibility to any country. It's just a set of imaginary lines with mostly stupid rules.

It's not that simple of a question. There are circumstances under which I would fight. Fight to kill in a state sponsored campaign of fucking murder. And fight to to die against....???????

I'm a pacifist of sorts. Not like the extreme types who don't fight back but those who avoid physical conflict. In an ideal world there would be no armed forces. That's what I want cause I hate the army of any country including my own but they are a necessity. I hate that they are a necessity. I don't think the honest opinions of people in any country will be that they will fight for it like a soldier even if its the middle east or Africa. Only stupid idiotic patriots would do that. What I would do is to help find a way to end the conflict

Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Depend on how close the war hits home. I'm all for protecting my people. Not for attacking other countries willy-nilly.

Yeah, conquesting army. Reduce that to one army trying to invade another country and getting .... no opposition. How many would die, what do you think?

Reduce it, why exactly? You're at the mercy of your occupiers, read up on the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe after World War II.

Yeah, compare that to the deaths from war. I take occupation over war. There are other ways fighting against occupation without it involves deaths: sabotage, demonstations, obstruction. Take a look at your own example, the soviet occupation of eastern europe ended not with a war. That is better, because despite what all say, a war always destroys lives, societies and economy. Depending on the intensity of a war, the negative effects occur for a long time even after it ended. War is really, really the last resort, if someone is starting to massacre people. War should only be seen as option, if it is no worse than what is fought against. And as war is pretty bad, not much keeps necessitating a war.

Wealth has nothing to do with it, look at the map itself at Romania, Finland, Sweden, Spain, italy, Bulgaria etc.

Are you suggesting Italy and Spain are poor?
