Which is worse, to die.
Or to live with a loved one dead?

Thank you trollmobile, and I can understand where you're coming from. But these men are dying out there, and granted they "signed up for it" but blood is the highest cost by far. And while wives do suffer from the loss of their husband, that's not always the case. Not all soldiers have wives, but granted they do have mothers. But I know from personal experience that a mother will eventually recover (I'm not a mother, so don't infer that...I'm a guy), but you'll never recover from death.

No it's not.
Blood is not the highest cost, there are many things worse than death.

Listen man, I don't mean to gang yo on you. But my point is, if you ever want to have your heart broken. Just read the stories of the men who have went to fight for a cause greater than their own, risking life and limb for country, and watching their best friend since they were 9 come back in a casket after watching him die and doing everything in their power to save him, but there's nothing they can do. Then they'd lie awake at night blaming themselves, wondering "why not me?" Suicide is a very high risk for people coming back from wars. It's a tremendous pain that's uncompromising to any other.

You mean like becoming a quadriplegic because of an I.E.D. accident that occurred whilst serving over seas? Or what about a slow and painful death after being tortured by uncivilized Neanderthals in a cave in the middle of the desert, then having your head cut off and your body mutilated? Or watching your brothers in arms die one by one around you? Maybe you're talking about endless hours of lost sleep because of seeing death on a first-hand basis, and coming infinitely close to your imminent death, and now you can't sleep under an active fan because it reminds you of a helicopter coming in and taking away either you or a loved brother? Physical and mental trauma, then coming back to the states and having some people regard you as a "baby killer" for surrendering your life for the sake of your country?

Bravery doesn't mean that you're not afraid.

Bravery only means that you do what you need to even though you're scared.

People sign up to the army because it's a job that doesn't require many educational pre-requisites. The amount of people who's mentality actually mimics that of Uncle Sam is extremely minimal. tl;dr people join the army to make money, not to "fight the good fight, ya' hear".

Yeah, I understand, many soldiers do not expect to fight, they're there for the educational and monetary benefits. Unfortunately many take this as heroism when they are simply mercenaries. Fighting for your country is not a virtue, especially when people who are not in combat have to suffer, regardless of the nationality. There have been just conflicts where more lives have been saved than ended, but this is not the case here, nor is it the case in most wars. Courage is meaningless if you don't contribute anything positive. Suicide bombers are courageous. Mall shooters are courageous. Just because many soldiers are people who need money does not make them exempt for participating in something wrong. After all, the poor who steal out of necessity are prosecuted. People who go by feelings instead of logic and needs will call all soldiers saintly when most have not done anything more than the average person in reality. Not sure about you though, you seem like a fairly reasonable guy.

I'm all for saving lives, as should any sane human being. But the soldiers are not to be blame, the governing body ordering them to kill are. Do we blame the knife for the murderers actions? (Please don't turn this into an anti-gun debate, whoever might read this). I agree with your dissection of the word courage, however a lot of soldiers do make positive courageous decisions. If it's saving the life of another, or helping the spread goods, they are generally positive things. Of course, some soldiers do brutal, cruel things. But these actions occur everywhere in the world, whether it is a parent beating a child or the bullying/harassment of another, it is not only limited to soldiers. You have brave, righteous soldiers, and you have malevolent, cruel soldiers. Because they are people. And sometimes people are just dicks.

Yeah, for sure. There are many soldiers who work to improve the lives of those within the warring country through aid work, those I respect. But they're only there because of circumstance and any other soldier could have been assigned that position, but that does show the responsibility of the governments. Instead of playing these political games, governments could make it so soldiers actually could free the occupied population, like many supporters of war are told. There are definitely heroes in conflict, but while they should be respected, the over-idealization has made many people forget about what defines a hero.

Being able to bring a smile to someone's face without having to bring a frown to another's is a true hero, in my opinion.

Men are brave
We rescue kittens from burning buildings
We are afraid

A load of bollocks.
Atleast have some experience of what you claim.

Men are not strong because we go to war.
It's because we are chosen to.Women aint.
We are brave and we are merciless.
We would save a kitten or we would kill it and feel nothing.
We are afraid,because any day could be our last if we face real danger.
Or we can go against the fear an live as any day is our last.

If society didn't limit me to my gender boundries, I'd go to war, and rescue kittens from burning buildings, and be strong and fearless.

But instead,
"Watch your men go to war and greet them when they return." What if I want to stand by my men as an equal, and have his back, save my country, just the same?
"Don't be scared," I'm not scared, "there's nothing to be afraid of" I know, that's why I'm not scared, "If you want to cry, cry on me." I don't need to cry, I'm not a weak little girl.
"Don't go in there, it's dangerous, the men will rescue the kitten." Let me help.
"You're not strong enough." Let me prove myself
"you're just a woman." I'm a woman, yes, but I'm so much more than that, let me be more than that.

women ca go to war they just can't really be on the front line because generals fear that they will distract men because their instincts will tell them to go and protect the women instead of focus on You need to login to view this link far as I know this belief has never been tested.

My theory is that the women would tell them to go back to their post as well . But the generals and radical feminists refuse to even test out women on the front lines which I feel is a sad mistake since I know several women who are more atheletic and better at shooting then me .

I love this post.
"Men are strong, we go to war". Do you go to war? No? Then shut up.
Some women go to war too, what's the point?
"Men are brave, we rescue kittens from burning buildings". Do you do that? I doubt it. You're probably a normal guy who doesn't do any of above. Why feeling proud of what others do just because you share their gender? It's stupid.

Not all men do that as well as not all women don't.

And like I said
Men are afraid too.
If I was being sexist I would have said men aren't afraid and are much better than the women.
I was just showing how dumb of a dumb bitch she was being.
