Thing is, I sympathise with those who are against it.
I'm from Great Britain, a country which up until recent times (mid 20th century) had a great empire of countries taken over my military might.
Now don't get me wrong, I think the British Empire shaped the world in many good ways, in fact I reckon a lot of the world wouldn't be as civilised as
it is without our great empire.....but there were far too many atrocities involved for my liking.
Then we get to the 20th century, a more mature Britain stood out in the world, a civilisation to be admired, with many scientific and cultural
achievements to be proud of, the bloody days of colonisation behind us.
WW1 we fought a battle over a stupid reason that escalated worldwide, but it wasn't our fault, we just got dragged into it because it spread so far.
WW2, we tried to stop a madman from taking over the world and exterminating anyone he didn't deem fit, we fought for our freedom, and the freedom of
the world, in fact, it taught us a lesson and we disbanded the empire altogether.
Now we are being sent into wars over lies and economic issues? My God, what those poor chaps fought for in that second major conflict is being shat
upon from great heights!
When I joined, I wanted to make the world a better place, I wanted to help my country secure a better future for all of humanity, what a right
bollocks our leaders made of those dreams.
An army should be for defense, not making sure everyone reads from the same book.
