If you want to blame someone, blame your politicians. Blame the citizen for supporting it. But don't blame those, who were at war and camed back.
Well said! And agreed - this is the point I'm trying to get across.

Why not? Did the soldier not willingly choose to become a soldier?

It's always so simple from the other side... "You're hurt, because you chose to be a soldier" is just equal to saying, "You died on 9/11, because you were working in one of the towers, your fault".

Not at all. The purpose of a soldier is to go to war, and it's not exactly a secret that war is dangerous. If you don't want to get into a firefight on foreign soil you should not join the army, it's not that hard. The victims of 9/11 did not choose anything like that.

And the purpose of this thread is for people to support a cause if they choose to, not debate why or why not someone is a solider and whether or not they chose to be hurt.

Topic, stay on it.

I expected such response. Soldiers do not go to war to get shot, nor to shoot anybody (despite the common misconception). That's the job of stuntmen and human guinea pigs. Soldiers go to war to protect their country or to protect the innocent.

War is a last resort measure when words are not enough, and people that realise that there's much more shades of grey, than everyone thinks, agree that sometimes to do good, you have to do evil. And since there're always people, that tend to do uneducated shoutouts (my hint at what I think about your first post on this page), trolls and people that only think profit (and power, which is also profit), causing war, there will always be war. Constant conflict is in human nature, and you will be surprised to learn that actual military men tend to be way more pacifistic and objective, than those who haven't seen war.



As my final point, there're two realtively unrelated things, I'd like to point out:
1. Why hippies are really despised by (educated) people, is because they wage war on war... See the controversy?
2. I beg to differ. There's an acquaintance of mine, who lost his hand (hand, not arm), during the 2nd Chechen campaign, but he managed to get over it, pull his act together and to find work. He now lives rather happily with his wife and a kid, despite his what one would call "disability". And then, there're dozens of broken men, dressed in camo, wondering around our metro and asking for handouts. I, myself, differ and I do not appreciate treating the latter and the former alike, but this doesn't mean you should not pay your respects to the soldiers, that have to spill their blood for the better world.
